FACT CHECK: Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 does not raise taxes on the middle class

Burnsville, MN – Yesterday, GOP Congressional candidate Tyler Kistner slammed policies to lower prescription drug costs, make historic investments in homegrown biofuels, and force large corporations to pay their fair share in taxes.

FACT CHECK: The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 does not raise taxes on the middle class. The only tax increases are on large corporations or those using Wall Street loopholes.

“Tyler Kistner’s fight to sink legislation that will bring costs down for Minnesota families because of his reliance on campaign donations from dark money special interest groups is the latest in a long list of reasons he is not fit to represent this district in Congress,” said Angie Craig for Congress communications director Laura Cottrell. 

The recently introduced Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 includes several of Rep. Angie Craig’s priorities including:

  • Making health care more affordable for working families.
  • Lowering prescription drug costs by allowing Medicare to directly negotiate prices.
  • Making historic investments in homegrown biofuels and supporting Minnesota family farmers.
  • Bringing energy bills down for Americans and expanding access to affordable renewable energy sources.
  • Enacting historic deficit reduction tactics to fight inflation and get the economy back on track.
