What Now?

With a Democrat in the Oval Office and majorities in the Senate and House, 7 of 23 statutes enacted by the 117th United States Congress include the:

  • “American Rescue Plan” facilitating recovery from the COVID pandemic.
  • “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act” to repair highways and manage hazardous materials.
  • “CHIPS and Science Act” bringing microchip production back to America.
  • “Respect for Marriage Act” protecting same-sex and interracial marriage.
  • “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act” addressing mental health, school safety, gun safety, and hazardous materials.
  • “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” addressing inflation, prescription drug prices, energy, climate change
  • “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023” addressing electoral reform, funding for defense of Ukraine, defense, natural disasters, healthcare, and electoral reform.

After quarreling like six-year-olds through15 ballots, House Republicans elected Kevin McCarty speaker.  Now, beside harassing Hunter Biden, persecuting a physician who dedicated his life to fighting infectious diseases, and ginning up, tit-for-tat, attempts to impeach Joe Biden, what mean, mindless “policies” and “programs” do Congressional Republicans have planned for Americans?
