Democrats have earned this
President Biden is going to get a bill quite soon that won't have any Republican votes attached to it. The blunt truth is that I wished for at least a smattering of GOP support from Congress to send the Inflation Reduction Act to the president.
Alas, it didn't happen. However, I am going to say loudly and clearly that Democrats in the Senate and the House have done well for those of they represent across the land.
House Democrats today stood together to enact the IRA. It seeks to reduce inflation, seeks to reduce carbon emissions, seeks to reduce the cost of drugs.
Republicans, of course, say it doesn't do anything to help us. I will disagree with their bloviating.
The Inflation Reduction Act represents a significant effort to curb climate change. Indeed, it is this nation's largest-ever investment to help curb carbon emissions.
I have to ask: Why is that a bad thing?
It's not a bad thing at all! Republican obstructionists, though, remain bound to their commitment to block anything President Biden and Democrats want to accomplish.
It is to their everlasting shame. Democrats, meanwhile, have earned the nation's gratitude. They have, as Joe Biden once declared, produced a big fu**ing deal.
