President Joe Biden's policies are harming the middle class, suggests Amber Athey of The American Spectator. Currently, America is grappling with an immense disruption to its supply chain, which has seriously affected the cost of living. Consumer goods and gas are rising in price and some areas even faced shortages in their food supplies. This is very harmful for working-class people who spend a larger portion of their income on such necessities. Biden should be doing more to support his constituents who are suffering financially from the current situation. For now, his presidency means higher prices and tighter belts for the working class.
President Biden has already made progress in lifting up middle-class families, writes Susan Milligan of US News. His Covid relief plan proposes direct payments to households and additional unemployment insurance, which are very popular. He has made infrastructure and jobs key parts of his platform, both of which seek to benefit middle-class Americans through increased employment. While many citizens disagree with Biden over some social issues, they recognize that his policies can lift them out of the Covid depression. Finally, his desire to ensure the upper class pays their fair share in taxes would also benefit the middle class.
