After 16 Hours, Senate Dems Pass Legislation To Spend More To Lower Inflation

After 16 Hours, Senate Dems Pass Legislation To Spend More To Lower Inflation

The Inflation Reduction Act was approved by the U.S. Senate after 16 hours of voting, putting Democrats in a favorable position to enact many important party agenda items into law.

The law addresses a number of key priorities for the Biden administration, including cutting healthcare costs, combating climate change, and reducing the deficit. It has been long stalled by expenditure issues. On Saturday night, senators started voting on numerous bill modifications, and discussions continued into Sunday afternoon before the bill was ultimately passed through the budget reconciliation procedure.

Voting took place along party lines, but Vice President Kamala Harris used her power to break the tie, allowing the measure to pass the Senate 51–50. The bill will now proceed to the House of Representatives where it is anticipated to pass before being delivered to the White House to be signed into law by President Joe Biden.

Democrats applauded the bill’s approval, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) then thanked those who had seen it through to this point.
