NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., criticized the “Inflation Reduction Act” for what he argues will create higher taxes for Americans. On “Fox & Friends” Friday, Graham highlighted details of the bill which undermine Democrats’ messaging and will only make economic problems “worse.”

SENATE AIDES HINT AT MANCHIN DISTRESS OVER SPENDING BILL BACKLASH, DESIRE TO AVOID ‘BUILD BACK BETTER’ MENTION

LINDSEY GRAHAM: Well, the CBO says next year inflation will go up or down 0.1%. So that’s not much of a reduction. This bill has tax increases on imported oil. The taxes in the bill will be passed on to consumers at the $75,000 or below level. The subsidies for Obamacare go to people who make $304,000 as a family of four. It is a bunch of B.S. that it will reduce inflation. It’s about as accurate as saying the border’s secure and the Taliban didn’t know Zawahri was in Kabul. This is a fraud. It’s a lie. It’s going to make every problem worse.
