In Key Congressional Districts, Unrig Our Economy and Concerned Constituents Invite their Representatives to Discuss Why They Voted Against the Inflation Reduction Act

As part of the Constituents Over Corporations Week of Action, Unrig Our Economy and local organizers will hold events across the country, following passage of the Inflation Reduction Act in which every Republican voted against lowering prescription drug prices, making corporations pay their fair share in taxes, and reining in corporate greed.

With recent polling showing that large majorities of Americans support the Inflation Reduction Act, local community leaders have invited their Republican representatives to these town halls to hear why they voted against this landmark legislation, and how they intend to reduce costs and stand up to corporations.

“Every Republican in Congress voted against the Inflation Reduction Act, and their constituents want answers. These town halls will allow voters to have an open conversation to understand why they picked corporations over the working people that put them in office,” said Sarah Baron, campaign director for Unrig Our Economy. “These members of Congress voted for big corporations rather than the constituents they were voted to represent, and they need to be held accountable.”
