August 12, 2022

New York, NY – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released the following statement today as the House passed the Inflation Reduction Act and sent it to the President’s desk:

“Democrats got it done! For the people who thought Washington was broken and couldn’t get things done, Democrats showed we can deliver real change that matters to everyday Americans. After the previous administration made big promises but failed to deliver, Senate and House Democrats along with President Biden have taken action to address many of the challenges faced by American families.

“The House today passed the historic Inflation Reduction Act that will lower costs for middle-class families, close tax loopholes for the rich and big corporations, take the most significant action ever to fight the climate crisis, and create good-paying jobs. Now the Inflation Reduction Act is headed to President Biden’s desk and will deliver climate justice and help for America’s working families.

“This legislation tops off a highly productive six weeks that serves as a testament to Democrats’ persistence and hard work to deliver on our promise to the American people.”
