Rep. Pramila Jayapal Responds to Terry McAuliffe Telling Washington Democrats To ‘Figure It Out’
JAYAPAL: "Look, I think that Democrats who are running right now should be running on the fact that Democrats in Congress cut child poverty in half with the American Rescue Plan. Democrats got shots in arms and got more Americans vaccinated than we have seen — than we could have imagined when President Biden first came in. Democrats got money to small businesses in states like Virginia so that they could continue through Covid. Democrats held up state and local government. That’s what these candidates should be talking about. It does take time to negotiate. Certainly, Terry McAuliffe as a consummate politician understands that. And the reality is I think everybody should be supporting the fact that we need to get the entirety of the President's Build Back Better agenda to his desk. And this is the way we do it, by linking the two bills together."
