Both Sides Joe Is at It Again!
It isn’t a secret to anyone that politicians will typically say anything to get elected. They will also say whatever it is the voter wants to hear, all for the sake of winning votes. Some candidates, however, have made an art form of this common political rhetoric and spin that we so often hear this time of year. One recent story is a prime example of the master, Joe Biden, in action, who not only says what the voter wants to hear but what voters on both sides want to hear! Yeah, he is sneaky like that.
According to our story, the front running Democratic candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to do just that on the immigration issue. In particular, the divide between those wanting to promote immigration and those who fear increased immigration is quite evident in the arena of business and employment. While big business seems to have no issue with using immigration-based workforces, for obvious reasons, the American workforce as a whole isn’t so receptive.
Of course, for many a candidate, this would pose a problem. This issue would normally require that a side be chosen, or in the best-case scenario that the issue be skirted and never truly addressed. This is Joe Biden we are talking about though, and he is fluent in politicianese, some might even say a savant. Point and case is the example in our aforementioned story.
Part of the master’s plan, as the story reported said, “Biden will work with Congress to first reform temporary visas to establish a wage-based allocation process and establish enforcement mechanisms to ensure they are aligned with the labor market and not used to undermine wages… Then, Biden will support expanding the number of high-skilled visas and eliminating the limits on employment-based visas by country, which create unacceptably long backlogs,” both sides, see?
In a beautiful display of using long worded terminologies that are vague and often complex, like “wage-based allocation process” or “enforcement mechanisms” Biden said little and fed everyone. Our story aptly called this part of his plan’s address, “Biden’s zig-zag immigration manifesto…” which the story went on to point out, “… is trying to win support from the wealthy investors who gain from more college graduate immigrants yet also trying to win back the swing-voting college graduates who sided with Donald Trump in 2016.”
Although we shouldn’t be surprised that any lifetime and career politician can talk the talk, but this guy is good. And as our story said, “the Biden zig-zag is found throughout his plan for expanding legal immigration, which annually delivers one million legal immigrants as four million young Americans get their first full-time jobs. Biden promises more green cards for India’s growing population of U.S.-based workers. The roughly 750,000 Indian workers are hired by U.S. investors to replace American graduates, but Biden promised paperwork to protect Americans from the lower-wage Indians.”
Yes, it is just more of the same. Somehow, this master politician is going to fuel businesses with more skilled foreign workers but protect American jobs and American workers.
The point of contrast between how President Trump operates and how typical politicians like Joe Biden work can’t be overstated here. As the story stated, “Trump’s deputies are also protecting the fraud-ridden Optional Practical Training program that annually gives work permits to 300,000 foreign graduates of U.S. colleges so they can compete against for jobs against the 800,000 Americans who graduate with skilled degrees.”
That is pro-American, it is definitive and it is in direct contrast to Biden’s plan of feeding big business while making promises to protect the very employees your plan will hurt. Sometimes it simply comes down to making a decision, it is what we expect our leaders to do. Sometimes those can also be tough decisions.
The only thing we demand from these decisions is that they are made for the good of America, for our economy, and our workers. Of course, if you ask both sides Joe, he will tell you that he is all about America – if that’s what you want to hear.
