One month ago, the heart of President Joe Biden 's domestic agenda was on life support, and his job approval rating had dropped to a new low. Biden and his party appeared headed for a shellacking in the midterm elections. Even Democratic voters seemed ready to move on from the president, openly questioning whether he should seek a second term. But seemingly overnight, in an unexpected turn of events, Biden has regained some momentum following what has been the most productive period of his presidency.

Gary Peters (D-MI) that John James wants to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. “This isn’t hyperbole.
