America's Roundtable

A Conversation with Ambassador Carla Sands | The Impact of the The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 | The Future of America's Energy Security | Update on Israel and the Middle East - A Review of President Joe Biden's Trip to the Region

August 16th, 2022

Join America's Roundtable Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy in a conversation with Ambassador Carla Sands. In 2017, President Trump called on Carla Sands to represent the United States as the Ambassador to Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands (2017-2021).

During her tenure, Denmark increased its defense spending, while U.S. exports to the Kingdom of Denmark rose over 43%, resulting in the creation of additional jobs in America.

Carla Sands also played a leading role in the business sector when she became the first woman to serve as Chairman & CEO of Vintage Capital Group.

The discussion on America's Roundtable focused on the recent economic policies coming from Washington, DC, the future of America's energy security, growing concerns of an emboldened China and rising tensions in the Indo-Pacific region, an update on Israel's efforts to root out terrorist networks in Gaza and the West Bank, also known as Judea and Samaria, and a review of President Joe Biden's visit to the Middle East.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 claims it will help bring down inflation. However, taxpayers funds amounting to $369 billion will be spent on climate change programs over the next ten years.

According to the Penn Wharton Budget Model (PWBM), there’s low confidence that the legislation will have any impact on inflation. PWBM is a nonpartisan, research-based organization at the University of Pennsylvania that creates economic analysis of public policy’s fiscal impact.

There is also concern about the proposed legislation which would invest $80 billion in the nation’s tax agency over the next 10 years.

U.S. Senator Rick Scott issued this following statement: “Are Democrats doing anything to support border patrol as President Biden’s massive border crisis rages on? No. Instead, they want to supersize the IRS and add 87,000 more agents to hunt down and audit even more families and small businesses. It’s a disgusting misuse of taxpayer money and the last thing American families want as drugs flood their communities and they continue to feel the crushing pain of inflation and rising prices.”

Ambassador Carla Sands

As US Ambassador to Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands, Carla Sands proposed and helped establish the U.S. Consulate in Nuuk, Greenland, and assisted with resolving the Thule Base Maintenance Contract dispute. She facilitated partnership agreements between the United States and the people of Greenland and the people of the Faroe Islands and expanded the United States mission in the Kingdom of Denmark to include the United States Coast Guard.

In January 2021, Carla received the Department of Defense’s highest civilian honor, the Medal for Distinguished Public Service, for her work to increase security in the high north while countering Russia and China.

Carla Sands studied biology and chemistry at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Elizabethtown College before receiving her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life Chiropractic College.

Carla Sands went on to follow in her father and grandfather’s footsteps, being the third generation in her family to practice chiropractic in Pennsylvania. In 1999, Carla married the love of her life, Fred Sands. After Fred’s passing in 2015, Carla stepped in to lead his company and became the first woman to serve as Chairman & CEO of Vintage Capital Group. |
