OPINION: Biden a transformational president

Democrats passed the American Recovery Act without a single Republican vote. The party that spent the past four years giving tax cuts to the rich and running up unprecedented deficits is suddenly concerned about the debt and deficit again. It was predictable as daylight savings time.
