Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the July jobs report:

“Today’s jobs report is decisive proof that Democrats’ Build Back Better economy is working.  Under President Biden and the Democratic Majorities in Congress, millions of good-paying jobs have been created, paychecks are surging, the economy is growing at the fastest rate in nearly forty years and the share of Americans living in poverty is set to reach the lowest level on record.

“Now, we must sustain this growth and ensure that all can share in its benefits, by passing transformative infrastructure and reconciliation bills that truly meet families’ needs.  At the same time, Democrats will continue to fight for families struggling as the delta variant accelerates – and we were proud this week to have secured a new eviction moratorium to prevent vulnerable families from being put on the street during this public health emergency.

“Congressional Democrats and President Biden will Build Back Better – with more jobs, cut taxes and lower costs for all.”
