[WATCH] Doug Jones: ‘Democrats Are Getting Things Done’

Shock erupted on Capitol Hill last week when Congress passed a vital economic law on computer chips while Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) negotiated on a climate and health care bill which could reach President Joe Biden’s desk within the week. The Inflation Reduction Act provides new funds to fight climate change and also lowers prescription drug costs, while closing some tax loopholes as well.

Not only are Democrats delivering on President Biden’s campaign promises, but they’re also still managing to pass vital legislation at a time when Republican obstruction seems nearly insurmountable. “It’s the only bill that can reduce the cost of living for Americans immediately.” President Biden said of the bill. “Republicans have offered a lot of criticism, but they’ve offered no answers. That’s because they want an issue; they don’t want to solve a problem.”

Now that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) is on board, the bill has a clear path to the President’s desk once it’s passed in Congress. Democrats have also voted on gun control and abortion protections in the wake of the conservative Supreme Court’s recent rulings.

There’s also the recent jobs report which showed a whopping 528,000 new jobs were added in July, keeping the unemployment rate near the same historic lows the country first reached this past winter.

“People may be cynical about it, but things seem to be happening” in Washington, said New York Times columnist David Brooks. “If we had a normal Republican Party, you would get a bunch of Republican votes for this thing.”

Former Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) says “It’s a hell of an impressive bill…it’s important for the country,” in a new interview on MSNBC. Jones also refuses to give in to the “Debbie Downers” who say the party will be hit hard in the midterms, saying the new bills being passed will “give folks hope” and boost Democrats at the polls.
