MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting Weighs in on Reconciliation Negotiations in Congress

Statement by Rahna Epting, Executive Director of MoveOn, on Reconciliation Negotiations in Congress:

“It is beyond absurd that we are talking about choosing between child care and elder care or tax cuts to families and free community college. We have more than enough resources to do all of it. We’re the richest country on earth. These false choices are ridiculous and harmful. We are still in the middle of a historic pandemic and the economy hasn’t come close to recovering yet. This is not a time for politics as usual or tired and outdated austerity policies. The ultra rich and huge corporations have made massive profits in the middle of this pandemic. Simply making them pay their fair share will be more than enough money to cover these essential policies. This is a once in a generation moment for Congress to act and to act boldly to meet this moment.”
