Well, was it really Joe Biden’s speech? He was pushing Bernie’s platform. You know, the most progressive (socialist) administration in history. But I will start with the end first, which is where Democrats always start.
Interesting that the first place Biden went after he delivered it was to see Bernice Sanders.
But if Biden’s goal was to make Bernie look good, he sure did. Joe told us about all these big spending ideas with big price tags. Then he says we will pay for it by making the rich pay their fair share. (as if they don’t.)
So to seal the deal, Obiden repeated that no one making less than 400k per year would see an increase in their taxes. Whether that is families or individuals is not clear.
Now remember Bernie debating Hillary in 2016 came right out and said the middle class would see their taxes go up substantially — average +6000 more than their current taxes were then. And even lower income people too. But he said look at all the benefits they would get in return. So it would be worth it. That was Bernie’s deal.
But Biden did not make that pitch.
Delaware Joe either did not get that memo or forgot that part of the Bernie formula. Of course their taxes will have to be raised, too. Biden is just plain lying. At least Sanders admitted it when confronted about it. (that is common knowledge)
In reality, this wasn’t really a State of the Union or Joint Session Speech. It was a straight out solicitation to buy votes. Only it was not peppered with some flowery rhetoric like Democrats typically do. He just went directly out on the street corner to proposition them.
He would not talk about what he is really doing or the platform for it.
He claimed America is back…. to the systemically racist country we always were. Then he promises to build back better. Not a chicken but a racist in every pot.
Create a crisis on the border of historic proportions. Then ignore it completely as a non-issue. Then use it to blackmail the country for an amnesty plan.
Attack and run a court-packing scheme on the Supreme Court. Well, even worse than Obama standing up there attacking SCOTUS in his speech.
Calling half the country racists was classic, claiming they are worse than any present foreign threat. Demonize anyone who did not vote for him.
Killing good paying jobs with the stroke of a pen the first day. Killing jobs, jobs, jobs!
Canceling out political enemies or opposition to himself.
Turn the country into a seething mobocracy and then rant about democracy.
Enact gun control any way possible.
Hike taxes under the guise of the rich paying their fair share.
Take credit for the gains Trump built and vaccines he expedited. Now it is back to the business of crooked politics as usual. Swamp rules will be in force.
But the vote-buying was uniquely bold and undeniable. He made clear his sole intention is to spend lots of money as the incentive for his purchase. He’s only 100 days in; can he carry on this purchase scheme for 4 years? What does he do when he runs out of money? The gig is up because that is all he knows how to do.
Interesting how he claims no rights are absolute. Then he claimed he is not going against the Constitution but only being reasonable. Now we know his definition of “reasonable.” That becomes the new code word for unconstitutional. Free speech gets the same.
He replaced Russian collaboration on every corner with White Supremacist threats everywhere across America. The citizens are now public enemy number one.
But what we really need is redress from Biden and the socialist Left.
