Democrats Pass Landmark Bill to Ease Burden of Inflation for Families, Protect Our Planet

We will continue to fight for a pathway to citizenship and a 21st century immigration system, for child care, affordable housing, and an expanded child tax credit 

This weekend, Democrats in the Senate passed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 through a reconciliation process. Community Change Co-Presidents Lorella Praeli and Dorian Warren said:

“This is another landmark piece of legislation for the Democratic-led Congress that prioritizes  the needs of working people and families over corporations. The Inflation Reduction Act will put the largest investments in climate justice to date, make life-saving medications and health care more affordable for millions, and make giant corporations pay what they owe by closing tax loopholes.

Democrats came together on policies that grassroots organizers have been pushing for decades, while Republicans fought every step of the way to block solutions. Democrats also held strong against Republicans’ attempts to poison this breakthrough legislation with myriad amendments that scapegoat immigrant communities. It is clear the GOP’s priorities are with their own pockets and their rich friends. But together, we proved we are stronger than their greed. The lesson here is that we must keep pushing to elect leaders who will fight for all of us, not just the wealthy few.

While this legislation will ease the burden of inflation and protect the future of our planet, we won’t stop fighting for a pathway to citizenship and a 21st century immigration and asylum system, for child care, affordable housing, and an expanded child tax credit that works for each and every one of us. All of our families deserve safety, care, and freedom.”
