WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark (MA-5) released the following statement after meeting with Congressional leaders and President Biden at the White House to discuss the reconciliation and infrastructure packages. 

“I’m grateful to President Biden for his absolute commitment to delivering results to everyday Americans. As Democrats, we are all dedicated to helping working families thrive -- that’s the heart and soul of the Build Back Better agenda. By creating jobs and lowering taxes and costs for families, we will not only recover, but also build a stronger, more inclusive economy. 

“The President’s vision ensures that we are looking forward instead of returning to the status quo, finally acknowledging the urgent climate crisis and the essential role of the care economy. Child care is and has always been infrastructure, and the success of women, families and our economy depends on the investments included in the President’s agenda.

“I am confident that we will reach the finish line and bring these transformational economic policies to life. We will meet this moment of historic challenges with historic progress.”
