This Is the Leadership America’s Moms Want and Need
“At this time when the country’s moms and families are struggling with the pandemic, fast-rising prices, and our need to create the kind of care infrastructure every country needs, we are very pleased to learn President Biden will take time during his State of the Union address tomorrow night to discuss the importance of lowering families’ costs – including child care, pre-K, and prescription drugs – and adopting a comprehensive national paid leave program, as well as ensuring paycheck fairness, raising the minimum wage, and providing direct tax relief to struggling families. These are the policies that matter most to America’s moms because they support economic security and stability for families, strengthen businesses, and help our economy thrive.
“President Biden and Vice President Harris are delivering the leadership America’s moms want and need. The U.S. Senate must step up now. For America’s moms, care simply can’t wait any longer.”
