Joe Biden’s first week in office was a certified disaster.
It began with his horrendous inaugural speech and only flew farther off the rails from there.
And then Ted Cruz humiliated Joe Biden with this devastating question.
Biden’s handlers put forth the completely unqualified Pete Buttigieg as Biden’s nominee for transportation secretary.
Buttigieg’s only experience with transportation was playing a board game where you collect trains and routes across America.
Ted Cruz showed how out of his depth Buttigieg—and by extension the Biden administration—iswhen he grilled Buttigieg over Biden’s anti-American and job-killing decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline.
The Keystone Pipeline was expected to create 11,000 good-paying jobs that Biden—who reads lines fed to him about how much he cares about the working-class—erased with the stroke of a pen.
It was disconcerting to see yesterday, the first day of the Biden administration, straight out of the gate, President Biden announced that he was canceling the Keystone Pipeline. That is a major infrastructure project. That is a project that right now today has 1,200 good-paying union jobs and in 2021, the Keystone Pipeline was scheduled to have more than 11,000 jobs, including 8,000 union jobs for contracts worth $1.6 billion dollars, and with the stroke of a pen, President Biden has told those 11,000 workers — those union workers — your jobs are gone.
Mr. Buttigieg, what do you say to those workers whose jobs have just been eliminated by presidential edict?
Buttigieg—who is a former McKinsey consultant so he knows a thing or two about killing jobs—had no idea how to respond to questions about creating jobs.
Instead, the former South Bend Mayor fell back on party slogans about “climate change” and the “destruction of life.”
Because of this so-called “crisis,” Buttigieg claimed energy industry workers could just find other jobs.
“I think one of the most important things is to make sure that we make good on the promise of the president’s climate vision as being one that, on net, creates far more jobs, millions, we hope.
“I know that won’t just happen. We’ll have to do a lot of work to make sure that’s real, but getting this right means ensuring that there are more good-paying union jobs for all Americans delivered through that infrastructure vision.”
Cruz quickly shot this nonsense down.
The Texas Senator pointed out that these displaced workers could not find new jobs because the socialist and anti-competitive regulatory schemes the Biden administration planned to impose would kill off sectors of the economy one by one.
“Well, I fear that decision is the front end of a whole series of regulatory decisions — one after the other after the other — that will be eliminating union jobs, that will be eliminating manufacturing jobs, that will be eliminating energy jobs, and that is altogether out of step with what the American people want,” Cruz added.
In his first week in office Biden betrayed every campaign promise he made.
Biden sold out America by rejoining the Paris Global Warming Accords that amount to a massive giveaway to the Communist Chinese government by restricting United States economic growth.
In addition, Biden betrayed American workers by throwing open the borders to illegal aliens by pausing deportations and promising blanket amnesty which only invite a further flood of illegals that will drive down the wages of middle-class Americans.
Finally Joe Biden killed thousands of new jobs by placating the radical environmental lobby and nominating unqualified political hacks that can’t even articulate how the Biden administration plans to assist these distressed and displaced workers.
