Over A Month In And Biden Is Proving Two Things.
The Dems have high hopes for the Biden Administration. They hold the majority in both Houses, with the tie-breaking vote of Kamala Harris. But aside from Biden's excessive use of executive actions, he hasn't accomplished much. But Dems should have known better, Biden struggles to string together a sentence and Dems thought things would go well?
"Six weeks into the Biden administration, the bad news is that Joe Biden and his team are way farther to the left than the candidate promised on the campaign trail in 2020. But this is somewhat offset by the fact that he and his team are much less competent than promised."
"Biden’s impending signature legislative accomplishment — a massive COVID-relief package — is likely to come to fruition, but in a way that leaves few factions all that satisfied. Ten Senate Republicans came to Biden with a smaller bill that would have gotten significant bipartisan support, but the president and his team turned them down. It’s now doubtful that the bill that ultimately passes will get any Republican support in either chamber. The relief bill will need to be passed through reconciliation, requiring just 50 votes. But raising the minimum wage nationally to $15 per hour can’t be included in a budget bill passed through reconciliation, and the final version is likely to include other compromises as well. West Virginia senator Joe Manchin is pushing to reduce the $350 million in aid to state and local governments — and as we’ve seen, in a 50–50 Senate, what Manchin wants, Manchin usually gets."
"But keep in mind, this relief bill was supposed to be the easy and bipartisan part of the Biden agenda. On paper, everybody in Congress wants to do something to help the economy, and almost everybody on Capitol Hill likes spending money. If it’s proving slow and difficult to pass even a watered-down version of Democrats’ original vision for this package, just imagine what, say, immigration reform will look like."
"But a fairer question, more than 40 days into Biden’s administration, is whether Biden and his team are moving fast enough to fill out all of those lesser-known administration positions. For example, Biden hasn’t nominated a director of the Food and Drug Administration yet, which seems a little odd, considering how central the FDA is to the approval of vaccines and treatments for COVID-19 right now and in the coming year."
It's incredible that Dems somehow thought that Biden was going to be able to pull off their every whim. He needs his wife to interpret and clarify his interviews because his dementia is clearly getting worse. He is basically just a political pawn. So of course his policies are leaning more to the left. I doubt he even has much say in what he is doing anymore. The concerning thing is that he talks to world leaders. His jumbled-up word salads are making the United States look feeble. Our president is supposed to represent the best of America and Biden just doesn't measure up.
