The House today voted 220-207 to pass the Inflation Reduction Act (H.R. 5376), sending it to President Biden for his signature. Passed by the Senate Sunday, the roughly $700 billion social spending package would extend for three years the American Rescue Plan Act’s expanded subsidies for coverage purchased through the Health Insurance Marketplaces; allow Medicare to negotiate prices for insulin and certain other drugs; implement tax changes and spending subsidies to address climate change; and reduce the deficit, among other provisions.
