House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the Biden administration is not putting Americans first. On Saturday, he argued U.S. adversaries like China are benefiting from Joe Biden’s first week in office while Americans are being placed on the back burner.
His remarks came after Biden immediately signed multiple executive orders once officially in office, most of which negatively impact Americans.
Every day for the next four years, Americans must measure policy proposals from the Biden Administration against a simple question: will it help Americans in need?
So far, there are a few that could be met with yes. But most flatly do not.

For example, McCarthy said halting such orders like the Keystone XL oil pipeline project has cut union jobs while also hurting ties with Canada.
He noted the work Republicans are doing in Congress is unifying the nation while Biden’s orders, such as citizenship to 11 million illegal immigrants, is dividing it.
Our nation’s top priorities should be getting
⇨ People back to work
⇨ Kids back to school
⇨ Vaccines to those who want them
President Biden’s priorities:
⇨ Destroying KeystoneXL jobs
⇨ Giving citizenship to illegal immigrants
⇨ Raising energy costs on American families
