The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is a budget reconciliation bill sponsored by Senators Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin authorizing $370 billion in spending on energy and climate change, $300 billion in deficit reduction, 3 years of Affordable Care Act subsidies, prescription drug reform and tax reform. The bill was the result of negotiations on the proposed Build Back Better Act, which had been reduced from its initial proposal.
The bill would raise revenue from:
- Aligning with the 15% global minimum corporate tax rate – $313 billion
- Prescription drug price reform, including Medicare negotiation of drug prices – $288 billion
- Increased tax enforcement – $124 billion
- Eliminating the carried interest loophole – $14 billion
It would spend this revenue on:
- Continuing for three more years the expansion of Affordable Care Act subsidies originally expanded under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 – $64 billion
- “Energy Security and Climate Change” – $369 billion
- Deficit reduction – $306 billion
- Solar investment tax credit to be extended 10 years at 30% 
As part of the investment into energy, the bill would extend the solar investment tax credit for 10 years. After the publication of the bill’s initial draft text, it was announced that Democrats would also work towards adding provisions to cap insulin prices to the bill.
Several provisions in the initial deal between Schumer and Manchin were changed after negotiations with Sinema: a provision narrowing the carried interest loophole was dropped, a 1% excise tax on stock buybacks was added, manufacturing exceptions were added to the corporate minimum tax, and funding for drought relief in Arizona was added.
Senators Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer say they have reached a deal on the Inflation Reduction Act, a bill that includes measures to fight inflation, lower drug costs and address climate change. CBS News congressional correspondent Nikole Killion breaks down the legislation and other measures that Congress is working to pass, in the video published on July 27, 2022, “Senate Democrats reach deal on Inflation Reduction Act“, below:
