This morning, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released the Consumer Price Index (CPI) numbers for July, showing that inflation still sits at a sky-high rate of 8.5%. Note: this 8.5% year over year increase comes on top of the 5.4% inflation of last July.
While our nation is dealing with an economic recession and nearly two-thirds of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, Mandela Barnes’ solution is higher taxes on nearly all Americans, trillions more in spending, and doubling the size of the IRS to shake down ordinary taxpayers. It’s fair to ask: With inflation through the roof and families struggling to get by, why does Mandela Barnes support adding an additional 87,000 IRS agents to audit taxpayers?
Skyrocketing inflation, higher taxes, and supply chain shortages is exactly what a Mandela Barnes Wisconsin would look like if he and his Democrat comrades had their way in Washington. Barnes has been a strong advocate for the out-of-control spending packages that led America to economic turmoil, and he only wants more.
“Just like his comrades AOC and Bernie Sanders, Mandela Barnes has proved he will sacrifice the wallets of working-class Americans and balloon our nation’s spending to fundamentally alter our country. Barnes will be just another tax and spend politician that will stick the burden on the working people he claims to represent.” – Republican Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Mike Marinella
