Mercedes Schlapp: A Biden Economy Would Be ‘Incredibly Destructive’

On Thursday’s airing of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast, Trump 2020 Campaign Senior Advisor Mercedes Schlapp explained why the country run by former Vice President Joe Biden would be a disaster for American families and American workers.

“In fact, even Bernie Sanders has said that Biden would be the most progressive president that we’ve seen in decades.”

“I think we have to say goodbye to the so-called moderate career politician Joe Biden because he has made a political play to unite himself to Bernie Sanders and the Socialists,” said Schlapp. “And, in fact, even Bernie Sanders has said that Biden would be the most progressive president that we’ve seen in decades.”

She added, “Biden has decided to embrace this unity platform. Quote unquote. Let’s just think about this. This is about abolishing ICE. This is about halting deportations of illegal immigrants. This is about supporting the Green New Deal that would cost hundreds of thousands of jobs in the energy industry. This is about ensuring that we’re able to add more regulations, which we know would be burdensome over-regulation that would stunt American economic growth.”

The economy President Donald Trump built, which put money back in Americans’ pockets, is what Biden wants to reverse, Schlapp said. Instead, under a Biden administration, that money would be allocated for plans such as his clean energy proposal, which demands $2 trillion from the American taxpayer.

“And then, of course, what Biden has called from the beginning, which is that he would roll back President Trump’s tax cuts you’re talking, then that based on, for example, his big, clean energy plan that he has that would cost trillions of dollars as well as combining this with the unity platform, it’s gonna cause tax increases for about 82% of Americans,” she added.

Schlapp didn’t mince words saying Biden’s plan would literally “steal 585,000 jobs” from Americans.

“I mean, this is devastating for American families. This is devastating for the American worker,” she said. “And it’s why Joe Biden needs to be stopped.”

The Administration’s tax policies have allowed Americans the freedom to do things like buy a home or take their families on vacations. Under Biden’s government, there wouldn’t be such freedom because of the sweeping tax increases, Schlapp explained.

“There is this reality that we’re facing right now in terms of knowing that for Joe Biden, his economic plan would be incredibly destructive. The president has been able to build an America that’s energy independent. And you’re talking about for Joe Biden and for Bernie Sanders, they’ve launched a war on American Energy independence by saying that they’re going to rejoin the Paris climate agreement accorded that, they’re gonna mandate net-zero carbon emissions from homes, offices and all new buildings and get rid of fossil fuels. And It’s like such an extreme plan that, as we know, would be detrimental to the American worker.”
