Rep. Adams Unveils “A Better Deal” Agenda for the American People

Jul 24, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) today announced Democrats’ new economic agenda for the American people – A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.

“For too long, hard-working men and women across our nation have been left out and left behind,” said Congresswoman Adams.  “North Carolinians deserve A Better Deal that puts them first – not failed proposals from President Trump that tilt the playing field in favor of corporations and the super-rich.  Democrats are proud to unveil a bold legislative agenda that provides solutions to create a brighter, more secure economic future for Americans.”

A Better Deal centers on three core objectives: creating millions more good-paying, full time jobs and raising wages, lowering the cost of living for America’s families, and building an economy that gives every American the tools to succeed in the 21st century. 

Democrats’ new economic agenda includes bold, effective ideas to support hard-working Americans, including:

Creating good-paying, full-time jobs for 10 million more Americans in the next five years;

Lowering the cost of prescription drugs and ending outrageous drug price gouging;

Cracking down on monopolies and big corporate mergers that hurt consumers, workers and competition.

A Better Deal recognizes that the best way to grow the economy is to strengthen the middle class and those working to get there, not to give handouts to corporations and the super-rich. While Republicans continue to push the same old trickle-down economics, Democrats are making sure that the government is on the side of working Americans, not those at the top.
