Democrats think raising taxes will fix the inflation they created. The misnamed “Inflation Reduction Act” will supercharge the price hikes wrecking our economy and force families to pay more in taxes. When I get to the Senate, I’ll be ready to stop to these socialist boondoggles.

From the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on August 5th:

Payroll employment rises by 528,000 in July; unemployment rate edges down to 3.5%
Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 528,000 in July, and the unemployment rate edged down to 3.5 percent. Both total nonfarm employment and the unemployment rate have returned to their February 2020 pre-pandemic levels.

As usual, there was much hilarity in the responses to Eric Schmitt (r):

Would have voted to prevent capping insulin at $35 a month?

DEMOCRATIC PRIORITIES: Reduce inflation, make prescription drugs more affordable, protect the climate, more jobs, protect human rights

REPUBLICAN PRIORITIES: Defend Alex Jones, insurrection, higher insulin costs, break up marriages, force 10 year olds to have their rapists’ baby

Maybe you should sue somebody about it. That’s the only thing you do anyway you useless grifter.

Keep in mind that you weren’t the best Eric. You just weren’t (quite) the worst Eric. Raising the tax rate for those making over $400,000 per year will have negligible impact on Missouri families. Wasting our tax dollars on frivolous lawsuits against our school districts hurt.

Don’t you have to go waste our tax money trying to sue china or something? Get out of here

Boring and predictable. Let us know if you ever plan on fighting for anything worthwhile.

Don’t know how to break it to you Sparky but most Americans don’t make more than $400,000 a year, but then again they don’t have access to all that nice corporate cash or all that dark money you’ve got.

If you were to get to the Senate, you would be every bit the failure you are as AG.

Oh my gawd. What a load of crap.

Dude, you sue the school systems. Lol

Democrats created global inflation? If you think most families make 400k+ you are quite out of touch. Personally, I’m happy that billion dollar companies will have a minimum tax.

If you get to the Senate you’ll be to busy grandstanding to know what the hell is going on.

Cringeworthy that you are anywhere near a political office.

Inflation is a global thing. No one party did anything to start it,and the donors of the GQP are in profiteering off of it.

“Socialist” is an interesting way of describing getting rich people to pay SLIGHTLY more ! [….]

So the only way to keep inflation down is to let corporations not pay taxes, so they don’t increase their prices? How the fuck is that going so far?

As a Missourian Mr. Schmitt, let me say this…you are a freaking moron.

“If you’re not a tax cheat, hedge fund manager or a corporation making over $1 billion, you’re not affected.”
