Knoxville-area congressional candidate Mark Harmon today called on his opponent, Tim Burchett, to remove a factual error in Burchett's online constituent newsletter.

Burchett wrote the Inflation Reduction Act will "increase the United States' deficit by $146 billion."

The Congressional Budget Office calculated that "enacting this legislation would result in a net decrease in the deficit by $102 billion over the 2022-2031 period."

"I'm worried some partisan hack is writing Burchett's material. We constituents at a minimum deserve factual accuracy," said Harmon.

Burchett, a Republican, has yet to respond to the Democratic candidate Harmon's call for televised debates between them.

Tim will not debate.

Tim has abandoned every value he held when he started in government. He is nothing more than a political hack and a traitor representing his own self interests. He has been the most disappointing failure in East Tennessee political history.

He's a Trumper and he doesn’t care. He's having a good time making his government salary while denigrating others. He fits in with the deplorable MAGAs.
