He will tout the $ 1.9 trillion COVID bill he signed – of which only 9% goes to actual COVID 安心. He will also trumpet his $ 2 trillion infrastructure plan that would do very little to improve America’s infrastructure. And it’s been reported that he’ll propose an “American Families Plan” that is likely to cost over a trillion dollars, as well as a huge tax increase that would take more out of the pockets of hardworking Americans in a struggling economy.
実際には, let me save you an hour of your time this evening and sum up バイデン大統領’s speech in three words: boring, but radical.
Wrapped up in stately, bureaucratic and polite prose will be proposals that would take away more of Americans’ hard-earned money, increase the national debt, and increase the dependence of millions of Americans on the federal government while destroying jobs.
What Biden won’t tell is the truth about the effect his policies are already having on Americans. So allow me to give you the real state of the union.
In his first week in office, Biden made radical changes to U.S. policy that have had ripple effects all over the United States and beyond. 一番, he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and gave 11,000 Americans – including 8,000 union workers – a pink slip during a pandemic that has decimated the economy. Stopping the Keystone XL pipeline, in the words of one laid-off pipeline worker, だった “a pretty good gut punch.”
ナンバー2, Biden stopped construction of the border wall, reinstated the failed catch and release policy, and ended the very successful Remain in Mexico policy that President Trump negotiated with the government of Mexico. The Remain in Mexico policy established that immigrants from Central America who had crossed illegally through Mexico would stay in Mexico while their asylum cases were adjudicated in the United States. That agreement was a great victory, and it resulted in a massive drop in illegal immigration – so much so that in 2020 the United States experienced the lowest level of illegal immigration in 45 年. 今, because of Joe Biden’s policies, we have the highest rate of illegal immigration in 20 年.
