Utah Senator Mitt Romney said on Sunday that American voters offered a mixed message this week, oust President Donald trump for the elected president Joe biden, but bring enough Republicans back to the Senate to prevent a Democratic turnaround while the GOP scooped up seats in the House of Representatives.
Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, told Chuck Todd NBC News ‘Meet the Press’ that if Americans clearly wanted a change in leadership in the White House, “we’re not going to take a sharp left turn in public policy.”
“I think people are saying that conservative principles still represent a majority of public opinion in our country,” Romney said. “I don’t think they want to sign up for a Green New Deal. I don’t think they want to sign up to get rid of coal, oil, or gas. I don’t think they’re interested in Medicare for all the taxes or for higher taxes that would slow the economy. “
Romney, who has called Trump “fake” and has frequently criticized the president over the past four years, described Biden as a “man of character” who wants “to bring honor and respect to the White House,” which is ” important here and around the world. “
Romney argued that the longtime Delaware senator was well aware that “there are two parties and things need to be done on a bipartisan basis.” (Biden) has indicated he wants to work on a bipartisan basis. We are ready to do it.
If Biden follows the “extreme wing” of the Democrats, Romney warned, “I think he will fail.”
Biden, a longtime moderate who has worked with progressives like Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on economic and environmental policy proposals, called for moving away from fossil fuels and creating millions of jobs in technology and renewable energy, expanding the Affordable Care Act without eliminating private insurance, dramatically expanding child care programs and stepping up efforts to address COVID-19[female[feminine pandemic.
He and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris say they will not raise taxes for anyone who earns less than $ 400,000.
“I pledge to be a president who does not seek to divide, but to unify,” Biden said in a speech Saturday night. “Who doesn’t see the red and blue states, but the United States. And who will work with all my heart to gain the trust of all the people.
