President Joe Biden Doesn’t Care if His Policies Hurt Average Americans

At the recent celebrity-studded fundraiser in New York for President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama spoke enthusiastically about Joe’s deep empathy for the “Little Guy.”

Obama asked the room rhetorically, “At the end of the day, who do you think is actually going to look out for you? Who do you think is going to fight on your behalf? … This guy does. Yeah.”

Obama’s not wrong. The president does care about the people at the fundraiser—liberal elites and billionaires, private equity mega-donors, and Hollywood stars. These folks paid as much as $500,000 to attend the glitzy Radio City Music Hall event.

That is who Joe Biden always caters to — climate extremists feeding on the enormous trillion-dollar Inflation Reduction Act and those eager to drain off their “fair share” of billions, union bosses, and tech bigwigs who hope they won’t be the next FTC target.

The DNC won’t disclose who attended the soiree and helped raise over $26 million. Why not? Well, because Dems pretend former President Donald Trump is the candidate who caters to the monied elite. What they don’t want the public to know is that the president’s cronies are far more Wall Street than Main Street, U.S.A.

The harsh reality is that Joe Biden doesn’t care for everyday Americans. The feeling is mutual. In a recent Economist/YouGov poll, only 17% of adults in America with incomes below $100,000 had a “very favorable” view of the current president.

When asked who they would vote for if the election were today, Trump triumphs over Biden with individuals earning less than $100,000 — while those who earned more choose Biden.

Why do Americans who are lower income gravitate toward Trump? It isn’t because he is so likable. The same poll shows that they don’t view him that way. But they do believe his policies worked better for them. No surprise; they’re correct.

In Joe Biden’s America, the poor continue to grow poorer, and the rich — well, they’re doing just fine. Our economy is two-tiered. Right now, the bottom tear is struggling. Evercore ISI, an investment firm, recently surveyed clients — two-thirds of those surveyed don’t believe the stock market is pricing in “the stress on lower-income consumers.” At the same time, over 80% think the “financial stress on the lower-income consumer” will stay the same or get worse.

This isn’t an accident. It’s the outcome of the Biden administration’s policies. Allowing millions of illegal immigrants to flood into our country is driving down wages for Americans who have lower skills.

Additionally, the overwhelming majority of jobs added since the pandemic have gone to immigrants. While we don’t know the breakdown, we do know young men who are born in the United States haven’t yet recovered all of the jobs lost during the Covid-19 pandemic. There are 2.9 million additional foreign-born workers who have jobs now than in 2019.

The struggles of low-income households continue to grow. According to Bank of America, spending growth from middle—and lower-class Americans has come to a halt. This is a significant change from last year when the bank viewed these workers as a “point of strength.” The report points to a job market change as the potential culprit and writes that “some of the momentum at the lower-income end of the labor market may be slowing.” But now, extra savings and benefits are mostly gone.

The worsening jobs market has yet to slow spending. Although many Americans were able to build up substantial savings from Covid relief packages passed under Biden and Trump, spending has remained strong.

As a result, Americans have continued piling on credit card debt, which increased almost 15% in the fourth quarter of last year. Many are now in trouble. Credit card borrowing delinquencies surged over 50% last year, surpassing pre-pandemic levels.

In the meantime, Biden’s push for green energy is raising the cost of living. The cost of electricity has been up over 20% since the president took office, thanks to his unrealistic climate agenda, which is at odds with an inefficient electric grid.

Do low-income Americans care more about the president’s push for electric stoves and cars or keeping the lights on in their homes?

Biden’s effort to halt domestic fossil fuel production has meant higher energy prices. American oil production is hovering near an all-time high despite the Biden administration slowing down drilling permits and leases and piling on new taxes and fees.

However, domestic oil production could be even higher, which could help offset OPEC+ supply cuts and turbulence in Russia and the Middle East. Oil prices have increased 18% this year and are at their highest since last October. Gas prices are up 6% over the past month and are expected to rise, further draining cash-strapped Americans’ wallets.

The continuous explosion of government spending under President Biden, which is counteracting Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s efforts to rein in inflation and inflate the entire economy, has hurt everyone.

However, higher gasoline, food, and electricity prices don’t mean to the elites supporting Biden. It’s the average American who is getting hit the hardest. Don’t be surprised if Donald Trump is reelected in November.
