“Someone didn’t get the memo” : Democrats send mixed messages after Senate passes Inflation Reduction Act

By now we’ve all heard that the Senate Democrats have managed to pass the Inflation Reduction Act. As expected, various members of the Democrat party are crowing about this “victory” but it seems they may be a bit conflicted about which issues this act was supposed to fix.

Someone definitely missed the memo, but we’re not entirely sure who. Biden’s handlers seem to have finally keyed in on the reality that most American citizens are more concerned about immediate needs such as food on the table and gas in the car. The climate-change alarmist wing of the party seems to have a far different emphasis on what the act is meant to do.

So which one is it, Dems?

Uh oh, are we going to have mixed messages until polling which message is selling better with the American public?

All signs point to yes.

Senator Schatz is pretty clear on the issue:

BIG NEWS: We just passed the Inflation Reduction Act. This is a historic victory for the United States and the planet. We have met the ambition this crisis requires, and passed the biggest climate action in American history.

— Senator Brian Schatz (@SenBrianSchatz) August 7, 2022

By investing in clean energy, clean transportation, and climate-smart manufacturing, we’ll cut emissions 40 percent by the end of the decade. And we’re going to pay for it all by making billion-dollar corporations finally pay their fair share of taxes.

— Senator Brian Schatz (@SenBrianSchatz) August 7, 2022

Ah yes, those evil billion-dollar corporations will finally pay their “fair share”. Never mind that the addition of 80,000 IRS agents will most likely result in middle class Americans being subjected to greater tax scrutiny.

He did add this as an afterthought:

We’re also lowering the cost of prescription drugs for seniors and making health care more affordable – all while saving taxpayer dollars.

— Senator Brian Schatz (@SenBrianSchatz) August 7, 2022

Oh, okay good thanks for that, we were wondering when a bill named after reducing inflation would actually get around to doing something that actually benefits Americans financially.

We’re definitely not buying that last line, though.
