One of the new big challenges facing America is that we have ships full of containers sitting in ports waiting to unload because there’s a shortage of workers to make it happen.
This is leading to supply shortages in various parts of the country and it’s expected to get worse.
Joe Biden is so focused on passing his massive spending bill that he is failing to address this new problem.

Joe Biden Unable to Meet ‘Major Challenges’ on Clogged Ports and Snarled Supply Chains
President Joe Biden is still struggling to meet the immediate challenge of clogged sea ports, as American consumers face major shortages ahead of the Christmas holiday season.
The president has been aware of the problems for months, promising in August to monitor the situation and offer solutions.
“My administration is bringing together the port operators, shipping lines, the labor unions, trucking companies, railroads, and others to speed up the port’s operations,” Biden said on August 11.
He reassured Americans “these bottlenecks and price spikes will reduce as our economy continues to heal” and promised to monitor the situation.
Biden appointed John D. Porcari to as a “Port Envoy” for the administration on August 21, joining Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to try and solve the shipping problems.
But two months later, port delays continue.
There are 146 cargo ships off the California coast waiting to get unloaded, according to reports over the weekend.
This is a problem that is going to affect every single American if it isn’t dealt with soon.
Ships wait off the California coast, unable to unload their cargo.
Truckers are overworked and overwhelmed, often confronting logjams.

Just add this to the growing list of national issues Biden is not handling.
