Release: Instead of Delivering Economic Relief for New Mexico, Yvette Herrell Sides with Big Pharma

August 12, 2022

Las Cruces, NM – Today, Yvette Herrell once again abandoned New Mexico families for special interests by voting against the Inflation Reduction Act. Instead of fighting for desperately needed economic relief for working families, Yvette Herrell chose to spread misinformation about this legislation and oppose cost-cutting reforms.

Reminder: Last week, Yvette Herrell received a letter from a pharmaceutical lobbyist group instructing her to oppose this historic legislation. Today, Herrell followed their orders.

Make no mistake – Yvette Herrell voted against a major win for New Mexico by opposing the Inflation Reduction Act. which will:

  • Lower skyrocketing prescription drug costs
  • Lower health care premiums
  • Reduce the deficit and tackle inflation
  • Invest in water infrastructure and preservation
  • Creates manufacturing jobs
  • Make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share while ensuring taxes do not go up for the middle class

“Lowering costs for New Mexicans is critical. The Inflation Reduction Act will lower costs for health care, prescription drugs, and energy costs, while making sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share,” said Democratic nominee for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District Gabe Vasquez. “Yvette Herrell’s vote against the Inflation Reduction Act is just another in a long list of votes placing special interests first and New Mexicans last.”
