Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau praised Joe Biden’s ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ this week. The legislation provides billions in subsidies for Electric Cars built in North America, many north of the border.
“It’s official: @POTUS signed legislation that will include Canada in a new tax incentive for electric vehicles purchased in the US,” Trudeau said Tuesday on Twitter. “This is good news for Canadians, for our green economy, and for our growing EV manufacturing sector.”
Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act on Tuesday
“With this law, the American people won, and the special interests lost,” Biden said. “This administration began amid a dark time in America… a once-in-a-century pandemic, devastating joblessness, clear and present threats to democracy and the rule of law, doubts about America’s future itself — and yet we’ve not wavered, we’ve not flinched, and we’ve not given in.”
“Using your taxes to boost the Canadian automobile manufacturing sector is not going to reduce inflation in the United States, but it is quite a gift to Canada, the same country that sued the U.S. in the WTO to get us to remove country of origin labels from our beef and pork,” Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., said Wednesday in response to Trudeau.
