During an interview on “Mornings with Maria” Friday, House Financial Services Committee member Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Ohio, slammed Democrats’ social spending and tax bill, arguing it will not help alleviate the inflationary impacts on American consumers “at all.”
REP. WARREN DAVIDSON: Five infantry divisions worth of IRS agents. And they say they’re going to go after 600 billionaires. They’re going after everybody. And there’s a tax in here of 3.8% on closely held businesses, businesses like the companies I used to own before I ran for Congress. Manufacturing companies, most of our workers are working in small and medium-sized companies and a lot of them are closely held companies.
They’re going to pay an extra 3.8%. They’re looking for every way possible to move money out of the economy. And in that sense, they say we’re going to cool the economy off, and we’re going to help inflation. Taking it out of your pocket and put it in the government, that’s not going to help people deal with inflation at all.
