At a House Select Committee on the Coronavirus hearing this week, Rep. Jim Jordan (D-OH) ripped Democratic spending in epic fashion.
He asked, “Is the Democrats’ economic plan working?” Jordan rattled off the stats of inflation and economic failures.
Dr. Holtz-Easkin nodded in agreement, calling the plan a “net negative” for the U.S. economy.
Jordan asked if you pay people to stay home, should you be surprised that you can’t find workers?
The doctor said no one would propose this in normal times. Jordan further noted how he was at an event where everywhere he went businesses were advertising job openings, all of them promising workers $15 an hour. Even a Taco truck had a sign advertising $15/hr for workers!
What began as a help with the uncertainty of the coronavirus has become a damaging plan. Now Democrats want to raise taxes on top of all the problems taking place. Holtz-Easkin closed with noting this is a bad plan and “more troubling.”
He notes the return to a higher tax rate is a recipe for problems, something every American should be aware of. Democrats aren’t looking out for Americans or the economy. They seem to only be interested in helping themselves.
