Former Obama Adviser Gives Democrats a Sobering Warning


As President Joe Biden celebrated his 100th day in office on Thursday, political analysts across the spectrum took the opportunity to weigh in on his administration’s achievements. As you would imagine, the view from the right was pretty dismal. You may be surprised to hear, however, that not all liberals are giving the president high marks. Former Obama economic adviser Steven Rattner is concerned — particularly with the massive size and scope of the administration’s $6 trillion of new spending bills. Rattner appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday to say that, “the potential for mistakes, failure of execution here is high. … And if it fails … I think it will set back the cause of progressivism for several more decades.” “Sure, I worry about inflation. Sure, I worry about the deficit and the debt. But I also worry about the execution job here,” Rattner explained. “This is a massive execution job. The last plan, the jobs plan alone, had 76 separate initiatives in it. All have to be created and executed.”
