White House Supporter Opposes Biden Narrative on Job Shortage

Jason Furman

A prominent White House ally has turned against President Joe Biden’s narrative that lack of child care services is the source of April’s low jobs report. Instead, he points to the left’s extension of increased unemployment benefits as the problem.

Harvard professor Jason Furman, whom worked for the Obama-Biden administration, presented the evidence that disproved the White House narrative.

“School closures and lack of child care are not holding back the recovery,” Furman reported to Politico. “And conversely, we shouldn’t expect a short-term economic bump from reopening schools and making child care more available.”

Furman added “the factors responsible for the slow employment recovery and depressed labor supply are issues that are not exclusively related to the struggles of working parents, such as the continued concern about the threat of getting COVID-19 at work or expanded unemployment insurance benefits and eligibility.”

 

The White House has offered a different response, according to press secretary Jen Psaki.

“We don’t see much evidence that the extra unemployment insurance is a major driver in people not rejoining the workforce,” Psaki said. “There are other factors—bigger factors—that have been contributing to the numbers we saw on Friday.”

Despite the White House warning, several states are beginning to end pandemic-level unemployment benefits. Arkansas, Montana and South Carolina were the first three to join the growing movement.

All three states are Republican-led conservative states, indicating conservatives are taking aim at the problem outside of Washington’s support.

Good for them. For our nation to get back to work, some people need an incentive. While some truly need unemployment assistance, too many are sucking every possible advantage from the government to stay home and not contribute.

The American dream requires an American work ethic. Unfortunately, too many have bought into the socialist dream that lets the government care for our needs instead of supporting ourselves. Our nation wasn’t started by founding fathers who leaned on government funding. We’ve become a great nation by rejecting big government and pursing individual freedom and responsibility.

If it takes tightening unemployment laws to push people back into the job force, so be it. Each state has the responsibility to do what it takes to improve its economy and the lives of its people.

The unemployment benefits of the pandemic were never supposed to be long-term. But then neither was the pandemic. Remember, it wasn’t COVID-19 that closed our nation. It was the government.

That same government can decide to decrease regulations and allow a free society to flourish. It not only can; it should. In fact, it must if America expects to surge back to pre-pandemic levels.

Trump excelled at running the economy pre-pandemic. Now we finally get to see how Democrats do once people stop hiding at home from school and work.

So far, it hasn’t been much different.

Biden won’t leave Washington. Harris won’t visit the border. Most Democrat run states still require people to wear masks in nearly every situation—even if they are fully vaccinated. They’re also trying to push vaccine passport requirements which would invade our privacy.

Time to stop pretending America is on paid leave and get back to work.

  1. Whitehouse and everyone connected there are PATHOLOGICAL LIARS right now, they are Anti-American Terrorists and should be removed/arrested/ and tried for HIGH TREASON against the USA, and under the constitution HANGED.

    One Pissed Off USMC Veteran

    1. Thank you for your service !!! and yes everyone of those Communist Democrats should pay the price for treason under the Constitution

  2. Jen Psad Psak probably can’t wait to start getting her unemployment checks because “Fabricating illogical answers” and “Circling Back” is becoming boring

  3. I have to agree on the unemployment’ payments, that’s why no one wants to return to the work force. Hell if I could sit home on my ass and draw $600.00 a week, why bust my ass in some factory, or construction site. Same way with all the stimulus payments. Somebody will have to pay this back to the government. Poor grandkids and great grandkids. Hey I took the stimulus payments, at 81 and on SS, the stimulus sure helped out, but like I said someone is going to pay this back, one way or another.

  4. Stop giving away my tax dollars. There are plenty of jobs. Man is by nature lazy, and giving my tax dollars away when there are plenty of jobs available is just plain stupid, but we are talking about Democrats (Communists) here, so what else would you expect.

  5. Sure seems like the American people understand what is going on and what needs to get done! I get 100 email and text requests for help- meaning send money- but every email , text and phone call to GOP and Republicans go unanswered. Yesterday I called NRCC and said if I can’t get a few answers- such as are staffers required to say that the election were fair and honest- and a few other questions as to where we are headed then I want my donations refunded. This morning I had a notice that 5 donation were back in my credit card account. Unbelievable! I even said I don’t really want a refund-I just want to know what the GOP stands for and where we are head. Said they do not have authority to asnwer questions and don’t have a supervisor. Do you want your money refunded? I said YES and that 12 hours. I am a huge conservative supporter but unfortunately I have to wonder about the GOP. I suggest that other do the same maybe- just maybe they will realized real Americans want change,

  6. Bad news for those who want to seize our accounts you think there’s trouble in the streets today you don’t want to open another can of worms very very bad news
