On its face, the Inflation Reduction Act does absolutely nothing to solve our problems — and Democrats know it.
The White House must once again rely on the collective stupidity of Americans if they wish to obfuscate the actual facts about the bill and about inflation in general. The idea that we will emerge from a nightmarish period of record-high inflation by spending MORE MONEY on the federal level (on any level!) is so incredibly asinine that it’s shocking the White House is moving forward with these talking points.
It truly is the gaslighting of the century as the White House communications team desperately tries to find the right messaging (propaganda) that will convince Americans of the supposed benefits of the Inflation Reduction Act.
It all began when the White House claimed inflation was merely “transitory.” The propaganda progressed into the “Putin Price Hike” to explain record-high inflation in the U.S. Then, as a recession set in (defined by two consecutive quarters of negative growth), the White House sought to dodge any heat by actually redefining ‘recession.’
Now the Biden regime is tasked with lying to Americans once again, this time about the newly-passed Inflation Reduction Act, which John Karl from ABC called “Orwellian”.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made the Sunday rounds trying to convince Americans that the Inflation Reduction Act will actually help our current financial nightmare by printing and spending more money during a recession.
Meanwhile, an ABC News/Ipsos poll from early August found only 37% of Americans approve of Joe Biden’s handling of the economy, which Jean-Pierre struggled to explain away.
Jean-Pierre sat down with Karl in the hopes he’d go easy on her — but that didn’t seem to be the case. Karl directly asked Jean-Pierre why Americans were so overwhelmingly unhappy with America’s fiscal direction under Biden.
He called out the Biden Regime for attempting to spread lies about the Inflation Reduction Act, which they claim immediately provides assistance to struggling American families (it doesn’t.)
“Isn’t it almost Orwellian? How can you call it the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ when nonpartisan experts say its not gonna lower inflation —” Karl asked before getting cut off by Jean-Pierre.
On Inflation Reduction Act, Jean-Pierre tells @JonKarl: “It's going to lower costs for Americans. Prescription drugs, energy costs…13 million Americans on the ACA who are now going to continue to see their premiums go down. That is important.” https://t.co/s4vGyjQKTX pic.twitter.com/zuJREOUiXe

Her response (or lack thereof) is quite telling.
Jean-Pierre wasn’t the only member of Biden’s regime to come out in support of the Inflation Reduction Act.
Top clown within the administration Secretary Granholm of the Department of Energy also gave interviews over the weekend where she appeared so out of touch it’s actually quite incredible.
Sec. Granholm appeared on CNN to make false claims about the bill ostensibly written to lower inflation. She said that Americans will immediately see lower household energy costs…before explaining the requirements. Families must totally reoutfit their homes with energy-efficient windows, appliances, and solar panels before they can receive the 30% tax credit granted in the bill.

Administration officials have already used this tactic earlier in the year when they urged Americans to shut up about gas prices and just buy an electric vehicle.
