Working families are the backbone of the American economy and inflation is robbing our ability to support ourselves and our families. The Covid-19 pandemic proved that hard-working Americans are the real heroic patriots and are some of the hardest hit by inflation.
Biden is doing what he can by working with OPEC to lower gas prices, and the Federal Reserve is increasing interest rates to slow inflation.
Democrats Congress are doing what they can but Republicans have obstructed Democratic bills to:
- help lower gas prices
- reduce prescription drug prices
- provide child care subsidies
- extend health insurance subsidies
To bypass Republican obstruction and address inflation, we need to be able to control the agenda in Congress.
Democrats have a slight majority in Congress, but not a controlling majority
We need more Democratic representatives in Washington who will work on our behalf.
