President Biden and Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act works to cut health care, prescription drug, and energy costs for Georgians. By extending health care coverage to more than half a million Black Americans, lowering costs, and advancing environmental justice, the Inflation Reduction Act delivers for Black communities in Georgia and across the country.
All eight of Georgia’s congressional Republicans voted against the bill, hailed as a “good deal for Georgians,” supported by a majority of the American people, and praised by former Treasury secretaries and more than 120 leading economists. The bill’s provisions to lower energy and health care costs, allow Medicare to negotiate the cost of prescription drugs, and reduce the deficit are paid for without raising taxes a single cent on any Georgian making less than $400,000 a year.
