President Joe Biden’s plans are ambitious. I know this because every headline Thursday morning after Biden gave his first speech to a joint session of Congress said so.
“Biden Just Gave the Most Ideologically Ambitious Speech of Any Democratic President in Generations,” Politico’s wordy headline screamed. “Biden bets big,” Axios said more succinctly. “Big Government Is Back,” said the NPR headline. The Washington Post described Biden’s “sweeping agenda” and the New York Times called it a “risky gamble.”
