Rep. Price Celebrates President Biden’s American Families Plan
DURHAM, NC (April 28, 2021) – Today, Congressman David Price (NC-04) released a statement in strong support of President Joe Biden’s American Families Plan:
“Today, President Biden presented a proposal that responds directly to families’ needs across America,” said Congressman David Price. “Chronic underinvestment in our nation’s children, families, students, and care infrastructure limits access to opportunity and threatens our global competitiveness. Virtual learning and increased care responsibilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic have further enhanced the need for guaranteed family and medical leave policies, modernized unemployment insurance, and high-quality child care programs.”
“The American Families Plan would provide additional economic security to our nation’s families through more affordable health care, and child care costs for working families. It would also bolster our nation’s education system, preparing the next generation for the modern workforce with free universal pre-school for three and four-year olds, tuition-free two-year community college, more generous Pell Grants, and targeted investments to recruit and retain a diverse teacher workforce. I strongly support the American Families Plan—it’s the long overdue lifeline that American families and students need to thrive.”
