Press Release

Representative Sharice Davids issued the following statement on the House passage of Build Back Better Act:

 

“I have been clear about my priorities on this bill, both on the policies included and the overall cost. I fought to exclude unnecessary IRS reporting requirements that would harm consumers, and I will work to see it improved in the Senate and to push against the tax provisions that would only benefit wealthy states and millionaires as the bill moves through the legislative process.

 

Though not final, the nonpartisan CBO score and prior Treasury estimates showed that the current package is fiscally responsible and paid for by making the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share. It is not perfect, but it is overwhelmingly good, and it delivers on the policies that our community has supported from the start: capping health care and prescription drug costs, closing the Medicaid coverage gap, tackling climate change, and lowering the cost of living for families on everyday things like health insurance, child care, and education.”
