    Is this supposed to make sense or is it more of Lisa’s hateful scribbling?

    Of course Republicans would rather burn the country down to let the almighty invisible hand of capitalism solve the problems. That’s why Haiti and Sri Lanka are on top of the world.

    Republicans hate this bill because they think it will work. Can’t have gas prices continue falling & inflation recede, while avoiding a prolonged recession that gives them no talking points in 2024.

    Supply side economics, privatization, and unregulated capitalism are NOT working — as the forced-birth party has promised us they would — to prevent inflation/recession, so it’s time to blame someone else.

    Like I said before, Republicans are desperate for there to be a recession.

    Because patriotism.

    If you thought inflation was bad at 9.1%, hold onto your hat. Now that the Dems have passed their “Build Back Better” bill, it’s going to seem like these were the good old days.

    Inflation – Caused by trillions spent by the gov’t. How to fix? Dems – Spend more. Great thinking. Wonder why Biden / Harris polling is now in the 20’s.

    Gas has now fallen, locally 27% from the high. I’m sure Ms. Benson will take note any day now after her incessant reminders when prices were rising.

    This baseless, knee-jerk negativity is just sad. Lisa must have been crying while having to draw this irony, knowing her beloved Republican Party has nothing to offer America but negative cartoons.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/manchin-schumer-agree-reconciliation-deal-after-more-than-year-talks This is the Fox news description of the actual bill, which glosses over the good stuff and emphasizes the not quite as good as we would like stuff. Read it, apparently Lisa hasn’t.

    And the Republican alternative is… just kidding, we all know that Republicans only have tax cuts for the rich and “thoughts and prayers” in their toolbox.

    The conservative republican credo on economics…if it can’t be fixed by a tax break to the wealthy, it’s not worth even trying.

    The Maga crime-family Senators, besides blocking every bill imaginable to help the American people, have also taken petulant revenge on Democrats by blocking bills to provide health care for cancer-stricken veterans exposed to toxic burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan. They really don’t care who or how many they kill with their cruelty and scorched-earth idea of “governance”. Search arg gop senators revenge on veterans yields links such as:

    So, according to right-wing Magas (and FOX “News”), spending $6.7T USD in 2020 (including $3.5T USD in December 2020, alone) to prop up the economy and provide Covid relief was not inflationary, but Biden signing a bill for $3T USD three months later, in March 2021, for Covid relief checks was automagically, somehow… inflationary? Is that how “logic” works in Maga la-la land?

    Must be a Republican. Their stock-in-trade is fear. Without it, people might realize Republicans have nothing to offer and a lot to take.

    Republikans refuse to consider that what is good for business might also be good for the people… and they will always prioritize the former over the latter.

    Gas prices are falling because people are traveling less. Less demand the price lowers. Diesel, OTH, is not dropping. Partially, because oil being refined produces more gas and less diesel. Second, because demand is not dropping. Because diesel is used in 18-wheelers, train locomotives, and tow boats. Most every method of delivering the goods people use. Thus, the cost is baked into all goods.
