Dingell Statement on Biden Budget Proposal
Washington, March 9, 2023
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-06) released the following statement on President Biden’s proposed budget for FY2024.
“President Biden has always said we need to build the economy from the bottom up and the middle out, and that’s exactly what this budget will do by continuing to invest in American workers and industries. In the past two years, we have created more than 12 million American jobs, unemployment has fallen to its lowest level in more than 50 years, and we have seen the most new small business applications on record.“At the same time, this budget will continue to give working families breathing room by lowering everyday costs, from childcare to health insurance to energy. This budget strengthens and protects Medicare and Social Security, which are a part of the fabric of our country, and critical to making sure future generations can retire and age with dignity after a life of hard work. And this will all be done responsibly – by ensuring the wealthy and corporations finally pay what they owe. We will continue to put people over politics by investing in workers and families.”
