November 17, 2021
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Don Bacon (NE-02) today announced on the House floor that he will be voting against H.R. 5376, the Build Back Better Act.
A full clip of the video can be found here and some key quotes are below:
- President Biden, Leader Schumer, Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Sanders have made it clear they want to transform America using Reconciliation and the so-called Build Back Better Act.
- They’re trying to do this with a 50-50 Senate, a 3-seat majority in the House out of 435 members, and a President that won by just two states.
- Our nation does not desire to be a giant welfare state with ‘cradle to grave’ government oversight controlling our lives.
- The authors of this legislation have either misjudged or ignored where the country is at on these issues.
