Biden’s Speech ‘Popular’– People ‘Now Feel More Trusting’ of Government
Chris Wallace: “I think this is going to be a popular speech with the American public. He offered a lot of stuff. Four trillion will buy a lot of stuff from millions of jobs to child care to community health centers, all kinds of stuff, community colleges.
And the other thing that’s pretty popular is he said: You’re not going to have to pay for it. Big corporations are going to pay for it. People making more than $400,000 are going to pay for it, but the vast majority of people watching tonight aren’t. So, offering a lot of stuff and saying you aren’t going to have to pay for it is pretty popular.”
He added, “I think they’ve made a calculation that after COVID, that people have come to have a different feeling about government — that they now feel more trusting and more in need of government. And so, where this might have turned a lot of people off —and probably still will— they believe the majority of people are going to say: the government’s here, and they’re here to help.”
