MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting Statement on Manchin’s Fox News Sunday Comments on Build Back Better
“No one senator should be able to deny hundreds of millions of Americans the economic relief that Build Back Better will bring. Senator Joe Manchin’s comments this morning cannot and will not be the final word here.
“Too much is at stake for families across this country. Build Back Better is essential for lowering the costs for families, providing middle-class tax cuts for families, providing elder care and child care, and fighting climate change.
“This isn’t nice to have legislation; it is must-pass legislation. And we refuse to allow any individual Senator to deny something the majority of the country wants and needs. Our millions of members are not deterred. We will continue to fight every day to get Build Back Better across the finish line.”
