MoveOn: Time to Finish the Job With A Once-In-A-Generation Opportunity On Infrastructure and Reconciliation
Statement by Nita Chaudhary, Chief of Programs at MoveOn:
“Now that the Senate has passed an infrastructure bill and initial $3.5 billion budget reconciliation instructions, Democrats must finish the job of this once-in-a-generation opportunity to pass significant legislation that truly meets the size and scale of what is needed.
“House Democrats should follow Speaker Pelosi’s plan to move both pieces of legislation together because both are essential. The House should also not further reduce the $3.5 billion reconciliation number – which is already a compromise – because we must fully meet the moment to fully fund the investments we need in infrastructure, care, climate, and citizenship.
“It is time for Democrats to be bold and not be constrained by politics as usual. The American people can not afford for Democrats to not fully seize this opportunity.”
