Extremist MAGA Republicans “Hitting Self-Destruct” On Latest Proposal to Repeal Inflation Reduction Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Climate Power Executive Director Lori Lodes released the following statement in response to the news that House Republicans are considering adding a repeal of the Inflation Reduction Act to their sham bill to address the debt ceiling. 

“MAGA extremists are hitting the self-destruct button with their latest threat to repeal the law that is creating a jobs boom across the country. They are ready to increase the deficit, undermine the re-election chances for their vulnerable members and potentially eliminate any chance at a deal to avoid the economic devastation caused by defaulting on our debt. Even Marjorie Taylor Greene has praised projects the Inflation Reduction Act made possible. The path Republicans in Congress are on is dangerous and destructive to our nation and planet. If Speaker McCarthy cannot get his caucus to govern, he should step down and let somebody else give this a try—for the good of the country.”
