REPORT: Democrats Are Terrified That An Economic Recovery Will Hurt Biden And Help Trump

It all makes sense now.

Democrats have been pushing for continued lockdowns due to Coronavirus. Is it possible that they are doing this for purely political reasons, because they think it will damage Trump for the November election?

In a word? Yes.

Politico just published this astonishing report:

The general election scenario that Democrats are dreading

In early April, Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a professor at Harvard, was speaking via Zoom to a large bipartisan group of top officials from both parties. The economy had just been shut down, unemployment was spiking and some policymakers were predicting an era worse than the Great Depression. The economic carnage seemed likely to doom President Donald Trump’s chances at reelection.

Furman, tapped to give the opening presentation, looked into his screen of poorly lit boxes of frightened wonks and made a startling claim.

“We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country,” he said…

“Everyone looked puzzled and thought I had misspoken,” Furman said in an interview. Instead of forecasting a prolonged Depression-level economic catastrophe, Furman laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag — truthfully — about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and gross domestic product growth ever…

Furman’s counterintuitive pitch has caused some Democrats, especially Obama alumni, around Washington to panic. “This is my big worry,” said a former Obama White House official who is still close to the former president. Asked about the level of concern among top party officials, he said, “It’s high — high, high, high, high.”

So Democrats are fine with the entire country suffering if they think it will help them win an election? Unreal.

Democrats should lose for this alone.
