The Biden administration has failed America in a number of ways over the course of the last 18 months or so, but perhaps none is as prescient and worrisome as their work on the economy.
In particular, Biden and his team have been unable to capitalize on what should have been one of the most powerful and prosperous national recoveries of all time, as the coronavirus pandemic began to wane in severity, and the nation itself opened back up.
But instead of sending Americans back out to spend and stimulate our fiscal forecast, Biden’s policies have been lagging and lacking, and we are currently experiencing inflation at a rate that we haven’t seen in 40 years.
This week, in yet another bit of oblivious gibberish, Biden has declared the pandemic “over”.
President Biden said in a 60 Minutes interview Sunday that the COVID-19 pandemic is a thing of the past.
“The pandemic is over,” he said. “We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape, and so I think it’s changing, and I think [the Detroit auto show resuming after three years] is a perfect example of it.”
His remarks came as Biden’s own administration seeks an additional $22.4 billion from Congress to keep funding the fight against COVID, and as the United States continues to see hundreds of related deaths every day.
Of course, this now begs the question: Did Biden fail to usher in an economic boom in post-COVID recovery because he didn’t think that pandemic was over? Or was he simply unable to recognize the opportunity as it presented itself?
In either case, the Commander in Chief was able to turn a surefire economic boom into a total bust, and 2024 voters certainly won’t forget.
