Tell Congress: Pay our Bills Without Taking Hostages
Raising the debt ceiling without overturning the IRA should be priority one
Why It Matters
The Inflation Reduction Act was passed in 2022 and has since spurred tens of thousands of new jobs and billions in project and manufacturing investments. It is already leading to an increase in clean energy on the grid and the oncoming manufacturing boom will strengthen the American economy for decades to come. Despite planned investments in many Republican districts, including extremists like Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republicans are trying to overturn the incentives driving economic growth.
WHAT'S WORSE: Republican leadership is threatening to have the country default on its bills in order to block the clean energy transition. If Republicans don’t get their way, they may even go as far as shutting down the government.
What’s the Solution?
The solution is to pass a clean debt ceiling bill – a bill that raises ensures America follows through with its commitments without cutting investments spurred by the Inflation Reduction Act.
What Can I Do?
Contact your member of Congress, and urge them to support a clean debt ceiling increase without any of the attached gutting of the Inflation Reduction Act.
