Durbin: America Can't Pinch Pennies When It Comes To Investing In Our Future
WASHINGTON – In a speech on the Senate floor, U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) today highlighted important provisions in President Biden’s American Jobs Plan and spoke about the importance of going big and bold when investing in the future. During his speech, Durbin thanked Republican colleagues for their counter-proposal to the President’s American Jobs Plan, but said it fails to meet a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform America and win the 21st century.
“We need an infrastructure plan that is a blueprint for the world of tomorrow, not just a patchwork quilt focused on yesterday,” Durbin said. “This is a unifying vision for the future. It's a model for global leadership. So let's not balk at the cost of making it a reality. This is not the time to think small. We're talking about a transformative undertaking, and that's part of what America has always been about.”

President Biden’s American Jobs Plan makes historic investments in clean energy, transportation infrastructure, and broadband. It will give kids an honest shot to thrive by eliminating lead pipes and service lines from drinking water systems and making safe, affordable housing a reality for millions of working families.
