Joe Biden may be Democrat Ronald Reagan

After steam-rolling Republicans and passing a $ 1.9 trillion COVID relief package on a party-line basis, Biden now demands $ 2.3 trillion in infrastructure spending and raises corporate taxes to pay for it. I am proposing. What is called infrastructure spending is more like “human infrastructure” than roads and bridges. We are still discussing a huge amount of money. This is just the first half of a two-part plan. But it’s not just big spending that’s worth noting. Notable is how Biden, once supposed to be a compromiser of centrists, wants to thwart the plan. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain told Politico’s Ryan Lizza on Thursday: “Finally, let me be clear, the president has been elected. To get the job done.” Where have I heard of it before? Yes Yes. It was in early February that 10 Republicans met Biden in the Oval Office to discuss the COVID bailout package. They were barely out of the open before White House spokesman Jen Psaki issued a statement very similar to Crane. In fact, I interpreted her words as follows: “… Biden wants bipartisan support, but not bipartisan compromises (at least not so much).” Biden’s revolution did what Obama and Clinton did. My reading at that moment turned out to be accurate, and I think it showed the strategy of the Biden administration. Josh Kraushaar of the National Journal explains that strategy as promised: It is not unity, but the power politics preferred by non-banned businesses. [Rahm] Emmanuel, or even Mitch McConnell, would be grateful. Biden isn’t as ruthless as Ram, nor moral and computational as Mitch, which actually makes him more effective. In baseball, a pitcher whose slow delivery goes against his speed is considered “sneaky fast.” The political version may be Joe Biden, who turned out to be “sneaky speed” and “sneaky party”. In fact, Biden’s ability to tell people to go to hell (in a way that he looks forward to traveling) may be his secret power, but during his short tenure as president, he was a man on a mission. With a grand desire to become a transformative president. The backlash could regret not persuading Republican politicians. Alternatively, he could be unimaginably successful, and his legacy dramatically changed the size and scope of government in ways never seen since such things as the FDR’s New Deal and the LBJ’s Great Society. It may have been. The latter is a particularly interesting comparison, as the “Senate Master” inherited his liberal agenda from a younger, more charismatic Democratic president. But what about our people who really don’t want to radically change the country? Who is looking for us? Republicans aren’t doing a very good job on it. At the very least, I haven’t heard much of a compelling warning about the debt crisis, the dangers of inflation, or the potential for tax increases to reach consumers or even employees. Where are the concerns about Democrats buying votes with free money? And most importantly, why are Republicans so blaming the death of small government? If Biden is scoring, part of the story is focused on Republicans leaning on a windmill, “owning a library”, and fighting chimeras, so sleepy Joe makes a social contract. I didn’t notice that I was rewriting it. In 2008, Barack Obama said, “I think Ronald Reagan changed America’s trajectory in ways Richard Nixon didn’t and Bill Clinton didn’t.” The point is that you can be considered a successful two-term president (I think Clinton and Obama were in general) and can’t get close to making a lasting change. That is. From a progressive point of view, Clinton’s mistake was triangulation, which included adopting Republican language, such as declaring that “the era of big government is over.” Biden seems to have gone in another direction. Ronald Reagan was successful in both respects, winning the Cold War and taking office with the goal of regaining American optimism. However, the Reagan Revolution has also fundamentally reshaped the public consensus on the size and scope of government. “The long cycle of national government role and activity in domestic affairs, which began with the FDR’s New Deal, ended with Reagan’s New Deal,” wrote Richard P. Nathan of Princeton University. “President Reagan has brought a fundamental shift in US government domestic policy, both in federal spending and the content and purpose of its domestic programs.” If Byden turns out to be a liberal answer What happens? To Reagan? But he’s a terribly cunning Reagan, just pretending to be old and dodging as a trick, as Phil Hartman drew at Saturday Night Live. Oh yeah, unlike Reagan, his party controls both parliaments. What if Biden, often seen as a “transitional” caretaker who can withstand driving away Donald Trump, turns out to be a truly transformative president who brings new political consensus? Imagine the irony when Obama turns out to be John the Baptist of Jesus Christ in Joe Biden. As one politician says, this presidency can be a big deal! Find out more at The Daily Beast.
