Manchin admits 'Inflation Reduction Act' won't tame inflation for Americans anytime soon
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said after President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act that it would take some time before investments brought down prices nationwide for Americans

Cheney asked for this brutal drumming when she began a near-obsessive campaign to purge Trumpism from the Republican Party. In that effort, she ingratiated herself with Democrats and forgot why she was re-elected to Congress in 2020. She claimed to be a defender of our constitutional republic, and the people fired her. 
The concession speech also provided another reminder of why this woman was sent packing. Cheney compared herself to Abraham Lincoln, took more swipes at Donald Trump, and just expounded on things that provided Wyoming Republicans who voted her out with great confidence that they made the right choice at the polls. 

Cheney is a classic snowflake who thinks her principled stand against Trumpism will echo throughout the ages as the new ‘Goldwater moment.’ No, she was just an anti-Trump Republican who went so crazy that people...Read more, see tweet and video here.
