Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) slammed the Inflation Reduction Act Friday, claiming, "It is a bunch of B.S. that it will reduce inflation."

Graham told Fox and Friends, "The CBO says next year, inflation will go up or down 0.1%. So, that's not much of a reduction."


He argued the legislation would raise costs on the middle class instead.

"This bill has tax increases on imported oil," he said. "The taxes in the bill will be passed on to consumers at the $75,000 or below level."

President Joe Biden promised on the campaign trail not to raise taxes on the middle class, only on those who make more than $400,000.

"It's about as accurate as saying the border's secure and the Taliban didn't know Zawahri was in Kabul," Graham said. "This is a fraud. It's a lie. It's going to make every problem worse."

"Manchin-Schumer will NOT lower inflation," he later tweeted.

As more Senate Democrats offered their support for the legislation, Biden called it a "critical step toward reducing inflation and the cost of living for America’s families.”

"It will make our tax system more fair by making corporations pay a minimum tax. It will not raise taxes on those making less than $400,000, and it will reduce the deficit. It also makes the largest investment in history in combating climate change and increasing energy security, creating jobs here in the US and saving people money on their energy costs," Biden said of the act in a White House statement.

Ron Johnson Praises Man Who Admitted to Voter Fraud Scheme: He Did the Public a Service

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) argued against prosecuting a man who committed an act of voter fraud in order to prove the existence of voter fraud.

Johnson was recently asked about the story of Harry Wait, the leader of a Racine County-based group known as H.O.T. (honest, open, and transparent) Government. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the group promoted “false claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election,” and Wait recently made news over a stunt where he put in a fraudulent request for several absentee ballots.

Wisconsin’s Department of Justice is investigating Wait after he admitted to requesting absentee ballots in the names of Racine Mayor Cory Mason, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, and others. Wait told the authorities about his usage of false identities, claiming that he had permission to put in the requests for ballots sent to his home, and that he did so to spotlight vulnerabilities in the online system.

“I would be willing to take that hit for the country,” said Wait. “You can’t have ballots going all over the place, unsecured. I committed a crime when I did it, but do you think criminals care when they do it?”

Asked about this at a recent event, Johnson described Wait as a “white hat hacker” who should not be penalized for committing a felony.

“He was trying to show a vulnerability. There was no malign intent to what he did,” Johnson said. “I certainly wouldn’t prosecute whatever he did. I appreciate what he did. I think he did the public a service showing a vulnerability that obviously [the Wisconsin Elections Commission] isn’t concerned about.”

Johnson recently came under scrutiny after the January 6 Committee revealed that his office attempted to help former President Donald Trump use fake electors to overturn his 2020 election defeat.
