Jill Biden Makes an Inconvenient Admission and Shows Her Disconnect – RedState

Jill Biden traveled to Kansas to visit a school for the Latino community. Participating in what she repeatedly described as a “charla,” which is simply Spanish for “chat,” the First Lady made a rather inconvenient admission, at least insofar as her husband’s administration goes.

Jill Biden spoke out about the dominant views on government and admitted many people have negative opinions.

This is not groundbreaking material on its own. Obviously, many people don’t like the government, but what I found most interesting about Jill Biden’s comments is that she believes all this is simply a messaging problem, and I think such a view speaks to a larger philosophical battle at play.

Perhaps the most pervasive delusion on the left is the idea that people love their policies but that they just aren’t aware of them. It was clear to see this in the Obamacare debate, which took place a decade back. This is where taxpayers spent millions of dollars to enhance the Affordable Health Care Act’s image. The false assumption that people need more information to love the Democrat vision was the reason the effort failed.

That’s never been true, though. The reason government is viewed so negatively is that the government is a soul-sucking leech that steals peoples’ money to blow it on utopian ideals that never pan out. Jill Biden fails to see this when she says that the Biden administration needs other people to communicate its message. People aren’t happy with what is happening.

No one cares about the American Rescue Plan or the president’s Build Back Better propaganda when they are paying $4.00 a gallon for gas and their grocery bill has risen precipitously because of inflation. They don’t care about those things when the stock market continues to tumble and their investments along with it. The way people are actually affected is what determines how the government affects them. Americans now see a big, fat government that spends their money on useless programs that don’t really provide any benefits. All the while, politicians, including Jill Biden herself, preen for the cameras and take credit for things they didn’t do.

Jill Biden’s statement here, in light of this reality is quite gross. Demeaning is the assumption that citizens are too ignorant to recognize the immense power and potential of government. It’s also insulting, in that refuses to just admit the real problem — that the federal government is an inefficient dumpster fire responsible for many of the nation’s ills. That dictates that the prescription is certainly not more big government, but that’s exactly what the Biden administration keeps pushing.

Jill Biden receives points for honesty but loses points for failing to find the solution.
