In a stunning moment of bipartisanship, President Joe Biden used the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday to call for the release of wrongfully detained Americans abroad. But what really caught our attention was how he shamelessly tied this call for justice to his tax reform agenda.
It’s no secret that Biden and his fellow Democrats have been pushing for tax reform since day one of his presidency. They want to make sure that the wealthy pay their fair share and that middle-class families get the relief they need. And now, the president is using detained journalists and citizens as pawns in his political game.
Make no mistake, we’re all for the release of innocent Americans being held captive in foreign countries. But it’s disingenuous for Biden to use their plight as a way to push his partisan tax agenda. It’s a cheap political stunt, and it’s not fair to the families and loved ones of those who are suffering overseas.
In his speech, Biden also took shots at Elon Musk, and made jokes about his age. But what’s not funny is how he’s trying to manipulate the public into supporting his tax reform agenda by tying it to a very serious issue. We deserve better than this from our elected leaders.
We call on President Biden to stop playing political games with the lives of innocent Americans. Let’s work together to ensure that those who are wrongfully detained are freed, without trying to use their suffering as leverage for partisan policies.
