It is actually an inflation increase bill. electric cars for example are inflationary. when people replace traditional gasoline cars with electric cars. that is about 50 ~ 100% inflation right there. fed will have to get more aggressive.

Sad day for America. It’s seriously time for the Republican led Congress to dismantle the FBI, fully defund government schools, and drastically defund the IRS. It’s time to finish the essential task of culling the dem deep state cabal once and for all.

There are some aspects I like more than others. This does however increase auctions for oil and gas leases in addition to investment in alternative energy sources. Personally I would have liked to have seen more effort go to furnaces and water heaters than EVs. When programs like this have been implemented before, heating and cooling systems with rebates and tax credits still cost more than units with minimized efficiency. Thus not an incentive for lower income and lower middle households. Government purchasing power for some pharmaceuticals like insulin is a step in the right direction. This won't however affect privatized prescription costs. An alternative I recently learned of is pharmacies that don't accept prescription coverage of any kind. The savings is in markups divided between the insurer and the pharmacy. There is savings too in prescription discount cards. Shop around.
