Lombardi Challenges Underwood to Debate Build Back Better

Better Name for It Is Bankrupt America Bill


Manhattan, IL/January 2022 – Today, Jack Lombardi, Republican Congressional candidate for Illinois’ Fourteenth Congressional District challenged Democrat Lauren Underwood to a debate in the 14th district over Joe Biden’s Build Back Better bill that she and other Democrats are advocating. Lombardi said a better name for the bill would be the Bankrupt America Bill. Lombardi challenged Underwood to a series of Lincoln/Douglas style debates in all the counties that encompass the 14th District. He said voters could listen to both him and Underwood debate the bill and make their own determination on the bill. Lombardi is confident that after the debates, voters will agree that Build Back Better is bad for the 14th District and bad for America.

“Illinois is known for giving us the famed Lincoln/Douglas debates, so in that vein, I challenged Lauren Underwood to a series of debates on Build Back Better or as I call it, Bankrupt America, in each county of the 14th District,” said Jack Lombardi. “Voters have a right to hear the two sides of this dangerous bill that if passed will change the very fabric of our nation.

“Voters should hear Representative Underwood make her case on the bill and I will make the case in opposition, and then they can make up their minds,” concluded Lombardi. “A clean debate on the issue is good government at its finest, and I am sure that she will agree unless she feels she cannot defend the bill to the voters.”
