Gov. Kemp Again Attacks Inflation Reduction Act, Despite Huge Benefits for Georgia 

February 20, 2024

Georgia Leads Nation in Total Investment and New Jobs Created as Result of IRA

This weekend, Governor Brian Kemp again took aim at the Inflation Reduction Act, despite reports showing that Georgia has reaped the benefits of the IRA more than any other state, both in terms of dollars invested and new jobs created. 

Passage of the Inflation Reduction Act has led directly to Georgia seeing more than $15 billion in new investments and over 11,000 good-paying jobs for middle-class families. The IRA has made the Peach State a leader in clean technology manufacturing.

“The IRA is making Georgians’ lives better, creating thousands of good-paying jobs, and charting a pathway to economic empowerment for middle-class families across the country,” said DPG Executive Director Tolulope Kevin Olasanoye. “The fact that Kemp continues to attack a generational investment in Georgia simply because it was passed by President Biden and Democrats shows how determined he is to put his politics ahead of people.”

The IRA also cuts health care costs for millions of Georgians. In addition to lowering insurance premiums across the board for both families and individuals, it caps out-of-pocket costs for insulin and other prescription drugs for Medicare patients and enables Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices.
