For you people who think inflation only occurs in the United States, the above chart may help you understand that inflation is a worldwide phenomenon. As you can see Russia has a 17.8% inflation rate. Now Biden is not the head of Russia, Putin, the idol of Trump-loving Republicans, is. Brazil, another country under the rule of a Trump-loving authoritarian leader, has 12.5%. Biden is not Brazil’s leader. The UK, under a Conservative government, has a 9.0% rate of inflation. Once again Biden is not the leader of the UK. So as you read the chart you can see that inflation is a worldwide problem, not just an American problem or a Biden problem.
C-SPAN Screen of the final vote on the Inflation Reduction Act
Now for all of you people voting for the Republicans because you feel they will do more to lower inflation, the above screenshot shows the final vote of the Inflation Reduction Act. For those who don’t know how this bill helps Americans, here is a summary of what it does for families:
Allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices
Capping annual out of pocket costs for Medicare recipients at $2,000, saving them thousands of dollars a year
Capping insulin costs for seniors at $35/month
Penalizing drug companies for unfairly hiking prices
Investing in forest resiliency to prevent catastrophic wildfires
Supporting small forest landowners to improve forest health
Funding climate-smart agriculture programs
Boosting clean energy manufacturing in the U.S.
Creating credits for new and used electric vehicles
Investing in a reliable 21st Century electric grid
Providing home energy efficiency rebates
Reducing air pollution by providing funding to ports to reduce emissions, and cracking down on oil and gas companies that have significant methane leakage
This bill was passed by the Democrats to help American families. As you can plainly see, every damn Republican voted against it. They voted against you. Yet you are going to vote for them to continue to vote against you? Are you that frigging stupid?
You still have time to vote in your best interests. VOTE BLUE!
