Duckworth: Inflation Reduction Act Will Save Money for Families, Tackle Climate Crisis and Make Corporations Pay Fair Share


[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) today issued the following statement after Senate Democrats passed the Inflation Reduction Act:

“This is a big deal: Senate Democrats—without a single Republican vote—passed historic changes that will put working Americans first by helping them save money on prescription drugs, fighting inflation, tackling the climate crisis to protect our planet for future generations, cutting the deficit by hundreds of billions and ensuring megacorporations pay their fair share. And we did it all in a way that protects every working family making less than $400,000 from seeing their taxes increase. This is going to have a real, positive impact on so many families, and I’m proud to have helped get it done.”
