“Biden’s IRS Act, China Bailout Bill, Left-Wing Extremism, Gas Prices”


Excerpts from this article:



Yesterday, Senate Democrats passed yet another massive spending bill on a party-line vote of 50 to 50 with Vice President Harris casting the tie-breaking vote. There’s a lot of really bad things in the bill. But let’s start with the name. Democrats are calling this the “Inflation Reduction Act” or IRA Act. That’s a big lie.

There are a couple of fundamental economic principles. One is that you can’t tax your way out of a recession, and this bill imposes a lot of new taxes. Second, you can’t spend your way out of an inflation crisis, and this bill increases spending by hundreds of billions of dollars.

Even Democrats like Senators Bernie Sanders and Chris Coons admit that this bill won’t curb Biden’s runaway inflation.

We could more accurately call this bill “Biden’s IRS Act.” Among other things, it funds an additional 87,000 IRS agents! For perspective, this massive increase in funding will make the IRS bureaucracy larger than the Pentagon, the FBI, the Border Patrol and the State Department – combined!

Democrats insist that these additional agents will only target the “super rich.” Well, there are roughly 730 billionaires in the United States. If you do the math, that’s 119 new IRS agents per billionaire.

We all know that Biden’s new army of IRS agents isn’t going to be harassing billionaires, but middle-class Americans.

In fact, Senate Republicans proposed an amendment to ensure that these new agents audited only wealthy individuals. Unfortunately, the Republican amendment failed because every Senate Democrat voted against it.


Here’s something else that’s not getting enough attention. The bill spends at least $370 billion on the so-called “climate emergency.” This money is intended to speed up Biden’sincredible transitionfrom gasoline-powered cars to electric vehicles powered by huge batteries.

What no one is admitting is that these batteries require large amounts of “rare earth minerals.” But Communist China, with Hunter Biden’s help, has cornered the market on those metals.

So, at a time when communist China is threatening us with war, Biden and Senate Democrats just took a giant step toward making us more dependent on communist China!

Instead of making us more dependent on communist China, President Biden should go on national television and urge American businesses and investors to disconnect from that country as quickly as possible. Our national security depends on it.


Before Senate Democrats passed Biden’s pro-IRS/communist China bill, Senate Republicans forced votes on a number of critical issues that put the left’s extremism on full display. For example:

• Republicans offered an amendment to ensure that the Title 42 policy, allowing for the quick deportation of illegal aliens at the border, stays in place. Every Senate Democrat voted against it.
• Republicans offered an amendment to redirect the additional IRS funding to our public schools to help students overcome the loss of learning that occurred during the COVID lockdowns. Every Senate Democrat voted against it.
• Republicans offered an amendment to ensure that federal healthcare funding for pregnancy programs went to only biological women, since only women can get pregnant. Every Senate Democrat voted against it.
• Republicans offered amendments to boost onshore and offshore domestic energy production to create jobs and lower gas prices. Every Senate Democrat voted against them.


The Biden White House is celebrating the drop in gasoline prices from $5 a gallon to $4.00 a gallon. There’s nothing to celebrate. Gas was $2.25 when Biden took office. It’s still obscenely high!

Here’s what the White House isn’t telling you: There are two reasons gas prices have fallen. First, because Biden is emptying the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which exists in case we find ourselves in a major war or dealing with a major natural disaster, like a big hurricane.

And while Biden empties our reserve, some of our oil is being sold to communist China, which is expanding its strategic reserve because it is preparing for war with us.

The second reason gas prices have dropped is because Biden’s high prices forced people to stop using their cars, destroying demand for gas which is now at the same level it was at in July of 2020 – during the peak of the pandemic.

Of course, that’s precisely the purpose of high prices. The left wants to force you out of your combustion engine car and into electric vehicles, which, as we noted above, benefits communist China.

Again, this is what an “America Last” administration looks like.
