The Senate was scheduled to begin their August recess yesterday, but is staying in session throughout the weekend so Democrats can push forward on the newest version of Biden’s Build Back Better agenda—a monstrous bill with over $700 billion in new taxes and over $400 billion in spending on Left-wing priorities.
After Congress fueled inflation with record spending, Democrats are now trying to message that even more spending will now decrease inflation.
They have titled their tax & spending bill, the “Inflation Reduction Act.” This is doublespeak worthy of George Orwell’s 1984.
Here are THREE simple reasons to oppose this bill—it will:
- Increase inflation and make stagflation worse
- Raise taxes during a recession on ALL Americans
- Increase the cost of energy
Sen Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) has agreed to be the final vote needed to bring the bill to closure. This is a mistake. Once this vote takes place there will be a “vote-a-rama” where an unlimited number of amendments can be proposed.
During this process Republicans will introduce a variety of amendments to improve this bad bill—and you may even see some Democrats vote in support. But watch for the hypocrisy. Senator Schumer will ensure that the final amendment is a “wrap-around” amendment to strip out good amendments that Republicans got passed.
So what you’ll see is Democrats vote for a policy so they can claim credit, and then turn around and support Manchin’s amendment to strip it out. They’ll be for it, and then against it. Total flip-flops!
As the Senate is debating and voting on this bill this weekend, you should take time today to call your Senators and oppose it.
