Joe Biden released his “Build Back Better” plan — a bold and comprehensive plan to help create millions of good-paying, union jobs and to build an inclusive economy where every American enjoys a fair return for their work and an equal chance to get ahead. While Republicans will stop at nothing to protect the wealthy, Joe Biden’s plan invests in a comprehensive manufacturing and innovation strategy, and prioritizes the protection of workers. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer praised Vice President Biden’s plan:

“Today, Joe Biden planted a flag for American workers and for American ingenuity,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “At a time when millions of Americans’ lives and livelihoods are being devastated, our country needs a bold, inclusion vision for our economic future: one that is made in all of America by all of America’s workers. Donald Trump has repeatedly shown the American people that his only priority is the corporate special interests that he is beholden to, not the public’s interest. America desperately needs and deserves a leader who will oversee an economic recovery that works for working families. Joe Biden has stepped up to the plate and laid the groundwork for rebuilding not only this economy, but American’s faith in government.”

“Donald Trump’s abject failure in leadership has left our country unprepared to handle a pandemic that has already left more than 130,000 Americans dead, and millions without jobs or without any sense of financial security,” said Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. “It’s evident that Trump’s strategy in combating this virus and repairing the economy is to put his head in the sand and leave working families to fend for themselves. Joe Biden’s plan for economic recovery is the much-needed shot in the arm this country needs and deserves. American workers need a leader who puts their safety and financial future ahead of partisan politics and Biden’s plan details the necessary steps forward to economic recovery.”
