Democrats have every right to be pleased that they recently passed another big spending bill, but a lot of them are getting carried away.

Longtime Democratic consultant Robert Shrum celebrated the momentum behind the passage of the so-called Inflation Reduction Act by tweeting, "Biden is the most legislatively successful President since LBJ.”

Some credulous journalists are saying the same thing. And Republicans have no incentive to correct the record: So be it if voters who lean their way see President Joe Biden as a progressive juggernaut.
