PITTSBURGH — Today, Jerry Dickinson, candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district applauded Congress for passing the Build Back Better bill.

In a statement, Dickinson said:

“I want to thank all the members of the House of Representatives who voted to pass the Build Back Better Act today. This is truly a transformative piece of legislation and a historic investment in our future. As the father of two young girls, I can sleep better at night knowing that our government is taking bold action to address climate change, expanding access to affordable health care, and strengthening the middle class.

“The breadth and depth of the legislation cannot be understated. The opportunity to close the inequality gap is immense, and the legislation addresses social, economic, and racial inequities that have been ignored for far too long. The wealthiest few and big corporations will pay their fair share. This landmark piece of legislation promises to transform America for the better.”

Jerry Dickinson is a constitutional law professor at the University of Pittsburgh, and a Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district. A product of the foster system in Pittsburgh, Dickinson saw firsthand the systematic challenges that cause and perpetuate social and racial inequality. He beat the odds and has dedicated his life to tackling the structural problems he has witnessed and lived through. In Congress, he will bring the energy and perspective needed to lift those left behind, and truly create opportunity for all.
