On Day One, president asterisk took a tire iron to New Mexico’s economy and that of some Utah Indians as well. They’re not happy. But the damage is a lot worse than that. His promised changes could easily cost Americans 6 million jobs, and he’s just getting started.
- A Congressional Budget Office report found that a federal $15 minimum wage could destroy as many as 3.7 million jobs. (I think it’s a lot higher than that.)
- Biden’s pledged to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, could slash another 3.1 million jobs by 2040.
- Biden imposed a 60-day moratorium on oil and gas leases on federal lands. The American Petroleum Institute calculates that, if made permanent, Biden’s ban will cost nearly 1 million jobs.
These lost jobs are all free-market jobs created by actual demand and funded by businesses, not forced into existence by the will of politicians spending other people’s money.
The former stimulates investment and growth and the entire economy, the latter retards it.
That’s right, retards.
Suppresses, confines, limits, restricts.
The Ute Indian’s spoke for all of us when they declared that Joe Biden’s actions were “a direct attack on our economy, sovereignty, and our right to self-determination.” They were looking for a carve-out, but what they meant was can we have Trump back in office? He opened up opportunity and hen left us alone.
I wonder if they have any other reservations about a Biden Presidency? I know I do. As do the millions of union, energy workers, and unskilled first-time labor, all of whom are going to be looking for work in an economy that Democrat policy has deliberately cinched up like a sphincter.
And no, learning to code won’t help.
