Delusional Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer issued a join statement gushing about Joe Biden’s first year in office – claiming it was one of the most “impactful” of any president in modern history.
The statement released by the pair on Thursday stated: “When President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were sworn in one year ago, our nation faced a dark and difficult moment from pandemic and economic crises. One year later, we proudly mark one of the most impactful first years of a presidency in modern times.”
Pelosi and Schumer claimed that things such as vaccinations, government handouts, and supposed “job creation” as evidence of the president’s “impactful” first year.
The statement further argues that Biden was somehow “strong” on the economy in his first year despite that being a far-fetched tale.
“Democrats have powered an historic economic recovery that has created a record 6.4 million new jobs, slashed the unemployment rate with the biggest single-year drop ever, from 6.2 percent to 3.9 percent, and helping sixteen million Americans off the unemployment rolls,” the statement read.
While the statement boldly claims that Biden has “created” jobs, the numbers tell an entirely different story – showing that the Democrat he actually hasn’t added a single job to the economy during his tenure.
Pelosi and Schumer’s claims fly directly in the face of most Americans who are frustrated by Biden’s handling of the economy.
A recently released CBS News poll revealed that half of voters are “frustrated” with the Biden administration. Another 40% of voters shared that they were “nervous,” and only 25% said they were “calm” or “satisfied.”
Voters main concerns were with Biden’s handling of the economy and the rampant inflation that he has brought on. Close to 60% of those polled said Biden was not focused on the economy as much as he should be, and another 65% said he should focus more on inflation.
Even former members of the Obama administration have begun sounding the alarm over potentially higher inflation.
“I think the data flow is saying what I’ve thought for quite some time that, yes, there are transitory elements in inflation, and very likely they will recede, but we are basically moving towards higher entrenched inflation,” former Treasury Secretary and director of the National Economic Council Larry Summers Warned.
“It’s there in expectations, it’s there in wages, it’s there in labor shortages, it’s there in the pervasive pattern across many different prices.”
Pelosi and Schumer attempted to bury this reality in their statement by pointing to an optimistic future with their party in control, executing Biden’s “spectacular vision for the future.”
Pelosi and Schumer concluded: “One year into President Biden’s term, our Democratic Majorities in Congress remain hard at work alongside the Administration to execute his spectacular vision for the future by continuing to support strong communities, lowering costs for American families, tackling the climate crisis and requiring the wealthiest to pay their fair share. We remain committed to delivering on this agenda – now and for decades to come.”
