     Congressional Republicans insisted last Friday that the disappointing September jobs report showed that President Biden’s economic plan was not working. “President Biden’s delusions have suggested for months his economic plan is ‘working,'” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted Friday. “Anyone who saw today’s jobs report knows it’s failing. Democrats have turned what should have been an economic resurgence coming out of the pandemic into an economic crisis.” US employers added just 194,000 jobs in September — fewer than the 336,000 jobs added in August and the fewest since December of last year, when employers actually cut jobs amid a winter surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths.  Republicans must show backbone - Biden is a  liar.

     Biden attempted to put a positive spin on the worst jobs report of his administration by pointing to a decline in the unemployment rate from 5.2 percent to 4.8 percent — even though economists say that’s a reflection of fewer Americans seeking work. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, said the report was “more dreadful news for America’s slowing recovery, for Main Street businesses struggling to find workers, and for families whose paychecks just can’t keep up with higher prices. 

     “President Biden is now a whopping 944,000 jobs short of what he promised from his last stimulus and worse, has lost the confidence of the American people to lead the economy,” Brady added. “If this were a football team with this losing record, the coach would be searching for a new job at this point.” “The September Jobs Report is the worst of Joe Biden’s presidency,” tweeted Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC), another member of the Ways and Means Committee. “Incentivizing Americans to stay out of the workforce is having a drastic effect on our economy.”
