A lot of President Biden’s detractors like to act as though all the money being spent now is being sent overseas to Ukraine – ignoring the fact that a lot of the weapons they need have already been produced and foreign spending generally makes up a small part of the budget.

The Inflation Reduction Act and Build Back Better both call for considerable investments in American infrastructure and the economy as well as a number of social programs, enough impact that it’s basically the closest we’ve come to a modern day incarnation of the Roosevelt administration’s New Deal.

The week of Aug 27 to Sept 2 was declared Overdose Awareness week, and on Thursday, the Biden Administration declared that more than $450 million would be spent on preventing deaths related to overdose, with $83 billion spent so far on helping people recover and get treatment, a 42% increase over the last four years.

While the former guy and Republicans are ranting about executing drug dealers and invading Mexico, the Biden administration is getting real results at home and leading the world by example at how to combat opioid abuse. The parallels between the GOP and the Democratic Party have never been clearer than they are today – and while Republicans like to bring up this issue, Democrats are the ones getting results.
