STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT BIDEN PROTECTING AMERICANS’ FREEDOM TO INVEST FROM BBT EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DANIELLE MELFI
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Building Back Together Executive Director Danielle Melfi released the following statement after President Biden vetoed misguided MAGA legislation that would hurt retirement security for working families:
“While the president is focused on the issues working families care about – lowering costs, creating good-paying union jobs, and growing our economy – Congressional Republicans are messing with the hard-earned retirement savings of millions, including police officers, firefighters, teachers, and other public servants.
“Republicans in Congress want to force investment managers to follow an extreme MAGA agenda – even if it means putting public servants’ retirement savings at risk. President Biden won’t let that happen. He’s willing to work across the aisle on common-sense solutions to improve the lives of retirees and working families – but he won’t endorse political games that do the opposite.”
