today. We have the honor of participating in passing legislation for the people to build back better. As I always say with women for the Children. Uh, the, uh, this occasion would not have been possible without the vision of our great president President biden. Uh, he has said that the infrastructure bill was very, very important and we agree, but it was not the sum total of his vision for how we do build and building back better meant building back with many more people participating. This bill is monumental, It's historic, it's transformative. It's bigger than anything we've ever done. We have so much agreement within the bill. Should there be some disagreement And by and large we had to build scrubs so that we are technically, shall we say, um, eligible for the 51 votes in the Senate. That's what that was about. And then whatever comes out of the Senate, we'll be working together with them so that we have agreement when it comes back that I have absolutely no doubt. We, the biggest hurdle was to get the bill. They're the biggest, uh, uh, challenge was to meet the vision of President President biden. The House does not just write any bill that they think the Senate will pass. We find our common ground, but we have our own, shall we say personality about things and then we will reconcile whatever changes are needed as and sweet you ever strive to build back better. But it's a really cause for celebration for us now and we're not getting bogged down in long speeches or people's careers or what happens if this doesn't happen? What we're talking about is what has happened. And it's a glorious, glorious, historic, transformative piece of legislation for the people, for women, for the Children.
