Bidens admin weaseling out of every campaign promise he made is a lesson in why you don’t make excuses for politicians



everrrrrr. I still think Biden’s better than trump by a mile but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to hate him for basically lying

After ONE MONTH in office you say this? Give him a chance. He has a lot to deal with and fix!!
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@396343,boudinMan] Yeah I do remember that. And that is true, the media will often roll out 'experts' with a specific opinion to slander a politician towards their ideological ends. But I also understand just because the leftwing media was being misleading about a vaccine rollout timeframe doesn't mean trump had anything to do with the vaccine rollout. he literally just said "go faster" and they used the mRNA research from the SARS incident that happened under Obama. You could just as easily say Obama made the vaccine if your giving credit to trump for just ordering it lol

[@960372,NoahB] well, i liken it to steve jobs who never accepted no for an answer. sometimes pushing and prodding is what makes things happen.
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@396343,boudinMan] ooo, i got some opinions about steve jobs but i'll spare you lol

He NEVER promised $50K student loan cancellation. And as for stimulus checks, Congress holds the purse strings.
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@946112,AllyGator] he’s not going to cancel the 10k he explicitly promised either
I don't remember him ever promising two thousand dollars a month..
He promised a two thousand dollar stimulus check..
That changed to 1400 after the run off elections in Georgia..

And he said pretty clearly that student loan debt cancelation wasn't on his agenda and that even a ten thousand dollar break through an executive order wasn't something that he would promise
You’re my problem now. He already clarified it. [@960372,NoahB]
NoahB · 26-30, M
Eh?? Me?? A problem?? Come now. At best I’m a complication [@14748,Zebrawl]
Just saying. *winks* [@960372,NoahB]
Thank God trump kept EVERY promise, huh? lol lol lol lol lol remember "In the first 100 days I'm going too....." when trump said it? He should come thru any day now on those promises, huh? Maybe even one of them?

What a promise breaker Biden is. ;-) He's already been in office a full 30 days now and he hasn't done EVERYTHING you want ....yet. What a slacker. Just thinking out of the box.......but maybe wait 60 days and see is all you want done is yet. Or maybe 90 days out of the next 4 years. lol lol lol
AllyGator · F
[@539720,anythingoes477] He's actually kept more promises than he has broken. And what? He has only been a month in office. Trump had 4 years to get Mexico to pay for that wall.
[@946112,AllyGator] I hear Donnie the Fascist is about to announce his fabulous healthcare plan any day now. he didn't have time in the 4 years he was in office to do it.......but any time now surely he will. ;-)
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@539720,anythingoes477] bro I hate trump. This isn’t about trump. I voted against trump twice.

47yrs bs’ing
[@476434,Tres13] But on the flip side.......he didn't spend any of those years being a Fascists white superracist that incited and initiated a coup on the government of the United States, huh? so there's that........
Tres13 · 51-55, M
Gringo loco [@539720,anythingoes477]
[@476434,Tres13] You forgot........."baby eating cannibal". lol lol lol DUH!!!!
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@8638,MarkPaul] hmmm I'll do it when you get off you sanctimonious high horse that presumes I care what you think about me personally.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@960372,NoahB] Well, it's that attitude of yours that I find so objectionable. You sure are quick to find criticism with me and yet you fail to take stock of your own selfish pursuits... regardless of the consequences to the rest of us.
MarkS · 46-50, M
[@8638,MarkPaul] agency and integrity.
[@867033,Playfulanddaring] I'm not the one that still thinks trump won.....4 months after the election. Biden in is the W H....trumps ass is in Florida sulking. So......whose the fucking idiot? ;-)
TexChik · F
[@539720,anythingoes477] you are
[@113373,TexChik] C'mon March 4th, huh? ;-) ;-) ;-) That's the day when nothing happens AGAIN and you all move the date to a new month for when trump will really take office. How long will it take you to realize what suckers you are??? :-)
Well, you might consider running for office yourself since you know better than any politician. Once you get elected and serve a term in office, you will be an true expert about promises made and kept.
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@377093,BiasForAction] lol oh good the classic “run yourself” line. Youre right, I should just stay a happy peasant forever and shut the hell up and be grateful for the people I voted no matter what they do.
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
{@noanb] no i do not think for one minute you are that naive to think politicians are honest and keep to there electoral promises no matter what political persuasion they are
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
[@960372,NoahB] good to see you give party you fair share of tongue lashings when there is an injustice 😆
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@3749,smiler2012] somebodies got to. their lettin' these dummies get away with murder lol
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
[@3749,smiler2012] there is an old saying power corrupts 😆
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@867033,Playfulanddaring] thank you
Northwest · M
Are you saying he promised $2K monthly checks, and $50K in debt cancellation?
Northwest · M
[@960372,NoahB] [quote]Hows that minimum wage increase going?[/quote]

You really have no clue what the $1.9T relief is about, do you? Or do you prefer to throw a bunch of stuff to see what sticks?

Under the relief bill, there's a provision to create a national $15 per hour minimum wage provision.
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@9416,Northwest] just trying to see where your at on this. not trying to 'gotcha' you. although i will admit i was a bit strong in the begining so I don't blame you for hitting me back with that energy.
Northwest · M
[@960372,NoahB] [quote]just trying to see where your at on this. [/quote]

I don't support a blank $50K for everyone. I support the Democrats longer term educational reform plan.

I can do basic arithmetic: $600 + $1,400 = $2,000.

I support a national $15 per hour minimum wage, and the primary reason is that it will create a more equitable national labor market, preventing companies from exploiting certain labor markets, and contributing to income inequality. This may backfire, but we have to try.

I think our immigration laws need reform and I think the Biden administration plan is the right start. I don't believe we need Trump's wall, technology offers better solutions.

I think the world is an ugly place, and as we work toward a better existence, we have to work with some nations whose leaders you would normally would not want to shake hands with. During the Biden term, I support the administration's push to minimize damage, and I believe the right person, our Sec. of State is the right person to lead the effort and help us pick the most favorable of nothing bad bad situations.
Joe talks the talk, but will he walk the walk?
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@822235,soar2newhighs] he will not
Expecting anything less from a moderate conservative neo liberal administration was self delusion.
Peapod · 56-60, F
I have been watching Joe Biden carefully and watch what he really says as oppose to relying on written media. He clearly said he is [i]not[/i] in favor of 50K forgiveness of student loans and said so in his latest town meeting. There are Democrats like Bernie Sanders that do want that, but that is not Biden's stance. He would consider 10K.
NoahB · 26-30, M
This is exactly my point. We went from absolving student debt to 50k to 10k (maybe, Biden’s got to consider it first lol) in the name of pragmatism. I seriously doubt we’ll even get the 10k. It will be means tested to death by the time it gets to us [@711251,Peapod]
James1956 · 61-69, M
He said what he had to just to get elected and now will do whatever he chooses.
[@1175,James1956] No! Not what he chooses but what he is told to do. IMO he’s mentally unfit to function in his capacity in the Oval Office. The radicals, communists pull his strings and he responds. A dangerous man.
lovelife31 · 26-30, M
Biden would say anything to get your vote. Now that he’s elected ,It’s 🖕you.
$50,000.00 forgiveness on students would cost $1Trillion dollars

Maybe Ashley Stevens doesn't know everything.
Graylight · 46-50, F
Again. The $2k was promised BY TRUMP. He paid out on $600 of it. The original plan called for $2K. Guess what the remainder amount is?

And no one ever talked about monthly checks.

But other than that, what are all the campaign promises he's broken in 30 days?
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@627992,Graylight] well that much we can agree on i guess
monte3 · 70-79, M
[@622788,SumKindaMunster] you crowed how much you liked the “real trump” and I told you why I do not. Yeah that is discussion.Your last response to me is without content 🤷‍♂️ Well besides a pathetic and unsuccessful attempt at insult. Dude grow up...
SumKindaMunster · 51-55, M
[@744413,monte3] "without content"?

What the hell are you talking about old man?

Ya know what nevermind. I doubt you know either.
MarkS · 46-50, M
Bush- no new taxes
Obama- transparency
Trump - build the wall
They all lie
[@970756,MarkS] Trump started to build the wall. But the most important thing is that he made sure the SARs-CoV-2 vax was here and deployed on his watch.
CAN PEOPLE STOP LYING? Biden is already a great president...any one who says differently is someone who thought that Trump was a great president...which means you are insane. If you think that storming the capital was a great moment in history than you are nuts...if you thought Pence should have been murdered, go get your prescriptions refilled.

I hate listening to people go on and on about presidents "that were great" when they have no concept of reality...Clinton would have been great...Reagan was horrible...The Bush family...i can't even talk about them. And i said Trump being president was going to be exciting but that he wouldn't accomplish anything...i had no idea how right i was.

Obama clearly would have been a great president if the Republicans had allowed it.
[@8638,MarkPaul] his ignorance and ego Caused it be become a pandemic. if he had closed the borders to everyone outside and stopped the precious import and export of anything...we would have mostly been free to continue our lives as they were. people wouldn't be dying left and right and not just from the actual pandemic but from the situations it created. and soon other countries would have followed
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@70398,bunny61] Unfortunately Clinton didn't win and pretending she did suggests you are following in the contaminated footsteps of Kellyanne Conway still searching for "alternative facts."

Hidin' Insurrectionist Baby-trump was inept, corrupt, and focused solely on self-interest outcomes. But, suggesting to isolate America by shutting all commerce down is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. And, Clinton never would have done anything so stupid and counter-productive.

It might be time for you to get fitted for a new tin-foil hat. The one you are currently wearing must be too tight for your enlarged head filled with an abundance of mush.
BelovedTed · 51-55, M
I'm glad he backed off on this, but I don't recall him making it a promise, but could be wrong on that. He also didn't get the Congress he wanted.
NoahB · 26-30, M
[@903658,BelovedTed] [youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSDmK7cUQx8&ab_channel=BloombergPolitics] its around the 45 second mark
BelovedTed · 51-55, M
[@960372,NoahB] Thanks, I'll check it out once I'm off this Zoom work call. 😁
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@960372,NoahB] Learn math: $600 + $1400 = $2000 from the federal government. Not from Hidin' Insurrectionist Baby-trump. Not from Joe Biden. From the federal government based on your elected representatives.
shallowwater · 22-25, M
It's bullshit how he's baiting and switching everyone. I'm never voting again I swear
monte3 · 70-79, M
You are catching on! Good. 😊[@1158,jackj]
[@579836,shallowwater] I'm voting for Trump in 24
[@579836,shallowwater] You wanted him - you got him. Deal with it.
MasterDvdC · 61-69, M
Oh course he lied. He's a politician. All politicians lie. All the time. You can't ever trust ANYTHING a politician says
It was 1400 added to 600 not another 600.
What he’s doing that I don’t agree with is sticking the minimum wage increase in with the stimulus checks.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@14748,Zebrawl] It's being pulled out.
PrincessAwesome · 18-21, F
So far he's doing exactly what I figured he would. This is why we need to elect an actual Socialist.
boudinMan · 56-60, M
[@8568,Docdon23] is your police department financed and run by the federal government? that would make it socialist.
boudinMan · 56-60, M
[@1188065,PrincessAwesome] yes, venezuela is socialist. the government seized oil and gas and other industries and promised equality for the poor. look what they got... poverty for all, except those in the government.
PrincessAwesome · 18-21, F
[@396343,boudinMan] Holy shit. Read what you wrote. The GOVERNMENT seized things.
Socialism is collective ownership. What Venezuela has is State Capitalism. The means of production are owned by the government, not the people.

You should ease up on the drinking
