Many Americans over the past several months have sounded the alarm over Biden’s economic policies. Handing out government checks to the unemployed instead of incentivizing them to seek jobs contributed to ongoing labor shortages.

Implementing COVID vaccine mandates has engendered back-to-back firings and resignations across the country. People are getting driven out of the workforce; many establishments remain short-staffed as a result.

This furthermore comes on top of the debt ceiling crisis. Congress recently passed a bill that will carry the country over until December 2021; however, America is not out of the woods just yet.

To top it all off, inflation remains present in America and isn’t projected to end anytime soon. Now, brand new reports suggest the United States is heading into a recession.

The recession president

If America does end up in a recession, it will be due to the choices and policies of President Biden. The American Rescue Plan did not aid or revitalize the economy as the Biden administration claimed it would; this bill had precisely the opposite impact on the economy.

According to a research essay from David Blanchflower and Alex Bryson, the foreshadowing of an incoming U.S. recession is quite clear. It’s clear due to the fact that consumer confidence has maintained a steady decline for the past half year.

According to Blanchflower and Bryson, declines of this nature have indicated impending economic recessions for decades. This comes on top of the litany of other economic problems, such as inflation, the debt ceiling, staffing shortages, and more.

Biden’s dangerous denial

Right now, the president is in denial about what’s happening in the United States. Every day, the White House feigns as if the nation is on the right track economically.

Biden’s denial is an issue because his actions have the United States on the verge of a recession. This denial furthermore blocks the president from changing his course of action that has brought America to this place. Therefore, turning the curve will be very challenging.

The fact that the country faces a recession less than nine months into Biden’s presidential term and Democrats controlling Congress speaks very clearly. It’s time for a change in leadership; the leadership we currently have is failing and ruining the nation.
