Statement by Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Build Back Better Framework and Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal
After decades of inaction on some of the most pressing issues for American families, today the President put forward a historic economic growth framework that will make the biggest investment in tackling the climate crisis in history, cut the cost of child care in half for a majority of middle class families, make universal pre-K a reality, and make the biggest progress in lowering the cost of health care in over 10 years.
Out of the gate, this unprecedented framework was welcomed across the country—including by organized labor, civil rights groups, business, and the climate community—and by every kind of Democrat in Congress. Legislative text is starting to become public, and the road to passing both critical parts of the President’s plan to make our economy deliver for middle class families—not just the wealthy—is clearer than ever.
As the President said this morning, we are proud of the hard work we’ve done with Members of Congress over these last months, and we’re confident that soon we’ll pass both the Build Back Better Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal.
