Joe Biden’s Achievements

Written by admin on June 18th, 2020

You will be seeing the same people who have failed at every chance to name Mr. Trump’s accomplishments while in the White House now demanding a list of Joe Biden’s accomplishments.  They know that with such a long career that there are so many accomplishments to name that it becomes just as difficult as it is to name those that Trump has yet to achieve!  There are also some accomplishments done in Biden’s earlier years that don’t seem that Progressive today and the Right wants to use those to divide and deny those votes going to Joe Biden.  With that, there are many accomplishments which we will try to list here.

In 1969, Biden ran to represent the 4th district on the New Castle County Council with a liberal platform that included support for public housing in the suburban area. He won by 2,000 votes in the usually Republican district and a bad year for Democrats in the state. He served on the County Council from 1970 to 1972 while continuing his private law practice.

In 1972 Joe Biden ran against Republican incumbent Senator J. Caleb Boggs.  Biden’s campaign had almost no money and was given no chance of winning. His campaign focused on withdrawal from Vietnam; the environment; civil rights; mass transit; more equitable taxation; health care; the public’s dissatisfaction with politics as usual; and “change”.  During the summer, he trailed by almost 30 percentage points, but his energy level, his attractive young family, and his ability to connect with voters’ emotions gave him an advantage over the ready-to-retire Boggs. Biden won the November 7 election by 3,162 votes.

Biden was sworn into office on January 5, 1973, at age 30 (the minimum age required to hold the office), Biden became the sixth-youngest senator in U.S. history, and one of only 18 who took office before turning 31.  During his first years in the Senate, Biden focused on consumer protection and environmental issues and called for greater government accountability.

If you click on the links you will be able to find out what the bill was about.  Keep in mind that this is not all that the Former Vice President did, for he was on committees as a Senator.  If you want a full understanding of Joe Biden’s successes and failures read Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Biden  Also remember that all of President Obama’s accomplishments,  Joe had a hand in.  You can see a list of those achievements at http://www.free-fire-zone.com/post/400-accomplishments-of-president-obama-8318286?
