Biden uses war and abortion to launch legislative campaign

You must vote Democrat to end the abortion ban. The blame for the rise in prices lies primarily with Putin, in addition to the pandemic. Republicans want to bankrupt the middle class through taxes. These are the messages that Joe Biden is processing at the start of the midterm campaign to renew the House of Representatives and a third of the Senate next November.

The Supreme Court’s conservative majority project to overthrow free abortion, anchored here in 1973 by another High Court ruling (Roe v. Wade), was seen by Democrats as an opportunity to try to wake up their electorate. The ruling will confirm the law of 26 Republican states to end a right supported by most Americans. Consequently, as soon as the draft ruling was leaked, Biden raised the alarm to call voters to the ranks in front of what he proposed as a war in defense of the most sacred thing in the lives of citizens: the planned sentencing not only challenges women’s “fundamental right to choose,” she said , — but also “anything else that has to do with privacy and people’s most intimate decisions about their bodies, their lives, and their families. He argues that contraceptives and same-sex marriage could fall short of the ultra-conservative crackdown on these gains, hoping to pull his constituents out of the morass the polls have attributed to them.

Relief in the face of the pandemic and economic success do not compensate for disappointment over failed plans.

On Wednesday, the President entered the electoral arena with a vengeance, delivering a militant allusion to the ultra-conservative movement popularized by Donald Trump, MAGA (Make America Great Again, Let’s Make America Great Again): “The President will comment on his plan to cut costs for working families and will pit his approach against the Republicans’ ultra-MAGA plan to raise family taxes and threaten health and social security programs,” the note said. The language of the announcement left no room for doubt: the leader, having rolled up his sleeves, was ready to fully engage in the intermediate campaign.

In the promised intervention, held in the Eisenhower government building next to the White House, Joe Biden first updated a slogan he created in March to blame Russia for its current phase of inflation, 8.3%, the highest in 40 years. years in the United States is “Putin’s price increase”, named by the president. And it is precisely the fact that the invasion of Ukraine caused the rise in the cost of oil that explains 60% of the increase in inflation, and is also behind the rise in food prices, since the countries involved are “the two breadbaskets of the world,” he argued. . . .

An unexpected crisis in the supply of powdered milk for infants has stirred up legions of parents

Republicans were quick to respond that it was Biden himself who, through his “belated” actions and his spending policies, was driving inflation. In recent days, the opposition has also found an unexpected additional weapon in the infant milk powder crisis: an estimated shortage of 40% of demand. Added to shortages of this product, caused by problems in the supply chain, should be added a deadly outbreak of a bacterial infection among children who consumed the milk of the largest manufacturer (Abbott), which put legions of American parents on the warpath.

In his counterattack against the opposition, the president decided to focus on the recurring issue of taxes. What happens if the Republicans take control of the chambers and adjust the budgets for the “ultra MAGA” program? Well, that “75 million citizens of the country and their families will have to pay the state an average of $ 1,500 a year more,” and the rich will pay less. He argues that this is the essence of the fiscal plan developed by Florida Senator and Republican leadership member Rick Scott.

Biden accused Republicans of wanting to raise taxes for 75 million families

Biden knows, and endlessly repeats, that the biggest concern of voters today is “how to fill a gas tank” without going bankrupt. But his inflation-fighting strategy, based on freeing up oil reserves, cutting household spending and raising taxes on top-earning companies and individuals, is of dubious effectiveness and will take time to catch on.

The president has no big recent achievements to sell. Its all-important $1.9 trillion rescue plan to overcome the economic damage from the pandemic, its growth and employment gains, or its $1.2 trillion infrastructure program is not enough to offset the frustrations caused by the burial of a flagship social and environmental action plan. the $1.75 billion spending rejected by Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Kirsten Sinema, as well as the infamous failure of laws to protect voting rights, police reform, and address immigration issues.

With no good domestic performance and an approval rating close to 40%, Biden intends to make a virtue out of necessity; from war, defense weapon; and from defeat – in the case of an abortion – a battering ram for future victories. Complex strategy.
