The obstacles that Joe Biden faces before his inauguration as President of the United States of America
A date has been set in Washington, DC, to form the outcome of the Georgia Senate run-off election, the presidency of Joe Biden even before it officially begins on January 20, before Democratic President Joe Biden officially takes office.
If Democrats John Usov and Raphael Warnock won, the Senate split would be 50-50 between the two parties, and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris could also cast a decisive vote to help so the Democrats could win the Senate division.
But if Republicans David Purdue or Kelly Loeffler won one of the seats, this is how the Republicans will get 51 votes, and this is what makes Hoe Biden unable to make decisions or even initiatives alone.
“I don’t think it can be overestimated,” says Professor of Political Science at San Diego University Casey Dominguez. “Whoever gets the majority leader position in the Senate is very important.”
If the Democrats won the majority of votes in dividing the Senate, then in order for Joe Biden to make decisions without debate and pass legislation over his decisions, he must get 60 votes to cut off the debate. But even with a majority of 60 votes, Biden was able to pass a single resolution once a year, so the Senate could pass the tax and spending bill by a simple majority.
And when the Democrats win a majority, the left will apply pressure and deny Republican senators the opportunity to influence the legislation.
The presence of a Republican Senate forces Joe Biden to fulfill his campaign promise to find common ground between Republicans and Democrats.
But Mitch McConnell is likely to prevent any decision regarding taxes, immigration or climate, which is one of the decisions that have different fundamentals for both parties, which may arise many problems later.
