Washington, D.C. — In response to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s latest round of ads targeting Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema and distorting the Biden Build Back Better plan to make investments beneficial to working- and middle-class families while ensuring rich corporations pay their fair share, Accountable.US released the following statement. 

“The U.S. Chamber — that is funded almost entirely by wealthy corporate interests and has spent millions lobbying to make wasteful corporate tax breaks permanent — is once again playing dress up as a group that represents everyday families. That doesn’t square with the reality they oppose the Build Back Better plan that would cut taxes and health costs for most Americans. Slick ads can’t hide the fact that all the Chamber cares about is protecting greedy corporations from paying their fair share, including companies that got taxpayer bailouts even as they profited during the pandemic,” said Kyle Herrig, president of Accountable.US.
“Any lawmaker that is the target of the Chamber’s misinformation campaign need only look to the polls to see the public is fully behind making corporations pay their fair share to help make investments that level the playing field for average workers, student and seniors.”
