In other news, the FDA has fully approved Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine and now Pfizer is seeking full approval for a booster shot. I will personally be taking Pfizer's booster when it's available and I encourage everyone else to get one at some point in the future.

Meanwhile, Senate Democrats -- citing their own study on the matter -- says passing the infrastructure and reconciliation bills will cut greenhouse gas emissions by 46 percent by 2030.

Finally, the Biden administration canceled student debt for 320,000 disabled borrowers.

The debt forgiveness, which will go to borrowers with a total and permanent disability, will be automatically granted using data already available to the Social Security Administration. People should start seeing the relief in September.

The Education Department said it also plans to stop asking these borrowers to continue sharing earnings data after they receive the relief.

So, this is turning out to be a very slow week indeed. I'm here every day, but there's just not a whole lot going on right now. September will undoubtedly be more eventful as there's a looming government shutdown on the horizon and the potential passage of trillions in new spending.
