I believe that the Democrats knew exactly what would happen if they paid Americans more not to work than to go back to work. It’s like when pushers give addicts free drugs. – KJ
FoxNews.com reports that
President Biden on Friday said the country is “still digging out of an economic collapse” amid the coronavirus pandemic, but that the U.S. is on the “right track,” as the administration reported that the economy created just 266,000 jobs in April, and saw rising unemployment.
Biden, speaking from the White House, said he took office during a “once-in-a-century pandemic and a once-in-a-generation economic crisis.”
He continued, “We knew this wouldn’t be a sprint—it would be a marathon.”
The April jobs report released Friday showed the U.S. economy heavily missed Wall Street’s expectations, adding a measly 266,000 new jobs as the country continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The unemployment rate also unexpectedly rose to 6.1%. While it’s still well below the April 2020 peak of 14.7%, it’s about twice the pre-crisis level, the Labor Department announced in its monthly payroll report, released Friday morning. Economists surveyed by Refinitiv said they expected the report to show that unemployment fell to 5.8% and the economy added 978,000 jobs.
“You might think we should be disappointed,” Biden said of the numbers, but claimed the “American Rescue Plan,” which passed in late March, “was designed to help us over the course of a year—not 60 days.”
“Today, there is more evidence our economy is moving in the right direction,” Biden said, while acknowledging, however, that “it is clear we have a long way to go.”
Biden, though, touted his administration, saying 1.5 million jobs have been created since he took office.
“This is progress. This is a testament to our new strategy,” Biden said. “We’ve got work to do, to state the obvious, we have work to do.”
He added: “Let’s keep our eye on the ball.”
Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called the jobs numbers “disappointing,” saying it highlighted the ” urgent need to pass President Biden’s American Jobs and Families Plans.”
She went on, “We need to take bold action to Build Back Better from this crisis by investing in our nation, our workers and our families.”
An April report by Moody’s Analytics, an economic research firm, projected that the U.S. would add 16.3 million jobs through 2030 regardless of Biden’s plan passing. Its study also revealed that Biden’s plan would only truly add 2.7 million jobs if implemented, for a total of 19 million.
Have the dimensions shifted and somehow we are all now living in Bizarro World?
Let me get this straight…
75% less jobs added and more Unemployed Americans than predicted and this is considered by the demented doddering old fool in the White House to being “on the Right Track”?
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
The economy is only “on the Right Track” if you are trying to radically change our country from Free Market Capitalism (which 75% of Americans support) to a Marxist-style “Democratic Socialist” Government.
So far, during the nightmare that is the Biden-Harris Administration, Marxism is being fully embraced in the name of “Democratic Socialism”. “Political compromise” took the last plane out of town a long time ago.
Did you know that there is an actual organization named the Democratic Socialists of America?
In a document titled “Where We Stand,” DSA outlines in detail its political perspectives. Here is an excerpt…
“Social redistribution—the shift of wealth and resources from the rich to the rest of society—will require: massive redistribution of income from corporations and the wealthy to wage earners and the poor and the public sector, in order to provide the main source of new funds for social programs, income maintenance and infrastructure rehabilitation, and a massive shift of public resources from the military (the main user of existing discretionary funds) to civilian uses.”
Sound hauntingly familiar, “comrades”?
Remember when the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke about “sharing the wealth” to a plumber named Joe during his 2008 Presidential Campaign?
One hundred years ago in Russia, a revolution was based on that very idea.
The unworkable theory that “Democratic Socialism” is based on is known as Marxism.
No government which has taken it as their political philosophy has ever flourished. The government grew and those working within it became rich while the “Proletariat” or average working citizens starved, giving all they had “for the good of the State”.
For quite a while now, I have been referring to those of the Far Left Democratic Party who did everything they could to disrupt and interfere with the success of Former President Donald J. Trump and the comeback of the Greatest Country on the face of the Earth, as the “New Bolsheviks”.
To be immodest, it looks like I nailed that one.
These “useful idiots” were so “out there” that they had the Old Guard of the Democratic Party running scared, which allowed them to run the party and their political campaign strategies for the 2020 Presidential Elections.
As America has witnessed, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the left side of the Political Spectrum for decades now.
So, it is really no surprise that they have become which they have been whining about for several years: fascists.
But they have not become just any kind of fascists. They have become Marxist Fascists, extolling the “benevolent goodness” of an all-powerful Central Government who will take care of everyone from cradle to grave.
And, those who refuse to give up their individual freedom as guaranteed to us by our Constitution are to be shunned and ridiculed as “intolerant, ignorant hillbillies”.
As I have written before, America is involved in an internal struggle, a “Civil War”, if you will, for the very soul of our Sovereign Nation.
When the Marxists in the Democratic Party who declared “war” on America and her citizens found that they cold not to win the hearts of average Americans they decided to commit Election Fraud on a level which has never before been scene in America.
Regardless of what propaganda that comes out of the Administration and their minions in the Main Stream Media, the overwhelming majority of our citizens are still proud Americans who embrace traditional faith and values, including Free Market Capitalism.
Unfortunately, our nation also has a lot of “useful idiots” who do not have a clue.
And, they are who the Far Left Democrats and their puppet, President Joe Biden, are attempting to convince that a Marxist Government-based Economy is a good thing.
