President Joe Biden’s landmark Inflation Reduction Act makes historic investments in America’s middle class by creating new, good-paying jobs; accelerating the transition to a clean energy economy, including through electric vehicle (EV) tax credits and rebates; and lowering the cost of utilities, health care coverage, and prescription drugs. Moreover, the law takes on entrenched special interests like Big Oil and Big Pharma and makes multibillion dollar corporations finally pay their fair share in taxes.
