Senate passes Inflation Reduction bill

The United States Senate passed on Sunday the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 which has a goal to fight inflation by lowering the country's deficit, reducing health care costs, and investing in cleaner energy sources.

The anti-inflation bill passed 51-50, as all the Democrats voted in favor of it, while all the Republicans voted against it. The tie-breaking vote was cast by United States Vice President Kamala Harris.

Should the bill be signed into law, it would raise $739 billion and authorize $369 billion for greener energy sources. The legislation now awaits the approval of the House, after which it will be passed on to US President Joe Biden for signing.
