“In chess, a gambit is when a player sacrifices a piece, usually a pawn, early in a game to obtain some larger competitive advantage. We can now say that the 13 Republicans who voted in early November to pass the infrastructure bill pulled off one of the most effective political gambits in recent memory.”

When Sen. Joe Manchin confirmed on Sunday that he is a no vote on Build Back Better, essentially killing it, it was vindication for the much-pilloried moderate GOP votes for infrastructure.

Impact of Inflation by Household Income — Penn Wharton Budget Model

Inflation is a tax on everyone.

According to Penn Wharton economists, households will spend $3500 more in 2021 on goods and services than in prior years.

https://budgetmodel.wharton.upenn.edu/issues/2021/12/15/consumption-under-inflation-costs

We estimate that inflation in 2021 will require the average U.S. household to spend around $3,500 more in 2021 to achieve the same level of consumption of goods and services as in recent previous years (2019 or 2020). Moreover, we estimate that lower-income households spend more of their budget on g
