A vote on the Senate’s Inflation Reduction Act could come as early as next week. While the last-minute bill covers a lot of ground, many of the Democrats’ top priorities fell to the wayside during secret negotiations between Senators Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin. CBS News political contributor and Democratic strategist Joel Payne joined Vladimir Duthiers and Christina Ruffini to discuss what’s in, what’s out and what’s next for the legislation.

  1. Clearly, the priorities is to enact the specific agendas of the Left, regarding these topics, while only pretending to address the inflation issue in the form of calling it an inflation reduction. Climate change is happening, but these left wing dems treat it like it is a lid that caps everything else.

  2. On the heels of the hottest summer the Northern Hemisphere has ever seen, U.N. researchers digging through the climate record have reported a chilling discovery: On Dec. 22, 1991, a remote weather station atop the Greenland ice sheet recorded a temperature of minus 93.3 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 69.6 degrees Celsius) — the coldest temperature ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere.

    The frigid new record, announced Wednesday (Sept. 23) in a statement from the U.N.'s World Meteorological Organization (WMO), shivers past the previous record of minus 90.4 F (minus 67.8 C) set in two different towns in the Siberian Arctic, first in 1892 and the other in 1933. For comparison, all three of those extreme lows sneak past the average temperature on Mars, which is roughly minus 81 F (minus 63 C), according to NASA.

  3. So a bill that is called “inflation reduction act” has a bunch of spending and tax increases that will…….increase unemployment and wait for it……..increase inflation 😂

  4. Democrat economics; spend more money during a recession and raise taxes on businesses so that people pay more for goods and services. I hope the GOP takes over both House and Senate in the midterms…

  5. But this money was going to be stolen from the pockets of the poor the working class and the middle class the millionaire and billionaire Democrats of Hollywood and network television on paying anything who is paying for this besides the middle class and the working class not the corporations not the corporations that then hundreds of millions of dollars on the Democratic party not Network television who also making billions and billions of dollars for the Democratic party

  6. What don't you understand? When you infuse more money into the economy you will increase inflation. This will not help the American people!

  7. Democrats …

    A man is not a man.

    A woman is not a woman.

    Inflation is not inflation.

    A recession is not a recession.

    A vaccine is not a vaccine.

    An open border is not an open border.

    If you don't believe these things – you're a racist, science-denier, and a Putin puppet.

  8. I am so sick if living under the Republican lead government. If we want to make America great again, we have to put the same types of people in office like we had in the 1940s and 50s…PROGRESSIVE!

  9. dont worry 🥴..we'll leave you at least 100k of Federal Reserve Digits in your Bank…really just Debt notes…..the rest? well just consider it an Investment loss on the Bankrupt United States ooof America corp…🤡👍
