Promising voters the moon is the easy part. But delivering on that promise? That’s a whole other ballgame.
When a DC insider hand-picks his economic advisors, you might assume they would be more or less on the same page in terms of the agenda. But we’re already seeing a rift between the fantasy Joe has been promising, and the reality the government needs to work within.
It’s all well and good to bust out your pen and sign some paperwork, but taking an agenda from fantasy to reality takes a little more work than he seems to think.
Two of Biden’s top White House economic advisers, Council of Economic Advisors member Heather Boushey and National Economic Council deputy director David Kamin, have expressed reservations to Biden about sending another round of direct stimulus checks to taxpayers, three people familiar with the conversations told Bloomberg News on Monday.
Boushey and Kamin are reportedly concerned that both the total amount of each check — which Biden’s American Rescue Plan currently starts at $1,400 for taxpayers making less than $75,000 per year — and the rate at which payments phase out entirely could preclude Congress from appropriating additional funds for stimulus items like expanded unemployment insurance and additional aid for states.
Bloomberg’s report comes the same day that Biden is set to host a group of 10 Republican senators at the White House to discuss their new stimulus proposal, which, at $600 billion in total, is less than one-third the size of Biden’s current plan. –DailyCaller
For a guy who so freely throws around emotionally loaded terms like ‘The Big Lie’, at least the previous administration made promises it could actually implement and keep.
Joe didn’t even bother to find out whether the things he promised were even workable. After all, who’s going to call him out for it? CNN? The New York Times? WaPo?
Those clowns worked their asses off to get him into the White House. Why would they undercut their own work now?
And, WaPo in particular will be hard at work generating the darkness Democrats require for Democracy to well and truly die. Judging by their behavior, that must be what the slogan means.
