BIDEN ANNOUNCES INFRASTRUCTURE DEAL, JOB CREATORS NETWORK REACTS

Press ReleaseJune 24, 2021

President Biden announced a $953 billion infrastructure deal that was negotiated with five Democratic Senators and five Republican Senators.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network (JCN), released the following statement:

“This is Washington at its worst.  Why are we spending almost $1 trillion to create jobs when job availability isn’t a problem?  We have 9.3 million job openings – an all-time record.  Our small business owners are desperate to hire more workers, but they are competing with the government’s overly-generous jobless benefits. Biden created this problem by including these benefits in his $1.9 trillion spending bill in March.  Now his solution for the problem he created is to spend another $1 trillion. We are witnessing the worst economic start for any President since Jimmy Carter.”
