Wisconsin Democrats Celebrate Historic Inflation Reduction Act, Blast Republicans Who Voted Against Lowering Costs for Families

MADISON, Wis. – President Biden and Democrats in Congress took on special interests and won by delivering the Inflation Reduction Act, which will create thousands of good-paying jobs and lower costs for working Wisconsinites.

Across the state, Wisconsin Democrats are celebrating how the IRA delivers on President Biden’s promise to build an economy that finally works for working families:

Wisconsin State Journal: U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin: Inflation Reduction Act cuts drug costs

“After years of fighting the power and influence of Big Pharma over Congress, Democrats have taken this Washington special interest on while Congressional Republicans stood on the sidelines with the big corporations and drug companies who have profited off rising costs and inflation. Wisconsin families need lower costs and I voted for the Inflation Reduction Act to deliver results by cutting out-of-pocket costs for the kind woman from Beldenville with lymphocytic colitis and the nearly 46 million seniors across the country. This is real, life-changing relief for working families and it is about time we got the job done for them.”

WisPolitics: Ben Wikler: Inflation reduction act is a boon for Wisconsin

“All across the country, working families are breathing a little easier because of the work President Biden and Democrats across the country are doing to bring down costs – even as Republicans like Ron Johnson try to stand in the way…The IRA is a big win for working families, and Americans know it.”
