Inflation Reduction Act is a Big Win for America and for Biden
Today President Biden signed into law the Inflation Reduction Act, a package of legislation that contains transformational investments to protect our planet’s future and strengthen our nation’s health care system for everyone. In response to the news, Voto Latino president and CEO María Teresa Kumar issued the following statement:
“Today’s signing ceremony is of historical import for the nation, the planet and the American people regardless of who they voted for two years ago.
“Voters turned out in record numbers because they wanted action like this. We applaud President Biden for fighting long and hard for this accomplishment. He’s sticking to the promises he made to the American people despite relentless, irresponsible Republican obstruction every step of the way.
“This legislation gives voters a clear indication of who’s on their side as we head into the midterm elections with $375 billion to address our climate crises and after decades of fighting – allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug pricing. It’s critical that the President and his allies continue to communicate this big win to key voters; Voto Latino will be working overtime to do exactly that. When we vote, it matters. Voting works.”
