Does Joe Biden have a national mandate?

People say a president can only get one or perhaps two major policy changes enacted.   For Obama, that was fixing healthcare.

Dealing with COVID-19 is obviously Biden’s immediate and # 1 priority.  But what is his number two policy priority?

    I am just concerned that at every turn Donald Trump seems to want to kill Americans.

    Also Biden is running around meeting with scientists to try to save American lives and help our economy.  Trump team 4 years ago was running around meeting  with Russians to try to help Russia.  lol

    Without giving my opinion or unnecessary rhetoric I will answer your question.

    Joe Biden was asked what are at the top of his first-term agenda. What he said is in quotes below;  

    “Get control of coronavirus/our health. Without that, nothing else is going to work very well, number one,” he said. “Number two: invest in the community, in real infrastructure.” 

    To continue, the fact is lawmakers from both parties have long talked about the importance of an infrastructure deal, but an actual bipartisan consensus has always been out of reach. The House passed a $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill back in July, aimed at boosting transportation spending and reducing pollution, among other provisions. But the measure was never taken up in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who at the time called it “pointless political theater.” So as you would expect it went nowhere. We will have to wait and see. For now President Trump is still our president, so here's hoping he addresses these important issues and puts these two top priorities in motion.

    (BEWARE of a lot of obvious, stab you in the eye, made up stories to support political drama, none of which are true).

    Obama fixed healthcare, or lined his pockets with insurance co. contributions? That's a nice word for it.

    Covid 19 is done, was never more dangerous than the common flu.  But you'll never see the truth if you rely on the blue media.

    Obama tried to get more done if the senate didn't block him at every turn he would have accomplished more. I hope Biden  will have more cooperation there than Obama faced.  there is so much Biden has to  fix due to Trump running the country into the ground including economic growth.  Trust Biden, he has 40 years of experience behind him.  I am so glad Trump finally got FIRED.  I hope America can find peace and come together and stop the division that Trump's governance caused//  In four years I have never heard Trump say anything nice about anyone, especially minority groups, he loved the proud boys, the nazi's the white supremacy groups, what an awful man/  Let's not dwell on the past four but look forward to the future and 8 years of stability and positive growth.  This will not happen overnight but it will be nice to have unification of the nation instead of divisiveness all the time.  Peace.

    He is going to stop Coronavirus.  He is going to make Obamacare better and change it to Bidencare.  Watch - he will do nothing.
