Joe Biden was hoping to start off the year on a high note.
Instead everything went completely wrong.
This big milestone for Joe Biden ended with disaster for Democrats.
Joe Biden has just completed his first year as president and things couldn’t be worse.
The past week has seen major parts of Biden’s agenda crumble.
The Supreme Court has struck down his vaccinemandate for businesses, he can’t get bills through Congress and his approval rating has gone down even lower than it was before.
When Biden entered office a year ago his approval was at 54% but he dropped more than 20 percentage points and now a Quinnipiac poll put Biden’s approval rating at just 33% on Wednesday.
With Biden being so unpopular it’s much harder to get members of Congress to vote for his bills. He had hoped to get his Biden’s Build Back Better (BBB) and elections agenda through before the midterms but Democratic Sens. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Joe Manchin of West Virginiaand Democratic Sens. KyrstenSinema of Arizona and Joe Manchin of West Virginia have made that impossible since the Democrats have such a slim majority.
President Joe Biden ran into another problem because he promised to end Covid and he can’t even pretend that he did anything useful.
The SCOTUS struck down Biden’s attempt to require companies with more than 100 employees to either make their workers get a vaccine or test weekly but the 6-3 majority struck it down.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki attempted to explain where Biden had lost his way at briefing on Thursday.
“Frankly, things just seem like they’re going pretty poorly right now for the White House,” a reporter began. “Build Back Better is being blocked, voting rights is being blocked, diplomatic talks with Russia don’t seem to have brought us back from the brink of war, inflation is at a 40-year high, the virus is setting records for infection. So, as we kind of hit this one-year period where everything seems like it’s in pretty rough shape … at what point do you take stock and say that things need to change internally?”
Psaki had to try and claim that Biden should be praised for the high number of vaccinations, even though the vaccines were developed under Trump and blamed Congress for not passing Biden’s bills.
“When you have a small margin and threshold in the Senate, it’s very difficult to get things done and to get legislation passed,” she said. “The fact that the president, under his leadership, got the American Rescue Plan passed, a bipartisan infrastructure bill with 19 [Republican] votes in the Senate…that’s a path forward for us.”
“So the sense is things are going well. There’s no need for change right now?” the reporter pressed.
“I think that having worked in a White House before, you do hard things in White Houses. You have every challenge laid at your feet, whether it’s global or domestically. We could certainly propose legislation to see if people support bunny rabbits and ice cream, but that wouldn’t be very rewarding to the American people,” Psaki responded.
