President Biden is going to increase his administrative actions next year if he wants his agenda to progress even with a divided Congress. Biden has issued several executive orders during his time in the White House. The most notable of these was the student loan forgiveness plan, but pressure has now been increasing from groups who are calling for changes in worker’s rights, marijuana reform, and climate change.
Advocates have also been saying that Biden is going to need to proceed following the results of the midterm and tackle many of the issues he campaigned for in 2020 if he wants to have a chance in the 2024 presidential election regardless of the assistance that he will get from a GOP-controlled House.
Deirdre Shelly, campaigns director for the Sunrise Movement said that President Biden would need to really utilize his executive power during the next Congress if he wants to deliver for young people. This would mean canceling student loan debt, tackling the climate crisis, and even expediting the transition toward clean and renewable energy. He would also need to take actions that would help better the lives of the majority of people across the country.
