Managing Editor Zaria Howell has a handy breakdown on the Biden administration's Inflation Reduction Ad up on our website today:
"On August 16, the Biden Administration passed the largest, and most comprehensive, largely climate-oriented bill into law.
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), mandates that roughly $370 billion dollars be put towards subsidizing clean energy and reducing healthcare costs — two things that impact each and every American.
Medicare beneficiaries with diabetes can look forward to their monthly insulin supply being capped at $35. Households who can afford to invest in clean energy technology, like solar panels or an electric vehicle, can expect to benefit from things like tax credits and direct consumer rebates.
On paper, some might call such a legislative package monumental, in its effort to incentivize consumers to reduce their GHG emissions."
