      “I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify unless something happens unusual in the House,” the president said.

      WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden said Monday that he did not expect Democrats to have enough votes in Congress to be able to pass legislation codifying Roe v. Wade

      Asked at a press conference in Bali, Indonesia, what Americans could expect Congress to do on abortion access, Biden said: “I don’t think they can expect much of anything other than we’re going to maintain our positions.”

      “I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify unless something happens unusual in the House,” Biden said.

      Fear monger and fundraise. Usually they don’t throw cold water on the hopes of voters less than a week after Election Day. Voters usually get more of a reprieve to at least get their hopes up that the Dems might do something about a topic which was a cornerstone of their campaign.

        But Biden has consistently shown that he’s neither smart nor caring, even when his brain is more or less working. And his sentences are consistency scrambled now:

        “unless something happens unusual in the House.”

      All abortions rights are to them is just another fund-rasing and campaign pandering tool.

      already for those who voted for Democrats in the last election.

      Just a few from the last week or so:

      Student loan forgiveness blocked (it doesn’t matter if they knew it’d fail in the courts – it sounded good during the election)
      Escalation of the war in Ukraine (Americans aren’t paying attention anymore anyway)
      FTX potential cryptocurrency / Ukraine/ Democratic fundraising corruption scandal (doesn’t matter – it’s fallen out of / censored from the news already)
      Biden saying abortion won’t pass (and is now regretting it – another post to follow)

      “We only care about our $pon$or$”. the rest of us can go suck eggs for all they care.

      Do you know why a rubber biscuit is called a rubber biscuit?

      Because, if it don’t bounce back, you go hungry!

       

      Nothing like President Soup Brain with spring-loaded rubber lips spouting out the truth again…

      Voters left them in power and they still will do nothing.
