Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican, has publicly criticised President Joe Biden’s social media usage. Biden recently called on airlines to allow families to sit together for free on flights without paying an additional fee for seats together, a practice that some airlines have already implemented. Greene, a vocal critic of Biden’s policies, argued that he should prioritise other issues, such as securing the southern border amid an increase in migrant arrivals.
Biden’s post elicited mixed reactions on social media, with some questioning whether he should prioritise family seating over other issues. Some argue that the proposal is stupid and that a credible small government party would be beneficial in opposing the left’s creeping statism. According to economist E.J. Antoni, the cause of the cost-of-living crisis is not the ~80% increase in homeownership costs since January ’21… Others applaud Biden for bringing the issue to light, arguing that parents should not be charged more to sit with their children.
Senator Ed Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, stated that families should be protected from being forced to pay exorbitant fees just to sit together on a flight. Will Truman, editor-in-chief of Ordinary Times magazine, stated that those who claim this is an out-of-touch boutique issue are more out of touch than Biden here. When this topic comes up in the meat world, almost everyone thinks it’s a particularly bad nickel-and-dime.
