Biden Commerce Secretary Nominee Suggests They Might Break a Pretty Important Campaign Promise

There has been a lot of news dropping today.

But there’s one thing that’s incredibly important not to miss.

Remember how Joe Biden insisted that he wouldn’t be raising taxes on the middle class? That ultimately his ‘plan’ was only going to hit the people making over $400,000, who needed to “pay their fair share” and you ordinary Americans weren’t going to be hit?

You knew that was a lie, right? Anyone with any sense, anyone who has been watching Democrats for years should know that was a lie. It was only just a matter of time before they admit, woefully of course, that you shouldn’t have read their lips, that all you had to do was use your common sense to know they couldn’t fund all the programs they’re talking about without touching everyone.

So now let’s look at what Biden’s Commerce Secretary nominee just admitted to, because sure as shooting, we are definitely going to be revisiting this question more in the future.

We reported on the first lie/broken campaign promise here, promising a $2000 check to people if they voted for the Democrats for Senate in Georgia.

We’re already seeing the damage that Biden’s climate policies are doing to the energy industry and by extension to all of us when the raised prices hit.

But now there’s more we can chalk up to the Democrats’ climate approach, according to Townhall.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) asks Gina Raimondo, the Commerce nominee who has also been the Governor of Rhode Island, what she thinks about raising gas taxes or other taxes on the poorest Americans in order to pay for Biden’s climate policies. So now if she’s really holding to Biden’s promises during the campaign, her response should be, “Well, we’re only going to touch the folks over $400,000,” right? But no, she goes on to say that they were going to have to “balance interests” in deciding what to do about it.

“Let me say this, I as governor am deeply in touch with how much increasing bills affect the average American family. Having said that, we do need to meet the climate change challenge and we need funds for improved infrastructure,” Raimondo said. “I would look to balance those interests.”

Sure sounds like the poorest and all the rest of us under $400,000 are about to get hit when they “balance those interests.” The folks that just lost jobs in the Biden energy executive order debacle understand now how those “interests” balanced out.
