Assessing the Biden Agenda: What will the next 100 days bring?

WED, APR 28, 2021 (1:20:07)

The 100-day mark is an important yardstick for assessing a modern President’s performance. It has traditionally been the “honeymoon” period, providing a window of opportunity for new administrations to move campaign promises from rhetoric to reality. Although most Americans can’t seem to agree on much these days, we can probably agree that these are atypical times, and that makes Biden’s “honeymoon” a complex one.

The Biden-Harris administration faces numerous historic challenges at home and abroad, all while attempting to move its agenda forward.

Join Dr. Esther Choo, a health policy researcher; Joel Clement, Senior Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs; Julie Kashen, director for women’s economic justice at The Century Foundation; and Jonathan Gruber, professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The panel discusses where the Biden administration has and has not made headway and what comes next. POLITICO White House correspondent Eugene Daniels moderates the discussion.
