Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Richard Neal (D-MA) released the following statement after becoming Chairman-Designate of the House Committee on Ways & Means:


“I am grateful to my colleagues for trusting me with this responsibility. Taking on this new role is a true honor, one that I take extremely seriously and have worked toward throughout my time in Congress.


“We must use our majority on the Ways & Means Committee to advance policies that put American families first. I will continue my fight for tax policies that are fair to working families and small businesses. I will work with my colleagues to develop innovative solutions to rebuild our infrastructure needs. And as I have throughout my career, I will oppose efforts to privatize Social Security and slash Medicare and will propose new ways for Americans to save for retirement and access affordable health care. I look forward to helping lead Democrats’ efforts to increase opportunity for the American people and restore the integrity of the federal government.”
