The House has just passed the $750 billion Inflation Reduction Act, which means it's headed to President Biden's desk for a final signature before becoming law. As one congressman put it, we're essentially pouring gas onto the fire.
Just like Build Back Better or the Infrastructure bill, public perception is key in convincing people they support the legislation.
Politicians are masterminds at marketing. They know their voters will fall for the deceptive name, because who wouldn't want to reduce inflation, right? They also know how to attack. So in order to easily bypass all the chaos in the bill, they mention all the things that Republicans are against, like cheaper insulin and more affordable health care options.
But for anyone who digs just a little bit beneath the surface into the actual text of the most recent bill, which will soon be law, it's clear the bill has nothing to do will solving the economic crisis sparked by progressive policies.
Here are some of the subsections that will direct millions of dollars to specific political agendas, which you can find in the bill by using command+F on your computer:
- COVERAGE OF ADULT VACCINES RECOMMENDED BY THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON IMMUNIZATION PRACTICES
- INCREASE IN ENERGY CREDIT FOR SOLAR AND WIND FACILITIES PLACED IN SERVICE IN CONNECTION WITH LOW-INCOME COMMUNITIES.
- CLEAN ENERGY AND EFFICIENCY INCENTIVES FOR INDIVIDUALS
- ENVIRONMENTAL AND CLIMATE JUSTICE BLOCK GRANTS.
- FEMA BUILDING MATERIALS PROGRAM.
- NATIVE HAWAIIAN CLIMATE RESILIENCE
A massive amount of the legislation is money directed at green initiatives relating to climate change fears. This includes reducing carbon emissions, encouraging offshore wind options, and providing energy credits, which is a pure expense on taxpayers.
When legislation is 730 pages long, there's absolutely no way legislators are aware of everything they're voting on. No bill should be longer than what a member of Congress is capable of reading and contemplating – surely not hundreds or thousands of pages.
The reckless spending in the Inflation Reduction Act falls back on us, and those passing the legislation are unaffected.
They know there will never be accountability for their actions, so in order for We the People to end this once and for all, we must add a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.
Our Founding Fathers gave us Article V, so we could call a Convention of States to be a check on a possibly one day tyrannical and out of control federal government.
That day has come, and we now must utilize Article V to restore America before it's too late. Sign the Convention of States petition below.
