The White House on Sunday championed a “string of victories” for President Biden while media coverage centered on the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago, as Democrats ushered through a large spending bill with climate and healthcare measures that received not one supporting vote from Republicans.
Congress passed the sweeping climate, energy and healthcare bill dubbed the Inflation Reduction Act on Aug. 12 despite concerns from Republican and economists that spending would do little to reduce inflation in the immediate future and only bolster the IRS’s capability to go after the middle class.
During a segment on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show,” host Jonathan Capehart seemingly touted Biden’s “winning streak,” noting the president’s approval rating is the highest in two months, though still at a low 40%.
Capehart then gave the floor to White House communications director Kate Bedingfield, who reacted to a clip of Biden ripping every Republican in Congress for voting against the Inflation Reduction Act, and therefore, against “lower prescription drug prices, against lower healthcare costs, against a fairer tax system, against tackling the climate crisis, lower energy costs and good paying jobs.”
