President Biden tweeted, “The recent elections made an emphatic statement that in America, the will of the people prevails.”
But was it the will of Millennials and Gen-Z voters to be bamboozled by Team Biden and the Democratic Party? American voters were bribed by Biden. Hopes for a red wave of Republican victories on Election Day were shattered by the 28% advantage that voters in the 18-29 age group delivered to Democratic candidates. Two days after the election, Biden tweeted, “I want to thank the young people of this nation” who voted for “student debt relief.” Jon Cooper, a former top Biden campaign operative, tweeted, “Young people: You saved our butts. THANK YOU.” Legions of young voters were energized to support Democrats by Biden’s Aug. 24 announcement that he was forgiving up to $20,000 of student debt per person, which would cost taxpayers $400 billion-plus. Biden new he could not deliver.
While the votes that 20-somethings delivered are irrevocable, Biden’s student debt relief is contingent on federal court approval. And his bailout is being shot to pieces in courtrooms across the nation. Two days after the election, federal judge Mark Pittman struck down the bailout as an unconstitutional decree: “In this country, we are not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone. Instead, we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government.” Pittman rejected the “emergency” basis of the order in part because Biden had proclaimed on “60 Minutes” that “the pandemic is over.” Democrats responded by vilifying Judge Pittman. Sen. Elizabeth Warren denounced the “lawless ruling from a Trump-appointed judge.” So any judge who doesn’t recognize that presidents are entitled to boundless power is “lawless”?
