Biden pitches his ambitious investment and tax plans as he recasts role of government

Source: Washington Post

President Biden on Wednesday pitched his ambitious, trillion-dollar-plus investment and tax plans as he recast the role of government in American lives. He promoted his agenda in a prime-time address to the nation and a slimmed-down joint session of Congress as the pandemic imposed health restrictions in the House chamber with a smaller number of lawmakers.

In the Republican response to the president’s speech, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) credited the Trump administration and the GOP for coronavirus vaccines and the economic rebound, insisting that Biden is reaping the benefits. “This administration inherited a tide that had already turned,” Scott said.

Biden called on members of Congress to take action on immigration, which he said has long been too politically divisive an issue.

1. What a load of BS!

"This administration inherited a tide that had already turned,” Scott said.

We were drowning since we were left up a river in a boat with no paddles and a huge hole in the bottom. That is what we inherited!

2. The Post's "4 Takeaways" from Biden's speech

were just plan weird. While not overtly negative, the author seemed to come from a very “republican” point of view that was more concerned about spending and taxes than the good of the country.

That example demonstrates the inherent bias of at least one reporter covering Biden.
