KEY TAKEAWAYS:

 

President Biden is cooling down our jobs recovery.

Rep. Brady said:

“Right now, job growth is slowing. There were 1.4 million fewer jobs in the first half of this year than the last half of 2020.”
 
“These tax increases that ultimately land on small businesses, families, local investors, overall will drive U.S. jobs overseas in a significant way. That, and the attack on American-made energy are unforced economic errors that are slowing this economy down in a significant way.”

Despite all the advantages of trillions of COVID stimulus, reopening communities, and lifesaving vaccines economic growth is slowing down.

 

Rep. Brady said:

 

“Economic growth is slowing down. New CBO projections show about 30 percent slower economic growth after we get through this sugar high.
 

“Economic optimism is down; real wages are down and have been every month this year. The only thing seemingly going up are rising prices.”

President Biden’s massive government spending is causing prices to rise and have earned him an ‘F’ on his economic report card.

 

Rep. Brady said:

 

“You’re seeing this inflation driven by massive government spending and the President paying people more to stay home than to work. For that reason, at this six-month point, on this economic report card, we would give him an inflation-adjusted ‘F’”.
