Biden's 51-Year Government Career Marked by Failures, Inefficiency

President Joe Biden's 51-year government career has come under intense scrutiny as he faces mounting criticism over failures such as the border crisis, the Afghanistan withdrawal, and rising national debt. Economist Ed Stringham argues that the inefficiency plaguing Biden's administration is an inherent feature of government, stemming from a lack of competition and misaligned bureaucratic incentives.

Why this matters: The effectiveness of government institutions and the ability of career politicians to address complex challenges have far-reaching implications for the well-being of citizens and the stability of the nation. The consequences of inefficient governance can lead to widespread suffering, economic instability, and erosion of trust in institutions.

The Biden Border Crisis has been described as an "unmitigated disaster" by Zack Smith, Senior Legal Fellow at The Heritage Foundation. "If someone tried to design an ideal scenario to allow human trafficking, drug trafficking, and other criminal activities to flourish, they would have a hard time improving on the current situation at our Southern Border," Smith stated.

The crisis has spread far beyond border states, impacting urban cities and rural Indian reservations across the country. These communities often lack sufficient law enforcement resources and face complex jurisdictional issues, leaving them vulnerable to the influx of crime. Organized criminal groups, especially Mexican drug cartels, have exploited the situation to expand their operations and introduce powerful new drugs like fentanyl.

Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 50-100 times more potent than morphine, has become the leading cause of opioid-related deaths in the United States, including in Indian country, according to a Biden-appointed U.S. Attorney. "The widespread availability and abuse of drugs in Indian country, coupled with drug trafficking groups operating in Indian country, contribute to the high rates of crimes on reservations, including violent crime," the attorney stated.

The mass production and distribution of illicit fentanyl is primarily carried out by two Mexican drug cartels, the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG). Despite President Biden's executive order declaring that the safety and well-being of all Native Americans is a top priority for his administration, critics argue that his words ring hollow in light of his other policies that have exacerbated the crisis.

The nation struggles to come to terms with the consequences of the Biden Border Crisis and other perceived failures of his administration, questions arise about the effectiveness of government institutions and the ability of career politicians to address complex challenges. President Biden's 51-year government career serves as a case study for examining the limitations and pitfalls of long-term public service. The American people are left to ponder whether the current administration is equipped to tackle the challenges it faces and deliver on its promises while the border crisis continues to unfold and other issues persist.
