For Our Future Statement on Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

Historic Legislation Would Lower Costs for Workers and Families, Boost the Clean Energy Economy, and Combat Inflation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, For Our Future Executive Director Sky Gallegos issued the following statement on the new deal reached by Congressional Democrats on a reconciliation bill – the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.

“While Republicans in Congress stand in the way of progress and refuse to address rising costs, President Biden and Democrats are delivering on their promise to fight inflation and drive down costs for workers and families.

“The time is now for Congress to pass the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. It will be a historic step forward to combat inflation, lower the cost of prescription drugs and health care, and boost our clean energy economy while addressing the climate crisis – all paid for by making big corporations pay their fair share.

“While we celebrate this deal and will push for its passage, it represents a step forward not a culmination. More must be done to continue to create shared economic prosperity for workers and families across our country.”
