We’re building an economy that rewards the working people of this nation and not just those at the top.
My Build Back Better Agenda means more jobs, tax cuts, and lower costs – paid for by making the tax code more fair and making sure the wealthiest pay their fair share.

How can Senate Republicans threaten not to raise debt ceiling (the amount government can borrow) for Biden’s proposed spending on families when they raised it to pay for the former guy’s tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations?
Because that’s who they are.

Because of budget cuts, the IRS audits only HALF of large companies’ tax returns. That means there’s up to $ 235 billion in corporate tax benefits slipping under the radar.
The solution is clear: fund the IRS and audit massive corporations.https://t.co/y9wC1niubk

The same Republicans who are now crying about the deficit are the same people who voted for $ 2T in tax cuts for the wealth and corporations.
Don’t be fooled. The deficit is political tool used by Republicans to block laws that benefit the American people.
