Despite promising he would set forth to codify Roe v. Wade during the midterm elections if the Democrats could keep the House, President Biden is realizing that the Republicans have it.
Now, he won’t be able to accomplish his first promise for the midterms, and many more are soon to follow.
NBC’s Peter Alexander was able to get Biden to take a fifth and extra question during a question-and-answer period following his remarks alongside Chinese President Xi Jinping in Indonesia. Asking him about what Americans could expect for abortion rights seemed to take him by surprise, but he still answered.
“I don’t think they can expect much of anything other than we’re going to maintain our positions. I’m not going to get into more questions. I shouldn’t even have answered your question. I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify unless something happens unusual in the House. I think we’re going to get very close in the House. I think we’re going to be very close, but I don’t think we’re going to make it.”

This kind of response is likely to anger many liberals who took him at face value and voted for Democrats. The fact that the man won’t even try it, just because he knows he might not get it is a horrific answer. It is quite literally the most un-American sentiment ever uttered by a sitting president.
Then again, should we be surprised?
President Biden has been full of empty promises, just like the rest of the Democratic party. Their liberal ideas taint the voting pool, and those who are uneducated tend to grab onto his sound bites as if they are the spoken gospel.
For his die-hard supporters, they cling to the ideas he pushes like they are going to happen without any questions.
Their residency in la-la land was revoked during the Trump administration. This change of going back to reality and having to take off the rose-colored glasses sent them into a massive panic, and the US suffered greatly due to their actions of muzzling the government.
In turn, they prevented Trump from enacting his plans and effectively inhibited the progress he was making. Since then, Biden has done his best to drive the country even further into the ground.
Back in October, Biden made his great abortion promise if they could secure the House and Senate.
“The first bill I will send to the Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade. And when Congress passes it, I’ll sign it in January, 50 years after Roe was first decided the law of the land.” Much like most of his promises, that is now becoming nothing more than a faded promise, and it is indicative of the kind of Presidency his “legacy” will leave behind.
With this now stuck in a failed designation, the American people are left wondering what will happen with abortion. The Supreme Court has already overturned Roe v. Wade, thus leaving it rightly up to the states to decide for themselves.
Since then, many states have quickly put into place bans on the practice, and they have made it clear that the murder of unborn children will not be welcomed in their state.
Other states like Colorado have gone the opposite direction and are instead grabbing for the liberal vote by declaring themselves a sanctuary for abortion and abortion rights. For them, this is a no-brainer idea as the state is one of very few that fail to have any real abortion regulations.
For as picturesque as the state may be, the residents are a liberal dumpster fire for allowing this, and their politics are an incredible representation of the entire Biden presidency.
