Industries, Business Leaders, Taxpayer Orgs: Manchin-Biden Build Back Better Harms Economy, Kills Jobs

Opposition grows to Democrats’ tax-and-spend bill that would crush economy
August 7, 2022 — 'Inflation Reduction Act'    — Bidenflation    — Blog    — Health    — Oversight    — Press Releases    — Select Revenue Measures   

Democrats’ Manchin-Biden Build Back Better would destroy American innovation, raise taxes on lower- and middle-income workers, result in more audits for all Americans, and push the economy further into an inflationary death spiral – all at a time when American families and small businesses are suffering under record-high inflation and a worker shortage.
