Dems muck up selling costly ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ after Sunday’s vote; November fate is sealed

Listen carefully and Democrats will always tell you who they are and what agenda they’re pursuing. That lesson was on full display Sunday when the party passed the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act,” which has little to do with inflation or reduction, according to many economists.

On Sunday afternoon, Senate Democrats shoved through their $750 billion health care, tax and climate bill, as the legislation is being billed by the media, delivering the party a significant victory ahead of the midterm elections. The bill passed on a strict party-line vote, 51-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie, and it remains to be seen whether this will help Democrats avoid a shellacking in November, as is widely expected.

Controlling language is key to the success of the hard-left progressive element that controls today’s Democratic Party and this tactic was paramount in the name of the legislation that earmarks $369 billion for climate change and, according to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation, will raise taxes on the middle class.

Even worse, many experts say the Inflation Reduction Act will do little to curb rising prices, with even CNN reporting that a preliminary analysis by the Penn Wharton Budget Model, an independent research group, said the bill would “very slightly increase inflation” for the first few years.

Messaging is key and whoever the Ivy Leaguer is who controls President Biden’s Twitter account got it right: “Today, Senate Democrats passed the Inflation Reduction Act, siding with American families over special interests, voting to lower the cost of prescription drugs, health insurance, and energy and reduce the deficit while making the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share.

However, as was suggested online, Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, a self-described “climate hawk,” didn’t get the memo and called the measure what it was — a climate control bill.

“We did it. We passed the biggest climate bill that any country has ever passed. It is the reason I came to the Senate. The fight goes on, but for the first time, the American government is taking action that is equal to this moment,” he tweeted.

With the nation certainly in a recession, even though the fact-checkers will swat down anyone who dares to label the shrinking of the U.S. economy for the past two quarters in such a manner, the idea of raising taxes is inconceivable. But Democrats are also claiming the bill will reduce the national deficit by over $300 billion — in its first nine years — but this too is disputed, with the CBO putting that figure at $100 billion.

Schatz railed on about the climate bill’s impact on clean energy, almost forgetting to include the trinkets and other shiny objects his party included to fool voters.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
