10.3 Million Jobs Added Since President Biden Took Office
November 4, 2022
While Republicans are running on a closing economic message that could crash the economy if they can’t cut key programs like Social Security and Medicare, President Joe Biden is staying laser-focused on delivering real wins for the American people. President Joe Biden puts working Americans first — whether it’s bringing manufacturing jobs back home, making our economy more competitive against China, or lowering health care costs. Yet Republicans have voted against the American worker at every turn.
Since President Biden took office, the economy added nearly 10.3 million new jobs — 261,000 last month alone.
CNBC: “U.S. payrolls surged by 261,000 in October, better than expected as hiring remains strong”
CBS News: “Hiring stayed strong in October, with U.S. employers adding 261,000 jobs”
It’s no wonder why: President Biden is putting his economic agenda into action, bringing manufacturing back to America and creating an economy that works for everyone — something that the Republican Party has railed against at every possible opportunity.
CNN: “The House of Representatives on Thursday passed a long-awaited bill aimed at boosting US semiconductor production in a bid to increase American competitiveness…”
CNN: “Following Senate Democrats’ announcement of a deal on Wednesday evening for a separate economic package, Republican sources told CNN that House GOP leaders would whip against the semiconductor legislation…”
The Republican Party’s economic agenda? Using America’s fiscal stability as leverage to force cuts to programs like Social Security and Medicare.
Bloomberg Government: “Social Security and Medicare eligibility changes, spending caps, and safety-net work requirements are among the top priorities for key House Republicans who want to use next year’s debt-limit deadline to extract concessions from Democrats.”
We’ve seen this all before: the Republican Party isn’t interested in putting the economic needs of the American worker first; they would rather play games with the economy to push their extreme agenda and jeopardize millions of Americans’ hard-earned benefits.
