Rubio opponent Val Demings goes there, claims 50 top military leaders back so-called inflation bill

Florida Congresswoman Val Demings’ attempt to justify Joe Biden’s latest spending spree is backfiring bigtime.

According to the Democrat, who represents an Orlando-area district, “50 top generals, admirals, and military leaders say that the Inflation Reduction Act will protect our national security and military readiness from climate-related threats,” she wrote on Twitter.

Demings, who was one of the Pelosi-appointed House managers in Trump Impeachment 1.0, is seeking a political promotion by running against incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio in November, assuming she wins the August 23 primary. Deming is giving up her House seat to challenge Rubio.

The Democrat establishment has presumably promised her a cushy gig after Rubio, who is receiving endorsements from the law enforcement community, likely wins.

Demings, an ex-Orlando police chief, reportedly was among those Biden considered as his 2020 running mate.

On Twitter, Rubio critiqued the so-called Inflation Reduction Act that Senate Democrats intend to pass on Sunday by a straight party-line vote.

“The Democrat plan is basically a smaller ‘Build Back Better’ that still spends billions on the Green New Deal, will make inflation worse & adds thousands of new IRS agents to harass people…While working Americans are struggling with high prices, worried about the border and terrorized by crime the Senate is spending all night voting on a democrat climate change bill…Out-of-touch Senate Democrats think electric cars, solar panels & hiring 87000 new IRS agents is more important than dealing with high prices, crime and an open border.”

As a federal elected official, Demings should be more concerned about military and economic threat posed to the U.S. and the rest of the world by CCP-controlled China, a regime which has no inclination to limit is fossil fuel use.

In crafting the above-referenced tweet, Rep. Demings may have overlooked the appeal-to-authority fallacy, as many Twitter users implied.
