WASHINGTON, DC – PA’s two U.S. senators reacted to passage of President Biden’s so-called Inflation Reduction Act. Republican Sen. Pat Toomey said, “Last year, Democrats jammed through trillions of dollars in reckless spending that fueled the worst inflation in 40 years. Now, Democrats insist on pouring fuel on the fire with another partisan tax-and-spending spree that will only further exacerbate a recession we’re already likely in. With inflation skyrocketing, gas prices at near-record highs, and our economy likely in a recession, the last thing Americans need are more corporate welfare, higher taxes, and more government spending.” Democrat Sen. Bob Casey reacted, As families across PA and the nation are being squeezed by inflation, Democrats are tackling this problem head on. It’s a fiscally responsible bill that will bring down our national debt by ensuring profitable corporations start paying their fair share, just as American families have been doing all along.” The measure now goes to the U.S. House.
