Biden’s so-called “Inflation Reduction Act”

Biden’s so-called “Inflation Reduction Act”

Biden’s so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” includes $79.6 billion over the next 10 years to hire another 87,000 IRS agents.

They claim this will generate $203.7 Billion in incremental tax revenues over the next ten years for a projected net positive impact of $124 Billion. This is more than 100% of the current Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimate of $102 Billion in deficit reduction over the next ten years (a mere $11 Billion per year).


“This is not about inflation reduction, this is all about Democrats spending on things they want to spend money on. I’m not going to support it. I don’t think any Republicans are going to support it. Why is that? Well, it’s another taxing and spending bill,” said Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah in response to the bill.- ABC News 


Quote from CBO after concessions were made in the legislation to get Senator Krysten Sinema to agree to support it:

“On August 5, 2022, CBO issued a revision to the table published on August 3, 2022, to include estimates of spending for sections 13601 and 13802. As a result, the updated estimate of the deficit reduction was lowered by $11.0 billion over the 2022-2031 period. CBO’s estimate of H.R. 5376, the Build Back Better Act, as passed by the House of Representatives on November 19, 2021, also did not include an estimate of the spending that would result from enacting a similar provision, section 136701. As a result, the estimated deficit for that piece of legislation also would be different, but CBO has not finished its estimate of that spending.” – CBO  

So putting aside the unresolved issue of how much this new spending will add to the US annual rate of inflation, one of the other big questions is this: 

What if the estimates of how much (illegal) tax evasion by those making over $400,000 in adjusted gross income is actually wildly overblown and only a small portion of the $203.7 billion of the projected increase in incremental tax revenues (Roughly $20 billion per year) materializes? Will Biden cut those 87,000 new agents if it turns out they aren’t really paying for themselves in the form of increased tax revenues? Has any Democrat President in history ever reduced the number of Federal employees (who, as a group, overwhelmingly vote Democrat)? 

Oh, and of course, unlike corporations which are required to include as an annual business expense (and to pay into a trust fund annually) any earned & accrued pension benefits for any employee who has a defined benefit pension plan (like all government employees have), the Federal Government is not required to recognize that pension liability expense when calculating the cost of hiring & paying new employees. So will those 87,000 new IRS agents ultimately cost the Government more than the projected $79.6 Billion? The answer is not only a yes but “Yes, WAY MORE” when you take into account their earned (but unrecognized) pension benefits.

A Good Guy and What Was on Him

A Good Guy and What Was on Him

Good Guy with a Gun Story You Will Not See on the News:

 Provided by Jersey Joe: 

I recorded the 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM National news broadcasts for ABC, CBS, and NBC last night and this morning. I could not find where any of them ran this story about a good guy with a gun. A staff member engaged an armed shooter who had entered a children’s summer sports camp venue outside of Dallas, where 250 kids were inside. 

Quote from linked story:

The armed suspect entered through the complex’s main lobby doors and was confronted by a staff member who exchanged gunfire with him, Duncanville Police Department Assistant Chief Matt Stogner said at an afternoon news conference.” 

While the first staffer kept the shooter engaged, a second staffer called the police, and others moved the children to a safer area of the venue. The police arrived and then shot and killed the gunman.

Now while this is an NBC story, they chose not to run it either last night or this morning, and it does not appear on their on-line “latest stories” page this morning.

You haven’t been paying attention if you don’t know who Jersey Joe is. As a faithful Rush To Reason listener, caller, and friend of the show, Joe constantly sends information our way. Which we greatly appreciate.

One of his latest submissions highlights Dr. Fauci and uncovers more of what a sinister he is. It makes him look so bad that Facebook doesn’t want it on their site. When I tried to post it, Facebook gave me notice of how it went against their community standards.

Yes, Facebook, the platform that claims it’s not a publisher but will regulate content that goes against its “community standards.” Community standards that are in place for your protection. This isn’t protection. It’s censorship. Facebook can’t let the truth stand because it objects to the new reality they’re trying to create. Take control of the media, control people’s thoughts, and interfere with elections; you will get a new reality. But as Luke 12:2 states, “Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.” (ESV)

Let it be known then how Fauci has brought on death and destruction to millions if not billions of people throughout the world. The story Jersey Joe sent in shows how, once again, we have been lied to and deceived.

The Email from Jersey Joe:

Quote from linked story:

“Dr. Anthony Fauci flagged an article in an email to the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), highlighting portions that said the CDC’s guidance to impose 6-foot social distancing in schools was not based on science.

Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, sent a STAT News op-ed to Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC’s director, on Feb. 20, 2021.

“You probably have already seen this. But just in case, you should be aware of it,” Fauci wrote.

Fauci highlighted several paragraphs from the article, penned by Dr. Vinay Prasad and political science professor Vladimir Kogan, including a line that says the social distancing guidance was “not supported by science.”

The authors wrote that the distancing recommendation seemed to be based on “decades-old research,” pointing to an analysis by experts published by the British Medical Journal.

In the old days, didn’t we have colleges that prepared you for the real world and not shield you from it? Well, Not any longer. 

Now we’re using tax dollars to shield people from the real world that we were supposed to be training them for.

So if you or someone you know is affected by a free speech event on the campus of Colorado State University, here are some resources paid for by the taxpayers of Colorado to help you deal with reality or that special someone who might not agree with you.  

The conversation with John, Andy, and Jersey Joe segued into Biden’s proclamation that he’s going to pick a black female for the next Supreme Court.  “And it’s sad. Imagine how that’s going to taint that person if he goes ahead with it. Oh, yes. Well, she got the job because she was black and female, as opposed to we’re going to nominate the most qualified person.” – Andy Peth.

Then Jersey Joe sent in tweet with some questions/answers attached to John by Congresswoman Cori Bush on who should be the next Supreme Court justice. John continued to expose the left. 

Take a listen and find out what the hardcore leftists are doing to the young adults at CSU and how they continue to divide people throughout our nation. 

Cori Bush Has It Wrong

Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO)

“If you side with Cori Bush you are against the Constitution. …  You’re just like her.  You’re a communist too.” – John Rush

John’s full comments here.

Jersey Joe: Supreme Court justices are charged with only one responsibility and that single responsibility is to determine if a law, policy or practice is Constitutional or not, and NOT if said law, policy or practice is “Fair” or “Just”.   In case you haven’t yet figured out the answer to the question “What is wrong with her tweet?”, the answer is NONE OF THOSE THINGS should ever be taken into account when determining if a law is Constitutional or not! It is not unheard of for the Court to rule that a law is Constitutional but to note in their opinion that they consider it to be a bad law that should be addressed and changed by the responsible legislative body. An example of this principle is illustrated by the response attributed to Supreme Court Judge Oliver Wendell Holmes who, in response to a pleading by a young attorney who kept insisting that he had come before the court seeking justice for his client, Holmes replied: “This is a court of law young man, not a court of justice!”
