Pelosi: The Inflation Act Will Provide ‘$60 Billion for Diversity, as We Meet the Challenge of the Climate Crisis’
PELOSI: "In any event, this is a triumph that takes place in the context of just this couple days, yesterday the President — two days ago, the President signing the IRA, not to be confused with anything going on in Ireland, but the Inflation Reduction Act. In that bill, he has $60 billion for diversity as we meet the challenge of the climate crisis directly connected, as you mentioned, to what we’re doing here. So, again, it’s about inclusion, it’s about investing in our children, our future education in research. It’s about doing so in a way that is respectful of great diversity of views, and we could not have done it without the intellectual resources, some of whom you see here, without the private sector enthusiasm for it, because this needs to have — to be a public-private partnership and it couldn’t happen without really the tremendous leadership of our president, Joe Biden."
