More than 230 economists say the Inflation Reduction Act will worsen inflation.

Akon Fenty August 5, 2022 - 10:37 PM

Inflation Reduction Act will not reduce inflation.

They took out all the tax rate changes, which means this is nothing but a spending bill. Make no doubt about it, Sinema will be rewarded by Wall Street BIG TIME $$$$$$ somewhere down the road. Probably right after shes loses the next election. PATHETIC!

The Inflation Reduction Act will expand the IRS by allocating $80 billion in new funding and resources.

their main focus will be small business owners and the middle class.

This should work out ok.

These politicians only know how to spend more during a time of hyperinflation and recession. This is only going to make the economy worst.

mark Mierzejewski August 5, 2022 - 10:39 PM

2022 will be great, Republicans have nothing to offer the America people… It’s all basically coming down to “ Do you support common sense and pragmatism or support a guy who paints himself Orange .. Trump will always have his base but never the support of the American people
A profound difference ..

It seems the billions of trillions of dollars is going to be spent how much are the salaries of these corporations are going to make millions and millions of dollars the corporations are going to make millions and billions of dollars but there's no mention of how much the working classes are going to make are they going to make $1 what is the salary of these corporations compared of making a million dollar to 10 million dollar salary my corporate America who's going to make profits and hundreds of millions and billions of dollars but the middle class is not going to get $1 not even $0.10 or the homeless is not going to receive any money or the working class who definitely is not going to see a dollar but corporate America is going to receive billions and billions of dollars at corporate America salaries like Network television news people will receive millions and million dollar salaries and that is going to be paid for by the middle class the working class great job brilliant vote Democrat

You can make mad leaders by using psychological warfare to. Some people are specialist at hitting the sensitive feelings in the brain.

Remember when Peter Brandon said anyone making 400,000 or less will not see a penny raised in their taxes?16.7 billion that will raise taxes for those making 200,000 or less furthering the economic destruction that they want.
FJB and the whole Biden crime family

Tax increases, IRS hounding you to death, an even rise in inflation……..layoffs, interest rates increase….economy collapsing.

Mr. Know-it-all. August 5, 2022 - 10:44 PM

I'll bet there's not one moron that works for CNN or any of it's idiot watchers nor is there one DemocRAT that can tell me how this bill will reduce inflation.

"Inflation Reduction Act" offers a lesson in deceptive naming.

sacrificial suicide August 5, 2022 - 10:44 PM

To ad insult to injury let's add a tax hike!if your still voting Democrat at this point you have Stockholm syndrome

"Inflation Reduction Act" = "Non Fat yogurt" – that Kramer from Seinfeld invested in.

Great sales weeks later everyone got fat. Kramer tried to sway a lab technician testing it – sounds familiar.

PS -We are not in a recession lol

If you want to learn more then CNN will ever teach you because they are so biased they're not news anymore they are propaganda, the last thing they want to do is just report the facts without little smirks. So here's you something to think about if you ever want to watch CNN:Flintstones. Meet the Flintstones.
They're the modern stone age family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They're a page right out of history.

Let's ride with the family down the street.
Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet.

When you're with the Flintstones
Have a yabba dabba doo time.
A dabba doo time.
We'll have a gay old time

So let me get this straight, NO green energy money UNLESS also FOSSIL FUELS are paid FIRST, nor is there ANYTHING to FORCE the fossil fuel companies to invest in green energy, nor to not stop them from exporting energy. And one of the things to help pay for it, making billionaires pay for earned income LIKE EVERYBOBDY ELSE is dropped. So billionaires and fossil fuel companies come out big. And this is just glossed over.

I'll bet if we raise taxes on Americans China will reduce its carbon emissions.

Everyone knows democrats were the confederates right ? Trying to be good guys. Abe Lincoln was first republican president

Just Rico August 5, 2022 - 10:49 PM

The Democratic Party has become the only party with reasonable people willing to compromise to improve this country. The other party is full of grievance, victimhood, violence, culture wars, taking away rights and freedoms, and opposing anything that improves the lives of everyday Americans. Thank you, Democrats.

San Diego Traffic Lights & Trains August 5, 2022 - 10:49 PM

Republicans hypocrisy will be exposed yet again. They whine about inflation, yet they vote against bringing down inflation.

Wee Bit Boyo August 5, 2022 - 10:49 PM

Blimey!!! Spending more money during high inflation is suicidal!!! It's like having an open border during a pandemic!!! Oh wait!!!!!!

John Trent August 5, 2022 - 10:49 PM

Republicans win again. The 10k SALT cap will remain. Fuck California and New York.

SuperMutant2099 August 5, 2022 - 10:49 PM

Only thing it offers is that democrats need to learn economics. Because nothing in this bill will reduce inflation

WATCHMEN August 5, 2022 - 10:49 PM

"ACTING" Reducting inflation…

Jason Boyce August 5, 2022 - 10:49 PM

Republicans have gone so far into extremism that Democrats have to be ‘the left’ AND ‘the right’
