AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement on the unveiling of President Biden’s Build Back Better Framework:
“Just like we’ve seen all year long from the Biden-Harris administration, when Democrats are in charge, we get the job done. Texas Democrats are excited to see President Biden moving forward with his Build Back Better Framework — a historic push to make life better for working families in Texas and across the country. This framework will provide two years of free preschool for every 3- and 4- year old in the country, help more seniors get quality, affordable health care, fight climate change to keep our communities safe from extreme weather, and put money back in the pockets of families and working Texans.
“Texans have been suffering for far too long under Republican leadership — with Greg Abbott putting profit over people again and again. President Biden’s ambitious plan will counter the worst of Abbott’s attacks, and make sure that when Republican leaders fail to do their jobs, Texans will still have the support they need thanks to Democrats. This is what it looks like to put kids, families, and working folks first.
“I thank our federal Democratic lawmakers for working tirelessly to move this agenda forward, including our dedicated Texas Democratic members of Congress. Today’s news is a major step towards delivering for families across our country, and I look forward to seeing Congress take up this legislation, and create the solutions Texas families need.”
