Biden’s Broken Promises to the American People

Every politician from the dawn of time has made promises they can’t keep. It’s part of the reason why so many people distrust politicians or don’t participate in the political process at all. Sometimes politicians make small promises; one’s that don’t have a huge impact on people’s lives. Sometimes, the broken promises are so blatant and devastating that they deeply hurt American businesses and families. This Democrat Congress will certainly have a lot to answer for as we approach midterm elections this fall. President Biden has led the charge as Liar-in-Chief, as the mainstream media cheers him. Here are just a few examples of Biden’s broken promises to the American people. 

One of the most notorious broken promises that Joe Biden ever made was on the campaign trail when he tweeted, “If you make under $400,000, you will not pay a penny more in taxes when I’m President. The super-wealthy and big corporations will finally pay their fair share — and we’ll invest that money in working families.” It turns out that under the President’s fiscal year (FY) 2023 budget bill released last year, “nearly 6 million taxpayers taking home less than $100,000 per year would see their taxes go up in 2023,” the Heritage Foundation reported. To make matters worse, should Biden’s tax package pass, by “2027, more than half of all families earning $75,000 to $100,000 would see their taxes go up by a total of more than $3 billion,” Heritage reported. 

Also included in the White House’s $3.5 trillion dollar spending bill is a corporate tax hike to 26.5%, which is even higher than the 25% corporate tax rate imposed by the Chinese Communist Party. To propose such reckless spending under the pretext of a broken campaign promise and on the backs of the American people is dishonest and counterproductive as the country still struggles to recover. To make matters worse, Biden’s wild tax and spending plan will give tax breaks to wealthy elites in blue states and bailouts for bankrupt Democrat-run cities. Perhaps Biden had a slip of the tongue and meant to say that ‘working families will finally pay more and that that money will go to the super-wealthy and big corporations’, like the ones that contributed to his campaign.

On the economy, Biden has failed all of the American people, despite his broken pledge to specifically “fight for middle-class and low-income Americans.” Last month, the U.S. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that year-over-year inflation for 2021 was 7.5%, the largest annual increase since 1982. Inflation can be the single most destructive and hurtful tax of all. Low-income families and American workers are being particularly hard-hit by skyrocketing prices because they spend a larger proportion of their earnings on things like utilities and transportation, which are rising faster than the overall rate. With President Biden and Congressional Democrats spending nearly $6 trillion in the last year, fueling record inflation, and then proposing trillions more in the Build Back Broke plan, Biden’s agenda is going to shut down the American economic engine that was roaring under Trump.

Number three relates to the biggest humanitarian disasters in the world that unfolded in the last year on the U.S. southern border. “The U.S. Border Patrol reported more than 1.6 million encounters with migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border in the 2021 fiscal year, more than quadruple the number of the prior fiscal year and the highest annual total on record,” Pew Research reported last year. Biden pledged to fix America’s broken immigration system, but all he’s done is reversed some of Trump’s immigration policies and then housed these new, illegal criminals in hotel rooms at taxpayer expense. 

And then there is the disaster in Afghanistan, where President Biden’s disastrous retreat left Americans behind enemy lines, despite his promise to evacuate all Americans and get them home before Biden handed the keys of Kabul over to the Taliban terror group. Months later, Reuters reported that some 900 Americans were left behind by the commander in chief.

Finally, the biggest broken pledge of this presidency has been Biden’s pledge to “shut down this virus, not the U.S.” A recent focus group of Democrat voters in Pennsylvania gave the Biden Administration a “C- grades or lower,” POLITICO reported, as the President’s policies have had harmful effects on the economy and the American way of life. The President’s sagging poll numbers are directly correlated to his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic. A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll showed only 53% approve of Biden’s response to the pandemic, down from 69% when he first took office. 

Oppressive mandates, record-inflation, out-of-control tax and spending bills, foreign policy blunders, and a year full of broken promises is all that the Biden administration has delivered for the American people so far.

Wait until his Union Speach next week and how he tells us how wonderful he is. Don’t get sick just remember what he has done to this beautiful country in just one year. We can not survive another three years under the Washington communist party. We will soon we in WWlll because of his weakness and we will all suffer greatly. Biden’s, Pelosi and other communists have made great wealth in Ukrainian and the people will soon be bombed out of their homes and lives. Soon the United States will be involved because of what is in Washington.

Why would a sane person listen to the lying, disgusting idiot that he is. If I wanted to lied to, I would get a few hundred dollars worth of five dollar bills and go to the strip club.at least I would get a rise out of the lies-with Buck Fiden all I will get is the shaft and a large following of Biden’s the SHEMALES would just love that.When these fools go to the bar, they always order a Penis Colossus!!

Obviously the experts of setting up a puppet government is our greedy politicians and the companies and institutions that bribe them. Even Putin could take some lessons. We are no longer the moral majority but the greed has swayed our most powerful to forget their humanity to fellow man.

Biden should have NEVER been elected. I honestly believe the election was fraudulent and President Trump should be in the WH where he belongs! I’m praying people have come to their senses and vote only for those who are patriotic and love the USA as much as ‘We the People’ love it! GOD BLESS AMERICA

Everything that comes out of Biden’s mouth is a lie. I will not watch his so called speech because it is all lies and I can’t stand to look at him with those dark beady eyes. He gives me chills. In my opinion he does not give a crap about the American people or how we are suffering. He is evil

NOT BROKEN PROMISES BUT TRUE LIES. AN OLD EXAMPLE OF THE ANSWER TO “WILL YOU LOVE ME IN THE MORNING?” IT IS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND HOW, IF THE NUMBERS ARE CORRECT,THAT SO MANY VOTERS FELL FOR THIS 2 TIME PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE LOSER AND HIS RHETORIC. ADDITIONALLY HE “CHOSE” THE CANDIDATE, OL” HEELS UP” WHO WAS RUNNING IN THE 2% RANGE IN THE PRIMARIES AS HIS RUNNING MATE. FACE IT– HE IS THE OBAMA 3RD TERM COMPLETION OF THAT AGENDA AND HE IS BEING MANIPULATED BEYOND BELIEF. THE CONTROLS ARE SHOT OUT ON THIS PLANE. CAN WE LAND IT SUCCESSFULLY? I CAN HARDLY WAIT FOR THE ADDRESS NEXT WEEK. I’LL KEEP A BARF BAG HANDY.

What good will it do to impeach Biden? We will then have Kamala as president, which will be every bit as bad.

Her could give a rats behind about America or its people. Clueless, based on his words and actions as he departs DC for the weekend in Delaware while the rest of the world is going to hell in a hand basket no thanks to a weak ineffectual President. We would not be in this position had Putin not received aid and comfort by this admin in providing the oil that keeps Putin war machine advancing. Estimated
1 billion a day in Russia revenue in the sale oil. Sanctions? Open our spigots here in the U.S. and supply oil to our allies and the home front instead of Russia and this would come to a halt! Also would help with our created inflation at home by this reckless admin.

I knew that Uncle Joe would give us “We The People” a difficult time, including taxes> Inflation, which is 7%+ is also a tax, which we are paying now. Gasoline is at a all time high, and a little over a year ago, we were energy independent! We now have to relay on Saudi Arabia, and OPEC to get our raw crude. He has already tapped into our strategic oil reserves, and this only lasted for 2.5 days. What a dunderhead! He and his cronies are pushing the Green New Deal, and are they building their wind farms and solar array fields? Not to my knowledge. The USA has NOT built a major power plant since 1999, and our power grid will not take all of these 70 Amp chargers. What do these Demorats think? I have said that to be a dem your 1st criteria is to lie, lie, lie!!!!!

I’ve said this before, and I’ll probably say it again: I’ve never understood why the IDIOTS in DE kept re-electing slo-joe? I live in DE, and I’m proud to say that I NEVER voted for him.

What is Donald Trump trying to do this week, by calling Putin a genius for claiming two parts of Ukraine are independent countries. Trump only adds gas to the fire by praising Putin. Why,why,why not worry more about Americans.

Trump didn’t praise Putin he just said he out smarted Biden, which in itself is not very high praise.

Putin, especially compared to Biden, IS a genius and a savvy tactician. That doesn’t mean he is moral or that Trump (or any conservative) approves of his actions. If Putin would simply call himself a Communist again, the Looney Left would love him!

Here’s the difference, Trump kept his promises but the media highlighted everything they could to make him look bad. Biden has no intention of keeping his promises but the media highlights everything they can to make him look good.

Agreed. If all domestic news outlets were truly fair and non-biased, Biden would probably not have been elected. Unfortunately, our mainstream media is subservient to the Democrat Party. Their news reporting is intentionally “shaped” into a product that best serves progressive interests.

I think you are all mistaken. Biden didn’t make any of those promises. He was proclaiming he was going to do the opposite of what we thought we heard. He’s actually leader of the Opposite Party. If I say I’m going to turn a light on, that actually means I’m turning it off or, if it’s off, I’m leaving it off.
