As the pandemic continues, the Build Back Better Act aims to provide critical assistance to American families

Consumer Action joined over 200 national, state and community organizations in thanking the House of Representatives for the momentous gains made in the Build Back Better Act, reinforcing the need to keep the package intact as it makes its way through the Senate, and urging swift passage onto signature by President Biden. By passing the historic Build Back Better bill, Congress is tackling some of the most important problems families face, by accomplishing things such as cutting taxes for working and middle class families, supporting child and elder care, making college more affordable, providing job training, and making the largest investment in battling climate change in our nation’s history.

The Build Back Better Act is landmark legislation that aims to drastically improve affordability and expand access to health insurance coverage, reduce racial health inequities, and transform the lives of millions of America’s families. The bill advances policies our communities have spent years—sometimes decades—fiercely advocating for, including closing the Medicaid coverage gap, allowing Medicare to negotiate fair drug prices, and investing in programs that address nutrition, education, housing, child care and climate change.
