How is it that Republican candidates won’t admit that inflation and our border problems are “not” President Biden’s fault?
Inflation, supply and demand: The outbreak of COVID-19 primarily impacted the global financial economy. This pandemic resulted in lower consumer activity; diminished demand for products and services; and disrupted manufacturing and supply chain activity around the world. Extreme events like COVID-19 cause major impacts that have significant adverse effects on the world’s financial environment. The inflation action has also been affected by energy and food shortages as a result of the Russia–Ukraine war. Corporate greed has also contributed to U.S. inflation.
Because of the above, the Fed (not under the president’s authority) has the responsibility to manage the U.S. economy, controlling inflation.
The border: Because of our great reputation around the world, people want to come to the U.S. However, our COVID impact was so high during Trump’s administration and the illegal and cruel border policies he put in place like separating families and not letting immigrants seeking asylum come into the U.S., it resulted in lower migration activity.
More problems with autocratic rulers, economies and conflicts (like Ukraine) around the world caused an increase in migration. The Biden administration restarted following the law. Our Congress has control over laws that must be followed by any administration and Republicans have blocked any congressional action on immigration. Truly, no fence will keep desperate people out. Think about how many lives have been lost trying to get here.
No party or individual can control the world’s population movement or economy. Republicans blame Biden/Democrats because they have nothing but fear mongering, lies, conspiracy theories and culture wars to offer voters.
Don’t let the Republicans fill you with their negative talking points; your main objective should be to save our democracy by voting for Democrats for both state and federal positions.
