RNC Chief Ronna McDaniel describes the way the Biden administration thinks it will fool you by semantic sleight of hand.
The Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that 78% to 90% of the “revenue” from adding 87,000 IRS enforcers would come from small businesses making under $200K.

McDaniel: This week, the Consumer Price Index soared by 8.5 percent compared to last year as Americans continue to struggle to afford everyday items. Instead of acknowledging the inflation crisis and the impact it’s having on families nationwide, Joe Biden tried to claim that the numbers showed “zero” inflation. As Biden settles into a week-long beach vacation, he doesn’t care about what voters think: he cares about avoiding blame for the crises he created. In other words, he is lying, and it’s not the first time.
Remember how he and his administration described inflation as “temporary” and “transitory” even as skyrocketing prices kneecapped families and made essential goods almost unattainable? Obama-Biden administration economists warned that pumping needless trillions into the economy would have negative consequences, but for Joe Biden all that matters is trying to change the narrative for political gain.
Biden tried the same cheap sleight of hand with the gas crisis his policies created. Gas prices are close to $2 more per gallon than when Biden took office, and yet he had the audacity to claim Americans are “saving” money on gas. In fact, the average family has lost $1,500 due to higher energy prices since Biden took office.
Two weeks ago, new economic data clearly illustrated that America is experiencing a recession. Joe Biden seems to be the only person who disagrees. When asked that same day if we were experiencing a recession, Biden replied that “doesn’t sound like a recession to me” before walking away from the press.
Let’s get something straight: a recession happens when we see two consecutive quarters of negative growth in our economy. Don’t believe me? Ask Biden’s own advisors, CNN, The Washington Post, PolitiFact, and USA Today – they’ll all tell you the same thing. Biden tried to re-write the definition of the word to cover for his own administration’s failure. The American people know that we’re in a recession. 72 percent of voters think the economy is “weak” and 64 percent say their financial situation is “getting worse.” Senate Democrats’ response? Passing a bill that will make inflation worse and raise your taxes.
Go back further to when Biden oversaw a deadly and disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. The American embassy was hurriedly evacuated, images of desperate Afghans clinging to planes went viral, and hundreds of Americans were left behind. Thirteen brave U.S. service members died in a bombing that didn’t have to happen. Now, the brutal, repressive Taliban is running Afghanistan into the ground as a result of the Biden administration’s failure.
Any reasonable person would look at the facts and deem such a foreign policy debacle a failure. Biden called it an “extraordinary success.”
The Biden administration has also described mothers as “birthing people” and failed to label the ongoing disaster at our southern border as a crisis. News flash for Joe Biden and his administration: women are women, and four million illegal immigrants crossing the border since he took office is, in fact, a crisis.
