President Joe Biden marked his first 100 days in office last week by laying out a massive spending plan, as well as massive tax increases that would only partially cover the costs while inflicting significant damage to the economy. His plan would also harm those the president purports to help: families.
In his first address to Congress last Wednesday, Biden further distanced himself from his campaign promises of bringing the country together. By adding on trillions of new spending and slapping businesses and successful Americans with hefty taxes, the president is signaling he is more concerned about appeasing progressives in his party than in finding consensus on moving the country past the pandemic. Even moderate Democrats have expressed hesitancy.
