Washington, DC (March 1, 2022) – Tonight, President Biden delivered his annual State of the Union address.
Alfredo Ortiz, Job Creators Network President and CEO, released the following statement:
“President Biden tried gaslighting America about his economic track record tonight, but it won’t work. Seventy-eight percent of Americans are dissatisfied with the country’s direction, according to a Gallup poll released today – and it’s easy to understand why. Inflation is at its highest level in 40 years, employment remains below pre-Covid levels, and crime is out of control – all thanks to Biden’s Government policies. The situation would be even worse if Biden’s vaccine mandate had taken effect, but JCN helped overturn that. We were the first small business organization to sue the Administration over the mandate and the first to file at the Supreme Court. Biden wants to hide behind these failures by talking tough against Russia. But we are still importing about a million barrels of oil from Russia every day. Today, JCN erected a billboard in the heart of Times Square calling Biden out for his failure. Our message: ‘Drill More, Pay Less. C’Mon Joe. This ain’t hard.’ Since Day One, JCN has been leading the fight against Biden’s disastrous economic policies. We will continue doing so in the year ahead.”
