Rep. Jayapal: ‘If You Care About Inflation, then Pass the Build Back Better Act’

‘The message really is, if you care about inflation, then pass the Build Back Better Act’

EXCERPT: 

JAYAPAL: “Well, the message really is, if you care about inflation then pass the Build Back Better Act. Because the things that we are dealing with right now are due to supply chain increases, they are due to hold ups, they're due to Covid problems, they are due to, you know, getting the economy back after such a devastating turn. And the way to fix that is to bring down costs in other areas. And so if we can’t immediately address some of the rising prices that are from the supply chain then let’s cut childcare costs in half, let’s cut prescription drug pricing costs significantly. Let’s actually make sure that we are dealing with health care costs in this country. Those are the things that are going to cut costs for Americans.”
