Just over a year until we elect a president, a report finds that nearly 90 million Americans are struggling financially so much that they are having trouble making ends meet.
The Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey showed that 89.1 million people say they are having problems paying all their monthly bills and expenses.
Per Just the News:
That statistic increased to 38.5% of adults this year, compared to 34.4% one year ago and 26.7% during the same period in 2021.
According to a report from Bloomberg, more Americans are struggling financially, even more than in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a Census Bureau survey.
During the 2023 State of the Union address, Biden claimed to have created 800,000 new jobs and cut the deficit by $1.7 trillion.
Trump has blasted Biden over the data.
“Joe Biden has been a disaster for the economy,” Trump said on Truth Social. “Between his massive tax hikes, his anti-energy crusade, and his trillions of dollars in wasteful spending, Biden caused the highest inflation in almost half a century.”
“As a result, interest rates soared to crushing levels and now we are seeing bank failures that nobody believed even possible just two years ago,” he said.
Things are going to get worse, according to financial experts.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is refusing to negotiate with Republicans on the debt ceiling debate because he wants to ramp up even more wild spending. And he is even floating fantasy ideas about using the 14th Amendment to force his will on Congress. But even his own Treasury Secretary says that the amendment can’t be used for that.
