Democrat Rep Lets Slip What The Inflation Reduction Act Was Really All About


Democratic Rep. Elaine Luria of Virginia said that the Inflation Reduction Act passed in August was more an environmental bill than one addressing inflation.

“The Inflation Reduction Act — that might be the name, but it’s a huge environmental bill that includes a lot of things, such as the tax credits necessary to make these kind of developments,” Luria said while at an Aug. 24 event with the BlueGreen Alliance.



“It was great being with local labor, environmental, and community leaders today in Chesapeake to highlight the investments being made in the offshore wind industry and workforce in Coastal Virginia,” Luria posted on Twitter.

President Joe Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law on Aug. 16. The legislation is loaded with green energy provisions, including a $7,500 tax credit for electric vehicles, and expanded the Environmental Protection Agency’s control over the energy industry in response to a Supreme Court ruling.

The legislation also increased the budget for the Internal Revenue Service by $80 billion, allowing the tax agency to hire another 87,000 agents.

Luria did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

  1. The Inflation Act will not even fight inflation. Totally deceptive and lies. It is all theater smoke and mirrors to push their agendas. Not good.

  2. Chuck Schumer said the laughably called “Inflation Reduction Act” was the greatest “Green” environmenetal legislation we have ever passed so anyone with half a brain knows that it’s just another scam and will do absolutely nothing to reduce inflation, in fact, it will dramatically increase inflation through 730 billion more government money printing. There’s even 40 billion for “environmental justice” which is obviously nothing but a slush fund for pet projects or donor paybacks. What’s even more unbelievable is that we can watch Europe collapsing after decades of their own failed “Green New Deal” policies making them totally dependent on Russian gas and oil and the Democrats want to go down the same road here.

    And, oh yeah, there is that 80 billion to double the size of the IRS and make them bigger than the FBI and the DOJ combined. Remember that Biden said that no one making under $400,000 a year will pay another dime in taxes. Does anyone really believe that they would need to hire another 87,000 IRS agents to audit the 1.8% of Americans that make over $400,000? In fact, 52% of all IRS audits are on taxpayers making under $75,000 a year! It’s just another lie and everyone will be paying higher taxes.

    Again, just look to Europe who spent decades installing solar and building windmills and pushing electric cars and now they have to get 40 to 50% of their energy from Russia. Electricity costs has risen 1000% in the last year in many places and businesses are having to close because they can’t afford their power bills. Then look here at California that mandates no gas vehicles allowed by 2030 but currently sends out advisories to not charge your electric car some nights because of power shortages! Or Colorado that will automatically lock you electronic thermostat so that you don’t use too much air conditioning in a heat wave.

    Wake up America. If we don’t stop this nonsense soon our country will soon collapse from inflation, our devalued currency, and idiotic government over regulation.
