Yesterday, Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act. A Biden triumph!
This bill will inject more than $370 billion into climate and energy programs aimed at helping the United States cut greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 40 percent below 2005 levels by the end of the decade. It also expands subsidies under the Affordable Care Act, as well as allowing Medicare to directly negotiate prices and capping recipients’ annual out of pocket expenses.
Not one Republican voted in the House or Senate for this historical climate, tax, and health package. Vice-President Harris’ tie-breaking vote in the Senate sent it to the House this week.
Thank you to our Missouri members, Representatives Cori Bush and Emanuel Cleaver, who joined with every other Democrat in the House, and every Democratic member of the Senate to make this bill a success! Not one Republican vote!
The answer is clear. We must send more Democrats to Washington! Please make a donation to the MDP today, so we can help elect more Democrats this November!
