Cong. Myra Flores Says: Higher Prices & More IRS Audits is Not an 'Inflation Reduction Act'


“This bill is nothing more than a giveaway to liberal donors – at the expense of us, the average American.”

Texas Insider Report: Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Mayra Flores (TX-34) – after voting ‘No’ on the Senate's so-called "Inflation Reduction Act" – said the bill would worsen inflation, increase IRS audits with the hiring of 87,000 agents, and result in more expensive healthcare for all South Texans.

“I may be new to Congress, but anyone who thinks that injecting $745 billion dollars into an economy already suffering with record high inflation is a good idea, should think again,” said Congresswoman Flores.

“This bill is nothing more than a giveaway to liberal donors at the expense of us, the average American. ‘Can’t afford food, gas, or medicine? too bad, enjoy your tax audit’ is clearly the attitude this Administration and liberals in Congress have embraced.”

For reference, the mean household income in TX-34 is $58,810. This means it would take over 12.6+ million years for an average household in our district to pay off this massive legislative bill.
