Imagine the following scenario: Putin assures that he is not going to declare war on Ukraine, but in the meantime passes legislation to draft hundreds of thousands of new soldiers, would you believe him? The answer is obvious. No.
In the case of Biden and the Democrats, for months they denied that they intended to raise taxes on all Americans. In fact, they continue to deny it, despite abundant information denying such a claim. Additionally, they passed legislation to hire 87,000 new IRS employees. Yes, 87,000, a whole army of public servants who will receive a big salary and all the government benefits (paid for by the taxpayers), whose only mission is precisely to extract more money from the latter in order to subsist and also leave more money to the government’s coffers.
It is funny that Biden and the Democrats keep trying to call themselves the party of the working class, while they declare war on low-income Americans with tons of taxes and a runaway inflation that has impoverished them. They cheat them, mock them to their faces, tell them they won’t take any more money from them, and hire an army of auditors to go to war.
In this game of narratives, the most repugnant thing is that they baptize the law with the name “Inflation Reduction Act”, when the law package will not only fail to substantially reduce inflation, according to several economic analysts, but it will also cause more spending and pressure on Americans, who today can hardly afford a luxury, a dinner out with the family, because their money has been devalued. To make matters worse, they will now have to pay more money to the government or be investigated and probably put in prison for failing to comply with the new Biden canons.
Remember that while you are working to try to feed your family and pay the government, what the Democrats call “fair share”, billions of dollars are being sent to Ukraine and other countries with little oversight, and instead of reviewing those accounts, Biden has decided to keep taking more money out of your pocket to fund his poor political agenda.
