Joe Biden’s policies have been disastrous for the American people. But his inability to get his facts straight, are making things even worse.
And President Biden is in shambles after being caught in this damaging lie.
For the past two years, Americans have dealt with a failing economy and government spending that’s through the roof.
Biden however, believes the opposite is true.
While speaking in Philadelphia for Labor Day, the President said, “Unlike the last president, in my first two years – all this stuff, guess what? – I cut the deficit $1.7 trillion, cut the debt $1.7 trillion.”
Just like a lot of what Joe Biden says, this statement was incorrect.
“The claim, which Biden has made in the past, routinely attracts unflattering fact checks because government spending remains at near-record highs – while much of the previous reduction came from the expiration of COVID-19 emergency spending, rather than the president’s own actions” according to the New York Post.
“In reality, the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget projects that the federal deficit for fiscal 2023, which ends Sept. 30, will hit $2 trillion – roughly double what it was last year.”
Republicans in the U.S. House are quick to point out just how much the deficit has risen under Biden’s watch.
“The federal budget deficit will explode to $2 trillion this year – after Biden said it would decrease,” Congressman Andy Harris (R-MD) said in a post on social media.
“We need to control the runaway spending by this administration – and the budget fight this month is the time to do it.”

Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) also urged Republicans to stand up to the reckless spending President Biden and his Democrat pals are responsible for.
“Republicans should not fund … the things they campaign against – and then just shrug … border … DOJ weaponization … DOD wokeness … IRS abuse … COVID tyranny.”

In the meantime, Democrats under Biden’s leadership, will continue to pile on to the national debt.
The New York Post reports that “The national debt has increased overall by more than $5 trillion since Biden took office, from $27.75 trillion to about $32.8 trillion.”
“Interest-rate hikes are hammering ordinary borrowers, as well – with average consumer credit-card interest rates now 27.99% – almost double the 14.6% average when Biden took office.”
Joe Biden continues to assure Americans that he has everything under control, despite the obvious signs that government spending continues to rise.
