Infrastructure could be the next big focus, if an influx of children and teens at the U.S. southern border doesn't force action on immigration legislation. But without filibuster reform, the chance of passing legislation on racial justice or voting rights are low.

so quickly to health care that he never spent a whole lot of time telling Americans exactly what kind of help they got from their government. He also structured it so that the stimulus payments would be dribbled out in people's paychecks, as opposed to sending them individual checks. And I think, short of giving every eligible American a gigantic Publishers clearinghouse size check, the Biden administration is going to do everything in its power. So people know that they got help. I can't imagine what it would look like to see that big check coming in from the U. S. Postal Service. But I think the other thing that's worth remembering and we know this from the experience of the Obama stimulus to is that the rollout is also so important, and it makes up so much of how people will think about this. That's right, like, are the vaccinators actually going to show up? Are people going to get vaccinated? Our school is going to be able to open thanks to the extra money they're getting for, you know, building plexiglass barriers and things like that. And that is something that Ron Klain has a lot of experience with because he and Joe Biden were in charge of executing implementing the Obama stimulus. I was pretty amazed by the fact that so many people, just friends or people I know through social media have already been posting that there. $1400 checks have cleared, and I think that's a good sign for the administration. If things are going to move that smoothly with this rescue package that they don't get caught up in stories about delayed checks or rollout problems, those are good things because it increases the idea that the public will look at this bill as something that was well, run, well done and is helping them. You know, when we covered the Biden campaign, one thing that we heard him and Kamala Harris talk about constantly is all of these big issues that if they were elected, they were going to take on on behalf of the American people. I'm thinking of things like infrastructure
