The push of the progressive left agenda by the Biden Administration has a new fan. Hillary Clinton.
According to The Daily Wire:
Clinton was prompted by CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, who asked, “I want to ask you about Biden’s 100 days. And I want to you ask something very specific about it which is, he has outlined a much more ambitious role for the government than people thought Democrats could or had the courage to. Your husband famously said when he was president, the era of big government is over. James Carville, who ran his campaign, said what I realized now is when I die I want to come back as the bond market because everybody here is so worried about any spending that would upset the bond market. Was that all wrong then or is it that Biden is in a new age?
“I really think it’s a new age and in part because what had to happen in the ’90s did happen,” Clinton replied. “There was a lot of, you know, positive economic growth that was aided and abetted by government policy and huge amounts of advancement for people up and down the income scale, minorities and others. In the Obama administration, the biggest expansion of health care that could happen.”
“But it wasn’t until the pandemic that I think a truly working majority of Americans, crossing party lines as we’ve seen, because of the approval that Republicans and independent voters are giving Biden, suddenly understood in a clear way that, you know what, there’s lots of times when we need the government, and we’ve been exposed as lacking in the kind of investments and support that we, as Americans, should be providing each other with the government as our partner,” she continued.
Clinon enthused, “And I’m thrilled that President Biden is taking advantage of this moment to try to push the agenda as far as possible. I think both, you know, Presidents Obama and Clinton did, too, but they were more constrained given what the climate was politically during their administrations. So, yes, I think it builds on a lot of what did happen in prior Democratic administrations. But it also goes further. And it can go further because people understand, guess what, you know, we kind of were failed by our government for four years when we confronted one of the worst health care crises, economic crises that our country has seen.”
When asked about former President Bill Clinton’s Treasury secretary, Larry Summers saying Biden’s spending proposals are too much Clinton stated that she isn’t worried about it… just yet.
