The ruling class elites are completely out-of-touch with the reality working class Americans live every day.
That’s especially true when their own failed policies are driving voters’ frustrations.
And Joe Biden wanted to crawl out of his skin after this reporter asked him one question about so-called “Bidenomics.”
Biden tries to brag about the economy
As President Joe Biden seeks re-election in 2024, he’s starting to focus on the state of the economy.
But the truth is that the US economy is in serious trouble.
While the Biden regime continues to say that unemployment is down and the economy is recovering from the pandemic better than other countries, that doesn’t matter to everyday Americans.
What matters most to Americans is the reality they experience every day, and their lived experience tells them that nothing the regime and their media allies are saying is true.
Prices for everything from fuel and food to housing and vehicles continue to remain high, causing many families to struggle to pay rent, put food on the table, and maintain their vehicles so they can go to work to earn a living.
But Biden keeps trying to convince voters that things are improving as he heads to his first economy-focused campaign event of 2024 in Allentown, Pennsylvania – a crucial battleground state.
Recent reports show that inflation numbers rose higher than expected, but Biden chose to brag about creating 14 million jobs since he took office – the overwhelming majority of which are jobs coming back after being scrapped during COVID, and government employees.
He did admit that there is “much more work to do to lower costs for American families and American workers.”
According to Joanne Hsu of the University of Michigan, the overall economic mood in America is improving, albeit slowly.
Hsu’s department publishes a monthly consumer confidence survey that is closely followed by markets.
“There is plenty of evidence in our survey that consumers do recognize the areas of strength in our economy,” she said. “However, what they don’t feel good about… is that inflation, high prices specifically, continue to weigh down on their economic experiences.”
Prices haven’t come down anywhere close to pre-COVID levels, which makes buying groceries extremely difficult for a large portion of working class Americans.
“Consumers are still really struggling to accept that we’re not going back to 2019,” Hsu said.
Biden is frustrated
Biden can continue to pretend that the economy is doing better all he wants, but in reality, he’s frustrated about the conditions behind the scenes.
As he headed off for a Christmas vacation, a self-proclaimed “journalist” asked how he viewed the economy in 2024.
“All good,” Biden snapped. “Take a look. Start reporting it the right way.”
Things are already dire for the 81-year-old Democrat President as he faces historically-low approval ratings.
President Biden continues to sing the praises of so-called “Bidenomics,” most notably his signature Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which is spending hundreds of billions of dollars to improve infrastructure and help high-tech manufacturing and green energy industries.
But most of these plans won’t be in effect for many years, and Americans continue to feel the real economic pain.
Since the “Bidenomics” jargon isn’t resonating with voters, it appears that Joe Biden’s campaign will start focusing on attacking Donald Trump as a threat to democracy to draw attention away from what’s really going on.
