For Our Future Statement on Passage of Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

President Biden’s and Congressional Democrats’ Leadership Will 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 passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, which now goes to President Joe Biden to be signed into law.

“President Biden and Democrats in Congress have delivered for the American people. The Inflation Reduction Act will 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. It is a monumental achievement and step forward for working people and the future of our country.

“While Republicans in Congress stand in the way of progress and refuse to address rising costs, President Biden is fulfilling his commitment to make government work for working people.”
