The so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” is another Washington DC lie. It won’t do anything to reduce inflation. In fact, it will do the exact opposite. Instead, they should have named it the “Liberty Reduction Act,” because that’s what 87,000 new IRS agents funded by this spending bill will do.
Yes, the tax man cometh. And he won’t just be coming for billionaires.
Peter Schiff appeared on the Newsmax Saturday Report along with former Rep. Peter King (R-NY) to talk about President Joe Biden’s unwarranted inflation victory lap.
The CPI for July came in slightly cooler than June’s sizzling 9.1%. But even at 8.5%, CPI remains near 40-year highs. But Biden focused on the unchanged month-on-month CPI to declare victory over inflation and claimed he’s building “an economy that works for everyone.”
Last weekend, the Senate gave final approval to the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act.” Despite the catchy title, it is nothing but a tax-and-spend bill. The pundit class insists this will not only cool inflation but will also lower the budget deficit. This is a pipe dream. As Ron Paul explains, the bill will not only increase inflation, it will also increase government spending and taxes.
