Her wild and preposterous specu- lations about the Inflation Reduc- tion Act of 2022 are very transparent and laughable. It's more than obvious that Democrats are continuing to put in work to benefit the American people; In the meantime, what have conservatives done in the past year and a half? Nothing but whine, obstruct and offer nothing more than rhetoric- filled excuses. at will no longer work in the real world. e American people have had enough of Republicans doing nothing but blocking progress and attempting to drag America backwards. Case in point: is Spring, when a bipartisan committee was formed to tackle the inflation problem, not one Republican even showed up, much less offered a workable solution. It's more than obvious that conservatives only care about millionaires and billionaires who put money in their pockets, while the American working and middle classes, who keep the economy going, are ignored and excessively taxed. Here's the reality: After Demo- crats win a historic victory in the November midterm elections, they will be running the tables for the next decade, possibly beyond. Prog- ress and prosperity will happen, and conservatives can thump all the bibles they want after the fact. ere will be a higher minimum wage, voting rights, abortion rights, and strengthening of social security and Medicare. Our nation's crum- bling infrastructure will finally and realistically be dealt with. Much needed gun control laws will be in place to protect our school children so they can have a proper education without fearing for their lives. Oh, teachers will be allowed to teach, without the conservative dogma. As the late President John F. Ken- nedy once said: A great change is at hand. And conservatives will no longer hold back America from the future and promise it deserves. It's not about a BIG government, it's about a BETTER government — one that will benefit all Americans, instead of a privileged few. —Keith Ranson, Fayetteville Editor's note: e referenced article by Paige Terryberry ran in the Aug. 24 issue.
