Biden Hits Washington Reality in Dash for Post-Trump Reset

Joe Biden’s presidency began at a choreographed sprint, with a series of executive actions to erase Donald Trump’s legacy and reset the nation’s course. But as his first full week in office came to a close, the new president was discovering the bounds of his power.

His administration’s efforts to bolster vaccine production saw the same hurdles that plagued the Trump administration - bottlenecks both at factories and in clinics -- and Biden’s advisers had to wash up after the president said any American would be ready to get inoculated by the spring.

A coming vaccine from Johnson & Johnson holds promise to expand supply, helping Biden more easily reach his goal of 100 million shots in his first 100 days.

He’s meanwhile encountering familiar roadblocks in Congress, where just four of his cabinet nominees are confirmed 12 days into his presidency, and he’s found no traction among congressional Republicans for an additional big stimulus bill.

The White House has denied reports it’s willing to interrupt the $1.9 trillion proposal apart during a bid to secure Republican votes, leading Democratic leaders within the House and Senate to work out what they will pass with budget tricks and 50 votes.

Ten GOP senators wrote to Biden on Sunday with an alternate proposal for a slimmed-down stimulus bill. The White House says it'll review the offer. A smaller plan that passed with bipartisan support would go away Democrats liberal to pursue more contentious elements employing a partisan budget tool.

The Senate is distracted by Trump’s coming impeachment trial, while within the House, Democrats now regard many Republicans as something worse than mere political opponents, after the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot by the previous president’s supporters.
