The gap between Joe Biden’s promises and his actual policies is not only massive, but also dangerous.
As a candidate, Biden promised that he would make the lives of the American people better. Yet, almost 16 months into his term, polls show that Americans are poorer and more dissatisfied with the current direction of the United States.
Biden promised that he would restore the “soul” of the United States. Yet, he’s largely wounded America’s “soul” with crushing economic policies, warnings of food shortages, and other disasters that are on their way.
In the wake of all this, the president is being held accountable by Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), according to the Next News Network.
The Only Culprit For Americans’ Suffering
Scalise has pointed out that everyday Americans are the ones being hurt by the inflation crisis Biden created. Higher consumer prices and higher interest rates have the worst impacts on the middle class and working class, after all.
During an interview with Fox Business, the Republican congressman noted that in grocery stores alone, prices have skyrocketed to the tune of 20% to 30%. On top of this, Scalise also called out Biden for pushing for billions in new taxes on oil and gas companies.
Scalise warned that if these taxes on oil and gas companies pass, then the costs will get passed down to middle and working class Americans. The prices folks are paying today will pale in comparison to the prices to come if Biden gets his way.
Later, on Fox Business, Scalise stated that the president violated his promise not to raise taxes on folks bringing in under $400,000 per year. Inflation, in and of itself, is a tax increase and it has the worst effects on those who are least able to afford it.
The Only Way Out
Despite all the harm to come from Biden’s policies, he’s been very clear that he has no intentions of changing what he’s doing. The president will keep current problems going for as long as he possibly can; this is why the congressional elections in November are so critical.
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has already confirmed that if Republicans get back control of Congress, they’ll ensure Biden governs as a moderate as a condition of getting anything passed into law.
This president has already shown that he’ll run wild if Congress continues to be controlled by his party. Therefore, every American must vote red in November to save the country from reaching a point of utter destruction.
