Lowering costs

P

The rising cost of goods and services is creating economic hardship for many Americans, and if nothing is done, it will do real damage to our post-pandemic economic recovery.

Congress has stepped up by passing the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Act, the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act, and the Inflation Reduction Act, which was recently signed into law. Now we must work to further address the high costs of healthcare, child care, and housing—and I intend to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to do just that.

Dean’s record

Dean has co-sponsored and voted for legislation to lower costs for Americans who are feeling the effects of the rising cost of goods and services.

Those bills include the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act, which would punish big oil companies engaging in predatory price hikes while raking in billions in profits; the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act, which would help lower the cost of gas and groceries by lowering costs for farmers and increasing the availability of cheaper fuels at the pump; and the Inflation Reduction Act, which was recently signed into law and will lower the cost of energy, healthcare, and prescription drugs while reducing the federal deficit by nearly $300 billion.
