With less than a month into Joe Biden’s term in office, the new President has already signed a wave of liberal executive orders.
Now, the true cost of Biden’s actions are starting to reveal themselves.
And you won’t believe how many jobs Biden is about to kill.
Last October, Joe Biden said the following while on the campaign trail during the 2020 Presidential Election:
“I have this strange notion, we are a democracy. If you can’t get the votes, you can’t [legislate] by executive order unless you’re a dictator. We’re a democracy. We need consensus.”
Now, less than a month into his term in office as the 46th President, Biden’s hypocrisy is shining through in a major way.
Biden has already signed more executive orders at this point in his presidency than any of the Presidents who came before him.
During his first week in office, Biden signed 37 executive orders. Compared to Donald Trump’s first week in the White House, Biden has outpaced him by 33 orders.
When looking back at even more past presidents, the true scale of Biden’s executive order spree shows itself.
Biden has also signed 32 more executive orders during his first week as President than Barack Obama did back in 2009, and 37 more than George W. Bush, who signed none during his first week in office. In President Biden’s first week alone, he has signed 37 executive orders and actions as of Thursday.
By his own admission, Biden has signed 33 more orders than the very man whom he called a “dictator” for legislating by executive orders.
Biden’s hypocrisy on executive orders has not gone unnoticed however.
In fact, Biden’s own avalanche of executive orders is drawing criticisms from even the most left-wing of news outlets in the country.
The New York Times’ editorial board recently ran a story titled: “”Ease Up on the Executive Actions, Joe”, with the Times writing, “President Biden is right to not let his agenda be held hostage, but legislating through Congress is a better path.”
But this naturally begs the question, what exactly is Biden dictating?
The most notable of his orders are direct attacks on the American economy, at a time when the country continues to struggle with a massive economic collapse brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
On his first day in office, Biden immediately threw red meat at the extreme left faction of the Democratic Party by shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline, costing 11,000 jobs in the process.
And as a sign of how extreme this action was, even Union organizations who endorsed Biden’s campaign slammed the decision, calling it an attack on American workers.
But the economic cost of Biden’s executive orders doesn’t end there.
Biden also signed an executive order forcing the United States to rejoin the Paris Climate Accords, which could impose severe economic restrictions on the United States, even while nations such as China continue to increase their greenhouse gas emissions in direct violation of the Paris agreement’s stated goal of reducing global emissions.
The economic fallout of Biden’s executive orders is still yet to be seen, but the new President has already cost the country at least 11,000 jobs thanks to the stroke of a pen, and an untold number of future jobs thanks to his capitulation to Beijing.
