Recently, Nancy Pelosi whined that the media wasn’t doing a good enough job “selling” the Biden Administration’s “Build Back Better” agenda.
In other words, Pelosi merely assumed that the media is there to do her beck and call, which apparently includes promoting completely unreasonable and irresponsible government spending.
When CBS News’s Nikole Killion asked Pelosi how the Democrat Party plans to “sell” its massive, multitrillion dollar spending package to the public, Pelosi’s response was not terribly inspiring.
“Well I think you all could do a better job of selling it, to be very frank with you … Every time I come here, I go through the list … It is hard to break through when you have such a comprehensive package.”
In other words, Pelosi doesn’t believe that she should have to “sell” the agenda at all, as the media should simply do it for her.
However, Pelosi may want to consider reevaluating that approach in light of the fact that Tesla CEO, has decided to weigh in on the “Build Back Agenda,” and his views have been subsequently promoted across multiple media platforms.
Needless to say, Musk, who has long tussled with California regulators over draconian lockdowns, was not exactly the biggest advocate of the “Build Back Better” agenda.
In fact, Musk’s recommendation was fairly short, sweet, and straight to the point.

Musk continued his diatribe against governmental spending by underscoring how corrupt he perceives the government and its institutions, especially those that like to rob Americans of the fruits of their extensive efforts.
“It does not make sense to take the job of capital allocation away from people who have demonstrated great skill in capital allocation, and give it to an entity that has demonstrated very poor skill in capital allocation, which is the government … Government is simply the biggest corporation, with the monopoly on violence.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Absolutely, spot on, correct.
Principles that businessmen like Musk and Trump understand, but career politicians like Sanders and Biden don’t. After all, governmental types only know how to exploit the efforts of othes via oppressive taxes and wealth redistribution, but they haven’t the faintest clue how to create any of that wealth, never mind the innovation that underpins it, themselves.
So, the government decides to punish businesspeople instead, failing to recognize that it is slowly choking the source of its own revenue via high taxes in the long run.
Moreover, Musk also recognizes what plenty of lefties apparently don’t: The Biden administration is not exactly the biggest cheerleader in the world for American achievements, which was rather obvious when the White House didn’t bother to acknowledge a historic SpaceX flight.
Not only was this flight the embodiment of another major American achievement, but it also raised significant funding for St. Jude’s Hospital, which is well-known for providing vital medical services to critically ill children.
One of Musk’s followers on Twitter asked Musk about this issue directly, given how brazen the White House’s dismissal of the SpaceX victory was.
“The President of the United States has refused to even acknowledge the 4 newest American astronauts who helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for St. Jude. What’s your theory on why that is?” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Now, these questions are the types of questions that reporters should be asking Biden, rather than what his ice cream preference happens to be on a particular day of the week.
Musk’s reply was rather hilarious as well.

In light of what Biden tends to do when he is awake, however, perhaps it’s best that he remains asleep whenever possible …
