‘It’s insanity’: Rep. Jim Banks identifies a whopping 52 radical items in ‘Inflation Reduction Act’

The Orwellian-named “Inflation Reduction Act” has now been shoved down the throats of Americans after President Joe Biden signed off on one of the most transformative pieces of legislation in the nation’s history, a Trojan horse chock full of radical policies and pork that would likely have never passed under normal conditions.

In the shocking turn of events after Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda was thought to be dead and buried, so-called “moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin’s opposition crumbled with him selling out his West Virginia constituents along with the rest of the country after he was cajoled by billionaire climate change zealot Bill Gates, setting up a party-line vote using the reconciliation process to render Republicans irrelevant.

How radical is the bill?

Rep. Jim Banks, the chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC) identified 52 radical policies contained in the bill which, despite its name, does little or nothing to actually reduce inflation which continues to clock in at the highest levels in four decades despite the White House and media spin.

The Indiana Republican joined his former House colleague Jason Chaffetz on Friday’s special edition of “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News where he broke it down.

After noting that the bill contains $27 billion for a greenhouse gas reduction fund to pay for green energy deployment in environmental justice communities, $87 million for a campaign to educate communities on how to reduce greenhouse emissions and $20 billion to the USDA for “Green New Deal priorities,” Chaffetz turned the floor over to Banks.

Asked for some examples of the pork stuffed into the Democrat bill, the congressman responded, “Yeah Jason, when you were in Congress they had the ‘Affordable Care Act’ which we all know led to less access to more expensive health care, now we have the ‘Inflation Reduction Act.’ If they called it what it really is, the Green New Deal, this really is the radical climate change agenda of the Democrat Party, they’d be getting laughed out of the room.”

“So, what do they do?” Banks asked, “They gave it a fake name, the ‘Inflation Reduction Act.’ There are tons of subsidies for wealthy people who buy solar panels. Of course, you’ve all have heard about the 87,000 new IRS agents that are being funded in this bill which, by the way, are being tasked with going out and finding over $100 billion in revenue from working-class Americans, so 87,000 IRS agents.”

“Notre Dame’s football stadium couldn’t hold all of those new IRS agents, so the more you dig into this bill, the more you realize how much the Democrat Party is lying to you and I believe the American people have caught onto this,” he said, predicting a voter backlash in November.

Among the 52 separate items included in the memo from the RSC are that it “idiotically” boosts taxes during a recession, builds “Biden’s IRS army,” expands Obamacare, contains payoffs to union bosses, provides rich people with tax breaks to buy green appliances, subsidizes electric vehicles for the wealthy and raises energy costs.

Additionally, there is $3 billion for the Department of Transportation to “undertake projects to address its claim that infrastructure is racist,” $3 billion for a fleet of electric postal trucks, and a backdoor Climate Corps of the type championed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez which will allocate $87 billion “to launch a propaganda campaign to ‘educate’ communities on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.”

One of the more ridiculous aspects of the bill is that “Cow Farts are BACK!” in that it “would require the Secretary of Agriculture to prioritize new funding for certain farm grants that ‘utilize diet and feed management to reduce enteric methane emissions from ruminant.’ Translation = taxpayer money to feed cows food that that won’t make them fart,” according to the RSC memo.

“It’s insanity,” Banks said. “Again, it’s the policies of the Democrat Party, no matter what they call it, it’s their policies, their massive spending agenda, their radical climate change, Green New Deal agenda that’s caused inflation. The American people have caught onto it, they don’t need to be educated, they get it, and I really do believe election day is going to prove it.”
