Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released this statement on the September jobs report:
“The September jobs report is additional proof of the need for Democrats’ jobs-creating Build Back Better agenda. While historic progress to create jobs, lower unemployment and defeat the pandemic has been forged under President Biden and Congressional Democrats, more must be done to protect families’ financial security now and for generations to come.
“Build Back Better will be transformative for America’s workers and middle class. We must Build Back Better for jobs: jobs in health care by strengthening the ACA, delivering the Medicaid expansion to those in need and improving Medicare benefits; jobs in family health with the Biden Child Tax Credit, child care, universal pre-school, home health care, family and medical leave, and more; and jobs in climate by creating the clean energy economy of the future.
“Congressional Democrats and President Biden will Build Back Better For The People – with more jobs, cut taxes and lower costs for all.”
