Biden Breaks Promise On Roe V. Wade

President Joe Biden pulled back his promise to codify Roe V. Wade as his first legislative move following the midterm elections.

“The first bill I will send to Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade. And when Congress passes it, I’ll sign it in January, 50 years after Roe was first decided as the law of the land,” Biden said in October.

Following his meeting in Indonesia with Chinese President Xi Xinping, reports indicate Biden’s handlers allowed only four media questions. Four questions later and Biden looked to be on his way out until NBC News journalist Peter Alexander chimed in with a rogue fifth question.

“Mr. President what should Americans expect from Congress as it relates to abortion rights after the midterms?” he asked, likely expecting an insult in response as some of his colleagues have been greeted with in the past.

“I don’t think they can expect much of anything other than we’re going to maintain our positions. I’m not going to get into more questions. I shouldn’t even have answered your question,” said Biden before proceeding to further elaborate.

“I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify unless something unusual happens in the House. I think we’re going to get very close in the House. I think we’re going to be very close, but I don’t think we’re going to make it.”

Some experts predict that by tomorrow morning Republicans will have a slim lead of 3 seats in the House of Representatives.

The majority consensus for the 2022 midterms was Republican domination, so Biden likely never thought he’d ever have to renege on his empty promise. According to his own words he wasn’t supposed to, but we’ve come to expect the unexpected when Joe Biden takes the podium.

Roe v. Wade was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in June, allowing each state to decide the issue individually.
