The holidays are a special time Americans can get together, put aside their differences and problems, and celebrate what matters most. But this year, the holidays might not be so cheerful for many Americans. Because just when they need a break, they will be faced with rising costs for everything from food, fuel, and gifts.
And we all know who’s to blame.
Biden’s failed presidency has taken Trump’s recovering economy and flipped it on its head. We were coming out of 2020 ready to take the world by storm. Now, America is limping along, begging Russia and China for some gasoline. Estimates suggest food and gifts this Thanksgiving and Christmas will be at all-time highs.
Americans aren’t missing the story. And they’ve given Biden some seriously bad news.
A CBS/YouGov poll published November 21 shows Americans are feeling the effects of President Joe Biden’s struggling economy…
The survey reveals that 39 percent of respondents approve of Biden’s handling of the economy, while 61 percent of participants disapprove. Seventy-three percent of Democrats approve of Biden’s handling of the economy, while just six percent of Republicans approve. In terms of independents, 32 percent approve of the president’s job on the economy, and 68 percent disapprove. [Source: Breitbart]
I guess CBS only polled rich Democrats who aren’t affected by rising gas prices and runaway inflation. Or they are so guilt-ridden for supporting this communist president, they have burned their TVs and deleted their social media accounts. Because how can 94% of Republicans and 68% of independents disapprove of Biden’s economy and so few Democrats are doing the same?
Biden’s terrible leadership has put all Americans in a tough spot. That is unless you’re a rich Democrat living in a gated community, who has a private shopper. The rest of us? We struggle to put gas in the car and buy presidents for their children.
And even if we manage to land a few Black Friday sales, the supply chain crisis might ensure we never see those presents under the tree.
Biden’s poor handling of the economy started all the way back in early 2021. He managed to get Democrats in Congress to pass a bloated “stimulus” bill that both triggered inflation and paid people not to go back to work. Since then, it’s been one bad decision after another, contributing to one of the worst economies we’ve seen in years.
You can’t blame all that on COVID. The country was recovering even before the vaccines were ready. With them widely available, there should have been no reason the economy slowed down. But it did. And it wasn’t Trump’s fault, was it?
The only question is, what are we going to do about it, come 2022?
