Nursing mothers should never be forced to risk their health or their baby’s health in order to keep their jobs.   My #PUMPAct would ensure that millions of nursing mothers have the time and privacy they need to pump at work.

The #BuildBackBetterAct is our chance to make government work for working people — and it is completely paid for by making the wealthy pay their fair share. Here's some of what we can accomplish for working families⤵️

School supplies. Gas. Rent. These are just a few of the impactful ways that #LA02 constituents are spending their #ChildTaxCredit $$. The #BuildBackBetter Act would continue the #CTC past the current expiration date of 12/31. Let’s invest in our kids & pass this bill.

For too long, the economy has worked well for the wealthy while stacking the deck against working Americans. #BuildBackBetter will make it work well for ALL. It’s time to deal working Americans back in.

Yesterday, I visited the Oval Office for the first time. As I sat across from @POTUS to discuss how we #BuildBackBetter, I thought of my parents—a bracero and housekeeper—who worked tirelessly so I could have a better life. Now, it's my turn to pay it forward. #TimeToDeliver

Investing in the #CareEconomy would generate $4.6 billion in new economic activity in MI. It’s the right thing to do, economically and morally. Check for yourself why it needs to be prioritized in the #BuildBackBetter agenda. epi.org/child-care-costs-in-…

More than half of working families across #MA struggle to find child care. That’s why we urgently need the #BuildBackBetter Act, which will expand access to affordable, quality care for families everywhere!

For a long time, this economy has worked great for the folks at the top, while hardworking Americans have been cut out of the deal. #BuildBackBetter presents a historic opportunity to change that and invest in hardworking Americans. newsweek.com/2018-majority-m…

Childcare facilities are facing high turnover & the quality of care has decreased. #Childcare workers are struggling to make ends meet - #BuildBackBetter Act will make key investments in the care economy.

When @POTUS visits Scranton today, we'll be discussing the ways our plans will make NEPA stronger -- with investments in bringing Amtrak passenger rail back, rebuilding roads, and transforming former mining sites into new job-creating opportunities. poconorecord.com/story/news/…

I will not stand by as discriminatory voter laws, partisan gerrymandering, and dark money drown out the voices of Americans. We need the #FreedomToVote Act to ensure our elections reflect the will of the people.

Thanks to @POTUS & @HouseDemocrats, we’re leading the world in post-pandemic economic recovery! Now, let’s use that momentum to usher in a new age of American progress — one centered around building an economy that supports working families instead of just the wealthy few.

The Build Back Better Act is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to support children, families, & workers by expanding paid family & medical leave, making childcare more accessible, fixing our broken long-term care system, & much more. We must get this done because #CareCantWait!

The #ChildTaxCredit is cutting taxes for hardworking families like Annie’s so they can afford necessities like insurance. #DeliveringForThePeople @RepJoeNeguse
