Why Joe Biden isn’t going to be bad as you think

I don’t want to get political on here, but after dealing with my family, I feel like I need to tell you why Joe Biden isn’t going to be as bad as you think.

  1. You’re going to get your tax deductions back. Oh I’ve heard this a thousand times, “Trump lowered taxes!” No. He. Did. Not. Just because your take-home pay was larger doesn’t mean your taxes went down! If you lose tax deductions, your taxes went up. Guess what happened to me? I lost nearly all my tax deductions! The only reason why I didn’t owe the IRS money the last 3 years was because of my student loan interest. And since student loan interest has been suspended for the majority of 2020, I suspect I may have to owe the tax man this year. I am hoping that getting married and it being retroactive back to the beginning of the year will help but I’m not counting on it.
  2. If you make less than $400,000 per year, you won’t see a tax increase. I don’t know why we coddle the rich – and the rich just hoard money anyways. Every time a Republican says “I’m lowering taxes so that business owners will be able to reinvest” is a farce. They don’t give two shits about anyone under them and so they hoard the money. They don’t spend it.
  3. COVID needs a real leader at the helm. Sorry, but Mike Pence’s “we’ve tried nothing and we’re all out of ideas” is a pathetic excuse. All Trump & Co has done is cause “COVID-fatigue”. That is, because they’ve stopped caring, the country as a whole has stopped caring, an as such is why we’re surpassing 100k new infections daily and well over 1,000 deaths per day. Wear a fucking mask – you do it for Halloween, you do it in the winter, you can do it to prevent the spread of COVID.
  4. He can actually talk in complete and coherent thoughts. I know, this seems radical. But after listening and reading spilled alphabet soup on a highway, it is music to my ears to listen to someone complete a sentence.
  5. No you’re not “losing freedoms”. This one also gets me. For eight years I heard that “Obama is going to take muh guns!” and to this day, you can still buy guns. You can still own them. You can’t own a nuke, but I don’t hear people complaining about that (it is an “arm” after all).

Oh, and, since I heard it in November 2016, President-Elect Biden is your president. Deal with it.
