President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats, with help from Republicans, are poised to spend $3.5 trillion during decades of high inflation.
“Pass the Inflation Reduction Act would make Biden one of the most successful presidents in modern legislation,” politics Screenplay Writers Ryan Lizza and Eugene Daniels wrote.
Although congressional Democrats have only four majorities in the House and one in the Senate, Biden has been able to pass a substantial legislative agenda. It’s also worth noting that Biden spent so much money in the first half of his term. This includes:
- The $1.9 trillion American Recovery Act, Biden’s coronavirus relief bill
- The $550 billion so-called Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
- $280 Billion to Create Beneficial Semiconductor Production Incentives (CHIPS) Act
- $700 Billion Inflation Reduction Act
as politics Noting that these spending totaled approximately $3.5 trillion to address many leftist priorities such as “the pandemic and its economic impact, highways, bridges, broadband, railroads, manufacturing, science, prescription drug prices, health insurance, Climate change, deficit reduction and tax equity.”
That spending comes as Americans continue to shrug off record-high inflation.
Biden also expanded NATO to include Sweden and Finland and passed gun control legislation.
While congressional Democrats are largely responsible for passing Biden’s legislation, congressional Republicans often give Biden the votes necessary to advance the 46th president’s agenda.
For example, 13 House Republicans and 19 Senate Republicans gave Democrats the necessary votes to pass the so-called infrastructure bill.
Fourteen Senate Republicans and many House Republicans voted for the CHIPS Act.
Senate Republicans, arguing that a settlement bill was not negotiated, voted to pass the CHIPS Act. This removes any influence Republicans have to block the Inflation Reduction Act.
Without any obstacles, Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced their legislative framework and are now ready to pass the bill in the Senate. The bill is likely to be voted on next week.
This failed strategy has led many Republicans to admit they lost to Democrats.
“We got kicked in the ass. It’s that simple. To me, we looked like rinky-doo’d. It’s the Louisiana word for “fuck it up.” We got kicked in the ass. That’s me The way people back home see it,” said Sen. John F. Kennedy (R-LA).
Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) Say“Yesterday’s statements from Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer show yet again that too many Senate Republicans are unfortunate enough to trust Democrats and have been duped. Some are pretending to be shocked. It’s not shocking at all.”
The Republican-Democratic partnership agenda also extends to major domestic and foreign policy.
Fifteen Senate Republicans and 14 House Republicans voted with Democrats on gun control.
Only two Senate Republicans, Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Rand Paul (R-KY), oppose expanding NATO to include Finland and Sweden.
politics Compare Biden’s legislative success in his first two years as president to a president who passed the Civil Rights Act and the Great Social Welfare Program.
“There isn’t much debate now about whether Biden is a significant president. In the long run, his first two years will likely be remembered as something like LBJ,” politics wrote.
