Today’s Action: Tell your senators to pass the Build Back Better Act!

For months, corporate Democrat Joe Manchin has been stalling action on the transformative Build Back Better Act – and the stalemate is preventing millions of working families across America from getting historic investments in childcare, paid family and medical leave, healthcare, and universal pre-k education. His biggest sticking point? A poverty-busting permanent child tax credit that lifted three million children out of poverty in July 2021 alone.

Miners from West Virginia, his own constituents, are fighting for him to support the bill so that some renewable energy efforts are directed to coal-heavy regions. And on top of that, the bill supports health initiatives for miners with black lung disease. Manchin is neglecting his own constituents’ needs, and the rest of working America, by preventing the passage of the Build Back Better Act.

We need the Build Back Better Act, and we need it as soon as possible – without allowing Manchin to negotiate away any more key priorities.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and demand they fight to keep all of the current progressive initiatives in the Build Back Better Act!

The Build Back Better Act has the power to transform the United States into a global force for cleaner energy and real emissions reduction. It would also ensure that working families pay no more than 7% of their income for childcare, which would save working families a LOT of money. And with a cost largely footed by the wealthiest households and corporate America, there’s zero reason to withhold passage or change its contents.

The only things standing in the way of real, meaningful change for working families across the country are greedy corporate politicians who would rather cash in with big oil and big pharma than keep their promises.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and remind them America’s future depends on their commitment to the passage of the Build Back Better Act!
