The Inflation Reduction Act continues to face Republican opposition, with Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham comparing the likelihood of it actually reducing inflation to the idea that the border is secure and thinking the Taliban did not know now-deceased Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was in Kabul.
Appearing on Fox & Friends on Friday, Graham predicted taxes introduced in the inflation bill will increase costs for consumers, and pointed to a recent CBO (Congressional Budget Office) report on the bill as proof it will have very little effect, if at all.
Well, the CBO says next year inflation will go up or down 0.1%. So that’s not much of a reduction. This bill has tax increases on imported oil. The taxes in the bill will be passed on to consumers at the $75,000 or below level. The subsidies for Obamacare go to people who make $304,000 as a family of four. It is a bunch of B.S. that it will reduce inflation. It’s about as accurate as saying the border’s secure and the Taliban didn’t know Zawahri was in Kabul. This is a fraud. It’s a lie. It’s going to make every problem worse.
Republican lawmakers have had harsh words for the Inflation Reduction Act. During a Fox News appearance this week, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) referred to the bill as a “special kind of stupid” that will push more Americans into poverty. As he put it, the inflation bill will drive more Americans to “live in a tent behind Whataburger.”
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has said he disagrees with concerns that the bill could raise taxes and costs.
“We never raised any taxes. We’re just saying close the loopholes and collect the taxes that are owed to the Treasury and the United States people,” Manchin told CNN about the bill.

Pittsburgh School District Unanimously Passes Resolution Against Bill Barring Critical Race Theory
by Nicholas Ballasy
The Pittsburgh School District unanimously passed a resolution against legislation that would bar teaching Critical Race Theory or any other concepts that regard one race as superior to another.
The resolution, which passed on Tuesday, states that the board will defy “harmful legislation,” including HB 1532, formally referred to as the Teaching Racial and Universal Equality Act. The bill was proposed by Republican State Rep. Russ Diamond.
The school board’s resolution also covers House bill 2813 as well as Senate bills 1278 and 1277. According to KDKA, CBS News Pittsburgh, Senate bill 1277 “would require schools to allow parents to opt-out of curriculum containing sexually explicit content.” Senate bill 1278 and House bill 2813 would “prohibit classroom instruction on gender identity and sexual orientation up to fifth grade.”
“All four bills are inconsistent with the needs of our students and threaten the ability of the School District of Pittsburgh to build a culture of belonging that embraces differences, reflects our local community and allows all students and educators to be their authentic selves,” read the resolution. “The District formally opposes and rejects any legislation that suppresses classroom discussion, promotes fear, intolerance, and hate, and devalues staff, students and families of color, and LGBTQ+ students, staff, and families.”
If passed and signed into law, the legislation would bar teaching “racist and sexist concepts” in Pennsylvania school districts. The intent of the bill is to curtail “the divisive nature of concepts more commonly known as Critical Race Theory.”
