REMINDER: What All 8 Georgia Republicans Voted Against on Friday

August 15, 2022

Last Friday, Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the Inflation Reduction Act – legislation hailed as a “good deal for Georgians,” supported by a majority of the American people, and praised by former Treasury secretaries as a bold step to “address our climate crisis, lower costs for families, and fight inflation.” While every Georgia Democrat in the U.S. House voted to send this historic bill to President Biden’s desk, all eight of Georgia’s ultra-MAGA Republicans in the U.S. House voted against it.

Georgia Republicans voted against:

Lowering costs for Georgians, including: 

  • Lowering health care costs, saving about 13 million Americans $800 per year and many Georgians thousands on average
  • Lowering prescription drug costs, including a $35-a-month cap on out-of-pocket costs for insulin users covered by Medicare; capping out-of-pocket expenses on prescription drugs for seniors at $2,000 per year; and finally letting Medicare negotiate prices. 
  • Lowering energy costs – saving families $500 per year on energy bills.

Tackling the climate crisis while creating good-paying jobs, including:

Reducing the national deficit, including:

  • Making the tax code fairer by making the uber-rich and large corporations pay their fair share in taxes, and without anyone making less than $400,000 per year pay a penny more.
  • Reducing deficits by $305 billion through 2031.
