The Democrats are not the party of the average American and their latest bill reflects just how out of touch they are. The Inflation Reduction Act pours billions of dollars into green energy solutions while doing very little to tackle actual inflation. A new poll shows that many Americans don’t actually care about their environmental initiatives. And that means Dems STILL Aren’t listening.
The Inflation Reduction Act was a huge flop. Pouring billions of dollars into green energy initiatives may have made the Democrats feel good about themselves, but it did nothing to tackle actual inflation. And when this new poll came out, it showed that many Americans didn’t actually care about their environmental initiatives.
In fact, they cared more about getting their hands on some cold hard cash.
The Democrats latest bill, called the Inflation Reduction Act, spends billions of dollars on green energy solutions while doing very little to tackle actual inflation. A new poll shows that many Americans don’t actually care about their environmental initiatives. This means that the Democrats still aren’t listening to what people want.
The Democrats have long been the party of environmental initiatives, but their latest bill reflects just how out-of touch they are with average Americans. The Inflation Reduction Act pours billions into green energy solutions while doing very little to tackle actual inflation; according to a recent poll conducted by Bloomberg News many people don’t actually care about these projects or initiatives as much anyways – which means Dems STILL Aren’t listening!
Democrats are wasting more of you tax dollars on things Americans don’t care about
As Democrats celebrate passing a massive green energy bill, Americans are apparently less worried about climate change than they were just a few years ago. According to the Washington Free Beacon, a new poll shows that concern about climate change has declined significantly since 2019.
The poll by the Associated Press reveals only 35 percent of adults are “extremely or very concerned” about climate change. The same was said by 44 percent of respondents in 2019. AP News has more,
Nearly half of respondents, 45 percent, said individuals are responsible for fighting climate change. There were 32 percent of respondents who said they were not concerned about climate change, and 33 percent who said they were only “moderately concerned.”
Democrat celebrate the results as President Biden prepares to sign the Inflation Reduction Act. The bill does not lower inflation, which is at a 40-year high, but it does provide the largest ever investment in green energy and climate change mitigation. The Inflation Reduction Act has been referred to as a climate and health bill because reports show it will not curb inflation. However, that framing may not help Democrats sell their proposals to voters.
The Inflation Reduction Act earlier this month passed both chambers of Congress, with every Democrat voting in favor. Biden is expected to sign the bill soon
Democrats running in competitive races this November pointed to the bill’s provisions as evidence that the party is addressing voters’ concerns. However, the AP poll found that Americans are much more concerned about rising consumer costs and economic issues than environmental issues. Americans are less likely to cite the environment as an urgent issue than they were three years ago, according to the AP.
A total of $386 billion is earmarked for green energy and climate change initiatives under the Inflation Reduction Act. Of that money, $161 billion goes to tax credits for clean electricity, while $36 billion goes to tax credits for electric cars.
Besides climate change-related spending, the Inflation Reduction Act allocates $80 billion to double the IRS’s workforce. IRS could employ more bureaucrats than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined if enough bureaucrats join the agency.
Although the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” has been hailed by Democrats as a major victory, many experts are saying that its effects on inflation will be negligible.
Fox News Reports, inflation is unlikely to be reduced in the near future under the Inflation Reduction Act, according to a new MoneyWatch report from CBS News.
According to economists and data scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, the legislation’s likely impact on inflation is “statistically indistinguishable from zero.”
Similarly, the Congressional Budget Office recently concluded that the $739 billion bill will have a “negligible” impact on inflation over the next two years, according to the report.
Furthermore, 36% of Americans believe the Inflation Reduction Act will increase inflation, according to a YouGov poll. Despite Democrats touting this bill as a major victory, they can’t even explain how it will benefit Americans.

The Inflation Reduction Act, otherwise known as the IRA, is the latest bill put forward by the Democrats. On the surface, it sounds like a good idea. Who doesn’t want to reduce inflation? But when you take a closer look, it becomes clear that this bill does very little to actually tackle inflation. In fact, it pours billions of dollars into green energy solutions while doing very little to address the root causes of inflation. This just goes to show how out of touch the Democrats are with the average American. This new poll shows that many Americans don’t actually care about their environmental initiatives. And that means Dems STILL Aren’t listening. It’s time for them to wake up and start representing the interests of the American people instead of special interests. Otherwise, they’re going to continue to lose elections.
