Chair Grijalva Statement on Build Back Better Negotiations

Tucson, Ariz. – Chair Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) issued the following statement today on Build Back Better negotiations.

 “The American people need Senator Manchin to work with President Biden until they reach a compromise that meets the country’s needs. Unfortunately, up to now, too much power has been concentrated in too few hands  throughout this process, and it’s produced nothing but gridlock and frustration. The credibility of our form of government hangs on our ability to resolve problems together rather than allow the wealthy and powerful to ignore them on our behalf. Our country has serious economic and environmental problems that demand government action. If we don’t take that action, we’ll look back at this moment as a decisive wrong turn in the life of our country.”
