Jim Jordan vs truth (Jordan wins because R)

Jim Jordan on Twitter:

Last week, House Democrats voted to take your guns.

This week, Senate Democrats may vote to raise your taxes.

Such a deal!

Brian Taylor Cohen responds on Twitter:

The Inflation Reduction Act will not raise taxes on anyone making $400,000 a year or less. In fact, it only closes tax loopholes that are exploited by the wealthy and corporations.

IOW: Republican politicians can frame "raising taxes on the rich" as "raising YOUR taxes", and Republican voters will buy it.

TLDR: Republicans can lie and totally get away with it.
