Congressman Tim Ryan Statement on President Biden’s FY22 Budget
Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) today released the following statement in response to President Joe Biden’s FY22 budget. In addition to the transformative proposals in the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan, and among its many important components, President Biden’s budget invests in creating jobs, rebuilding our public health infrastructure, taking action on climate change, and strengthening America’s place in the world. Across every agency, President Biden’s budget has a relentless focus on fostering equity. This includes targeted investments in marginalized communities, efforts to reduce racial disparities in health and housing, a compassionate immigration system, and significant increases for civil rights enforcement.
“For too long in this country getting ahead has been about who you know and how much money you have. But starting today, we are changing that. With these big bold investments in the American worker and good-paying jobs of the future, we’re going to unrig the economy to help everyday people get ahead. We’re going to rebuild the middle class, fix our infrastructure, make headway on our climate goals, and dominate on the global stage again.
“Our nation is at a fork in the road right now and we can either double down on the policies of the past and keep lagging behind while hardworking men and women are barely getting by, or we can gather up the courage to forge a new path forward. President Biden has outlined just that kind of forward-thinking agenda. I look forward to working with the President and my House colleagues to bring this vision to reality and rebuild the American Dream for generations to come.”
