Debunking Ten of Joe Biden’s lies about the state of the US economy

by James Bovard

“‘Inflation is the bane of our existence,’ President Biden lamented last week to talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. Unfortunately, he was referring to inflation’s effect on presidential approval ratings, not the plight of average Americans brutalized to pay for gas and groceries. The president’s speech Tuesday to the AFL-CIO was another Team Biden pity party that hard facts were not permitted to interrupt. … Biden alternates between claiming credit for everything good that happens in America and swearing to be an innocent bystander to an economy going off the rails.” (06/015/22)
