Open Thread | What Actually Is In THE INFLATION REDUCTION ACT OF 2022

Lots of good stuff:

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will make a historic down payment on deficit reduction to fight inflation,
invest in domestic energy production and manufacturing, and reduce carbon emissions by roughly 40 percent by 2030. The bill will also finally allow Medicare to negotiate for prescription drug prices and extend the expanded Affordable Care Act program for three years, through 2025.
Total Deficit Reduction: $300+ Billion

1. Expands Medicare benefits: free vaccines (2023), $35/month insulin (2023) and caps out-of-pocket drug costs to an estimated $4,000 or less in 2024 and settling at $2,000 in 2025

2. Lowers energy bills: cuts energy bills by $500 to $1,000 per year

3. Makes historic climate investment: reduces carbon emissions by roughly 40% by 2030

4. Lowers health care costs: saves the average enrollee $800/year in the ACA marketplace, allows Medicare
to negotiate 100 drugs over the next decade, and requires drug companies to rebate back price increases
higher than inflation

5. Creates manufacturing jobs: more than $60 billion invested will create millions of new domestic clean
manufacturing jobs

6. Invests in disadvantaged communities: cleaning up pollution and taking steps to reducing environmental
injustice with $60 billion for environmental justice

7. Closes tax loopholes used by wealthy: a 15% corporate minimum tax, a 1% fee on stock buybacks and
enhanced IRS enforcement

8. Protects families and small business making $400,000 or less

I want for people to grasp what President Biden has been able to achieve with such a slim majority in the House, and only 48 Democrats in the Senate. Has any President done so much with so little?

I don’t think so.

I also want people to grasp that if the Democrats can keep the House, and expand our lead into the Senate to 52 or 53 Democrats, and we can put into irrelevancy: Manchin, Sinema, and even Bernie. All the things that you heard about that sound great, but, had to be scuttled because of Manchin and Sinema – if we expand our lead in the Senate, then they become irrelevant.

You want better functioning Government, then ELECT MORE DEMOCRATS IN NOVEMBER! Top to Bottom, in every state.

ELECT DEMOCRATS.

The MSM is mad at all that President Biden has achieved. They resent the competence of his administration – always have. Competence and good government, with no leaks, is boring. That doesn’t give them material for books. How can they do a horserace with good governance?

The MSM has been out for President Biden, because he doesn’t help them with their gravy trains. It’s that simple.

Uh huh

Kenny with the truth

Always doing the work👏🏾👏🏾
