‘Big, Bold Change’: Democrats Unveil $3.5 Trillion Budget Blueprint
Senate Democrats hope to pass the budget blueprint by the end of the week. It would boost spending on health care, child and elder care, education and climate change, while bypassing an expected Republican filibuster.
Senate Democrats unveiled our budget resolution with reconciliation instructions, which is the first step in unlocking the legislative process for a budget reconciliation bill later this year. The Democratic budget will be the most significant legislation for American families since the era of the New Deal and the Great Society. It is big, bold change, the kind of change America thirsts for. It will lower costs for Americans. It will cut taxes for American families. It will create millions of jobs while tackling the climate crisis, and it will be paid for by wealthy paying their fair share. The divisions in our country and our politics today have their roots in the decline of economic mobility. Now, the American people don’t expect one piece of legislation to solve all our nation’s ills. No single law can do that. But we have to start in a bold, strong way, rebuilding the basic social contract for middle-class American families and for everyone struggling to get there, a promise of equal opportunity and equality, helping middle-class Americans stay in the middle class, building ladders to help others climb into that middle class. And at its core, that’s what this budget is all about.
