Last week, Democrats unveiled climate and health care legislation called the “Inflation Reduction Act,” and there’s a lot of debate over the name of the proposed public policy measures. After the legislation was revealed, 230 economists sent a letter to the country’s House and Senate leaders warning that the proposed policies will actually fuel inflation. The letter stresses that there is an urgent need to curb America’s inflationary pressures, but further notes the “‘Inflation Reduction Act of 2022’ is a misleading label applied to a bill that would likely achieve the exact opposite effect.”

As I predicted the#Inflation “Reduction” Act will not eliminate the carried interest tax loophole. The one thing#Democratscare more about than taxing billionaires is getting their campaign donations. https://t.co/OMZMTALZRd
The politicians sponsoring the initiative also insist the policies will “invest in domestic energy production and manufacturing, and reduce carbon emissions by roughly 40 percent by 2030.” The act will be voted on Saturday and many people believe the legislation’s label is inaccurate and misleading. In fact, 230 economistswrote a letterto Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, and Kevin McCarthy to tell them that the bill would increase inflation.
“At a time when the economy already faces supply/demand imbalances, the residual effects of stimulus, labor shortages, and supply chain disruptions, this bill would compound rather than alleviate many of these problems,” the letter states. The economists’ letter to the House and Senate leaders adds:
In particular, its $433 billion in proposed government spending would create immediate inflation pressures by boosting demand, which the supply-side tax hikes would constrain supply by discouraging investment draining the private sector of much-need resources.
Redditors From r/Economy Subreddit Openly Mock Analysis by the Global Warming Advocacy Group That Claims Inflation Reduction Act Will Help Americans Save Money
Of course, Democrats, left-leaning media publications, and non-profit think tanks have stated that the Inflation Reduction Act would reduce inflation and allegedly lead to savings. A Yahoo Financearticlewritten by Akiko Fujita attempts to prove the bill will help Americans save money by citing anew analysispublished by the non-profit group Rewiring America.
It has never felt more 1984 than 2022.
Inflation “might still be transitory but it will take a few years to go down.”
“Recession” doesn’t mean what we said it means.
le “Inflation Reduction Act” is a $739 pork barrel that’s 50% for climate change and taxes the working class.
le 501(c)(3) Rewiring America is a global warming advocacy group managed by Arabella Advisors. The Washington, D.C.-based for-profit consulting company Arabella controls the Sixteen Thirty Fund, the New Venture Fund, the Hopewell Fund, and the Windward Fund. Arabella itself was founded by the former Clinton administration appointee Eric Kessler.
While the analysis asserts the Inflation Reduction Act could lead to $1,800 in savings for the average household, a significant majority of Redditors from the subreddit r/economydid not agreewith Rewiring America’s claims. One person quoted Rewiring America’s modern home installation requirements, et stressed: “How the f*** can a low-income household afford these?” The person who posted the article to r/economyrepliedto the individual by saying it was “typical government idiocy.” The Redditor added:
The entire green movement is a money grab for this generation.
Many other Redditorsdiscutéhow politicians have a “higher than the average” point of view when it comes to what is perceived as “low income” in the United States. “Just skimming through the article shows that the ‘$1,800’ in savings the average household would ‘get’ is actually tax breaks for low-income families to install more efficient electrical equipment. Is this a joke?” another Redditorasked.
“Unfortunately for us, it isn’t a joke,” the thread’s authorwrotein response to the joke question.
Republican Senators havemade it clearthat Joe Manchin’s and Chuck Schumer’s Inflation Reduction Act reforms deal will not get traction from the right-leaning party. “Senator Manchin, if you think you’re gonna get 60 votes to get the sweeteners that can’t be done in reconciliation, you need to think long and hard about what you’re doing,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) wrote on Friday.
