Andy Ogles Condemns ‘Falsely Named Inflation Reduction Act’

TN-5 Republican nominee Andy Ogles on Thursday criticized the Inflation Reduction Act.

According to the Thursday statement obtained by The Tennessee Star, Ogles expressed “strong opposition to the so-called ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ rammed through by Democrats in the Senate over the weekend without a single Republican Vote.”

“Democrat leaders, including former President Barack Obama, have long said it is idiocy to raise taxes during a recession,” Ogles noted, “and they are right. But they did it anyway!”

“The falsely named ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will raise taxes on working Americans, waste money on more green new deal boondoggles that reduce American energy independence and raise gas prices, and deploy 87,000 new IRS agents to harass American citizens while not putting a single additional border agent to work securing our wide-open southern border,” Ogles said in the statement. “If Truth in Advertising laws applied to Congress, then the fines and penalties that would be imposed would bankrupt the Democratic Party.”

Ogles’ statement notes that the $740 billion in new federal spending is expected to come before the House on Friday, with Democrats expected to pass it via a party-line vote.

“Every member of Congress should vote no on this economy-busting hit job on taxpayers. Even Sen. Bernie Sanders, one of most progressive legislators in the country, recognizes that this bill does nothing to fight inflation,” the statement said.

Referencing the 755-page bill, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) argued on the U.S. Senate floor that “according to the [Congressional Budget Office] and other economic organizations that have studied this bill, it will have a minimal impact on inflation.”

“We will pay a heavy price for this ridiculous boondoggle for years to come,” Ogles added, “but taxpayers have a chance to alter course and return America to greatness and prosperity in November, starting right here in the 5th District.”

      Nancy, exactly when did Bill Hagerty sit on your hat? Obviously, he must have done something to cause you to frequently embarrass yourself by calling him a “RINO” despite the fact he has a Heritage score of 88% and a Club For Growth score of 84%. Having sat on your hat may mean Hagerty is careless, negligent, or easily distracted but Nancy, his voting record shows he simply isn’t a “RINO.”

    Congratulations Andy. Tennesseans did a good job. Now go to DC and give em he!!. Do not back down. Hit em hard. No working with the Democrats. We need to work against them on every issue. Impeach Biden, Impeach the fraud Harris (who is NOT a natural born citizen) Impeach Garland and keep on impeaching until they are all gone. THEN start defunding EVERY unconstitutional agency in DC.
