The Inflation Reduction Act is a ruse with an Orwellian name.
One day before federal agents raided Donald Trump’s home, Vice President Kamala Harris acting as tiebreaker for a deadlocked vote, helped the senate pass the $700 billion Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Among the bill’s planned expenditures are billions earmarked for battling climate change, as well as increasing the staff of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). On Friday, August 12, the House signed on too. Despite the promises and propaganda being touted by Democrats and other supporters of the IRA, this sweeping piece of spending – massive in scale and scope – is simply the latest chess move in a sinister game where the radical transformation of the United States is taking precedence over solving a looming economic crisis.
The U.S. economy is at a dangerous tipping point. Forty-year high inflation is causing the average American household immense strain and small businesses to fold. Interest rate hikes, while necessary to counter out-of-control fiscal spending, are propelling us toward an even deeper recession. Rather than trying to tame inflation, those responsible for championing the IRA are using the same fiscally irresponsible approach that has contributed to our current economic woes. Deceptive legislation aimed at inflation and climate change will combat neither. Politicians are cheating us again and we are letting them. If you haven’t been paying attention, our freedoms cramp at the government’s style and those freedoms are under attack. At every turn, those in power circumvent or simply ignore the freedoms granted by the Constitution of the United States to impose what they perceive to be their superior intellect and virtue on the rest of us. This bill is another example of a shady backroom deal designed by people beholden to a donor class who think they know what you need and corporations who never had your best interests at heart.
To some degree, our public policy has always shaped our personal finances, but the malfeasance at work today is vastly different than anything we have previously encountered. The things that safeguard our way of life – our prosperity, our ability to provide an equitable standard of living for ourselves and our families – are being derailed by people who crave power and want to control the rest of us.
When does it stop? How do we fix the problems when the people who caused the problems are still making decisions for the rest of us? The answer is not as complicated as it may seem. Stop electing officials who don’t believe in the American way! Trump’s America First policy is a winning policy and putting our interests first doesn’t mean we can’t still be an integral part of the global community. America has always lead the way, but now we are lagging.
The New Left wants you to believe we live in a world that doesn’t require borders, police, guns, or a strong military. They want you to believe in a system that rewards everyone, especially those who don’t try to be productive. They want you to believe that violent criminals need mental health programs instead of prison or incarceration. They want you to believe that gender is a construct but at the same time expect you to shut up and “follow the science” as it relates to everything else. They want you to believe their policies work while asking you to ignore the facts and the statistics that say otherwise. They want you to own nothing – and still be happy!
This is not AMERICA FIRST. This is America Last.
