Republicans Criticize White House’s ‘Talking Points’ List of Biden’s ‘Top Accomplishments’

Republican lawmakers have taken aim at a list of President Joe Biden’s “top accomplishments” that the administration says can be used “when chatting with your Uncle at Thanksgiving.”

White House deputy communications director Jennifer Molina shared the list of Biden’s so-called achievements in a post on Twitter on Wednesday.

The list states that Biden’s accomplishments include “tackling inflation and lowering costs,” citing lower gas prices since June, and the cost of living “moderating” according to The White House.

According to data from AAA, the national average is currently $3.586 per gallon, up from $3.398 a year ago. However, a number of states such as California are paying even more, with drivers in the Golden State forking out $5.113 per gallon.

Meanwhile, the average cost of the classic Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people is $64.05 this month, according to a recent Farm Bureau survey; that’s 20 percent higher compared to the 2021 average of $53.31.

Biden also “took on big pharma” according to the list of talking points, which claims that he capped annual out-of-pocket description drug costs at $2,000 for seniors on Medicare and capped insulin co-pays at $35 per description for seniors on Medicare, among other things.

The decline in costs is largely due to a decision to severely limit coverage of a controversial and pricey new Alzheimer’s drug marketed as Aduhelm.

Elsewhere, Biden “worked with Republicans to rebuild infrastructure” and to pass the Chips and Science Bill, bought Republican and Democratic lawmakers together to pass the “first meaningful gun safety legislation in 50 years,” and has also “rallied the world in defense of Ukraine” amid Russias invasion, according to the list of talking points.

The United States announced $400 million in additional military aid for Ukraine on Wednesday. Since February, the administration has sent approximately $19.7 billion in weapons and other equipment to Ukraine, including the latest aid package.

Elsewhere, the list of talking points includes a string of other “accomplishments” such as increased employment under Biden and no taxes on people making more than $400,000.
