but still a repug as he bows out with shots at Biden's ability, the president of recent times who has accomplished the most legislation that actually made the average American's life better...1) $1.2 trillion n infrastructure package; The $1.9 trillion COVID relief deal; lowest unemployment in 50 years; revitalized NATO to back Ukraine; the Cares Act which sent direct $1,000 payments to Adult Americans and $500 per child which helped tremendously during the depths of the covid pandemic and massive job losses; and of course the Chips Act which is bringing chip manufacturing jobs back to the US.

There's also the lowering of medication costs through negotiations now with big pharma.

Buh-bye, Mitt...still nothing but a repug.
