Urge Congress to Pass the Inflation Reduction Act

Lower healthcare and energy costs, combat climate change, and make the tax code fairer.

Take Action

Tell Congress to Pass the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

After many months of negotiation, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced agreement on a legislative package using the budget reconciliation process. Since this process requires a simple majority for passage—instead of the usual 60 votes—the package is filibuster-proof.  

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is a victory for working families. It would lower healthcare and energy costs, combat climate change, make the tax code fairer, reduce the deficit, and more. Specifically, it would:  

  • Allow Medicare to negotiate the price of widely used prescription drugs
  • Extend subsidies that lower Affordable Care Act premiums
  • Support programs to accelerate the use of clean energy and reduce emissions
  • Impose a minimum tax on corporations and enhance IRS enforcement
