Press Release

San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the President’s budget:

“A federal budget should be a statement of our national values.  President Biden’s budget is an unequivocal declaration of the value that Democrats place on America’s workers and middle class families, who are the foundation of our nation’s strength and the key to Build Back Better.

“The Biden budget makes historic investments in the American workforce and economy.  It does so by seizing a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create millions of good-paying Americans jobs, supercharge America’s global competitiveness and power growth for generations to come.  After years of severe underinvestment, as our nation recovers from pandemic and economic crisis, now is the time to launch an ambitious and powerful blueprint for success with the American Jobs and Families Plans.  We will lower prescription drug costs and strengthen Medicare, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, while taking transformative action for families to lower child poverty and make improvements in housing, child care and other vital lifelines for families.

“Congressional Democrats look forward to working with the Biden-Harris Administration to enact this visionary budget, which will pave the path to opportunity and prosperity for our nation.  The Biden Budget is a budget For The People.”
