Do you think Biden could actually do this?
During a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) discussed the latest economic numbers and said that 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden is “going to match the moment where we need our own FDR moment” on a number of important if he wins the election and is put in charge.
According to Breitbart, Markey stated, “Well, my feeling is this, that we’re about to have our own FDR moment. … I think Joe Biden’s going to match the moment where we need our own FDR moment in January of 2021. We need to think big about health care, Medicare for all, big about a Green New Deal to change the entire energy infrastructure in our country, big about paid child leave, about paid sick leave, big about guaranteeing that we have health care for everyone in our society and that we provide protection for the most vulnerable that we deal with this issue of racism that’s been uncovered as part of the pandemic and George Floyd’s death. So, we need a president who matches the moment.”
