“President Joe Biden journeyed from the White House to the Capitol building on October 1, 2021. There he admonished and pressured Democratic Party Senators and Congressmen to come together and pass both his $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and his $3.5 trillion Build Back Better Act …. When asked by a reporter about the possibility of the bill passing via a razor thin Democratic majority in both houses of Congress, a majority further divided over the size and content of the bill, Biden replied, ‘It doesn’t matter whether it’s six minutes, six days, or six weeks — we’re going to get it done.’ Reading these words in the printed press, the reader could easily get the impression that here was a calm, collected, and experienced politician taking things all in stride …. But if someone caught this brief exchange between the President and a reporter on the television news, things would have seemed much different.” (10/08/21)
