Three things everyone should know about the Inflation Reduction Act:
This week President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act – with this law, the American people won and special interests lost. Here are the three things everyone should know:
1. Democrats are lowering health care, prescription drug, and utility costs for working families.
2. Democrats sided with the American people and Republicans sided with special interests. Every single Republican opposed requiring big corporations to pay their fair share, and lowering costs for families.
3. President Biden and Democrats demonstrated that the government can work for working families. Read President Biden’s full op-ed here.
Inflation Reduction Act is incredibly popular with voters: Morning Consult / POLITICO polling released this week shows that key provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act including capping prescription drug cost increases, allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices, and reducing the deficit all receive at least +60 net approval. Navigator Polling released today shows two out of three Americans support the Inflation Reduction Act, and even a majority of Republicans support many of the key provisions of the law. Every congressional Republican sided with special interests to vote against this popular legislation.
