Press Release

Indivisible on House Passage of the Inflation Reduction Act

WASHINGTON -

Today, Leah Greenberg, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of Indivisible, issued the following statement after the House passed the Inflation Reduction Act, sending it to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law:

“Lower energy bills. Lower prescription drug costs. Lower healthcare premiums. Lower carbon emissions. That's what this bill is about, and that's why it's critical that Democrats finally came together to pass this historic legislation. Democrats are making necessities more affordable, passing the largest climate bill in history, and taking steps to make the ultra wealthy and big corporations pay their fair share in taxes.

“Elections have consequences, and so does activism. Make no mistake, without a Democratic trifecta, none of these vital provisions would even be on the table. But without decades of activism leading up to this moment, and sustained grassroots pressure, the President's initial proposal would not have been as bold, and one of the many deaths this bill died would have been final. Of course there's more work to be done, but President Biden, Leader Schumer, and progressive champions in Congress deserve enormous credit for keeping hope alive and landing this deal. In the face of rising right-wing authoritarianism, including GOP efforts to roll back our basic rights, the significance of Democrats enacting bold legislation extends beyond the necessary provisions of the bill. When President Biden signs this bill, it will be a reminder that our democracy can provide meaningful benefits to our families and communities, and that's worth fighting for.”
