The continued endeavors of the Biden administration are only showing that partisanship, rather than bipartisanship, is the ultimate priority of the current president. Biden continues to pass various executive actions that are mainly designed to undo the work of the Trump administration.
Despite Biden meeting with Republicans on a COVID-19 relief package, he’s instructed Senate Democrats to proceed with his chosen spending plan. The 46th president additionally has yet to show any real displays of compromise with Republicans in Washington.
These actions are of the president’s doing; however, his aides in the White House certainly play a role. This explains why Biden aides are now facing criticism, confirms Breitbart News.
Pushback Against the Biden Administration
The criticism against aides working for the 46th president interestingly enough comes from a Democrat.
Yesterday, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin professed that Biden is being “led wrong” by his advisors. The moderate Democrat then stated that the “strictly partisan direction” of Biden’s presidency isn’t leading towards any bipartisan deals. Manchin, despite making these statements during an interview with Politico, still voted for a leftist budget resolution for Biden’s spending package.

The West Virginia Democrat has touted himself as the most bipartisan senator, expressing opposition towards minimum wage increases and a few other traditionally leftist reforms.
More to Come from the Biden White House
Biden and his aides are in support of a series of far-left policies. Some the president intends to pass via executive order, others will go through Congress. So long as the Democrat Party controls both the Senate and the House, they will have a much easier time getting things passed, even without GOP votes.
Right now, the 46th president is openly supportive of raising the minimum wage, erasing student loan debt, increasing regulations on businesses, and more. The Biden administration has also made quite clear that they’re not going to work with Republicans.

The only way this will change is if the power in Congress shifts; once the GOP gets either the Senate or the House back, Democrats will no longer be able to bulldoze their legislation into effect. Until then, however, Republicans will have their work cut out, to say the least.
