Treasury secretary: 'This is the best of all worlds'

Joe Biden's Treasury secretary, Janet Yellen, has had some startling things to say about the economy.

"I don't see any signs that the economy is at risk of a downturn," she claimed on social media. "And this is the best of all worlds."

Actually, inflation under Joe Biden has surged beyond the 9% mark already, holding at well above 3% even after months of slight declines. That alone has cost American consumers thousands of dollars a year more than when President Trump was in office.

Polls show 76% of respondents blame Biden for a worse economy now than before he took office and studies show consumers are looking for second jobs.

Per a recent CNN poll, 76 percent say Biden’s policies have either worsened economic conditions (58%) or made no difference (18%).

Hitting especially hard are the prices of gasoline for workers to commute. And Yellen even tried to claim that was of concern to Biden.

When Biden took office, a gallon of gas was $2.39. Today, a gallon is $3.88 and the price of gas has been above $3 per gallon for over 850 days.

Biden launched a literal war on America's energy when he took office, closing off exploration opportunities, shutting down pipelines, ending drilling and production and more.

And Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, had a reply to Yellen, and Biden.

If Joe Biden were serious about reducing gas prices, he’d reopen federal lands for energy development.

Gotta love Ted.  We were energy independent, so how does Yellen justify stating that this is the "best of both worlds"?? The economy has already taken a downturn. Is she trying to convince people that the economy is just peachy??  People know the holes that they have in their wallets and telling them the economy is ok, is insulting.
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.  I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

Biden's war against domestic energy is bad for inflation and bad for Americans.
