To find key laws that were more popular than the Biden Incentive, turn to the 1993 Brady Bill, 1994 Prohibition of Assault Weapons, and 1990 Air Pollution Act amendments.
The Biden incentive is a historical law. No such extensive economic incentive bill as this has been proposed in recent U.S. history, but the nation has not been exposed to a pandemic like the coronavirus in more than a century.
The crisis the country is facing is even more difficult than the Great Recession, and the Republican opposition to the stimulus bill puts it on the wrong side of history. It’s a vote Republicans will be reminded of during the 2022 election and beyond.
