Chuck Schumer Says Raising Taxes Is The Only Way To Deal With Inflation (VIDEO)

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer thinks the only way to deal with inflation is to raise taxes.

During a press conference, a reporter asked Schumer whether Democrats plan to use the budget reconciliation process to pass legislation (without Republican support) to address the ongoing economic crisis.

“Reconciliation is very, very important,” Schumer responded. “If you want to get rid of inflation, the only way to do it is to undo a lot of the Trump tax cuts and raise rates.

“No Republican is ever going to do that. So the only way to get rid of inflation is through reconciliation,” he added.
