Hey, John Kerry, What’s In A Name?

If you were thinking that the monstrosity of a spending bill the Biden administration passed was inappropriately named, you were right.

As we all know, the Inflation Reduction Act has nothing to do with reducing inflation. In fact most acknowledge that it can only increase it. Well guess what – John Kerry agrees with you.

The Biden administration’s so-called Climate Czar was in Pittsburgh last week attending something called the Global Energy Action Forum. While there, Kerry made some telling statements.

He admitted that the bill “is a completely misnamed piece of legislation.” Adding, that he’s “not sure how much it has to do with inflation.” Oh, he also stated that the bill is “amazing” in advancing the current administrations climate change agenda. According to Kerry, “The most important parts of the Inflation Reduction Act are very simple, production and investment tax credits.”

“That I Think, is going to do more than almost anything else in the bill.”

Translation: this delusional administration thinks that by offering tax incentives for things like electric cars, solar panels, etc., things the average American can’t afford, it will help your plight. In reality the opposite will occur.  Indeed, the Congressional Budget Office concurs. Its director Phillip Swagel wrote in a letter to Senator Lindsey Graham that “enacting the bill would reduce the incentives of some people to work, mainly because of the enhanced health insurance subsides pushing down output and pushing up inflation.”

This bill is a nightmare for Americans. It overflows with unfounded socialistic rhetoric, and it drips with hypocrisy. Liberals see themselves as elite and they’re trying to separate themselves from the rest of America through ridiculous legislation about non-existent issues. Thus increasing regulatory rule over average Americans. Plainly put, “Do as we say, we know what is good for you.”

Several years ago Kerry flew on his private jet to Iceland in order to receive an award for his environmental work. A reporter there had the gall to ask him if it was hypocritical of him to fly over 3000 miles in a private jet for an award. Kerry’s response: “It’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle. I have to fly to meet with people and get things done.”

Fine for him, in fact justified, but not for you.
