Every time I see a tweet from Manchin or Cinnamon (intentional sp), I post this

"Remember, we never passed BBB thanks to you and your partner from AZ yet we have this inflation!"

This what people should be thinking about. Would we have this inflation this bad had BBB passed? Democrats should be using this to the point that 14 economists have already made...BBB would reduce inflation ...

A reasonable argument has been made that it wouldn’t significantly make things worse… but claims that it would help with inflation are something of a stretch

Well, BBB wasn't passed and we have record inflation. The economists that Biden refers to according to Biden said that in the long run BBB would help bring down inflation citing lowering of prescription drug costs and help with childcare. I don't know but everything the GOP says about what Biden tries to do they scream impact on inflation and the debt.

It might provide additional financial support to deal with it, but prices and costs would still be going up.
