On Monday, President Biden bitterly complained about Republicans and ex-President Trump for measures to weaken the supply chain, including erasing some of his achievements and replacing ObamaCare.
On Monday, the president highlighted 30 initiatives to boost medication and economic data availability at his supply chain resilience council’s inaugural meeting. The COVID-19 pandemic caused serious supply chain concerns. Thus, the council must reinforce it during the 2023 Christmas shopping season.
Biden brought up a Trump Truth Social post where the ex-president reiterated his promise to reform and dismantle the Affordable Care Act if elected in 2024.
But Biden would not name Trump directly.
The top Republican presidential contender said that he is seriously looking at options to replace ObamaCare and lamented that the Republican Party’s inability to abolish the legislation in 2017 was a “low point.”
Biden also raged that the supply chain resilience will be negatively affected if Republicans try to repeal parts of the Inflation Reduction Act, the Democrats’ flagship spending measure.
Republicans have so far vowed to roll back features like the tax breaks for renewable energy and EVs, but they have primarily focused on reducing funding for the IRS that was granted in the package.
Biden incorrectly claimed Republican proposals would reduce Social Security payouts several times.
Reports show that while delivering his State of the Union speech earlier this year, Biden engaged in heated rhetoric with House Republicans, warning that many of them intended to reduce funding for Medicare and Social Security. He was met with shouts and jeers from some GOP members present, who denied its veracity.
Democrats, on the other hand, are understandably worried about the president’s dismal popularity ratings and the fact that new national polls put him below or inside the margin of error against Trump in any possible rematch.
They are also concerned with what they see as Biden’s team’s apparent lack of urgency. According to establishment media sites last week, Biden’s age and the lack of a “plan B” if he does not seek reelection for whatever reason make the Democrat Party vulnerable.
