Laura: Biden’s SOTU, A Fantasy Letter to Santa Claus?



In his recent State of the Union address, President Biden played the role of a generous Oprah, lavishing promises of free education, debt cancellation, healthcare, and housing. Laura Ingraham wryly observed, “It’s like he’s Oprah. ‘You get free education! You get debt canceled! You get free healthcare! And free houses!'” Yet, as the national debt balloons to a staggering $34.44 trillion, one can’t help but wonder, as Ingraham aptly puts it, “How are we paying for all this?”

Biden’s proposal to offer first-time homebuyers a tax credit of $5,000 per year for two years is touted as a boon for the middle class. However, the White House‘s vague definition of “middle class” and lack of clarity on eligibility criteria cast doubt on the plan’s effectiveness. Furthermore, the President’s call for a one-year tax credit of up to $10,000 for families selling their “starter homes” adds to the fiscal fantasy, with details remaining elusive.

According to the White House, these measures aim to lower homeownership costs and address the “lock-in” effect that deters homeowners from selling due to low mortgage rates. But with a national debt that’s skyrocketing, the question remains: can we afford these handouts?

Laura’s skepticism is well-founded when she remarks, “This isn’t a speech. It’s a letter to Santa Claus.” The President’s housing proposals, while ambitious, seem disconnected from fiscal reality. As the nation grapples with the complexities of the housing market and the mounting national debt, it’s crucial to move beyond the allure of tax credits and focus on comprehensive reforms that address the root causes of the crisis.
