YOUR LETTERS: Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 a ‘huge deal’ for workers

The Senate reaching agreement on a bill to help drive down costs for workers and families is huge for workers, huge for seniors and huge for our country, particularly our kids.

It drives down costs for American families and is paid for by big corporations and the wealthy.

It stares down Big Pharma by reining in prescription drug prices, particularly for those on Medicare; reduces healthcare premiums; addresses climate and energy costs; and creates more fairness in the tax code – all while reducing the deficit and cutting inflation.

Congratulations to all those who persisted with the detailed and intense negotiations that got us to this point. The bill, which has passed the Senate, was approved by the House on Friday.
