Montana Republican Senator Steve Daines joins Fox Across America With Jimmy Failla to explain why the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is going raise taxes on millions of people in an effort to promote the Democratic Party’s clean energy initiatives.
“As we’ve unpacked this bill, they’re going to add 80,000 IRS agents, doubling the number of IRS agents. Nothing like doubling the IRS to make us all feel better about things. They’ve got $40 billion for environmental justice. They’ve got one billion dollars for tree equity. And then, when you didn’t think it could get any worse, they are giving these significant tax credits to wealthy people to buy electric vehicles. The thing I’m going to try to have an amendment that says they should include a Honda generator to put in the back of that Tesla and a five gallon gas can so that you can fill the generator in case your Tesla runs out of electricity somewhere between Dallas and Austin. It is absolutely crazy what’s going on at the moment.”
Senator Daines also talks about how the Biden administration’s unwillingness to produce more oil in the U.S. is directly responsible for the unusually high prices Americans have been paying at the gas pump this year. To hear what else he had to say, listen to the podcast!
