Deb Billado: Joe Biden’s blunders

Editor’s note: This commentary is by Deb Billado, chairwoman of the Vermont GOP. 

For those of you who truly know what Joe Biden stands for, then his address to Congress earlier this week wasn’t much of a surprise. The takeaway: higher taxes, a weaker economy, and more government interference in your lives.

Deborah Billado, chair of the Vermont GOP

While Biden didn’t spend too much time talking about his proposed tax hikes, we know about his plans to raise income taxes, capital gains taxes, and corporate taxes. These represent hundreds of billions of dollars in tax hikes that we simply can’t afford. His attack on the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ignores the critical provisions it included for working families, the middle class, and more, which led to the red-hot economy we saw prior to COVID.

Biden’s “plan” for health care involves doubling-down on the broken promises of ObamaCare, even though premiums have more than doubled for the average American since ObamaCare became law. Biden talks about “access,” but the truth is that his plan will boost subsidies, decrease choice and competition, and force more Americans into even narrower provider networks.

His “infrastructure” plan includes everything but the kitchen sink. In fact, less than 6 percent of it would go towards actual infrastructure, like rebuilding our roads and bridges. It brings back nightmares of Obama’s “shovel-ready jobs” promises that never panned out.

Meanwhile, important issues–like the growing crisis at the border–hardly received a mention. There was no plan or vision to deal with the real challenges that millions of Americans are facing.

All-in-all, Biden’s speech represented the same tired-and-tried talking points that we’ve heard from Democrat politicians over and over again. The bottom line is that these “proposals” will cost more for you, your children, and your grandchildren.

U.S. Senator Tim Scott delivered an excellent, uplifting, and inspirational response to Biden’s address. You can check it out here.

  1. The Deep State Justice Department, Intelligence, China, and Russia have the goods to put Biden and his crime family away for the rest of their lives. He will do as he is told!

    • Here is an online comment from one of the many clips of this video…..

      It was in response to somebody saying, the problem was half the people clapping for Mitt Romney at the end…..

      Exactly the problem. Same with everyday uninformed sheeple that wear the “Party” blinders and vote accordingly.

      Just like that carpetbagger locust Mittens stated ” I’ve been a Republican all my life”, I have heard some of the hard core, uniformed Democrats in my area say the same nonsense. They will repeat, “My grandparents were Democrats, my parents were Democrats, and I’ve been a Democrat all my life and will remain a Democrat till I die.” They are ignorant of the fact that they are voting for and supporting Communist and their own destruction. The same with those Romney clapping Republican idiots who vote for the same old RINO deciptiCON elitist.

      Most of the Party Blinder voters who don’t even know what is taking place in the country, the District of Corruption or even their State and local governments, continue to vote for and clap like trained seals for “Party hacks” like Peter Deflecto aka Mittens Carpetbagger Romney. I just don’t get it. How can anyone clap, vote for or even feign respect for a self serving squish, fraud like Romney? SMH……However, I am elated the majority in that hall, booed that snake off the stage so he could not read his planned, prepared remarks trashing President Trump and bragging about what a good CONservative he is.
