Today’s Action: Pass the Build Back Better Act with all of the current progressive initiatives!

Our communities desperately need every part of the Build Back Better Act. Getting the infrastructure package to Biden’s desk was essential, but the job is still decidedly unfinished. Pundits call BBBA a spending bill, but this is spending in the same way that buying Apple stock is spending. These are investments that will pay off big time, and legislators absolutely must invest in communities they were elected to serve.

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

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

The benefits of the Build Back Better Act simply cannot be overstated — historic investments in childcare, paid family and medical leave, expanded Medicare and Medicaid, and universal pre-k education, as well as a poverty-busting permanent child tax credit are all on the line. Furthermore, it could transform the United States into a global force for cleaner energy and real emissions reduction. With a cost largely footed by the wealthiest households and corporate America, there’s zero reason to withhold its passage or change its contents.

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

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling for Rep. Gosar to be expelled from Congress, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
