Day One of the Build More Inflation Act Markup
House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans offered many amendments during the first day and night of the Democrats’ markup of the Build More Inflation Act— Speaker Pelosi’s grand socialist agenda to destroy freedom and embolden our enemies on the backs of American families.
The Build More Inflation Act will lead to a federal takeover of many industries and raise costs on American families. Spending $3.5 TRILLION on radical political priorities will drive up already high inflation for all Americans and hit low-income families the hardest.
Republicans on Energy led many amendments focused on solving the many challenges facing America right now.
Democrats blocked every. single. one.
Here’s a summary of Day 1 after more than 15 hours of debate.
