KNX In Depth's Charles Feldman and Rob Archer discuss if President Biden got a big political win after Congress passed the debt ceiling legislation. Tony Smith is a political science and law professor at UC Irvine. “What we’ve got is actually government functioning despite the sort of drama queen lead-up to ‘are we going to default?’ Biden ran and said he’s going to be a bipartisan president. His biggest bills, including this one, have been bipartisan. But if you want to chalk up a win, look and see who voted for it – and you’ll see more Democrats voted for the bill in both the House and the Senate than Republicans,” says Smith.
