White House claps back at Marjorie Taylor Greene criticising efforts to help American families

Although Georgia Republican Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene tried to criticize President Joe Biden by comparing his programs to those of Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson, the White House took it as a compliment.

“Caught us. President Biden is working to make life easier for hardworking families,” the official White House account tweeted.

Rep Greene outlined President Johnson’s programmes, called The Great Society, which addressed “education, medical care, urban problems, rural poverty, transportation, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and welfare,” as well as the Office of Economic Opportunity and labor unions.

While Johnson had The Great Society, Joe Biden has Build Back Better, Ms Greene said, describing it as: “The largest public investment in social infrastructure and environmental programs that is actually finishing what FDR started that LBJ expanded on.”

“And Joe Biden is attempting to complete socialism,” Ms Greene continued.

“Marjorie Taylor Greene thought her recent speech was an attack on ⁦POTUS⁩. It’s actually a huge compliment,” California Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu chimed in.

New York Democratic Congressman Ritchie Torres also reacted: “Marjorie Taylor Greene, a recovering member of the House Freedom Caucus, has accused President Biden and Congressional Democrats of ‘trying to finish what FDR started.’” He added, “Yes! We are guilty as charged.”

Rep Greene criticized President Biden’s investments, saying the US is “now $32 trillion in debt with record high homelessness, 40 year record inflation. We’re losing the US Dollar as the number one world currency. We’re losing our freedoms. Our government is one big fat bloated machine and it’s killing the American dream.”
