Biden Tax Holiday Stunt Fails the American People, Distracts from Root Causes of Inflation

Press Releases · Jun 22, 2022

WASHINGTON – Today, Heritage Action, a conservative grassroots organization with two million grassroots activists, released a statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson following the Biden administration’s push for a three-month gas tax holiday.

The one campaign promise Biden has kept is his vow to cripple American energy independence. He has done this while also indulging in reckless and partisan spending, increasing the national debt, and blaming everyone except himself for rising prices at the pump. With average gas prices dramatically spiking over $5 a gallon, this tax holiday stunt will do almost nothing to ease the financial burden consumers are facing in Biden’s economy.

The American people don’t want temporary, shallow solutions for long-lasting, record-setting inflation. They want a federal government that will reduce spending, control the national debt, and unleash American energy. The Biden administration is simply unwilling to do this.
