US Capitol White House money backgroundLike any president-elect, Joe Biden has a vision for America – but not everyone sees eye to eye with him on his plans for political speech.

On "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins" Wednesday, Terence P. Jeffrey, editor-in-chief of CNS News, described one of the "government reform" objectives of the incoming administration in Washington, DC (see image from JoeBiden.com below):

Jeffrey: "Joe Biden has pushed for a constitutional amendment that will literally prohibit the spending of any private money on political speech in the United States. He wants all political speech funded by the government.

"In other words, if you're going to run for office, the only way you can run is if the government gives you money to run. If you want to speak about what a politician is doing, [if you want to] have a radio show [like this], you have to have the money from the government to do it."

Based on that proposal, according to Jeffrey, Biden wants to "make it impossible for us to speak on our own, using our own resources to use our First Amendment right to freedom of speech."

Jeffrey explained this clearly isn't a conspiracy theory about Biden's plans; in fact, he said, it's clearly out there for all to see.

"Biden has posted it on his campaign website, and he literally says he wants to drive all private money out of American politics," Jeffrey continued, "which means that individual Americans won't be able to spend their own money to get their message out to tell people about what they think about what's going on politically in the United States."

"That's Joe Biden's position as he's about to become president of the United States," warned Jeffrey.

Inauguration Day is next Wednesday – January 20, 2021.
