On Monday, President Biden recognised that if Democrats lose control of Congress in November's midterm elections, it will be "a really challenging two years."
At a DNC fundraiser in Boston, Biden declared that if Republicans take control of Congress, he would have a terrible time getting "anything done" legislatively and that he would spend a lot more time "in the veto."
"We need to control the House and the Senate to win the race up and down the ticket." It will be an extremely challenging two years if we lose the House or the Senate. I'll be able to do more by spending more time in the veto.
Biden said that he was "optimistic" about the nation and that he thought the generation of people between the ages of 18 and 30 were "the single most engaged group."
Not because I'm the president, but rather because of the nature of where we are as a nation, he added, "I honestly am more hopeful about the prospects for America."
He pointed out that there are less than two months until the midterm elections, underscoring once more the gravity of the issues at stake, including the right to privacy, children's school safety, and the environment.
He declared, "It's about democracy itself.
He also stated that Democrats would miss the opportunity to restore Roe v. Wade, which the Supreme Court overruled in June, if they lose the election.
In addition to reiterating his support for codifying the right to an abortion, Biden predicted that if Republicans were to win the next election, they would look for methods to codify the Supreme Court's ruling making it unlawful.
And believe me when I say that you're going to see progress on a variety of other privacy-related topics, from contraception to marriage.
