Albuquerque- Today, President Joe Biden delivered remarks at the Arcosa Wind Tower facility outside of Belen, highlighting the Inflation Reduction Act and his administration’s historic work to expand clean energy and manufacturing.
“Yvette Herrell voted against the Inflation Reduction Act, making it clear she’ll follow the national GOP before standing up for New Mexicans every time, while Democrats and President Biden are mobilizing historic investment in clean energy and manufacturing,” said Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair Jessica Velasquez. “As we saw firsthand today, President Biden’s economic and climate agenda is taking unprecedented action to combat record extreme heat caused by the climate crisis and increase clean energy and manufacturing while creating steady, good-paying jobs for New Mexicans.”
During her time in Congress, Yvette Herrell consistently voted against New Mexico’s economy and wellbeing. In addition to voting against the Inflation Reduction Act, Yvette Herrell also voted against:
- Capping the cost of insulin to $35/month for Medicare recipients
- Allowing Medicare the power to negotiate drug costs
- Creating clean energy jobs and lowering energy costs
