“For far too long, the American economy has catered to the very rich and corporate interests – and left the middle class, small businesses, and the vulnerable behind. That is why I am so proud that this bill takes important steps to get our nation back on track, creating good-paying jobs, growing opportunity, and protecting the middle class and the vulnerable, indeed, leveling the playing field in the face of big corporations too prone to predatory practices."

With our funding bills this year, we will invest in the American people: creating good-paying jobs, growing opportunity, and providing a lifeline to the middle class, working families, small businesses, and the vulnerable."
