The Government Bureaucrat You Never Heard of Who Is Fixing the Climate, the Supply Chain, and the Border
The latest issue of the Washington Monthly magazine covers how “Bidenomics really is a BFD.”
And Paul Glastris compares Biden to his predecessor Harry Truman, as both fused economic philosophy with diplomacy to “build a global order … while building a broad middle class.”

One of those people is Robin Carnahan, who leads the General Services Administration.
You might now be asking yourself: Who is Robin Carnahan and what is the General Services Administration? Fortunately, I have answers.
I recently interviewed Administrator Carnahan about the work she is doing to implement Biden’s signature programs: the Inflation Reduction Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also known as the bipartisan infrastructure law.

And for a post-Halloween treat, also featured on the Washington Monthly website is a satirical judicial opinion penned by Garrett Epps: Saving the World May Be Fashionable, But We Are a Nation of Laws, Federal Judge Explains.
Epps envisions a future court case in which federal government action to stop an asteroid from obliterating the Earth is deemed unconstitutional. You might just learn something about the Major Questions Doctrine. Click here for the full story.
