House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) found herself in the crosshairs of some pretty heavy criticism this past Saturday over her comments about the Inflation Reduction Act, which was recently passed and is slated to send out over $350 billion for the implementation of policies that focus on fighting climate change and deal with concerns over environmental justice.
These comments from Pelosi took place directly in the wake of the bill actually making it through both the House and the Senate, entirely along party lines. In her reactions, she seemed to suggest that appeasing “Mother Earth” was a top priority in allowing the measure to crawl across that final checkpoint. President Joe Biden is slated to put his autograph to the bill and sign it into law as soon as he gets back from his trip to South Carolina this week.
“How can they vote against the planet?” posited Pelosi of the Republicans who stood against the bloated sweeping legislation, which also issues funding to add over 87,000 new agents to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) despite previous promises that there would be entirely “no new audits” targeting Americans who exist below a certain threshold.
“Mother Earth — Mother Earth gets angry from time to time,” Pelosi went on. “And this legislation will help us to address all of that.”
“So literately faith based legislation,” stated Aaron Walker via social media.
Julie Gunlock with WMAL seemed to suggest that Pelosi was “day drinking again.”
“Instead of ‘Mother Earth’s’ anger. Perhaps ‘good Catholics’ Pelosi and Biden should both be a good bit more worried about the wrath of ‘Father God’ … ?” chimed in @VRWCTexan, seemingly making reference to the radical positions held by the pair of Democrats concerning abortion.
“For the love of dad. This is what regression looks like,” stated actor Mark Pellegrino.
“We are back to primitive animism here,” claimed Dinesh D’Souza. “The ship sank because the ocean was in a bad mood. Thunder struck because the clouds were having a violent disagreement with each other. Ancient people, however, weren’t dumb enough to think ‘laws’ could change the course of nature.”
“Wouldn’t some flowers and a box of chocolates be more effective and less expensive?” posted @MaryForbes14, labeling the entire thing a #Climate Scam.
“#Marxists are only happy when they a wasting other people’s money. Look at Raskin, having a ‘moment,’” highlighted @WilkowMajority.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) spoke out about the bill in a long address just before it made it through the House.
“Today the majority jams through another spending spree. I believe the largest tone-deaf bill we’ve seen in this chamber in 230 years,” he stated. “Passing this bill today means more expensive bills for Americans tomorrow.”
