While Democratic leadership is focused on labeling parents as domestic terrorists, mandating COVID-19 vaccinations and creating a politically correct environment where individuals can choose their own pronouns and gender, Americans have different priorities.
According to the latest Quinnipiac poll where Americans were asked to choose the most urgent issues that face the country currently, inflation and immigration topped the list. Americans are worried about the rising prices of everything needing to provide for their families, placing inflation at the top of the list at 27 percent.
Immigration came in second highest at 12 percent. COVID-19 was third at 10 percent. Concerns about unemployment came in at just 2 percent. National Review found the poll to be very accurate, citing similar findings from a CNN poll, writing “this is not an outlier.”
A recent CNN poll found 42 percent of Americans believe inflation is the most important issue, with “ensuring that our borders are secure” coming in second at 29 percent. Pathetically, President Biden, his administration, and Democratic leadership are avoiding pressing matters while continuing to push things such as Biden’s Infrastructure bill.
On Thursday Biden is going to Ohio to “deliver remarks on how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law delivers for the American people by investing in clean-up and restoration efforts in the Great Lakes region and surrounding waterways.”
Cleaning up waterways. That is what is getting the President of the United States out of bed in the morning? In an interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt who asked about inflation skyrocketing to 7.5 percent, a 40-year high, Biden was defensive and rude:
BIDEN: Well, you’re being a wise guy with me a little bit. I understand that’s your job. But look — at the time what happened was the, uh . . . let’s look at the reason for the inflation. The reason for the inflation is the supply chains were cut off, meaning that the products, for example, automobiles, the lack of computer chips to be able to build those automobiles, so they could function, they need those computer chips. They were not available, so what happens? With the number of cars were reduced, the new cars reduced — it made up at one point one-third the cost of inflation, because the price of automobiles were up. So, what I did, when I went out and made sure we started to make those domestically. We got Intel to come in and provide 20 billion dollars to build a new facility. A number of organizations are doing the same kinds of things.

Biden spends $1.65 trillion taxpayer dollars while vacationing in St. Croix
While vacationing in the island of St. Croix for the holidays, President Joe Biden on Thursday signed into law the massive $1.65 omnibus spending package.
The whopping 4,155 pages was supported by only nine House Republicans and 13 Senate Republicans. Majority of criticism from the GOP includes concerns that the bill was rushed and crammed with wasteful spending by a lame-duck Democratic-dominated Congress. The recourse will punish American families by adding to the national debt and exacerbate inflation.
“Today, I signed the bipartisan omnibus bill, ending a year of historic progress. It’ll invest in medical research, safety, veteran health care, disaster recovery, VAWA funding — and gets crucial assistance to Ukraine,” Biden tweeted. “Looking forward to more in 2023.”
Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell “praised the bill on the grounds that it represents a real decrease in discretionary spending. He presented it as a positive that nondefense spending jumped by only 5.5 percent, from $730 billion to $772.5 billion, amid an inflation rate of 7.1 percent” writes National Review.
“The bipartisan government-funding bill that Senators Shelby and Leahy have finished negotiating does exactly the opposite of what the Biden administration first proposed,” he said. “This bill provides a substantial real-dollar increase to the defense baseline . . . and a substantial real-dollar cut to the non-defense, non-veterans baseline,” McConnell insisted as negotiations were wrapping up.
House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, however, stated his strong disapproval of the bill before it even advanced. Affirming a letter from 13 House Republicans, McCarthy demanded the bill is reckless, irresponsible, and a “purposeful refusal to secure and defend our borders.”
For example, it failed to incorporate protections for Title 42, the pandemic policy that allows illegal immigrants to be expelled on a public-health basis, which currently hangs in the balance at the Supreme Court.
National Review adds, “The funding in the bill, which averted a federal government shutdown before the new year, includes an allocation of $45 billion in defense assistance to Ukraine. Some Republican priorities, such as Electoral Count Act reform and a bigger military budget, were nested in with Democratic appropriations, such as increased funding for Medicaid and food stamps.”
