“You know, I think this is going to be a popular speech with the American public,” Wallace said. “He offered a lot of stuff. $4 trillion will buy a lot of stuff, from millions of jobs to child care to community health centers, all kinds of stuff, community colleges.”
The initiatives Biden proposed would mean a massive increase in government involvement and spending. However, Wallace said, with the speech, the Biden administration is betting that a post-pandemic American public has become less wary of the role of government.
“I think they've made a calculation that after COVID-19, people have come to have a different feeling about government,” Wallace explained. “They now feel more trusting and more the 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 is here, and they’re here to help you.”
However, Wallace also couched his praise, saying that Biden’s speech will win him middle- and lower-income fans mainly because the president said they will not be taxed to pay for them.
