How Long Will the U.S. Continue to Disrespect Its Caregivers?

On Tuesday President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act, which contains parts of his Build Back Better agenda, including major climate investments and authorization for Medicare to negotiate lower prescription drug prices. The law will reduce the cost of health care, slash carbon emissions to roughly 50 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, invest in clean energy vehicles and raise taxes on corporations, among other things.

Make no mistake, President Biden and the Democrats in Congress have achieved a transformative investment in our future.
