by Bernie Sanders

“(The following are the prepared remarks delivered by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on the floor of the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022 regarding the Inflation Reduction Act calling for an amendment process ahead of an expected.) ‘I want to say a few words about the so-called ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ which I believe may be coming to the floor this week. At this moment in American history we have more wealth and income inequality than at any time in the last 100 years with 3 people owning more wealth the bottom half of American society and CEOs of large corporations making 350 times more than their average workers. But, before I do, I want to put this reconciliation bill into the context of where we are as a nation politically. And that is not a good place.” (08/03/22)
