President Joe Biden and the Democratic majority in Congress seem to believe they received a mandate in the 2020 election. They seem to be empowered to fundamentally change the country by implementing big-government social welfare and inefficient green energy programs by spending a lot of the taxpayers’ money now and into the future to pay for a bunch of “free stuff.” They are also adopting policies that will harm pharmaceutical research and development, as well as generic and biosimilar manufacturing, which will move the country further toward government-run healthcare.
The results of November’s elections in New Jersey, New York, Virginia, and other states made it clear the American people reject these proposals to increase the size, scope, and power of the government. Voters also believe Biden and the Democrats have caused the highest inflation in 30 years, supply shortages, excessive gas prices, and increased crime. That is why smaller government won, and big government lost.
