Since January of last year, the economy has added more than 8 million jobs. Businesses have reopened their doors. Schools are back in person. And, while there is more work to be done, we have made real progress in getting our economy back on track.

Apparently, the veep thinks we’re all too stupid to figure out that these are just the jobs that were lost during the pandemic returning as businesses and schools reopened.
Even CNBC called BS on the Biden administration’s shameless whoppers about the economy.
“The economy — and this is an important point — hasn’t added one single job from the 2019 high watermark. Not one. All the jobs that we have seen gained are recovered jobs that were lost. We are not yet producing new jobs. In fact, we’re still about nearly four million jobs short,” said ADP chief economist Nela Richardson on “Squawk Box.”

People are hurting out here, ma'am. Y'all are out of touch with the day to day reality of 80% of the U.S. population.
Lower and middle class families need serious relief, *now* – not self-congratulatory posts about "job growth." 🙄 How about *wage* growth? Affordable education?

➡️ +8.3% general inflation (much greater for energy and food)
➡️ -1.4% economic growth
➡️ 20%+ loss in the stock market
➡️ slowing job growth
➡️ slowing wage growth
➡️ slowing labor demand
Y'all have a strange definition of "getting our economy back on track."

Please, please, please believe what we’re telling you. Please close your eyes to reality. Don’t look at how much it costs you to fill up your tank. Tighten your belt. You don’t need to have that much food anyway. If you can’t pay your rent or your mortgage by a tent.
