that mistake again. >> brooke: barrasso says this is before the midterm in november, watch. >> what manchin and democrats are proposing are two cardinal sins you don't want to do, raise taxes in m middle of recession and do massive government spending. they have 725-page bill, over billion dollars a page. >> brooke: the biden administration is being accused of trying to fool americans on the state of the economy. heritage action of america writing no matter how the biden administration attempts to redefine the term recession. saying inflation is concerning
2:23 am
and spreading across the economy. >> carley: thank you so much, after joe manchin gave the green light to the bill, president biden made that big speech after the gdp number came out and said this was a huge economic win. two groups, one from penn wharton says inflation reduction act would increase inflation until 2024 and decrease after that. if goal is to increase inflation now, the name of the fill, this is not it. it is 9.1% right now and penn wharton, a nonpartisan group, one joe manchin cites a lot says it will not do what it promises to do. the joint committee on taxation says this bill will increase taxes on everyone for americans
2:24 am
earning less than $200,000. 14.1 billion tax increase for americans earning between 200 and 500. >> todd: your favorite model is penn wharton, two more points, no def cision reduction until 2027, that is five years away. you mention inflation will go down, it is negligible. there is no impact until the year 2031. my gas prices are high in 2022, i don't want to wait until 2031. >> carley: rushing it through because more americans learn about this, more they dislike it, says the "wall street
2:25 am
journal." sticking with this economic front and social media tie-in, facebook is policing individuals who question the white house definition of recession, fact checking industry experts speaking out on the state of the economy, that top economist, american institute for economic research phillip magnus joins me now. what did you say in your facebook post that facebook fact checked? >> i shared a screen shot of the white house's own website where they attempted to redefine inflation. there is textbook definition, shorthand, but works, describes all recession we've had in the united states over the past century. just sharing that caused facebook to put a fact check notice on my page.
2:26 am
>> carley: when fact checkers get it wrong and check something accurate, where does that leave us? i guess that is why you are calling it orwellian. >> it partners up with facebook step nothing and carrying water on behalf of the white house for political reasons, not economic reasons. >> carley: have you complained to facebook? sometimes they say it was labeled misinformation in error, have you had a conversation with the platform? >> i've had nothing in return from them, i did share a screen shot of the post saying sunlight is the most disinfectant here, they are using political talking points in lieu of fact checking, becoming partisan actors here. >> carley: they are. it is unbelievable, it is not
2:27 am
the first time this happened and won't be last. we will ask you about the economy, what do you make of this inflation reduction act? we were just talking about the penn wharton model that said it would slightly increase inflation, is that true? >> i am concerned about it, i think the white house is playing catch up, they ignored inflation as an issue for the last year calling it transitory, pretending it would go away. they are finding themselves 9% year over year, they are playing catch up ineffectively going back to tax and spend habit, joe biden agenda from the beginning. >> carley: what would you tell the president to do with 9.1% inflation? >> first of all, we need to be honest with people, stop trying to manipulate the terms and what
2:28 am
is going on, inflation is occurring and part of that is because we fell asleep on the watch, federal reserve fell asleep, historical mandate has been price stability. there are investigatives -- inflationary crisis underway, getting back to the fact of that and acknowledging it and confronting it is the step the white house needs to take. >> carley: definitions shouldn't be controversial, but apparently today it is. phillip, thank you for speaking out, we appreciate it. >> ink that you for having me. >> carley: firefighters in california are working to contain the state's largest wildfire of the year, which has burned over 50,000 acres, we have the latest coming up.

company, family, friends, people out of state. i had posted looking on facebook, which is how i met leannewestman, who has been helping me find the formula, family and friends and people looking out of state. there was one point where storm ended up having to not get the formula because i couldn't find it anywhere. i had to make the decision which baby will get nutrientss they need today, that shouldn't be any type of decision. >> todd: that is insane, do you feel forgotten by the biden administration? >> absolutely. honestly, i feel like the biden administration is more concerned with other countries and the border, honestly from the
2:38 am
american perspective, they forgot about us. i understand we should be a charitable country, but to what extent? >> todd: what does it say the wealthiest country on this planet can't feed formula to its own babies? >> it is pretty disgusting to me quite frankly, something i never imagined in my lifetime, i can assure you. >> todd: $500 a month to feed the twins, do you think 350e7el in charge don't have a clue as to how much it costs? >> absolutely not, why do they have to worry about it? no big deal for them. they can find what they need, it is up to us to figure it out and work together and make it work to feed our children. i don't think it is our responsibility to do that.
