The Democrats pushed through another massive spending bill. The $737 billion Inflation Reduction Act was signed into law by President Joe Biden on Tuesday.
It's interesting that it was given the name Inflation Reduction Act since $369 billion is going toward investments in "Energy Security and Climate Change."
Either way, the signing of the bill resulted in another cringey moment with President Biden, Chuck Schumer, Joe Manchin and the gang. President Biden came out with a mask on, which should come as a surprise to no one.
Before the signing Biden took off his mask, coughed in his hand, signs the bill and then shakes hands with everyone in the room.

The quadruple-vaxed Biden is just coming off two separate bouts with the Rona.
As much as Joe Biden wears masks it seems like he never has them on when he coughs. Who could forget this classic Biden moment when he followed up the cough into his hand with the handshake with no one.
As we reach the final quarter of 2022, Joe Biden is still our president. Many people suggested that would not be the case. But when the alternative is Kamala Harris that certainly complicates moving on.
