As far as jobs are concerned, Joe Biden is not off to a great start.
The January jobs report just came out and Biden is saying that it’s going to take ten years to get back to full employment.
Of course, it might happen faster if Biden stops killing jobs.
Breitbart News reports:
Joe Biden: It Will Take Ten Years to Get Full Employment at Current Job Growth Rate
President Joe Biden sounded a dark note on the future of the economy Friday, after a bleak jobs report came out.
The United States economy added 49,000 jobs in December with only 6,000 jobs in the private sector, according to the latest report released Friday morning.
“At that rate, it’s going to take ten years to get back to full employment,” Biden said. “That’s not hyperbole, that’s a fact.”
The president spoke while meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats in the Oval Office to discuss his $1.9 trillion coronavirus spending plan.
“This is about people’s lives, it’s not just about numbers,” he said, noting the rise in mental health cases, drug abuse, and suicides in the United States.
This is a disaster.
I have never seen a president break as many campaign promises while simultaneously signing executive orders to fundamentally destroy jobs and our standing in the world as Biden. Time for the GOP to get its house together.

President Biden has directed federal agencies to determine how expansive a ban on new oil & gas leasing there should be on federal land.
This ban would kill nearly a million jobs by 2022.
It’s clear that American jobs are LOW on Pres. Biden’s priority list.

Biden again refused to take questions after his speech on the economy yesterday.
People are losing their jobs right now because of his executive orders, and they deserve answers.

This is not a good sign of things to come.
