Americans for Prosperity Press Release

Biden’s Veto: An Insult to Every Hardworking American

Mar 21, 2023 by AFP

ARLINGTON, VA—Americans for Prosperity’s Vice President of Government Affairs Akash Chougule made the following statement on President Biden’s first veto:

“Today’s veto is an insult to every hardworking American who wants to save for their future – not fund an extreme political agenda. Americans sent a clear message to President Biden warning him not to use their 401ks to invest in ESG. Yet despite this bipartisan mandate from Congress, President Biden chose to double down on a progressive agenda item that will put the savings of countless Americans at risk. Today’s decision will only make life harder for families struggling with the historic inflation and economic volatility unleashed by the Biden Administration’s failed policies.”

In February, AFP launched a targeted digital ad campaign urging voters near retirement to make their voices heard and send a resolution of disapproval to President Biden’s desk. AFP wrote to members of Congress and joined more than 100 officials and organizations in calling on Congress to stop Biden from politicizing Americans’ retirement savings.
