Former Vice President Joe Biden has made an attempt to appear moderate when compared with the rest of the 2020 Democrats. This comes at a time when Biden needs to set himself apart as the front runner. The field is narrowing quickly and elections are fast approaching.
We’ve written about the radial proposals of the left in the past. Some of those include radical tax plans from Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen Bernie Sanders. Now, Biden feels the need to get into the mix with a radical tax plan of his own. It will only cost taxpayers nearly $1 trillion over 10 years.
Biden’s tax plan takes aim at corporations and high income earners. The plan is designed to help pay for healthcare, climate, infrastructure and education. Biden has been touting the plan at campaign stops as can be seen in the video below.

The problem is, just like the other far left candidates, Biden does not take into account the reality of the things he is proposing. His tax proposals are widely radical and his statements very misleading. You really have to consider all the details, rather than simply the talking points that sound good from these Democrats.
Take the above video for example. Biden says he can invest billions into rail, to reduce oil usage by tens of millions of barrels. Unfortunately, this does nothing to put a dent into the nations oil usage. In 2017, the US consumed just under 20 million barrels of oil daily. No doubt we are over 20 million now, for a total of nearly 8 billion barrels. Sure, we could probably do something to decrease our dependence on oil, but the cost to actually make an effect will be extravagant.
Biden has really kicked up his rhetorical talk regarding “no malarkey” or no nonsense. But there’s issues with his comments. He consistently panders with baseless points. For example, he made the statement below. Pay and benefits are at the discretion of the employer and associated contracts, but sexual harassment is already a protected issue.
Every worker deserves fair wages, good benefits, and protections from sexual harassment. I’m proud to stand in solidarity with @hgsuuaw. I urge the university to negotiate in good faith to secure a fair contract with good health care benefits.

Perhaps, we look at his comments about a climate change emergency. The left continues to live in the path of a climate change emergency when there simply is no proof of this.
If we don’t take urgent action to address the climate emergency, our planet may never recover. We must get the climate change denier out of the White House and tackle this crisis head-on. https://t.co/8zcoWXwKIY

Grandpa Joe continues to show how far left he is willing to pander. He wants to appear moderate with a tax plan that will not go as far as Warrens, yet the results are the same. Failed economic policies that will destroy our economy. The Democrats suggest we cannot afford 4 more years of Trump. But I suggest we cannot afford a single day of their radial socialist agenda.
