Joe’s Your Man!

It is official that Joe Biden is the candidate for president for the Democrats….and if he wins what will we get?

VOX put together a good review/summary of what a Biden presidency would look like…..

https://www.vox.com/2020/8/20/21374251/joe-biden-agenda-president-policy

I am always stating that Democrats have great ideas….But cannot play the game of politics……this is why that all those sweeping plans they make every election have never come about even when they win the presidency and the Congress.

Now that we have a candidate to face Trump in November…can you tell me just what their polices are all about?  I mean something other than “beat Trump”….(pause here for all the hustling to get to Google)…….

At a loss for those ideas?

Let me help……

Platform committee co-chair Denis McDonough, who served as former President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, called it the “boldest Democratic platform in American history.”  (his is pure bullshit!)

The draft party document released last week endorses universal health care and makes it clear that low- or no-cost coverage for every American is the party’s eventual goal. Rather than backing a single mandatory government-run health insurance program, however, it calls for adding a public option to the existing Affordable Care Act.

The platform also sets aggressive goals for combating climate change, including making all American power plants carbon neutral by 2035 and adding 500 million solar panels and 60,000 wind turbines to the country’s electricity grid within the next five years.  (not going to happen)

It also calls for a $15 minimum wage, mandatory paid family leave, more federal gun control, broad changes to federal sentencing guidelines and drug laws, and many other changes that most Democratic candidates for Congress and the White House have supported for years.  (not going to happen….a lesser amount will be the compromise if anything happens at all)

(NPR)

There is so much more in the platform but these sections will get the best applause…..and sadly probably nothing will be accomplished along the lines the Dems predict.

But if you gonna vote for a Dem then maybe knowing what they pretend to care about would be helpful…..if so then read the platform!

Like I stated…Great Ideas!

I am still concerned about Biden;s foreign policy (post to follow)…..there seems to be nothing to make me think that anything will change in our rush to war strategies.

The media would have us believe that Biden has universal support….that he is what the voter wants….but is that really true?

That is for a later post.

I think the MSM is wishful thinking…..I believe that the polls are not accurate and this election is a lot closer than the polls show……even some polls show that Trump is gaining in support….

resident Donald Trump’s approval rating has slowly climbed with less than three months to go until the 2020 presidential election, according to polling data.

The FiveThirtyEight approval rating tracker shows that the president’s popularity rose almost two percentage points from a low of 40.1 percent at the end of July to 41.9 percent as of Wednesday evening.

Trump’s disapproval rating has also fallen over the past month, despite criticism of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the economy’s rebound from related shutdown measures.

Know the issues or just hold your nose a vote blindly and then bitch about what you get.

Learn Stuff!

VOTE!

  1. Lots of enticing promises, most (if not all) of which will undoubtedly come to nothing if Biden wins. Sorry to be so negative, but you know that’s true, based on past events.
    Best wishes, Pete.
