REP. NICOLE MALLIOTAKIS: Well, I think the Build Back Better bill, as is, is dead. Republicans unanimously voted against it in the House. We see Senator Manchin coming out. I think there’s other Democrats, quite frankly, in the Senate who are not comfortable voting for this bill.
People understand that when taxpayers pay taxes, they expect certain things in return, and there are obvious things like national security, making sure we have a strong defense, making sure that we have money for quality education in public school systems, Medicare for our seniors, and of course, infrastructure. We’ve got to modernize our nation and keep up with pace and that brings GDP money in revenue in.
