Inflation Reduction Act passes Senate, will make historic investments in economy, climate, health care and middle class, no thanks to Sen. Johnson
MADISON, Wis.Today the U.S. Senate passed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, a historic bill that will make meaningful investments in our economy, climate, health care and middle class. U.S. Senator Ron Johnson voted against the measure, while Senator Tammy Baldwin voted in support.  

Meghan Roh, Opportunity Wisconsin Program Director: 
“It’s hard to overstate just how much the Inflation Reduction Act will do to bring down costs for Badger State residents. Whether it’s lowering health care and energy costs, while also lowering the deficit, or making corporations pay their fair share in taxes–this historic bill will go a long way to give Wisconsin workers and families the relief they need. We’re incredibly grateful to our elected leaders like Senator Baldwin who have heard our voices and supported the Inflation Reduction Act. 

“Unfortunately, the only voices Senator Johnson seems to listen to are those of the wealthy and well-connected. Wisconsinites are struggling to make ends meet and instead of voting for a bill to bring down costs, Senator Johnson continues to prioritize himself and those like him. As someone who loves to talk about rising costs and inflation, Senator Johnson’s ‘no’ vote on the Inflation Reduction Act shows us that his words are nothing but empty rhetoric. It’s time for Senator Johnson to stop putting politics over the people of Wisconsin.”
