Joe Biden’s first 100 days as President have been a total and complete disaster. Biden promised America that he would govern with bipartisanship, but in his first 100 days, Americans have seen anything but. Biden’s first 100 days have been full of radical proposals and Democrat power grabs, and Americans know it. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, just 36% of American voters view Biden’s first 100 days as a “success.” The plurality of Americans (44%) believe that Biden’s first 100 days have been a “failure.” The American people are right: Biden has failed the American people in his first 100 days in office.
On Biden’s first day in office, he began to completely overhaul America’s immigration system. Biden immediately ended the “remain in Mexico” policy established under President Trump. The policy required asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their American court hearings and was largely seen as successful in combatting illegal immigration. Biden also began to enact illegal policy on his very first day in office. On January 20, 2021, Biden announced a 100-day moratorium on the deportation of most illegal immigrants. The move, however, was blocked by a federal judge just days later. To quote U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, who ruled against the moratorium, “The Defendants do not cite, and the Court cannot find, other instances in which any government agency paused its essential duties and tasks for 100 days to reassess its priorities.”
Despite a federal judge blocking Biden’s radical proposal to halt deportations for 100 days, illegal immigrants clearly understood the message that Biden was sending to them by even proposing such a policy. This is why crossings at America’s southern border are set to hit a 20 year high, thanks to Biden and his disastrous radical policies.
Lastly, and perhaps most significantly, Biden has already proposed a massive immigration bill that would legalize at least 11 million illegal immigrants. The bill is expected to pass the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives and could actually gain traction in the Senate if Republicans are not sent a clear message from their constituents that they do not support the bill or its contents.
Joe Biden has spent much of his first 100 days radically changing America’s economy. On Biden’s first day in office, he revoked the permit held by Keystone XL for a massive 1,700-mile pipeline from Alberta, Canada, to Texas. The pipeline would have passed through the state of Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. The pipeline also would have created over $3.4 billion in American GDP growth, including millions of dollars in state and local tax revenue. As a result of the pipeline’s cancellation, America will not get the many economic benefits of the pipeline, and approximately 1,000 mostly unionized jobs have been eliminated.
Biden has also signed an executive order that ends a program that provides federal funding for industry apprenticeships. The program was created by President Trump back in 2017 and allowed companies and organizations to create apprenticeship programs that helped workers attain the skills needed to succeed in today’s economy without an expensive education at a college or university. The program had bipartisan support but was axed by Biden because he wants to see a government-controlled alternative.
Biden’s proposed tax increases are some of the most radical parts of his economic policy. For example, Biden has proposed legislation that would raise the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent. This would raise America’s corporate tax rate to a higher level than China, America’s primary economic competitor. Biden’s proposed corporate tax increase would also impact approximately 1 million small businesses that are organized as corporations.
Corporate taxes are not the only taxes that Biden wants to raise. Biden has also proposed raising the top income-tax rate to 39.6 percent from 37 percent, raising the tax rate paid on capital gains and dividends for those making over $1 million to 39.6 percent from 20 percent, and raising the death tax rate to 43.4 percent from 23.8 percent.
Biden has already stopped Trump’s “America First” foreign policy and has instead begun to implement a foreign policy focusing on globalization. Biden has already lifted numerous sanctions that Trump placed on Iran, with Biden’s ultimate goal being to re-enter a nuclear agreement with Iran. Biden has also rejoined both the Paris Climate Agreement and the World Health Organization. Both moves only seek to benefit other countries yet will cost billions of dollars in American taxpayer funds.
Biden has wasted no time attacking the 2nd Amendment. Biden has endorsed legislation that would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer, or import of 205 different “military-style assault weapons” and ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Additionally, Biden has proposed a budget that includes hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding for “gun buyback pilot programs.”
Throughout Biden’s first 100 days, he has made numerous frightening comments. Biden has called for the passage of the Equality Act, which would eliminate the legal recognition of biological sexes. Biden has even gone as far as attacking the cornerstones of America’s government. Biden recently argued that the Senate filibuster should be reformed to a “talking filibuster” to prevent “abuse.” Biden threatened to “go beyond what I’m talking about” if the Senate fails to pass radical legislation, such as H.R. 1.
Biden’s attacks on the cornerstones of America’s government extend beyond the filibuster. Biden has also attacked America’s judicial system by floating the idea of expanding the amount of Supreme Court justices. Biden has created the “Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States.” The commission, among other things, has been tasked with studying the idea of expanding the Supreme Court to 13 justices from 9 justices. Radical Democrats in Congress have introduced legislation that coincides with the commission’s efforts of expanding the Supreme Court, but many “moderate” Democrats are still waiting for the commission to officially release its findings to use them as justification or reason for expanding the Supreme Court.
Biden’s first 100 days have been radical, to say the least, but the Democrats have not acted silently. Democrats are open about their radical agenda. Now it is up to you and your elected officials to stop them from enacting it.
