Republicans And Their MAGA Agenda Does Nothing to Lower Costs for The American People
May 10, 2022
While President Biden and Democrats are fighting to lower costs for the American people, Republicans have made it clear they are more concerned with playing political games than delivering for working families.
President Biden is taking action to tackle inflation and lower costs for the American people.
White House: “President Biden has a plan to tackle inflation — by lowering costs that families face and lowering the federal deficit by asking the large corporations and the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share.”
White House: “The President understands that the Federal Reserve is the institution that plays a primary role in fighting inflation. The President has nominated highly qualified individuals to lead the Fed, and is urging the Senate to confirm all these individuals without delay. Beyond the Federal Reserve, President Biden is taking short-, medium-, and long-term actions to lower costs for families and lower the deficit.”
On the other hand, Republicans have no plan to lower costs and have actively tried to block efforts by the Biden administration to tackle inflation.
Politico: “Chuck Grassley made quite the admission about prescription drug pricing: Pass it now, because he isn’t sure a GOP-led Congress can get it done.”
NPR: “Senate Republicans blocked a committee vote Tuesday on five of President Biden’s nominees to the Federal Reserve board, delaying their confirmation at a time when the central bank is under growing pressure to crack down on inflation.”
The only plan Republicans have put forward would raise taxes on the middle class, and they voted overwhelmingly against capping insulin costs.

The Independent: “Most House Republicans vote against lowering the price of insulin”
New York Times: “Income Taxes for All? Rick Scott Has a Plan, and That’s a Problem.”
Daily Beast: “At least four GOP candidates in the most important battleground states this fall have either explicitly expressed support for Scott’s plan or have campaigned on the political views that form the foundation of his platform.”
