August is just beginning — but DANG! Already, what a month!
The Biden administration is posting spectacular numbers related to the U.S. economy — concrete, quantifiable achievements, including the lowest unemployment rate in fifty years (3.5%), 528,000 new jobs just in July, and the lowest percentage of uninsured people ever (8%).
Congress wrestled problem-child Dem Senators Manchin and Sinema into passing the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, a landmark piece of legislation that will have a major impact on the national economy, healthcare affordability, and the course of climate change.

The incumbent, Dem Mikie Sherrill (perhaps you’ve heard of her?) gave thoughtful, detailed answers to our questions about the future of democracy, reproductive rights, the economy, gun safety, education, immigration, and more.
Her GOP opponent, some guy from Montville, couldn’t be bothered to respond to our questionnaire, so we can’t be bothered to remember his name.
In addition to ignoring our questionnaire, Mikie’s opponent has been declining to do mainstream press interviews and refused to participate in debates during the GOP primary. What’s he hiding? Perhaps … his extremist positions?Read more
