The price of insulin and the Biden effect.

This is a perfect example of how a masterful use of the presidential bully pulpit can have a big impact on society. Biden managed to get the price of insulin capped at $35.00 a month without having to get congress to write legislation for it (not sure if it could be written to do so).

I am wondering if he will get full credit for it. What is the likelihood that right wingers that are on insulin will realize it's because of Biden that they can now get some relief ? They will probably think its McCarthy who did it.

I hope President Biden hammers that point along with all the other great achievements he has during the campaign. It will take some doing to pierce the veil of the media which is either apathetic to things that are not scandals (not good for ratings) or else actively trying to distort it (like Fox).

1. I've heard many republican politicians taking credit for infrastructure and insulin prices

even though they voted no on those bills literally. They are shameless in taking credit and I don't think any right wing media will give the credit to Biden or any democrats. Same thing happened to ACA.

I've seen interviews where they will praise their state ACA and then curse at ObamaCare in the next sentence even though they are literally the same thing, just named differently for each state and the right wing media programmed them to hate ObamaCare.
