Today, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on Joe Biden raising taxes on Americans during a recession:
“With the stroke of a pen, Joe Biden will guarantee congressional Democrats’ careers will come to an end. Biden and Democrats raised taxes on hardworking Americans and gave $80 billion to the IRS to hire 87,000 new IRS agents. Americans will never forget that Biden and Democrats raised taxes during a recession.”
Fairfax County just mailed out its 2022 car tax bills, and the tax increase is substantial.
The Board of Supervisors granted us a 15% discount off of the inflated 2022 Blue Book vehicle values.
That’s nice, but it looks like the Board failed to mention that the car tax was increasing for a second reason: the “subsidy” was reduced for the first $20K value of the car.
Here are some car tax facts for my personal vehicle.
Senate Budget Committee Ranking Member Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today released this statement after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) confirmed the Manchin-Schumer “Inflation Reduction Act” would do nothing to address inflation. Last week, Graham asked CBO about the current fragile state of our nation’s economy and the potential impact of this latest Reckless Tax and Spend bill.
“When it comes to the Manchin-Schumer so-called ‘inflation reduction’ proposal, another shoe has just dropped. According to CBO analysis, the proposal’s effect on inflation is negligible at best.”
Joe Biden’s “victory lap” on gas prices keeps getting more bizarre.
Gas prices are above $4 a gallon on average nationwide.
Prices are higher than at any point in history before Biden took office.
By Biden’s own logic, families with two cars are spending over $180 more per month than when he took office.
Families have already lost $1,500 paying increased energy costs.
Today, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released new data indicating the U.S. economy shrank 0.9 percent in the second quarter of 2022, meeting his own economic advisers’ definition of a recession.
With the economy also plummeting 1.6 percent in the previous quarter, today’s data now marks two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth.
Today, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on one year since Biden’s inflation lie:
“Biden lied, Democrats rubberstamped his failed policies, and now Americans are paying the price. Biden and Democrats continue to make up excuses while historic inflation and high gas prices wipe out wages. Voters know inflation has not been temporary, but one-party Democrat rule will be.”
Today, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on the June Consumer Price Index:
“This is insanity. There is no end in sight for families struggling with their wages and livelihoods being wiped out by Bidenflation. Everyone feels the cost of Biden and Democrats’ reckless spending as Americans strain to afford gas and groceries. Voters know the best way to combat inflation is to vote out Democrats in November who rubberstamped Biden’s failed agenda.”
Today, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on the May state jobs numbers:
“The numbers don’t lie and the contrast in leadership is stark – while Joe Biden and Democrat policies leave families behind, Republican governors are creating jobs and economic opportunity. Americans trust Republican leadership to unleash prosperity and know Democrats are to blame for rising prices and the pain at the gas pump. The choice couldn’t be more clear this November.”
Governor Glenn Youngkin signed HB1239, sponsored by Delegate Phillip A. Scott, into law, empowering localities to cut car tax rates and prevent huge tax hikes driven by driven by dramatic increases in used vehicle values.
“With prices soaring on the necessities that families and individuals use every day, Virginians are in dire need of relief to their wallets,” Governor Youngkin said.
Governor Glenn Youngkin announced that he would send a bill to the General Assembly in the upcoming special session to suspend Virginia’s gas tax for 3 months. The Governor proposes using over $437 million in unanticipated transportation revenues to support the gas tax holiday. Data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics this week showed a 38.8% surge, year over year, in the gasoline index, and inflation on all items is at a 40-year high.
“These rising gas prices are hurting Virginians, and we need to do something about it,” Governor Youngkin said.
