After Abortion Advocates Helped Stop “Red Wave” Biden Says Votes Aren’t There To Codify Roe

The smart set, especially on the left, has suggested that the alleged “red wave”, due to roll in on Election Day, was blunted by liberal women insisting on keeping abortion widely available.

President Joe Biden may have just sold them out.

At a press conference in Bali, Indonesia, on Monday, Biden indicated that he expected Republicans to narrowly control the House, and thus would impede the push for a national pro-abortion law.

“I don’t think they can expect much of anything other than we’re gonna maintain our positions,” Biden said when asked about advancing “abortion rights” in the new Congress.

“I shouldn’t have even answered your question,” Biden added.

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

“I think we’re going to get very close in the House, but I don’t — I think it’s going to be very close, but I don’t think we’re going to make it.”

Before Election Day, the president had promised that his first order of business would be codified in federal law the abortion provisions that ruled the nation for nearly 50 years under the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The current court, with a conservative majority, struck down the law, sending the issue back to the states.

Many on the left reject the states’ rights argument for settling the abortion issue at the local level and keep clamoring for federal law in order to force red states to go back to living under Roe. 

Biden’s off-the-cuff admission — in response to a reporter who was not on Biden’s approved list of questioners for the press session, according to Fox News — came the same day a federal appeals court upheld a block on his student loan bailout.

That ruling was followed one day earlier by a federal judge in Texas, which is in a different appellate district, who called the bailout “unlawful” because it usurped Congress’ authority.

The nearly $500 billion bailout plan, pushed by executive order, was seen as the other main factor that galvanized Democratic voters in this election.

Yet over the weekend, Briahna Joy Gray, former press secretary for radical democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, accused Biden of a bait-and-switch.

“They used the promise of student debt cancellation to induce young voter turn out — knowing it wasn’t going anywhere bc they relied on faulty legal authority,” she tweeted. “Hard to convince me the Biden admin didn’t do this intentionally.”
