Biden faces hostile Congress ahead of inauguration

President-elect Joe Biden might have crossed one of his biggest hurdles last week when the Electoral College certified the votes and cemented his victory over President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

But according to the Washington Times, Biden’s greatest challenges could be just ahead as a new session of Congress begins, with Republicans in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate ready to put up a fight against Democrats who wish to undo virtually everything Trump has accomplished for America.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is one example, saying recently that he is ready and willing to fight if Biden digs in on reversing Trump’s immigration reforms and border security measures.

“If he wants to undo border security, we’ll have a fight,” Graham said. “The question for me is, who will he respond to? Is he going to respond to the most radical elements of the Democratic Party or will he respond to more moderate voice[s] in his party?”

Of course, Graham’s question is one that the entire country is curious about. Moderate Democrats — especially in the House — have recently attacked the radical, progressive elements of the party, even blaming them for taking so many House losses in the 2020 election.

Biden claims that he’s already spoken with a number of unnamed Republican senators and signaled their willingness to work with the Biden administration on certain key issues, even predicting that as business gets underway, Trump’s “shadow” will fade away.

“I may eat these words, but I predict to you as Donald Trump’s shadow fades away, you’re going to see an awful lot change,” Biden said.

Biden’s plans of pushing through his signature legislation in his first 100 days — something that all presidential candidates tout — also depends on what happens in an upcoming Senate runoff in Georgia, where control of the upper chamber is at stake, according to the New York Times.

If Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Rev. Ralph Warnock fail to win their Senate seats and give the Senate a 50-50 split with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the tiebreaker, Biden will be the first president since George H.W. Bush to begin his term with a split government.

  5. Hands down, Apples app store wins by a mile. Its a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but Im not sure Id want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
