    SUMMARY: THE INFLATION REDUCTION ACT OF 2022
    Updated: August 11th, 2022

    The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will make a historic down payment on deficit reduction to fight inflation,
    invest in domestic energy production and manufacturing, and reduce carbon emissions by roughly 40 percent by 2030. The bill will also finally allow Medicare to negotiate for prescription drug prices and extend the expanded Affordable Care Act program for three years, through 2025.
    Total Deficit Reduction: $300+ Billion

    (https://www.democrats.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/inflation_reduction_act_one_page_summary.pdf)

      1. Expands Medicare benefits: free vaccines (2023), $35/month insulin (2023) and caps out-of-pocket drug costs to an estimated $4,000 or less in 2024 and settling at $2,000 in 2025

      2. Lowers energy bills: cuts energy bills by $500 to $1,000 per year

      3. Makes historic climate investment: reduces carbon emissions by roughly 40% by 2030

      4. Lowers health care costs: saves the average enrollee $800/year in the ACA marketplace, allows Medicare
      to negotiate 100 drugs over the next decade, and requires drug companies to rebate back price increases
      higher than inflation

      5. Creates manufacturing jobs: more than $60 billion invested will create millions of new domestic clean
      manufacturing jobs

      6. Invests in disadvantaged communities: cleaning up pollution and taking steps to reducing environmental
      injustice with $60 billion for environmental justice

      7. Closes tax loopholes used by wealthy: a 15% corporate minimum tax, a 1% fee on stock buybacks and
      enhanced IRS enforcement

      8. Protects families and small business making $400,000 or less

    Speaker Pelosi:

    Dear Colleague on Passage of Inflation Reduction Act

    AUGUST 12, 2022

    Dear Democratic Colleague,

    “Today is a day of extraordinary progress for America’s families, as we send to President Biden the Inflation Reduction Act to be signed into law. Thank you to all of our Members for the unity, optimism and persistence you have brought to this fight. This historic achievement would not have been possible without the leadership of House Democrats, who laid the foundation for many of the life-saving and life-changing provisions in this bill.

    Here is what passage of this landmark legislation means to your constituents:

    For our seniors: this legislation will lower out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs, bringing prices down and capping drug costs at $2,000 per year.
    For our working families: this legislation will lock in lower premiums under the Affordable Care Act, saving 13 million families an average of $800 a year.
    For our children: this legislation powers our transition to a clean energy future and fights the climate crisis, with clean air and clean water today and saving the planet for generations to come.
    For our future: this legislation invests in reducing the deficit by nearly $2 trillion over two decades, driving down inflation in the long-term.
    Proudly, this legislation is a giant step forward in President Biden and Democrats’ relentless commitment to justice: from economic and health equity to tax fairness to environmental justice. And in keeping with Democrats’ fiscal responsibility, all of these monumental investments are fully paid for – ensuring the biggest corporations and ultra-rich tax cheats pay their fair share.

    This resounding victory For The People is a fitting capstone to a momentous week. President Biden signed into law the CHIPS and Science Act to ensure America wins the 21st Century; the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO to bolster our defense of Democracy; and the PACT Act to honor our duty to care for our heroic veterans.”

    Trump Lawyer Told Justice Dept. That Classified Material Had Been Returned
    The lawyer signed a statement in June that all documents marked as classified and held in boxes in storage at Mar-a-Lago had been given back. The search at the former president’s home on Monday turned up more

    “In an appearance on Fox News on Friday night,
    the right-wing writer John Solomon,
    whom Mr. Trump has designated as one of his representatives to interact with the National Archives,
    read a statement
    from the former president’s office
    claiming that Mr. Trump had a “standing order” during his presidency
    that “documents removed from the Oval Office
    and taken to the residence
    were deemed to be declassified
    the moment
    he removed them.”

    (https://www.nytimes.com/2022/08/13/us/politics/trump-classified-material-fbi.html)

    • August 14, 2022 at 12:41 pm

      “The new excuse that we can expect to hear more of in the coming days is that all of the documents were declassified by Trump. The problem is that Trump doesn’t have the power to declassify all types of documents. There are some of the highest-level secrets that any president can’t unilaterally declassify.”

      Easley: ((https://www.politicususa.com/2022/08/13/trump-moved-boxes.html)

    • August 14, 2022 at 12:42 pm

      NYT reported:
      “The Justice Department also subpoenaed surveillance footage from Mar-a-Lago
      recorded over a 60-day period, including views from outside the storage room.
      According to a person briefed on the matter, the footage showed that,
      after one instance in which Justice Department officials were in contact with Mr. Trump’s team,
      boxes were moved in and out of the room…”

    Gotta get out in front of his media ploys…let’s not wait for Trump to lie about PBO,
    or whoever he wants to blame when he gets found out.

    Top Democratic House members request DNI damage assessment of Trump Mar-a-Lago raid

    Two House investigators requested a review and damage assessment of the boxes full of highly classified information seized by the FBI in a raid at former President Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago estate.

    “Former President Trump‘s conduct has potentially put our national security at grave risk,” the lawmakers wrote. “This issue demands a full review, in addition to the ongoing law enforcement inquiry.”

    Lawrence: ‘Merrick Garland Has Outsmarted Donald Trump At Every Turn’

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell explains how Attorney General Garland “has handled the most important week of his life flawlessly” and says “Donald Trump has no idea what to say now with Merrick Garland closing in on him.”

    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LM5H9vlH31s)

    • August 15, 2022 at 12:29 pm

      “Merrick Garland did everything he possibly could to protect Donald trump’s privacy…then Donald Trump decided for some reason, that it was in his interests to make public an FBI search of his home and that’s how we found out about it.”

  49. August 15, 2022 at 12:31 pm

    “Donald Trump is always the ultimate victim, but he is at his most dangerous when he slyly insists that his followers are the ones under attack, convincing the MAGAs who had nothing to do with Trump’s crimes that they’re the real target. This is what Trump did with his dangerous late-night tirade on Truth Social last night.

    Trump goes third-person (taking himself out of the equation) and screams that the government is trying to destroy the MAGA movement and democracy.”
