Rep. Malliotakis Called Out For Voting Against Inflation Reduction Act and Once Again Siding With Greedy Corporations Over Working People



Unrig Our Economy NYC to Hold Malliotakis Monday Protest Outside Her District Office 


New York, NY – Unrig Our Economy NYC today called out Rep. Nicole Malliotakis for voting against the Inflation Reduction Act, historic legislation to combat inflation, lower costs for working families, and reduce the deficit. The Inflation Reduction Act – which receives overwhelming strong bipartisan support from the public – is more than fully paid for by ensuring the ultra-wealthy and big corporations pay their fair share.

On Monday, August 15th, Unrig Our Economy NYC will join with local officials and voters for a “Welcome Back Protest” and press conference at 4 pm outside Congresswoman Malliotakis’s Staten Island district office. 


Clare Cecil, Campaign Director for the Unrig Our Economy NYC Campaign, said the following:


“By voting against the Inflation Reduction Act – which receives overwhelmingly strong bipartisan support from the public – Congresswoman Malliotakis once again sided with large corporations and greedy special interests that fund her campaign over hardworking New Yorkers. Today Malliotakis once again said no to lowering the cost of prescription drugs, health insurance, and energy – reducing the federal deficit and finally making big corporations pay their fair share.

“Since coming to Washington, Rep. Malliotakis has proven herself a corporate shill and MAGA extremist with no plans to lower costs for working families or crack down on greedy corporations. Hardworking New Yorkers simply can no longer afford Malliotakis’ backward agenda. Malliotakis can expect to hear our wrath over the coming weeks.”


The Inflation Reduction Act, which Rep. Malliotakis voted against, benefits New Yorkers by:


  • Lowering prescription drug costs and reducing health insurance premiums. Medicare will be empowered to negotiate lower drug prices for the first time, saving older Americans thousands of dollars a year. The legislation will also cap out-of-pocket costs that seniors pay for medications at $2,000 annually and requires drug makers to pay rebates if their medication prices increase faster than inflation. It also extends the beefed-up subsidies for low-and middle-income Americans buying insurance under the Affordable Care Act.


  • Lowering energy costs. The legislation’s historic investments in clean energy production will save the average household $1,800 per year on energy bills, Making it easier and cheaper for people to use more clean energy in their daily lives with things like solar panels, electric vehicles, and improvements to make homes more energy efficient.

  • Easing the burden of inflation. In addition to cutting household energy and health care costs for millions of Americans in the near term, it also reduces the budget deficit and fights inflation. The Act makes wealthy corporations pay their fair share in taxes and boosts IRS funding to crack down on wealthy tax cheats without increasing taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 each year.




Unrig Our Economy NYC is a local campaign to fix the rules of our economy to make it work for working people. When the middle class does well, all of us do well — which is why we’re fighting on behalf of working Americans and holding greedy and the politicians who enable them accountable.
