Urge Congress to Support All Provisions of the Build Back Better Agenda

On September 27th, 2021, the Build Back Better Act was introduced in the House of Representatives by Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY). The Build Back Better bill builds upon the American Rescue Plan by providing countless investments that will uplift our economy after the devastating effects of COVID-19. The bill will be passed through budget reconciliation, which is a process that allows the bill to bypass the Senate filibuster and requires only a simple majority to pass. 

The agenda contains a multitude of transformative investments. It has been described by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as the "most consequential piece of legislation for working people, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor since [Franklin Delano Roosevelt] and the New Deal of the 1930s." Amid a pandemic that has contributed to staggering levels of income inequality, this $3.5 trillion agenda promises change. While it is likely that spending will be reduced, we must demand that Congress holds firm in its commitment to invest in vulnerable communities. Now is the time for bold action. Sweeping investment is necessary to bring about meaningful recovery for Americans who have been laid bare by the pandemic. We must ensure that key provisions, like the following, are included:

 

As a Matthew 25 Church, we are called to act boldly and compassionately to eradicate systemic poverty. Speaking out in favor of policies that will make a difference in the lives of millions of Americans is essential to this call. It is more critical than ever that we take action and demand that the Build Back Better Agenda be passed, with all its comprehensive investments included. 

Contact your members of Congress today and urge them to support these provisions of the Build Back Better Agenda!
