They can and do lie every time they open their mouths. They are currently trying to redefine the term "infrastructure". The dictionary definition includes roads, bridges, power generation, power distribution (electric grid, pipelines), food production, food distribution, Things we use every day but don't "see" and can't live in a modern society without.At least now the democrats can't say again that voting passport is difficult to get.
Biden was on his way this morning to give a speech in his home state of Pennsylvania and shortly before it started, a bridge in a nearby area collapsed. Injuring several but I think not killing anyone just to make a point.
But the "infrastructure" bill before Congress will not spend any money on any of those things. It's all about social issues.
One of Biden's campaign promises was to choose a black woman as his running mate. That's fine, he can choose whoever he wants because the person chosen may or may not affect the votes he gets in the election.
However, he also promised to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. That's a different matter. It isn't a personal choice as an "assistant" that the people also get to vote on, it is a life time appointment and is specifically forbidden by the anti-discrimination laws. You can't hire someone BECAUSE they are Black and/or a woman. You should be hiring people based on ability.
When leftists use "equity" to choose nominees, I ask how they pick their heart surgeon and their personal doctor and their lawyer. Do they choose because the doctor/lawyer checks some irrelevant boxes or because the doctor/lawyer is the best qualified to solve their problem. How about your airplane pilots. Do you want someone deaf and blind and gay with a Spanish surname? That checks a lot of boxes and planes do almost fly themselves these days but I'd rather have someone QUALIFIED flying the plane.
