Joe Biden is in big trouble. He is hellbent on spending as much of your money as possible. But with Republicans in charge of the House, he can’t get anything done. His only hope is to negotiate with men like Speaker Kevin McCarthy. But Biden has not once worked with Republicans since taking office.
Worse yet, the White House continues to spread lies against the Republican Party. One of the biggest lies Biden has spread is one that has been disproven again and again. In fact, McCarthy himself said recently that he wants to do the very opposite of what Democrats accuse Republicans of doing. Did that impress Biden? Is he now willing to work with the GOP?
Of course, not.
From The Hill:
McCarthy said in an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation” earlier Sunday that he wants to take cuts to Medicare and Social Security off the table in talks with Democrats over the debt ceiling…
The White House rebuked the Speaker’s claim, saying on Sunday that Republicans have wanted to cut earned benefits for years.
Frequently, in recent months, Biden has spread the claim that Republicans want to cut Social Security and Medicare. He has no proof of this since under Donald Trump, benefits for those programs expanded.
On top of that, McCarthy promised that–while he plans to cut spending–Social Security and Medicare were “off the table.” That should come as a relief to Joe Biden, right? He was worried Republicans wanted to cut these programs.
Except, the White House spokesman literally attacked McCarthy instead of extending an olive branch. Really? McCarthy just said he wasn’t going to cut SS or Medicare. Yet Biden’s dog only spewed the same lies about Republican plans.
Hmm… it’s almost as if, Biden doesn’t want to work with Republicans! If Biden can refuse to negotiate, he can blame the debt ceiling crisis on the GOP. This administration is so pathetically partisan, it can’t even imagine negotiating with McCarthy.
Biden claims Republicans want to cut Social Security and Medicare by “privatizing” them. Not sure how they’d do that, since these programs are funded with tax dollars. Besides that, there are already numerous private companies that manage the Social Security benefits and Medicare payments of millions of senior citizens.
So, what is Biden really saying? Even after McCarthy pledged not to touch these benefits, Biden keeps attacking.
This isn’t what real leaders do. This is what a partisan hack who is scared of losing in 2024 does. Meanwhile, Americans’ well-being is at stake.
- Kevin McCarthy vowed to protect Social Security and Medicare, despite making other cuts.
- Joe Biden attacked in response, claiming Republicans want to cut SS and Medicare spending.
- Biden has refused to negotiate with Republicans, even though the government has hit the debt ceiling.
