Messaging inflation:

The Trump administration spent valuable taxpayer resources on tax cuts for people who didn't need and who lied about pumping those tax cuts back into the economy. That money would have been available to help families facing inflation hardship today. And the GOP and a couple of Democrats who benefited from those HUGE GOP-Trump tax cuts doubled down on their selfish policies by refusing to approve major segments of Biden's BBB such has child tax credits, prescription drug cost reduction, student loan forgiveness, and green energy that would have produced thousands of higher paying jobs.

This is the "spin" the Democrats should be giving over the airwaves. I don't hear any of it. Elections really do have consequences and we are living the consequences of the 2016 election that ushered in a bunch of know-nothing, do-nothing, self-serving, criminal bigots with ego-manic, fascists intentions that played out starting with McConnell denying Obama his SCOTUS pick and resulting in a major insurrection on Jan 6, 2021.

Did I miss anything?

1. It's beyond me why democrats don't take advantage of the message that is handed to them.

No way to get to the "heavies" Their emails and tweets are all read and sorted by staff. They seldom get to see the good stuff. Only a few have Twitter accounts open to private mail.

Sometimes Dems are too cautious with their public discourse. We need to be more "in your face" with our messaging. The proof of that is in looking at how much coverage the MAGAs and incredulous GOPer get for their outrageous statements. And they fundraise off of every lie and ignorant statement they make.
