Democrat President Joe Biden faced intense backlash over the speech he delivered to Congress on Wednesday night with many critics calling it extreme, full of false statements, and divisive.
Here are some of the highlights:
Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a key GOP swing vote, says of Biden’s speech: “I was not overly inspired.” She also said that there was too much spending, and of pushing such massive proposals: “I think it makes it very difficult for it to be truly bipartisan.”

Biden: “we the people are the government”
Americans: “Wait. What? No. That’s not how this works!
We the people are protected by the Constitution FROM the government.

After this Biden speech that charts the course for Democrats, I’d be blown away if 2022 wasn’t a bloodbath for Democrats. This could be a historically high backlash.
