BY THE NUMBERS: The Inflation Reduction Act

[snip]

TAXES

Making the Tax Code Fairer

  • $0: how much some of largest, profitable corporations pay in federal income tax.
  • 55: the number of America’s largest, wealthiest corporations that got away without paying a cent in federal income taxes in 2020.
  • $160 billon: how much the top 1 percent of earners is estimated to evade each year in taxes.
  • 15%: the minimum tax on corporate profits the Inflation Reduction Act imposes on the largest, most profitable corporations.
  • $124 billion: savings over 10 years the Inflation Reduction Act will generate from collecting taxes already owed by wealthy people and large corporations, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
  • And no family making less than $400,000 will see their taxes go up a penny.

The claim “In 2020, 55 of the biggest corporations in America paid zero in federal income taxes” comes from a study released in 2021 by the Institute on Taxation and Economic PolicyPolitiFact rated President Biden’s remark back in April of 2021, Mostly True.

Campaign Tweet

From Wednesday…

The video clip is 48 seconds long.

It shows the passage of ACA on 12/24/2009; it then goes on to show news clips over the years on enrollment numbers through the ACA marketplace.

At the 21 second mark it shows Twice Impeached 45 calling on Congress “to repeal and replace Obamacare” from 02/28/2017 Joint address to Congress.

At the 29 second mark it switches back to news clips talking about the record number of people enrolling in health care plans via the ACA marketplace.

At the 39 second mark President Biden says “20 million people that’s really a big deal”.

His full statement:

Today, we hit a major milestone in lowering costs and ensuring all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care: a record-breaking 20 million Americans have enrolled in health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act marketplaces. With six days left to still get covered, 8 million more Americans have signed up for ACA coverage than when I took office.
 
The Affordable Care Act is more popular than ever, and Affordable Care Act coverage is more affordable than ever. Thanks to efforts by my Administration, millions of Americans are saving hundreds or thousands of dollars each year on health insurance premiums, and most people who shop for coverage at HealthCare.gov can find a plan for $10 a month or less.
 
We must build upon this progress and make these lower health care premiums permanent. But extreme Republicans have blocked these efforts at every turn. Their plan would raise costs for millions of people, especially older Americans and small business owners who rely on the marketplace for their coverage, by repealing the improvements I signed into law. In fact, they want to repeal the Affordable Care Act, just as my predecessor tried and failed to do, which would strip these 20 million people of their coverage, end Medicaid coverage for millions more, and return to the days when insurance companies had free reign to deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions and charge women more than men. 
 
That would be a catastrophe for families who would face skyrocketing health care costs. I won’t let it happen on my watch. As too many Americans know: access to quality, affordable health care can mean the difference between life and death, and hope and fear. That’s why I will continue fighting to bring down health care and prescription drug costs. I encourage Americans to visit HealthCare.gov before January 16th to sign up for health coverage this year.
