President Biden will finally hold his first formal press conference in months on Wednesday afternoon, and it comes at a tipping point of his presidency, just one year since taking office.

Or how about, sir, you’ve claimed that adding trillions in new spending via Build Back Better would decrease inflation and the deficit. Can you explain specifically from an economic perspective how that would work?

Or, sir, why is it harder to vote in your home state of Delaware — where you served as a senator for decades — than in the state of Georgia?
