JCN PRESIDENT ALFREDO ORTIZ HITS BIDEN ON ECONOMY AFTER PRESSER

Press ReleaseAugust 6, 2021

Today, President Biden took credit for America’s economic recovery at a press event.

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

“President Biden said ‘the Biden plan is working.’  Nothing could be further from the truth.  We are in a vaccine-induced recovery thanks to Operation Warp Speed, which was launched and carried out by the previous administration.  The strong jobs report that came out today is a credit to the 26 Governors who reduced unemployment benefits in their states. The President’s tax-spend-and-inflate policies are artificially suppressing job creation and creating a fiscal train wreck that threatens our entire recovery. The $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill is just the latest example of that, and we urge every Republican Senator to vote against it. Biden and Congress should be focused on stimulating private sector growth, which starts with calling a vote on Congressman Luetkemeyer’s ENTRÉE Act. Instead of taking a victory lap, Biden should be reversing course on his dangerous policies and empowering the only Americans who can lead our recovery: America’s 90-million-strong small business community.”

JCN recently ran a full-page advertisement in the Wall Street Journal comparing the current economy under President Biden to that under former President Jimmy Carter. High inflation, soaring gas prices, and a policy agenda threatening jobs are among similarities. View the full-page ad here.
