President Joe Biden’s recent remarks about Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene calling him a “liar” during his State of the Union address have sparked controversy among conservatives. While Biden attempted to make light of the situation, it is clear that he is using this as an opportunity to push his own agenda and demonize the Republican party.
Biden began his Tuesday remarks on affordable health care by referencing the reaction he got from Republicans when he claimed that “some Republicans want Medicare and Social Security to sunset” in his State of the Union speech. He then did the sign of the cross as the audience laughed and said, “I’m going to be good. I’m going to be good,” holding up his hand.

The President then continued to address the exchange, saying that when he asked Republicans to join him in rejecting cuts to Medicare, they all stood up. He then mentioned Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott proposing to revisit all federal legislation, including Social Security and Medicare, every five years. Scott has recently walked back his proposal, saying it wouldn’t apply to Social Security or Medicare.
It is clear that President Biden is using this incident as a way to push his own agenda and demonize the Republican party. He is attempting to paint Republicans as wanting to cut Medicare and Social Security, which is simply not true. Republicans have made it clear that they are not in favor of cutting these programs, yet Biden continues to make these false claims in order to push his own agenda.
Furthermore, Biden’s comment about Senator Scott’s proposal was misleading and disingenuous. Senator Scott has clarified that his proposal would not apply to Social Security or Medicare, yet Biden continues to use this as an opportunity to attack the Republican party. This is a clear example of partisan politics at its worst and shows how far President Biden is willing to go in order to push his own agenda.
It is clear that President Biden is using this incident as a way to push his own agenda and demonize the Republican party. By making false claims about Republicans wanting to cut Medicare and Social Security, and by misrepresenting Senator Scott’s proposal, Biden is engaging in a dangerous form of political rhetoric that only serves to divide the country further. This type of behavior is unacceptable and should not be tolerated from any leader, regardless of political affiliation.
