WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – Republicans recently voted against “Mother Earth,” according to Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
She made the comments in reference to a recently passed tax and spend bill called the “Inflation Reduction Act,” which is meant to take the place of the failed “Build Back Better” legislation.
“To lower prescription drug costs, to lower health care costs, to reduce the deficit and paid-for to lower inflation, to save the planet – and every single Republican in the House and in the Senate voted against it,” Pelosi said at a press conference Friday.
“How could they vote against lowering prescription drug costs? How could they vote against helping families with their health care costs? How can they vote against the planet, Mother Earth?” Pelosi said. “Mother Earth gets angry from time to time, and this legislation will help us address all of that.”

The legislation includes billions of dollars for new climate change spending, including “$3 billion, [to] invest in community led projects in disadvantaged communities and community capacity building centers to address disproportionate environmental and public health harms related to pollution and climate change,” according to an analysis from Senate Democrats.
The legislation pours billions of dollars into solar and wind technology as well.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has officially crossed a line by weaponizing the FBI to target America’s most influential conservative leader — former president Donald Trump, a private citizen — without due process and with obvious political bias.
SIGN this petition to FBI Director Christopher Wray - condemn this blatant political policing againt former President Trump.
This single act has sent an unmistakable signal that anyone who holds a dissenting political belief from the leftist regime can have his or her life ruined by the Deep State — forcing them to defend themselves from a faceless FBI attack-arm of the federal government.
The FBI just proved that Donald Trump was right. He’s always been right.— Benny Johnson 🍊 (@bennyjohnson) August 9, 2022
No one will ever forget this.
We cannot stand for the complete corruption and weaponization of America's law enforcement, and especially not the FBI. We must stand united, bold, and patriotic — in the name of liberty, the rule of law, and American Greatness.
SEND A BOLD MESSAGE TODAY: WE ABSOLUTELY CONDEMN THE DESPICABLE FBI RAID ON A PRIVATE AMERICAN CITIZEN — AND WE WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING FOR AMERICA FIRST!
This kind of weaponization of federal agencies against private citizens who hold a dissenting worldview is seen only in third-world countries.
This is exactly why Americans must use their voices and shout even more loudly that this country is worth saving from the ideologues on the radical left who care only about power and control.
We won’t know how fully insane the FBI raid on Trump is until we see the warrant and warrant application. But after Russiagate – years of investigation predicated largely on Clinton campaign misinformation -- if the basis for this isn’t bedrock-solid, there should be hell to pay.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) August 9, 2022

American patriots will continue standing in the way of the left's attempt at hostile takeover, and will always defend America from her enemies — both foreign and domestic.
SIGN NOW: Our Founding Fathers added their names to the Declaration of Independence, and now more than ever is it important to add your name to the growing list of patriots who uphold our inalienable rights and the promise of self-government.
The @FBI raid on President Trump was approved by Director Wray, who also claimed that the illegal FISA warrants used to spy on Trump were constitutional.— Rand Paul (@RandPaul) August 9, 2022
Today’s raid is outrageous and unjust, but predictable.
Stand up against the targeting of private American citizens from FBI raids - we refuse to back down!
P.S. — Nobody is safe from politically motivated attacks under the current DOJ. And with 87,000 new IRS agents joining the executive branch, the unaccountable federal government is only growing. Now is the time to push back before it’s too late! SIGN NOW AND STAND STRONG TOGETHER!
After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) August 9, 2022
Despite its name, the “Inflation Reduction Act” is expected to have minimal impact on inflation but will reduce job opportunities and Gross Domestic Product, according to an analysis from the Tax Foundation.
Republican National Committee co-chair Tommy Hicks criticized the legislation strongly.
“It’s clear that if Americans simply know the truth behind the bill, and what it will do to their pocketbooks, this latest ploy by Biden and the left to remake America leaves congressional Democrats even more vulnerable in November,” Hicks wrote. “Already, 82 percent of Americans say the economy is ‘poor.’ This bill would only worsen every problem plaguing our economy.”
