Members of the House Freedom Caucus are calling on all GOP members to do everything possible to stop the Inflation Reduction Act from passing —also known as the “Climate Package” and the “Tax and Climate” bill.
According to The Daily Caller, “The Inflation Reduction Act passed the Senate in a party-line vote on Sunday after more than 15 hours of debate and a lengthy amendment process. The bill allocates $740 billion toward green energy subsidies and tax credits, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) funding, and Affordable Care Act subsidies, among other programs. Despite its name, the legislation is expected to have a minimal impact on inflation.”
The House is scheduled to vote on the bill on Friday.
“The House Freedom Caucus Board has urged Republican Leadership to deny Speaker Pelosi a lawful quorum in the House of Representatives to pass this monstrosity. Unfortunately, Leadership has refused, thereby precluding a renewed, strengthened lawsuit against the unconstitutional practice of proxy voting and making it likely this bill becomes law unchallenged in the courts. If enacted, HFC Members commit to repealing the toxic and radical provisions of the so-called ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ in the next Republican Majority, and urge Republican Leadership to do likewise,” the group of more than 30 House Republicans said in a statement.
“The so-called ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ is a disastrous bill that will further exacerbate the already devastating burden of inflation, which surged 8.5% in July, with yet more out-of-control spending – on top of a foolhardy tax increase even as America falls into a recession,” the group added.
