Biden is unbelievable

President Biden said that the Democrats’ agenda in the spending bills that are currently under debate and negotiation will pay for itself. That is unbelievable. If the Democrats’ agenda would pay for itself, then passing the bills and implementing the agenda wouldn’t depend on raising the debt limit. Let me be clear. The Democrats in Congress, and President Biden are saying that they have to borrow more money in order to implement programs that pay for themselves. How gullible do you have to be to believe that?

Social reform programs have rarely paid for themselves. Social Security is regularly on the brink of failure. Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society has added billions, if not trillions of dollars to the national debt. If Democrats in aggregate truly had objections over how much the United States spends on the military, as many of them have regularly stated, why are there no Democrats outraged that President Biden abandoned $20 billion worth or more of military equipment in Afghanistan?

How can the American people trust a president and other government officers who encourage companies to coerce their U.S. citizen employees to receive vaccine injections at the threat of losing their jobs, and yet encourage, and facilitate, hundreds of thousands of unvaccinated migrants to illegally enter and be dispersed throughout the country?

These inconsistencies, and failures of President Biden and past Democratic Party agendas inform us that this administration doesn’t have the ability to fulfill its vision, and its agenda should never be implemented.
