President Donald Trump urged House Democrats to vote against the bill that would add 87,000 IRS agents and increase American taxes during a recession.
According to Fox News, the House of Representatives plans to vote on the “Inflation Reduction Act” on Friday.
In a Friday post on Truth Social, Trump wrote, “Strongly VOTE AGAINST THE BIGGEST GREEN NEW FAKE DEAL BILL IN HISTORY, which is about to be rammed down the throats of Americans.”
“Those Dems voting against this massive tax hike will be legends – actually be able to win again,” Trump added.
The Senate recently passed the bill with a tie-breaking vote by Kamala Harris, despite Republican lawmakers asserting that 87,000 new IRS agents present a danger to the American people. Additionally, the bill is expected to increase taxes on hardworking American families.
According to CBO Director Phillip Swagel, the financial implications of the Democrats’ bill will not be disclosed for weeks, Fox News reported. In a letter to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., he wrote, “Given the scope of the amendments to title I, Committee on Finance, CBO expects that it will be a few weeks before we can fully analyze and estimate those budgetary effects, at which point we will provide a complete cost estimate for the legislation.”
Despite several issues with the legislation, Democrats plan on pushing through the “Inflation Reduction Act” before lawmakers can examine the bill’s full contents.
In response to the Democrats’ plan to hire 87,000 new IRS agents, conservative actor Kevin Sorbo echoed Trump’s previous warnings to Americans, asking them, “How can you still trust the government?”
Trump said the bill “should be called the Inflation Expansion Act” and warned that the new 87,000 IRS agents would be hired “to cajole and harass you and your family.”
The 45th president encouraged citizens, “Call your Democrat Congressmen & women – tell them NOT to vote for this killer. Republicans are 100% against!”
