First on Fox: House Republicans are looking to exploit that President BidenHis inaugural anniversary was in his first year, explaining the outline of his “failures” and arguing that the GOP was better equipped to lead.
According to an internal memo obtained by LBL Digital, House Conservatives plan to drive home the message that Biden has created a crisis since his first year – no end in sight.
“As we approach the one-year anniversary of Biden’s inauguration, we instinctively reflect on the policy failures of this administration,” Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., Wrote in a memo Friday to the Republican Study Committee. “And there are a lot of them.”
Only one third of Americans give Biden a thumbs-up in the new national poll
Thursday marks the one-year anniversary of Biden’s January 20 inauguration. With confidence in the chances of recalling Congress in this year’s midterm elections, Republicans are taking the opportunity to use the anniversary and highlight Biden’s string of “self-made crises.”
The Republican Study Committee headed by Banks released a four-page memo titled “Biden Year 1: A Presidency in Crisis” to its members and conservative insiders on Friday. It describes 10 areas in which Biden’s policies have created crises: border, inflation, education, supply chain, crime, Big Tech, China, the Middle East, Afghanistan and the belief in our elections.
The memo provides a side-by-side comparison of Biden’s policy on each issue beside the GOP approach on how to solve the problem.
Across the Capitol in the Senate, Republicans are preparing various ways to mark the one-year anniversary of Biden’s inauguration, where he highlights what he sees as a failure year, according to Senate GOP aides.
The one-year anniversary comes after a particularly tough week for the president. Biden’s legislative agenda stalled after he failed to persuade the Senate Democrats to abolish the filibuster rule. Supreme Court interrupted Their coronavirus vaccine mandate for non-healthcare employers.
On Friday, Biden acknowledged his struggles, while trying to highlight a major achievement of his presidency: the passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill.
“There’s been a lot of talk about the disappointments and things we didn’t do,” Biden said Friday. “We’re going to do a lot of them, I might add. But this is something we’ve done, and it’s a huge impact for the country.”
Biden has a 33% approval rating in a recent poll, and Republicans are predicting that the president could be worse off.
“I have no doubt that Year 2 will be worse than Year 1,” the banks wrote. “The Biden administration is not slowing down. They continue to turn the screws on American families and I see no sign of them leaving.”
