Pelosi Statement on Report by Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth

Washington, D.C. — Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the release of the Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth’s final report, ‘Bridging the Divide,’ and documentary-style film, ‘Grit & Grace’:

“The Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth’s final report and unique film reflect the mission of our House Democratic Majority: forging a country where all our children can reach their fulfillment and live their American Dream.  With the release of its insightful and diligently prepared findings, the Select Committee is helping chart our nation’s path toward a fairer, more prosperous economy for all Americans. 

“Our Democratic Majority established the Select Committee in the spirit of President Franklin Roosevelt’s call for ‘a maximum of human liberty, not for a few, but for all.’  The historic achievements of the 117th Congress have forged vital progress in realizing that vision – sparking an unprecedented economic recovery while advancing equity, rebuilding our communities and creating good-paying, union jobs.  House Democrats recognize that more work needs to be done, and we are committed to pursuing the Select Committee’s recommendations for further action: from raising our nation’s minimum wage and enacting the PRO Act to securing free community college and permanently expanding the Child Tax Credit.

“The House is deeply grateful for the skilled leadership of Chairman Jim Himes and the tireless work of the entire Select Committee.  Since its inception last year, the Select Committee has dutifully studied America’s crisis of inequality, visiting communities across the country, listening to Americans’ personal stories and engaging with an array of labor, faith, business and community leaders.  As we continue fighting For The People, House Democrats will proudly carry on that work: bridging the divide, empowering every family and lifting up every community.”
