The Democrat Party’s answer to record inflation — MORE spending!
Senator Joe Manchin surprised Washington DC elites and the mainstream chattering class when he announced his support for Joe Biden’s green new deal funded by nearly $800 billion in new tax hikes.
The Green New Deal will crush the coal and energy sector in his home state of West Virginia. But it will make the windmill manufacturers in China rich.
Manchin struck a deal with Schumer to pass the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” through reconciliation (no Republicans needed to pass the bill).
Democrat Joe Manchin on Sunday absurdly claimed Biden’s ‘inflation reduction act’ lowers energy costs and doesn’t raise taxes.
Manchin is lying.
The new spending bill does the complete opposite.
CBS’s “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson played a clip of Manchin from 2010 saying taxes should never be increased during a time of recession.
Manchin defended Biden’s tax-and-spend bill and said it’s “all about” fighting inflation.
“This is fighting inflation…this [bill] is going to take care of that because this is aggressively producing more energy to get more supply to get the prices down,” said Manchin.
He continued, “We didn’t raise taxes…I’m not raising any taxes!”
John Dickerson surprisingly pushed back on Manchin and challenged him on his inflation claims.
“I’m not raising any taxes.”
