McCarthy: Voters who expected ‘moderate’ Biden got something else entirely

During last year’s presidential primary race, many Democrats coalesced around then-candidate Joe Biden as a moderate alternative to self-described socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

But according to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) voters who thought they would get moderation in Biden are getting something else entirely.

“If I look at the 100 days, it’s more like a bait-and-switch,” McCarthy told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday.

McCarthy explained that Biden has done nothing in the way of bipartisan outreach, saying, “I have not met with the president one time, nor had one conversation.”

Radical infrastructure bill

The congressman took particular issue with the contents of Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure bill and how the term “infrastructure” is being defined in the legislation.

“Less than 6% in the infrastructure goes to infrastructure,” he said, adding that he has seen no willingness from Democrats to compromise on what belongs in the bill.

“Republicans would be the first one that would work with him, but I think the very first thing we would need to do [is] define what infrastructure is: roads, bridges, airports, Broadcom? We would get this done,” McCarthy insisted.

“But I think when America found out that just 6% is going to the roads, that they’re not going to be built for more than a decade, that we spend more on subsidizing electric cars than roads, bridges, and airports in this bill, I don’t think that’s going to be popular,” he added.

“Faustian bargain” to become nominee

McCarthy is not the only one to assert that Biden has adopted a far more extreme agenda than what he sold to the American people during his campaign.

The Hoover Institute’s Dr. Victor Davis Hanson made a similar argument in an op-ed piece he wrote for Fox News in February.

“On almost every issue — open borders, blanket amnesties, canceling the Keystone XL pipeline, promoting the Green New Deal, and hard-left appointees — Biden is touting positions that likely do not earn 50 percent public support,” Hanson wrote.

“When Biden made a Faustian bargain with his party’s hard-left wing of Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to win the election, he took on the commitment to absorb some of their agenda and to appoint their ideologues,” he added.

  1. Biden is like a Drunk Driver hits an oncoming car but yet he blames the other Driver, even though there is evidence he is guilty ( kind of like Hunter) the joke of the Century. Trump, he did everything the best he could but Biden destroying the best he can. We need to take OVER the Congress & Senate then bombard the Presidency with Votes from Hell from Republicans. I did not vote last time because Trump was the Winner but Cheaters seem to cast their own Votes instead. Hopefully Mike Lindell can prove this guy now, is nothing but a Fake, because the Real President hasn’t taken Office Yet.

  2. In just his first 100 days in office Joe Biden is the worst president the United States Of America has ever had. He cares nothing about the American people. IMPEACH!!!

  4. In our 200-year national history, we have survived several notably INCOMPETENT Presidents….but BIDEN gives the word (incompetent) a “bad name”!! I sincerely hope the people who voted for “good ole Joe” are ashamed of themselves!!! He (and his cohorts) will succeed in ruining our wonderful (flaws and all) nation!!! God help us…….

  5. Biden destroyed alot of America in his first 100 days. He did nothing good. All he accomplished was to have people wanting to impeach him!!

  6. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  7. I feel my rights and liberties are under attack? Legally, what can we do about that? If the dems can impeach President Trump why can the Reps impeach Joe Bidden and Harris for what is taken place on the bordor. Kamala Harris refuses to do her job and get involved. She needs to be impeached and fired from her position.

  8. Pedo Joe is just a place holder till Democraps get enough evidence to remove him from office. I figured they would do it either before or on Inauguration Day. See they don’t want Pedo Joe they want the Ho in power. What Pedo Hoe is doing is like ripping a band aid off. He is giving everyone a taste of live under the Ho and Democraps before it happens so they will know what to expect.

  9. Joe’s got to go!
    He is certainly impeachable in every way- he is incompetent, incoherent, unable to speak without a teleprompter, is siding with our enemies, going vs our best allies, ruining our economy, letting illegals in w/o COVID testing, not talking with republicans, and so on. He and she gotta go- don’t care how and who gets hurt. His whole family is a disgusting train wreck of illegality. Anyone who supports him needs a lobotomy.
