According to reports, Joe Biden is planning executive steps on police reform to coincide with Black History Month. The executive measures are still being prepared, and they will be made public about the same time that Democratic lawmakers reintroduce the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. According to CNBC, Biden plans to utilize these executive steps to criticize former President Donald Trump.
Democratic efforts to resurrect police reform after failing to keep pledges made to the party’s black voter base. A bid to combat so-called “voter suppression” by overhauling US elections at the federal level failed spectacularly this week. Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin have stated that they will oppose any Senate filibuster reforms or removal.
The Senate’s Democratic majority is uncomfortable reaching out to the minority to enact legislation. Rather than compromising, Democrats will offer many message bills that will thrill the party’s base but will eventually fail. Meanwhile, the President will rely on executive acts that appear to be doing something but cannot go too far, or they will be challenged in court and overturned, as the Biden Administration’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement was.
Moreover, Joe Biden’s popularity is plummeting. According to a Quinnipiac survey, only 33% of respondents in the United States approve of their job performance. According to the poll results, Biden is viewed as divided, with Americans disapproving of his economic management. People are more inclined to report that things are growing “worse” than “better.”
If Democrats lose in November, Joe Biden’s fantasy of having an “FDR-size president” will be realized. Biden may kiss his legislative majority goodbye if black Americans don’t vote for Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections. The only important legislation that Biden is likely to approve in the latter two years of his first term is oversized spending packages that no one likes except lobbyists.
