Those crazy bastards really did it. They really passed an inflation reduction spending bill. I feel like Seth and the folks at Babylon Bee are now speaking reality into existence like this week’s episode of Westworld.
According to NPR on Sunday, “Senate Democrats, after weeks of negotiations to revive the core of their election-year agenda, passed a spending bill which would attempt to tackle climate change, the high cost of prescription drugs and lower the deficit by roughly $300 billion.”
I have heard the Congress claim that they are going to pass a bill to lower the deficit more times than dollars they’ve printed – never has it happened. Quite the opposite, actually.
But they say it. They negotiate their – not ours, their – agenda, and sneak in all their excess pet projects and payoffs and laundering plans, and hand us the check.
Then they tell us to cut corners in our budgets and just give them just a little more of our money to pour into the black hole of their spending. You can go to the dollar store, which is actually now the $1.25 store. Global warming demands we all make sacrifices. Well, not all of us.
Congress is fighting inflation by taxing the supply chain to make goods more expensive, printing nearly a trillion dollars and spending the majority of it on climate change, and building an army of IRS agents to make sure you don’t keep a penny more (of your earned money) than the federal government says you can.
There is no voice of reason inside those chambers, under that dome. There is no temperance. No restraint.
Just greed, gluttony, and pride in their schemes and spoils.
They want you to check out and stop paying attention. Don’t give them what they want. Use your voice and tell them exactly how you feel.
Here is today’s letter to Congress. You can customize and send to your legislators!
TO THOSE WHO CLAIM TO REPRESENT US IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT:
An inflation reduction spending package. You really did it. You’re messaging this as, “inflation-fighting health care, climate change and deficit reduction strategies.”
“The single biggest investment in climate change in U.S. History.”
As Americans struggle to buy food, gas and other necessities, you’re printing money for climate change.
Americans don’t need billions in green investments.
We don’t need the central bank to make our purchases more expensive, and we don’t need congress increasing taxes on the supply chain.
We don’t need to expand federal agencies and send tax collectors to people’s homes.
We need you to stop.
Stop printing money.
Stop coming up with ideas.
Stop trying to help. You are absolutely terrible at this.
The American people are well equipped to fix our economy. We did it when the 45th President moved the government out of the way.
Now you want another at-bat and, through a stolen election, you got that chance. You’ve put it back they way it was before President Trump woke up the American people to the problems with their government and institutions.
This Congress hasn’t even been in power for two years, and you’ve proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that you’re incompetent, ingorant, and incapable of anything other than shameless self promotion and advancement.
We haven’t met, but I’m willing to bet that you campaigned on fiscal responsibility and putting an end to corruption. It’s a safe bet, because you all do that. When campaigning, you all make strongly-worded speeches with high ideals of how you’re so much different than the swamp scum you seek to replace. You’re different, right?
Wrong. You failed. You’re campaigning all the time and have forgotten why we sent you.
You can consider your job performance, for the past two years, a complete and total failure to achieve the objectives for which you were hired. Just so there is no ambiguity, here is what you were hired to do:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”
Take responsibility for your actions, and change course. We are watching and tracking the metrics. We are not some media organization that you can buy off to change the definition of recession. We the People are watching, and we can’t be bought.
You’re exposed. And we will be tracking how your Inflation Reduction Act impacts inflation. We will hold you accountable for the outcomes.
If you continue this destructive course, we must resolve that you’re doing it intentionally. You’re punishing the American people, while stealing our wealth and enriching your friends. Inflation didn’t just happen – it is the direct result of your reckless policies.
The Constitution is under attack. The enemy is inside the gates. Where are you?
