Su. Cardin denies Democrats' Inflation Reduction Act will increase taxes during recession

“Domingo de Fox News” El presentador Mike Emanuel le preguntó a Cardin si estaba preocupado incluso después de que Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., una vez dijo que una recesión es el momento equivocado para aumentar los impuestos, noting how economists warned that more spending by the government could aggravate supply chain issues seen over the past year.

We’re not raising taxes, lo que estamos haciendo, De hecho, we’re reducing the deficit,” Cardin said. “Asi que, we’re actually taking money out of the economy. Asi que, that’s good news for the inflation, and we’re dealing with the cost centers that typical families are facing in health care and energy costs. Asi que, this should be helpful for American families, and it should be helpful for our economy, and it will help us with inflation.

The bill includes $ 80 billion to ramp up enforcement at the Internal Revenue Service.

“Senador, rich people have accountants and high-powered attorneys. Do you worry that ramped up enforcement will only end up hurting middle and working class Americans?” Emanuel asked.

I have worked with Republicans and Democrats to try to modernize the IRS. Most Americans pay their taxes. Most Americans have their taxes taken out from their payroll. There’s never a question of whether they’re paying their fair share of taxes. But for those that have complicated incomes, for those that have high incomes, they’re the ones who are escaping,” Cardin said.

He said there’s an estimated $ 1 trillion leakage in tax collections every year.

I think most Americans want a level playing field. They want to pay their taxes, but they want everyone else paying their taxes. Asi que, I think this is a fair situation. The IRS desperately needs help, and this bill gives them the help they need,” Cardin added.

Can you understand how 87,000 new IRS agents would scare the heck out of millions of Americans?” Emanuel countered. To that, Cardin replied, “millions of Americans are not going to be impacted by that, other than getting better service from the IRS, getting their telephone answered, getting answers to the questions they need in order to comply with our tax laws.

The auditing is going to be focused on those with high incomes, the large corporations, etc. Asi que, there’s no reason to be fearful. And if you paid your taxes, and you complied with our laws, you should want to make sure everyone else does that,” Cardin said.

The senator praised the compromises made in the bill, and specifically Su. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., for getting 50 Democrats together to make thelargest investment everin climate and health care costs. Regarding reconciliation, aunque, Cardin said it would be much better if every member was participating in the bipartisan process.

I’m very confident that I’ve seen discipline over these votes where the Democrats have stuck together. Asi que, I’m optimistic we’ll have our 50 votes and, with the vice president, 51 to pass it in the next few hours,” Cardin said Sunday. “Asi que, sí, there are things that I would like to have seen done that weren’t done, including the tax code, but this is a great bill for the progressives. It’s a great bill for America. It’s a great deal of a bill for American families.
