WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) issued the following statement after voting against H.R. 5376, the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act.”
Earlier this week, Congressman Higgins introduced an amendment to the bill that would have stripped funding for the IRS to add 87,000 enforcement agents. Democrats unilaterally rejected the amendment. See the amendment here.
“Despite unified Republican opposition, Democrats just pushed through a massive tax increase on the American people. They voted to weaponize the IRS against working Americans. This is a horrible bill that will worsen inflation and injure American families. Democrats own this failure, and they will answer for it in November.”
