All of State’s Democratic Members Support President Biden’s Transformative Build Back Better Plan
TRENTON, NJ — New Jersey Democratic State Committee Chairman LeRoy J. Jones, Jr., is releasing the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan being passed by the House of Representatives today. The bill received the unanimous support of the state’s Democratic House delegation, representing a critical moment of unity that Chairman Jones has publicly called for throughout the process of passing the BBB bill and the Bipartisan Infrastructure act. Chairman Jones’ statement is below:
“Today is a historic moment for our country, with Congress taking another step towards passing President Joe Biden’s bold, transformative agenda and with New Jersey Democrats leading the way in making it happen. I am thankful to each member of our Democratic Congressional delegation for their hard work and dedication in passing this bill, which will hopefully be adopted by the U.S. Senate and signed into law by the President.
The message of the recent election is loud and clear: many people throughout our state and our country are struggling and need a helping hand during these turbulent times. The Build Back Better act is exactly what we need at this critical moment to reassure the American people that the Democratic Party stands with working and middle class families. Our party is the party of progress and action, and this bill will have a dramatically positive impact on our economy, on our families and on our communities. From capping the cost of childcare to 7% of a family’s income, to providing national universal Pre-K, to allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices and limiting the cost of Insulin to $35 per month, to increasing the SALT deduction to lower taxes for middle class New Jerseyans and so much more, this landmark legislation will deliver real results for working families.
As we head into the 2022 midterm elections, every Democrat should be bringing President Biden’s message to the people and making sure they see clearly that our party is fighting for them. As Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, I feel more optimistic now about our country and our state’s future than I ever have, and I look forward to making that case in the upcoming campaign.”
