IRONDALE — U.S. Congressman Gary Palmer was the featured speaker at the Greater Irondale Chamber’s monthly luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 10, at Pine Tree Country Club. The luncheon was sponsored by Classic Car Motoring.
Palmer shared his views on current events affecting the area and around the globe. A total of $459M has been allocated for the Northern Beltline project. It cannot be spent on anything else. He urged the group to encourage Gov. Kay Ivey and the Department of Transportation Director John Cooper to complete this project.
He gave his thoughts on inflation and what affects it:
- The money supply is too high. Too much money supply bumps up inflation.
- Energy costs are too high. There will be a major increase in power bills, especially in colder climates, this winter.
- Regulatory costs of energy are a hidden tax. Much of this tax is unnecessary.
Palmer also shared that his trust in not in the country, not in the Republican party, but in Jesus Christ. He is the one thing that can pull us all together. Voluntary associations such as chambers of commerce can give people a way to work together to make the country better.
