Over the last several years, the quality of life within the United States has markedly deteriorated. While it is no secret that the American middle class has been slowly shrinking for decades, the governing decisions made by President Joe Biden and his administration following his victory during the 2020 election and his commencement of service in January of 2021 have further exacerbated this decline. Biden and congressional politicians from both parties wholly supported massive spending packages that were authorized early in Biden’s term and brought about trillions of dollars in federal spending and inflation that followed with it. Now, 6 out of every 10 American citizens are living paycheck to paycheck, and the cost of living has skyrocketed.
Biden’s biggest mistake has been at the southern border. Millions of illegals have entered the nation in just three years. Tens of thousands continue to enter by the day, and the federal government appears unable to mitigate the effects of this migration or properly address the issue. The national security of the nation is at a serious risk. This unsustainable pattern of migration also largely has contributed to the poor state of the middle class, as they provide cheap, unskilled labor sources for businesses and help to keep wages stagnant. While the cost of living continues to rise, the working class continues to suffer due to the problems that have been allowed to exacerbate by the national government.
Recently, the U.S. Head of the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas blamed Texas Governor Greg Abbot for “refusing to cooperate” with Mayors of major leftist cities in the country. Abbot has been having busloads of migrants sent to the cities in protest of the progressive immigration policies that continue to help this crisis to worsen. Conservatives have felt that by sending migrants to cities that traditionally vote for progressive policies that have caused the crisis to escalate, a message would be sent.
