STATEMENT FROM BBT EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DANIELLE MELFI ON CONGRESSIONAL GOP’S EXTREME PLATFORM
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Building Back Together Executive Director Danielle Melfi released the following statement after Congressional GOP leadership announced their “Commitment to America” policy platform:
“Republicans in Congress don’t have a ‘commitment’ to the working families of this country. Instead, they’re committed to raising the cost of living in America, defending special interests and big corporations, weakening gun safety laws, and eliminating fundamental rights and freedoms for millions by imposing a nationwide abortion ban.
“Actions speak louder than words, and Republicans in Congress have consistently gone against the interests of middle class families, opposing President Biden’s actions to lower costs, strengthen manufacturing here in America, bring supply chains back from China, and hold Big Oil accountable for price gouging.
“President Biden isn’t just claiming to stand up for middle class families; he’s actually doing it.”
