LAS VEGAS, NV – U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) penned an op-ed in the Las Vegas Sun to highlight the work she’s doing to lower costs for Nevada families and her efforts to find bipartisan, commonsense solutions to create good-paying jobs and improve the lives of Nevadans. Senator Rosen discussed the progress made by legislation like the Inflation Reduction Act and CHIPS and Science Act, and called for a tax cut for the middle class to help lower families’ expenses.

Las Vegas Sun: Lower costs and tax cuts are how we can support Nevada’s middle class

By Jacky Rosen

Key Points:

  • Nevadans have faced inflation and rising costs, forcing many hardworking families to make tough decisions as high prices strain their budgets.
  • No Nevadan should face the impossible choice of which essential they can live without. That’s why I’ve been working in Congress — with both Republicans and Democrats — to find commonsense solutions to lower costs, create good-paying jobs, and improve the lives of Nevadans.
  • I’m working in a bipartisan way to lower child care costs and give families more affordable options. My bipartisan Small Business Child Care Investment Act recently passed out of committee in the Senate and is one step closer to becoming law.
  • Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, we capped the cost of insulin at $35 a month. And, we were able to ensure that Medicare can finally negotiate for lower prices. This is saving seniors’ hard-earned dollars and making sure they can afford life-saving medications.
  • Lowering housing costs for Nevada’s families starts by expanding affordable housing options across the state, and that starts by increasing the land available to develop for more housing projects. 
  • With inflation and rising interest rates, our middle class families have been getting squeezed for far too long and it’s time we give them more breathing room and peace of mind. That’s why we need to lower Nevadans expenses by cutting taxes for the middle class.
  • While we work to cut costs for Nevada families, we also need to make sure they have more opportunities for good-paying jobs. Because of legislation like the CHIPS and Science Act and the Inflation Reduction Act, we’re seeing businesses all over the country reinvest in America’s workforce.
  • Each and every day, I will continue working across the aisle and finding common sense ways to make life easier for hardworking Nevadans.
