The good news for the economy is that there were 428,000 “new” jobs added to the economy in the month of April. The “experts” said it would be about 300,000, so the good news is, the economy added more jobs than was predicted. The jobless rate held steady at 3.6%, which is still 0.1% above where it was before the whole COVID thing hit back in February/March of 2020.
The thing that you won’t hear Joe Biden or the administration or the talking heads on the snowflake news channels say is, there were 4 MILLION Americans that have quit their jobs this year without going to a new job.
My question is why?
Obviously, when you add jobs to the economy it’s good because people are earning money, they’ve gotten off the couch, they’re contributing to society. That’s good for the country, regardless what side of the political spectrum you’re on. However, when millions of people say they’ve had enough, be it because of vaccine mandates, or mask mandates, or they just hit retirement age and decided to rest and relax, that’s a lot of folks not contributing.
The overall problems with our economy is still there. First of all, the government does not add new jobs to the economy unless they are expanding government. That’s the only way Joe Biden should be getting credit. We are still adding back the jobs that were lost during COVID, and according to CNN Business, they say that by the end of August of this year, all of the jobs lost due to COVID will have been added back into the workforce.
Now, that means that all that Biden claims to have “added” and “grown” as far as jobs is concerned isn’t really the truth. All he’s been able to do is slowly, over the past year and a half add back some of the jobs that were lost when we shut down. He hasn’t expanded the economy. In fact, as the GDP shows from the first quarter, we have contracted the sized of our economy. One more bad quarter means that we’ve hit the definition of “recession”. That would be about six to eight months earlier than most economic experts are predicting. They are saying that 2023 is when we should tighten our belts (if you do such a thing during a recession), and be ready for high inflation and a lower economy. That will be far enough into Biden’s watch as president that there isn’t any way he can blame Trump for that. He’s going to have to step up and take the responsibility for it.
Yes, we are slowly getting back to normal after COVID. And that’s a good thing. I don’t know anyone that wants our economy to falter or fail. But having said that, we’re a long ways off from where we were with Trump as president. Inflation is wholly seven times higher now than it was back then. Gas prices are wholly $2.50 a gallon higher now than it was back then. We had no supply chain issues back then. And we had no problems on the southern border.
What is scary is that we have real problems. And what are the Democrats screaming about? They are screaming about an early draft that was leaked on abortion from the Supreme Court. It means nothing. It could be entirely reversed by June. They need to focus on what’s happening now and not worry about what may happen up the road. Even then, it’s not going to eliminate abortions. It only is going to allow the states to make that decision, which is what the 10th Amendment says should happen anyway. We can only pray that one day, these snowflakes would look to the future and figure out what’s BEST for America!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
