President Biden gave another bizarre speech on Monday, acting as if he had no idea what was in the Inflation Reduction Act that was passed on Sunday, claiming it funds healthcare “and God knows what else.”

While speaking to the beleaguered residents of Lost Creek, Kentucky, Biden misstated the size of last year’s $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure law.
“We’ve never done this before, but because of a number of things we got done on a bipartisan basis — like a billion, 200 million-dollar infrastructure project — like what we’re doing today, we passed yesterday, helping take care of everything from healthcare to God knows what else,” Biden unfathomably stated.
“What we’re going to do is — we’re going to see, for example, they got to put a new water line in the community,” the president babbled on without a prepared script.
“There’s no reason why they can’t at the same time be digging a line that puts in a whole new modern line for Internet connections. Why? Why can’t we do that? So it’s going to be different. We’re going to come back better than before,” he socialistically vowed.
The president spoke for about four minutes in front of a crowd backdropped by a tossed mobile home. It’s his first trip since he contracted COVID.

Then, Biden went even weirder, suggesting that it might be possible to actually control the weather. He proceeded to make a confusing joke to his audience that including Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear and Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) about it being time to “run laps.”
“We’re all Americans. Everybody has an obligation to help. We have the capacity to do this. It’s not like it’s beyond our control. The weather may be out beyond our control for now. But it’s not beyond our control,” Biden strangely said, causing everyone to get the itch to scratch their collective heads.

Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) pointed out, “‘God knows what else’ means whatever the far left wanted in the Bill and all the extra pork [Democratic Sens. Joe] Manchin [of West Virginia] and [Kyrsten] Sinema [of Arizona] needed to get to Yes.”
“The ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will ‘take care of everything like health care and God knows what else’ is one heck of a Kinsley gaffe by @POTUS,” Pluribus editor Jeryl Bier tweeted.

While Biden’s apparent cognitive decline went into play concerning the Inflation Reduction Act, others were quite aware of what it entails. Including nearly $400 billion for climate change, tax credits of up to $7,000 to buy electric vehicles, and roughly $64 billion to extend Obamacare healthcare subsidies.
The green-tinged pork includes $62 billion to support manufacturers of solar panels, wind turbines, batteries, and electric cars. It also encompasses another $30 billion for state and electric-utility projects.
But wait, there’s more. Another $27 billion is earmarked for a “clean energy technology accelerator” to reduce emissions, $20 billion is destined for “climate-smart agriculture practices,” and $10 billion will support improving home energy efficiency for lower-income residences.
Another $9 billion will go toward green-energy procurement, including $3 billion to buy electric vehicles for the US Postal Service.
Also included is a 15 percent corporate minimum tax, 87,000 new IRS agents, and allowances for Medicare to directly negotiate drug prices.
The IRS is coming for you.
The DOJ is coming for you.
The FBI is coming for you.
No one is safe from political punishment in Joe Biden’s America.

While the bill’s title claims it will reduce inflation, many claim it will do exactly the opposite.
“The Orwellian named ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will do no such thing, as a number of prominent experts and economic policy groups have indicated,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) asserted. “The Penn Wharton Budget Model, the Tax Foundation, and the Congressional Budget Office all found the bill won’t lower inflation and may make it worse. The IRS would more than double in size, unleashing 87,000 new enforcement agents on American families… [and the] nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation says that 78% to 90% of the revenue raised from misreported income would likely come from those making under $200,000.”
Democrats are as detached from economic reality as they are from the truth.
The Orwellian named “Inflation Reduction Act” will do no such thing. It will worsen inflation, supercharge the IRS to go after American families and likely drive the cost of energy up rather than down. pic.twitter.com/QlMTT2tXJN
