Who could have ever predicted that?
How did you just know that the issues where Joe Biden would stiff his base would be the $2,000 stimulus checks, the $15 minimum wage, free college and the $50,000 of student loan debt relief and Universal Health Care? How did you know that he would come out of the gate guns blazing on woke, trans, climate and open borders issues which are the polarizing middle class lefty issues?
This is the first two weeks of the Biden administration:
The True Cons or the governing wing of the Republican Party does something similar. How did you know that when Trump came to power that he would come out of the gate guns blazing on Ryancare, Israel, tax cuts and all these other things that the donor class wanted? Both the Republicans and the Democrats seem to take turns delivering on their most unpopular ideas whenever they are in power.
Joe Biden lost Florida which approved a $15 minimum wage. There is considerable support among Independent and Republican voters for economic populist issues and foreign policy restraint. This is why the Biden administration is steering clear of picking the low hanging fruit like delivering $2,000 checks that has 80% support or withdrawing troops from Syria and Afghanistan.
