Houlahan Issues Response to Senator Manchin’s BBB Comments
Washington, December 19, 2021
WASHINGTON – Today, Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) issued the following statement:
"The Build Back Better Act is not the President’s agenda," said Houlahan. "It’s the people’s agenda. This package includes policies that center on American workers, families, students, and the only planet we have—it’s worth fighting for. In my few short years down in Washington, I’ve come to understand that legislation like BBB can be much like Schrödinger’s cat—when you think it’s alive, it’s dead. When you think it’s done, it lives. It’s not over until it’s over. It’s too important to look away and give up the ghost. Whether our community is beating back COVID or rebuilding after a devastating hurricane, we don’t give up. I won’t either. It’s too important that we deliver legislation that will improve the lives of millions at this pivotal time in our country’s history."
