He might as well have said, “Read my lips: No new taxes.”
Joe Biden didn’t claim he wouldn’t raise taxes when campaigning for president in 2020, but he did promise to only raise taxes on those making over $400,000 per year. Here’s the receipt from Washington Post:
The Biden-Harris regime reiterated this promise last March when then-White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki discussed tax hikes that were being proposed at the time.
“Nobody making under $400,000 a year will have their taxes increased,” Psaki said.
The economy is tanking. We recommend two America First precious metals firms. Our Gold Guy delivers personal service, no gimmicks. GoldCo offers a wide array of products. You can’t go wrong with either (or both).
If Democrats can pass their “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” and if Biden signs it into law, that promise will not just be broken. It will be obliterated. It doesn’t just reduce the limit from $400,000/year down a tax bracket or two. It takes it all the way down.
From page 1 of their proposed bill [average tax rates highlighted]:
As the chart shows, the average tax rate for Americans making over $30,000 per year will go up across the board, and that’s just for 2023. The report continues into next decade, showing increases for most brackets in years to come.
Arguably the worst part about all of this is that the bill doesn’t match the name, as is often the case with legislation coming out of Democrat-run Capitol Hill. We have a near-consensus from economists on both sides of the political aisle saying this will not reduce inflation in the near-term and most are acknowledging that it won’t affect inflation long-term, either.
It seems like Senator Kyrsten Sinema is the only person who may stop this economic abomination, and that’s assuming Chuck Schumer can’t get a RINO or two in the Senate to back his plan.
Democrats have lost any hopes that Joe Biden could win reelection, and that’s concerning. It means any promises he made in 2020 can be broken without fear of election repercussions, and that makes his regime even more dangerous than they already are.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
