Q    How are you feeling, Mr. President?  How are you feeling?  Come over.
Q    How are you feeling? 
THE PRESIDENT:  Feeling great.  Tested negative again today.  Been testing every day.  All good.  All is good.
Q    To what extent do you expect the inflation bill to help Democrats during the midterms once it passes, Mr. President?
THE PRESIDENT:  Will I expect it to help?  Yes, I do.  It’s going to immediately help.  For example, no senior will have any — on Medicare — will have med- — bills of more than $2,000 for drugs, no matter what the costs are.  That’s a big deal.  It changes people’s lives.  There’s a whole range of things that are really game-changing for ordinary folks.
Now, some of it is not going to kick in for a little bit, but it’s all good.  It’s really going to lower the daily — when you sit down at that kitchen table at the end of the month, you’re going to be able to pay a whole hell of a lot more bills because you’re paying less in medical bills.

Q    Do you think it was a wise move of the Speaker to go to Taiwan — looking at it now?
THE PRESIDENT:  That was her decision.      
Thank you.
