Serial liar President Joe Biden welcomed 2024 with more deceptions about the flailing economy and his role in exacerbating it.
“My hope is that everybody has a healthy, happy, and safe new year, but beyond that, I hope they understand that we’re in a better position than any country in the world to lead the world. We’re coming back, and it’s about time,” Biden said during his cameo on ABC’s “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” on Dec. 31.
Biden’s muddled spiel about rising prices is not in touch with the reality the rest of the country currently faces.
A majority of voters, 59.7 percent, say they disapprove of the president’s handling of the economy. In general, nearly 92 percent of voters say they are somewhat or very concerned about inflation heading into the new year.
Biden, however, claimed he restored the “hope and faith” of flyover country workers through his Bidenomics plan, including the creation of “a lot of jobs: 14 million.”
“We’ve brought a lot of jobs back to the United States, people are in a position to be able to make a living now,” Biden bragged, before once again declaring, “We’re back.”
A plurality of voters say the economy is their top issue going into the 2024 election, which is why the White House and corporate media repeatedly insist Americans’ perceptions of the economy, not the record-high prices that are here to stay, are the problem.
They cover up Americans’ sticker shock by claiming inflation is “cooling” and that Americans are experiencing “low unemployment” ushered in by the Democrat regime. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Inflation may have slightly decreased in 2023 since peaking in 2021, but it still hasn’t reached pre-pandemic levels. Year over year, especially, continues to rise. In November 2023 alone, Americans paid 3.1 percent more for goods and services than they did in 2022.
Biden might, in the words of his New Year’s Eve interviewer Ryan Seacrest, “enjoy two scoops of ice cream” to kick off his New Year, but his constituents would need at least an extra $11,434 to “afford the basics” as they did at the beginning of 2021.
In reality, a majority of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, making it more difficult to purchase luxuries like a nice Thanksgiving dinner, Independence Day BBQ, Christmas gifts, and even ice cream.
