Watch again: Biden signs $430 billion Inflation Reduction bill

The Independent published this video item, entitled “Watch again: Biden signs $430 billion Inflation Reduction bill” – below is their description.

After nearly 18 months of ups and downs, fits and starts, and premature reports of the death of his domestic policy agenda, US president Joe Biden put pen to paper and signed into law the $739bn Inflation Reduction Act, capping a summer of legislative productivity that has resuscitated his presidency and left Democrats energised heading into the November midterm elections.

The hastily-arranged signing ceremony came just days after the House of Representatives approved the legislation in a party-line vote last week.

The president called the legislation “one of the most significant laws in our history”.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
