The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Congressman Dan Kildee (D-MI).
(In this week’s address, Representative Kildee discusses the Flint water crisis and Democrats’ Better Deal legislation to rebuild America’s infrastructure, with $1 trillion to rebuild crumbling roads, bridges and water systems across America.)
This week, House Democrats joined me in Flint to sit down with families and see the progress being made to replace lead pipes with the funds from Congress. While the Flint water crisis has faded from the national headlines, this visit is a reminder that the crisis is not over. […] “Cities and towns across America have been left behind by the Republican-led Congress. Just this week, House Republicans voted to cut $300 million for repairs to water systems. Republicans have failed to take up any meaningful legislation to rebuild America’s aging infrastructure.
“Americans drive on crumbling roads and bridges. Instead of having cutting-edge schools, millions of students are in buildings that are unsafe and outdated. In the twenty-first century, we still have American families without access to high speed internet. We have many communities that have unsafe drinking water, not getting help from the federal government to replace those dangerous water systems. […]
“We have a bold plan to rebuild America’s infrastructure, with $1 trillion to rebuild crumbling roads, bridges and water systems across America. Our plan puts Americans to work, creating 16 million good-paying jobs, that can support a family. Putting Americans back to work rebuilding our infrastructure, makes us more competitive in the global economy and unleashes opportunity all across this country.
