Joe Biden has been President for just a few weeks.
But his short time in office has seen one calamity unfold after another.
And then Joe Biden sat in the Oval Office and made one chilling admission of defeat.
The Joe Biden era delivered another body blow to the American people in the form of the first jobs report of Biden’s presidency.
In January, America created just 49,000 jobs as states suffered under oppressive and unnecessary coronavirus lockdowns that Joe Biden supports.
Instead of acknowledging the reality of this failure, Biden doubled down claiming that it would take ten years to get back to the pre-pandemic unemployment level.
“At that rate, it’s going to take ten years to get back to full employment,” Biden told press and assembled House Democrats. “That’s not hyperbole, that’s a fact.”
Critics contend Biden’s failed policies will only depress the economic recovery and lengthen the pain for the American people.
For instance, Biden proposed a job-killing minimum wage increase to $15 per hour.
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that this economically illiterate policy could cost nearly four million Americans their jobs.
“There is a two-thirds chance that the change in employment would be between about zero and a decrease of 3.7 million workers,” the Congressional Budget Office’s analysis of a proposed minimum wage increase suggests.
Biden’s cutting down the prospects of working-class Americans was not limited to pricing many out of the job market.
Joe Biden also signed multiple executive orders to gut the American energy industry.
Biden signed one order canceling the Keystone XL pipeline which will eliminate up to 11,000 jobs.
In another order Biden broke his promise not to ban fracking by signing an executive order banning fracking on federal lands by not issuing new leases.
The American Petroleum Institute published an analysis which estimated this disastrous policy would eliminate up to 1,000,000 jobs by 2022.
“Banning federal leasing and development on federal lands and waters would derail decades of U.S. energy progress and return us to the days of relying on foreign energy sources hostile to American interests,” API President Mike Sommers declared. “This is ultimately a choice between American-made energy and foreign energy, a choice between American jobs and foreign jobs. It’s clear a federal leasing ban should be off the table – there’s far too much at stake for American workers, local economies and our nation’s energy security.”
Texas Congressman Kevin Brady cited this study noting it would cost his home state 120,000 jobs.
“Killing more Texas jobs,” Brady wrote on social media. “After killing #KeystoneXL pipeline, #Biden suspends new oil/gas leasing on fed lands/water. If permanent, 120,000 TX jobs lost. 120,000 MORE jobless. Pssst… aren’t you supposed to CREATE jobs?”
In 2020 Republicans flipped a swing congressional seat on the mere warning of Joe Biden’s job-killing, anti-energy agenda.
Now that Biden put his plan to choke off American energy independence into practice, Republicans believe they can put the governor’s mansion in play since Biden’s federal fracking ban is estimated to eliminate 62,000 energy jobs in New Mexico.
It doesn’t need to take ten years for America to claw its way back to full employment.
Critics contend Biden is only making the climb steeper by rushing so many job-killing policies into law.
