“Where is Biden’s Leadership on the Restaurant Revitalization Fund?”

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 is pushing a tax and spend plan under the guise of a jobs plan. We don’t need a jobs plan. We have more jobs available than people to fill them. We need policies that don’t put small businesses in competition with the government for labor. If Biden wants to spend money constructively, he should encourage Congress to replenish the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, which is set to expire on July 14.  SBA was able to provide grants to 105,000 restaurant operators before the program was depleted. However, another 265,000 applicants did not receive funding. Where is Biden’s leadership on the RRF?  Biden is taking a victory lap for a vaccine-induced recovery. However, there is not a single Biden policy that is fueling the recovery.  Even the $2,000 child care tax credit expansion, which Biden took credit for today, is a product of the previous administration.  The only thing Biden’s policies have brought us is more inflation, which is growing at the fastest pace in four decades and is bringing back memories of the Carter Administration.”
