Top House Democrats say “historic” spending bill will affect generations of Americans
EKO HOT BLOG reports that US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other key House Democrats talked to media after the House voted to approve President Biden’s massive spending measure.
“Today, we had the honor of participating in passing legislation for the people to build back better. As I always say, with women, for the children,” Pelosi stated.
She praised Biden, noting that while the infrastructure package was “very, very significant,” it wasn’t “the sum whole of his vision.”
Pelosi stated that she is particularly thrilled about the legislation’s provision for family medical leave.
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer called the Build Back Better Act a “historic piece of legislation.”
“This bill will speak for itself to millions and millions and millions and millions of Americans whose lives will be made more secure, more richer in terms of quality of life, whose educational opportunities will be greater, and whose job opportunities will be greatly enhanced. And America’s competitiveness in the world will be heightened for the 21st century,” Hoyer said.
“It’s big win for the people, for the average working men and women of America, for those who struggle every day and hope that somebody is on their side, somebody is listening to their pain and their struggle and their challenge,” Hoyer added. “This bill is an answer.”
Majority Whip James Clyburn said he thinks the act, combined with the infrastructure package and the American Rescue Plan Act, will address issues that the Covid-19 pandemic has exposed in the US.
“I always talk about this being a great country. But the fact that we have not allowed this greatness to be accessible and affordable for all of our citizens, these three pieces of legislation accomplish that in a big way,” he said.
