For a brief moment, it seemed like Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was going to block the Inflation Reduction Act.
Sanders gave a scathing speech on the bill on the Senate floor.
However, when it came time to vote, Sanders reversed his objections and passed the legislation.
I Hate It, But I Support It
On Saturday, Sanders ripped the bill on the Senate floor.
He even cited the studies we have referred to that stated the bill will not help inflation.
Sanders stated, “According to the [Congressional Budget Office] and other economic organizations that have studied this bill, it will have a minimal impact on inflation.”
He continued, “This legislation does not address any of their needs.
“This legislation does not address the reality that we have more income and wealth inequality today than at any time in the last hundred years.”

Yet, when it came time to pass the bill, Senator Sanders once again proved that he is a fraud.
His concerns were set aside, and he voted in favor of the bill.
It is all political theater, and, sadly, the American people are paying for it.
