The “Build Back Better Act,” also referred to as the reconciliation bill, is a critical step towards helping our country and our planet to begin healing. But, Sen. Joe Manchin (conservative Democrat from West Virginia) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (conservative Democrat from Arizona) have managed to take out almost all of our progressive priorities during the so-called negotiations. Negotiating for lower drug prices, which nearly 90% of Americans want, has been taken out to please drug companies. The most important climate provisions have been taken out to please fossil fuel companies. The billionaires tax has been taken out to please… billionaires. None of Trump’s tax cuts have been rolled back. Two years of free community college is out. And now to add insult to injury, paid family leave was taken out at the very end. Progressives, however, have a chance to stand strong and do what they went to DC to do – fight for our families. Democrats are now agreeing with Republicans that parents do not deserve to have paid time off work when they have a child, or need to care for a sick loved one. That’s a bridge too far. “Paid leave is literally the one piece of this package that could touch any household in America, at any of the most happy or scary times in their lives. The fact that it’s comprehensive means that it is usable by people across life circumstances, age, family types. It recognizes that giving and receiving care is a basic need, and it’s a uniting policy in a way that so few are these days.” -Vicki Shabo, senior fellow for paid leave policy and strategy at New America’s Better Life Lab Senator Bernie Sanders stated: “So, it seems to me, almost every sensible progressive revenue option that the president wants… that the American people want… that I want… seems to be sabotaged.” If Democrats agree to take paid family, medical leave out of the bill, we say: No Deal. **WATCH THE VIDEO** <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/q2w5EztxRAc" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

# **About this Petition** On September 20, 2021, Shantel Arnold was assaulted by a Jefferson Parish, Louisiana police officer right after being assaulted by a group of neighborhood boys. According to reports, Arnold was slammed to the ground by a group of boys, who then proceeded to strike her while she was on the ground and bystanders laughed. Her 71-year-old stepfather had to chase them away. A police officer, who remains unnamed, then saw her walking. He told her to stop and asked what happened. She explained the assault and that she just wanted to go home. Arnold continued to walk home and, according to witnesses, the officer stopped his car, grabbed her and threw her to the ground a couple of times so violently that he ripped out some of her braids. Arnold was treated for bruises, scratches, and a busted lip. She now has recurring headaches. The unidentified police officer is currently under investigation. We call on the Jefferson Parish, Louisiana Sheriff, Joseph P. Lopinto, III, to fire the unnamed police officer. This brutal attack would never be allowed in any place of work. It most definitely should not be tolerated in our police departments. **WATCH THE ORIGINAL REPORT** <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/TpV1iBis7iY" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> **WATCH THE PETITION ANNOUNCEMENT** <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/EiewhOZd_7o" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

There are currently two infrastructure bills making their way through Congress. One is a robust bill that invests in climate action, childcare, jobs, and other desperately-needed infrastructure, but is only supported by Democrats, so it will only pass on a strict party-line vote through reconciliation. The other is a watered-down sham described as the "Bipartisan bill" that can theoretically attract support from Republicans, but only because it offers an insultingly small fraction of the investment as the other bill. Corporate Democrats like Kyrsten Sinema are now pushing for a vote on the "Bipartisan Bill," but if that bill gets voted on first in the House, the more substantial, Democrat-only bill will be DOA and never pass. This is a trap. We can't allow that to happen. For that reason we, the undersigned, insist: NO HOUSE DEMOCRAT SHOULD VOTE FOR THE BIPARTISAN INFRASTRUCTURE BILL UNTIL THEY VOTE ON THE DEMOCRATIC VERSION OF THE BILL.
