Press ReleaseJuly 7, 2021


Today, President Biden delivered a speech in Crystal Lake, Illinois to sell his “Build Back Better” agenda.

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

“Today, President Biden told his audience ‘I know that was a boring speech but it was an important speech.’ Biden was only half-right: it was boring, yes, but it was also dishonest.  The reason it was boring is because he was pushing the same tired policies the Democrats have been pushing for years.  The reason it was dishonest was because Biden is claiming credit for a vaccine-induced recovery he has nothing to do with.  The credit for our recovery belongs to Operation Warp Speed, which was a product of the previous administration.  Biden’s only impact on the economy is holding it back with irresponsible spending, increasing inflation and incentivizing people not to work.  He can try and try to take credit for the vaccine, but the American people know the truth.”

In April, JCN released a backgrounder, “Biden and the Democrats’ War on Small Business.” The backgrounder summarizes the Democrats’ job-killing agenda in four areas: taxes, the minimum wage, lockdowns, and the PRO Act. To read it, click here.
