In other words—-we have to do more in terms of mental health, outreach etc in this country. Stop putting bandaids on shit.
    Let's just make it legal and tell people not to take it..problem solved. You know most fentanyl overdoses are accidental, right? Remember the opioid crisis that was spinning our of control 10 years ago? Well, the US government took steps to mitigate the flooding of the market by going after the pharma companies and it worked. It's quite possible to attack the supply lines and offer outreach at the same time. My feelings are that I would rather send more support to our southern border than hire 80,000+ tax collectors.. To each their own.

    Here's some backup from the Fiscal Times regarding the agents and who they will be auditing.

    Janet Yellen is a partisan hack who called Inflation “Transitory”. Forgive me if I have zero confidence in anything she has to say. Our economy is in such SUPERB SHAPE NOW! But hitch your wagon to someone who is correct about things as often as Paul Krugman.

    Speaking of zero - didn't Biden just tell us yesterday that "inflation was at zero"?

    That's really strange, so why does he feel the need to pass the "Inflation Reduction Act"?

    If Bari Weiss’s comments are correct, the NYT should rebrand themselves the Democrat Party Times. I know some will immediately discount this because it’s being reported by Fox News. They’re simply reporting what Bari said in her podcast.

    In a nutshell, the Times was considering running an Op-Ed by Senator Tim Scott, a black Republican. A senior staffer at the Times suggested they run it by Senator Schumer before publication. WTF? That apparently did not happen, but the Op-Ed never ran.

    Which is exactly why the Liberal but ultra fair Journalist Bari Weiss resigned from her Editor position at the New York Times.

    This. And now the Inflation Reduction Act will become law with Joe Biden's signature.

    The “Inflation Reduction Act” that almost all economists say will do nothing to stem inflation.
    Even the press knows it. Almost every story is calling it a “Climate & Healthcare” Bill.
    The lying and misrepresentations of this Adminstration are astounding.
    Two quarters of negative growth aren’t a Recession anymore, huh?

    I’m sure if everything was the same right now except Trump, or any Republican, was in office, the lead story from every MSM outlet would be how bad the recession is.
