(TotalConservative.com) – Representative Jim Banks (R-IN) is frustrated with the Biden administration’s lack of action on the fentanyl crisis. On Wednesday, March 22nd, Banks tweeted that he has repeatedly asked the Biden administration for a meeting to discuss the crisis which is killing hundreds of Americans every day.
“Clearly @POTUS has different priorities,” he wrote and shared an image of Biden meeting with the cast of Ted Lasso, a comedy created by Jason Sudeikis that airs on Apple+.
Biden clearly doesn’t believe the fentanyl crisis is his problem, he’s been blaming it on the previous administration. Not only that, but he thinks the deaths of two American boys is a laughing matter. When their mother testified before Congress to tell the tale of how her two boys were killed by fentanyl marketed as Percocet, Rep. Majorie Taylor Green (R-GA) blamed Joe Biden.
Speaking of the failure of the government, she lamented the impact on children and young people who mistakenly ingest the drug. When Joe Biden brought the matter up for discussion at the House Democratic Issues Caucus Conference in Baltimore, on March 1st, he cracked a joke and blamed Trump.
“Well, the interesting thing is that the fentanyl they took came during the last administration,” he said while chuckling. In typical Biden fashion, everything that goes wrong is the last administration’s fault. Many folks lamented Biden’s comments and clapped back with criticism on social media, but Biden is well-insulated from that kind of criticism by his handlers.
As recently as this week, border agents seized over 900 pounds of fentanyl, which is enough to kill a third of the U.S. population. Advocates of cracking down on the drug, call deaths “related poisonings” as many don’t know they’re taking fentanyl at the time, believing mistakenly that they’re ingesting something else. For now, they’re classified as overdoses, and as of 2021, we had over 106 thousand deaths by overdose, 2/3rds of which were caused by fentanyl and other synthetic opioids.
Biden’s too busy hanging out with celebrities to speak with Congressmen about it though.
