Democrats Want Biden to Hit Reset

Instead, they are bracing for midterm losses.

House Democrats headed for a Philadelphia retreat this week. Instead, they are tallying up the losses, and bracing for more.

Between crappy approval rating, Bidenflation (it’s pretty bad when inflation is renamed after you), embarrassing leadership on the global stage, and outrageous gas prices, Democrats will have a hard time voting for themselves come midterms. And let’s not even mention Biden’s approval ratings.

Wednesday, Biden’s latest “coronavirus aid” package failed to make it through Congress- just one more piece of proof that Biden’s leadership is ineffective. He can’t get his legislation through. And now with new problems on the horizon, midterms will turn Congress red, that’s a guarantee.

According to the New York Times:

One year to the day after the enactment of Mr. Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan — a law that remains broadly popular even if the president, at the moment, is not — Democrats are toiling to retool their message and refocus their agenda. They are worried that the accomplishments they helped deliver to Mr. Biden are being drowned out by concern over the rising price of gas and a focus on their legislative failures.

And they are looking to the president, who addressed them at the retreat on Friday, to help them reframe the conversation.

“This may be the most important off-year election in modern history,” Mr. Biden told lawmakers on Friday afternoon. If Democrats lose their majorities in the House and the Senate, he said, “the only thing I’ll have then is a veto pen.”

The president outlined his administration’s achievements over the past year, noting that few pieces of legislation have had the impact of the stimulus plan he proposed during his first month in office. He criticized Republicans for wrongly blaming him for gas prices.

But it was not clear from his remarks how Mr. Biden planned to help his party refashion its message before November.

Gone was the talk of a transformative agenda to remake the country’s social safety net, which was once a centerpiece of Democrats’ sales pitch to voters. The words “build back better” were all but forbidden among the groggy lawmakers who arrived in Philadelphia in the wee hours of Thursday morning.

Biden’s even a laughingstock among progressives.

Speaking to reporters, Representative Pramila Jayapal of Washington, the chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, joked that the slogan for Mr. Biden’s defunct social policy and climate bill had become like the evil Voldemort in “Harry Potter”: that which must not be named.

Instead, after a year of supporting his agenda, House Democrats have pivoted to beseeching Mr. Biden to act on his own through executive actions to address the outstanding issues they care about before they face voters in November.

Ms. Jayapal said the president could pass executive actions to cap the price of insulin, raise the overtime eligibility threshold to increase wages for tens of millions of people, and fix the so-called family glitch in the Affordable Care Act, which can make it impossible for some workers with modest incomes to afford health insurance.

Representative James E. Clyburn of South Carolina, the No. 3 Democrat, said he recently met with White House officials to discuss executive actions that Mr. Biden could take to protect voting rights and overhaul policing after the demise of his efforts to pass major legislation tackling both issues. And Representative Raul Ruiz, Democrat of California and the chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, said he wanted the president to use his executive power to raise the cap on the number of refugees who can be resettled in the United States this year.

Other lawmakers said they hoped a shift to the center debuted at Mr. Biden’s State of the Union address last week, along with strong support for his handling of the war in Ukraine, would be enough to persuade voters that Democrats were focused on kitchen-table issues.

“We care about everyday Americans, and they don’t,” Representative Hakeem Jeffries of New York, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said when asked to sum up his party’s pitch to voters.

Goodbye Zoom

Shockingly, Democrats met in person this year, breaking with the Zoom meetings that ruled the era of coronavirus.

The retreat was the group’s first in-person gathering in three years and a chance for Democrats — who have seen 31 colleagues opt to retire — to talk up their achievements and compare notes on how to move forward.

“We have passed two major pieces of legislation that, in any other Congress, would have been historic in and of themselves,” said Representative Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, the majority leader, referring to the American Rescue Plan and the bipartisan infrastructure bill.

He acknowledged that the landscape might look bleak, but he said the political environment this summer would matter more.

“The polls don’t look particularly good now,” Mr. Hoyer said, “but that’s happened in the past.”

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said on Thursday that keeping the majority depended on speaking to voters in a way that was not too preachy or condescending.

“We spent a bunch of time talking about attributes in addition to issues,” Mr. Maloney said of a closed-door presentation he delivered on Thursday. “Whether voters think we care about them, whether they think we share their values, whether we have the right priorities.”

Every vulnerable Democrat, Mr. Maloney said, was “in the business of having to say, ‘You may not like everything about my political party, but I’m getting it done.’”

I’m still waiting to see the list of things these Democrats are getting done. So far, it looks like everything has gotten worse. There are less jobs, more expensive goods, failing investments, and foreign policy is more laughable that Kamala Harris’ work ethic.

Yet, some Democrats actually think Biden’s State of the Union address helped!

Some of the moderate Democrats whose seats are most at risk said the tone of the president’s State of the Union address — in which he underscored funding the police, capping the cost of insulin and fighting the opioid epidemic — raised their hopes that he had moved away from simply championing progressive proposals that pleased the party’s left flank but could alienate constituents in conservative-leaning districts like theirs.

“Veterans, opioids, these are things we can come together on,” said Representative Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, one of the 32 Democrats identified by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as running for re-election in a competitive seat. “Ukraine is part of the unity message. That is what I think our caucus is hungry for, especially those of us who believe in the value of reaching out to Democrats and Republicans, and it’s certainly what we’re hearing back at home.”

Wait- holdup, do these Democrats really believe Biden favors Ukraine over Russia? Remember, after canceling the Keystone pipeline, Biden started buying billions of barrels of Russian oil. And let’s not forget Biden’s previous dealings in Ukraine. Sure, they were pals when Burisma paid Hunter Biden gobs of money for a fake job, but the second someone planned to investigate, Biden went down there to throw around a few threats. Or have we forgotten?

More Lies

Right now, House Democrats are floating claims that Biden lowered the deficit, killing it with job growth, and working to get prices “under control.” I’d sure love to see the “new math” that makes these claims possible.

No matter how Democrats portray life in America, the truth is, we can feel what’s really going on. When it’s $130 to fill up the Suburban with gas and $600 for a week’s worth of groceries, it’s pretty easy to see the economy isn’t living up to Biden’s promises.

In fact, everything Trump gave us, Biden has taken away. Energy independence, border security, jobs, the list goes on and on. I can only think of two things most Americans get from the Biden Administration. Headaches and stomach ulcers.

  4. Access to various payment gateways was one of the greatest issues we observed
    from multiple countries. Instead of limiting our customers, we offer different payment
    options, so they don’t have to worry about having a
    specific payment type on hand. In certain places of the world, traditional payment gateways may restrict customers.
    You can use Bitcoin payments to solve this problem. Many businesses worldwide are starting to accept
    Bitcoin as a payment method like they do credit
    cards. Bitcoin is known as “the secure money of the Internet.” To handle bitcoin payments, bitcoin payment services function as
    a mediator between the sender of the money and the recipient.
    We offer support for receiving bitcoin payments.
    So don’t worry.
    Due to lower transaction costs than a conventional credit card
    payment, bitcoin payments are more cost-effective than standard credit card transactions.

    So it is advisable to use Bitcoin payments instead of the traditional ways, but we are not
    trying to force you into anything; you are free to choose whatever
    payment method you want.
