Biden will attack Trump on riot and pandemic in speech to Congress

Biden will attack Trump on riot and pandemic in speech to Congress”

President Joe Biden is marking his 100th day in office with a prime-time address to Congress and he's declaring that the United States is "turning peril into possibility".

"He is a big-government Democrat, and he has not been at all reluctant to propose big initiatives in a response to a national crisis", said Julian Zelizer, a Princeton University presidential historian.

US President Joe Biden said Wednesday he was not seeking conflict with China or Russian Federation as he put a renewed focus on diplomacy in his first address to Congress.

The tax reform plan also seeks to close the carried interest provision so that hedge fund partners will pay ordinary income rates on their income and reverse numerous tax cuts changes in the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. "75% don't require an associate's degree".

And he'll try to build popular support for police reform, gun control and immigration proposals that have languished on Capitol Hill.

'Now, I know some of you at home wonder whether these jobs are for you.

"I also told President Xi that we will maintain a strong military presence in the Indo-Pacific just as we do with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in Europe - not to start a conflict but to prevent one", Biden said to applause.

"I made very clear to Putin that we are not going to seek escalation but their actions will have consequences", Biden said. Should disaster befall the highly secure building during Biden's speech, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen would be next in line to take over.

That is a continuation of a tough stance implemented by former President Donald Trump's administration, where it launched what was characterized as a trade war against China as a means to encourage economic reform.

He'll also hit Biden for the slow pace of USA school reopenings - a potential political vulnerability for Democrats, as teachers' unions allied with their party have been blamed by many parents and Republican lawmakers for keeping children in remote learning. The coronavirus is on the run!' scott will say.

In doing so, he has followed through on a promise to provide support to Americans via stimulus checks, funding for schools to implement safety measures and reopen, small business funding, and money for vaccinations, testing and contact tracing.

US President Joe Biden will give a sunny and ambitious message to the joint session of Congress. But Wednesday's will be unlike any in the nation's past.

A few dozen lawmakers milled about the House chamber not long before Biden's speech, and a reduced crowd of about 200 is expected. Pelosi limited the number of attendees for the event to around 200 people on the advice of medical experts, less than a fifth of the normal attendance.

According to the Washington Post, Chief Justice John Roberts will be the only Supreme Court member in attendance, while Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will represent the military.

Biden, who has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, will wear a mask when he walks down the center aisle but not be required to wear a mask while speaking.

As a candidate, Biden promised to change that, but he has yet to submit legislation to Congress.

Already, Republicans are attacking his infrastructure and family spending plans as too costly and assailing Biden's plans to raise taxes on corporations and the wealthiest of Americans.

Overall, the polls showed a range of 52-58 percent of U.S. adults who say they approve of the job Biden is doing, compared with 39-42% who say they disapprove.

But Republicans are solidly opposed to Medicare negotiations, and some Senate Democrats have qualms.

In his first three months in office, Biden signed a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill - passed without a single GOP vote - and has shepherded direct payments of $1,400 per person to more than 160 million households.
