Joe Biden is being shredded online for his decision, using his first veto of his term in the White House, to let money managers “prioritize ESG scams over the best-performing investments.”
That comment comes from Sen. Tom Cotton, who openly wondered why Biden is “playing games with working people’s retirement money?”
Joe Biden’s first veto as president: letting retirement fund managers prioritize ESG scams over the best-performing investments.

Biden vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have reversed a Labor Department rule that not only allows, but encourages those companies managing retirement accounts for others to consider “ESG” factors in their investing.
At the bottom line, it means those corporations no longer have the specific responsibility to manage others’ money for their best interest.
They now can invest retirement money on offbeat “environmental, social, or governance” issues without having to worry about whether their decisions will benefit the owners of the money, or actually hurt them.
Fox News reported Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., “blasted” Biden for his move.

“President Biden is choosing to put his administration’s progressive agenda above the well-being of the American people.”
I just vetoed my first bill.
This bill would risk your retirement savings by making it illegal to consider risk factors MAGA House Republicans don’t like.

But GOP presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy pointed out that Biden is using “the invisible fist of government” to control investments.
The fact that Biden’s first veto is about promoting ESG reveals the problem: this isn’t the invisible hand of the “free market.” It’s the invisible fist of government. Don’t fall for their trick. https://t.co/qUeWxwgpxH

Former journalist Charles R. Smith, who wrote, “Lying by Omission,” said Biden is allowing money managers to pursue Democrat “ideological goals,” and ignore their “fiduciary obligations.”
The people who manage your retirement savings should only have one thing to consider: Your retirement security.
Once again Biden is prioritizing far-left special interests over the economic well-being of the American people.

And GOP rapid response director Tommy Pigott said, “The people who manage your retirement savings should only have one thing to consider: Your retirement security.”
He pointed out Biden is giving “far-left special interests” a priority higher than the economic well-being of Americans.
Fox reported former congressional candidate Jason “Storm Chaser” Nelson dispensed with the niceties. “You are such a liar, man.”
He said, to Biden, “You just vetoed a bill that would ensure investments are based on returns, not political policies.”
Bill sponsor Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., said, “President Biden issued a rule that allows money managers for retirement accounts to use ESG as the reason for an investment. Previously, fiduciaries had to invest based on the best rate of return.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Question: Why do the political and corporate leaders of America – long the freest, most successful, most prosperous and most Christian nation in history – bow and scrape before China, a ruthless, communist, totalitarian and explicitly atheistic dictatorship openly committed to ruling the world, including America?
The astonishing answers come into focus only when one contemplates both the unprecedented level of political and financial corruption in America’s ruling class (multiple Biden family members received $31 million in payola from China), and simultaneously the communist Chinese government’s brilliantly devious methods of unconventional total warfare, by which China is stealthily infiltrating, subverting, corrupting and colonizing the United States of America.
The China threat has rarely been more dramatically or pointedly documented than in the sensational March issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOW CHINA IS CONQUERING AMERICA.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
