Biden’s Year Of Crisis And Failure

Today marks the one-year anniversary of Joe Biden being sworn in as President of the United States and the one-year anniversary of one-party far-left Democrat rule in Washington.

The result? A year of unprecedented crises. The American people face an economic crisis, an energy crisis, a border crisis, an education crisis, a crime crisis, a COVID-19 crisis, and a national security crisis because of Biden and Congressional Democrats’ failed leadership and Far-Left Socialist agenda.

Yesterday, during a rare Press Conference Biden asked “What are Republicans for?” That answer is simple: We are for freedom. For family. For security. For prosperity. And we fight for the American people. To secure our border. To stop Socialist tyranny. To save America.

BIDEN’S YEAR OF CRISIS:

  • An Economic Crisis: Inflation is taxation, and it has gone up every month of Biden’s presidency. Now, Americans are paying more for just about everything.
    • Last year, Biden’s Economic Crisis cost the average worker nearly two paychecks and cost the average family $3,500.
    • Inflation has increased every month of Joe Biden’s presidency.
    • Real wages have decreased under Biden 8 out of 11 months since his first full month in office.
    • The December jobs report was the worst of Joe Biden’s presidency with only 199,000 jobs being added.
  • An Energy Crisis: Since taking office, Biden has enacted an anti-energy agenda that has caused energy prices to skyrocket.
    • The national average for a gallon of gas reached $3.28 per gallon in December 2021, with a total rise of 49.6% for the year.
    • Americans are now paying 49.6% more for gas.
      • This is the most Americans have paid at the pump since the Obama-Biden Administration.
    • Home heating costs are projected to rise an average of 30% for American households heating their homes with natural gas this winter and 54% for those using propane.
  • A Border Crisis: Border security is national security, and because of Biden and Congressional Democrats’ open-border policies, every state is a border state.
    • Since Biden took office, over 1.8 MILLION illegal immigrants have been apprehended at our southern border.
    • The number of illegal crossings at the border has risen at a faster rate under Biden than at any time in recent history.
    • Out of 104,171 migrants issued Notices to Report by ICE between the end of March and the end of August 2021, 47,705 failed to report within that timeframe.
    • An unthinkable amount of fentanyl and fentanyl-related substances are coming across our border. Under President Biden’s watch, more pounds of fentanyl were seized at the southern border in FY2021 than in the previous two years combined.
  • An Education Crisis: Biden promised to work to re-open schools in his first 100 days, but his administration secretly worked with teacher union bosses to keep schools closed and label concerned parents as “domestic terrorists.
  • A Crime Crisis: Following a year of defunding the police rhetoric from President Biden and Congressional democrats, over a dozen major U.S. cities had record high homicide rates in 2021.
    • At least 16 U.S. cities have set new homicide records in 2021, according to local police departments.
    • In 2021, there were 346 officers shot, 63 of whom were killed by gunfire.
    • In 2021, there were 103 ambush-style attacks on law enforcement officers, a 115% increase from 2020.
  • A Covid Crisis: Although Biden promised to “shut down” the virus, he FAILED to lead and left many Americans struggling to find tests and many schools still closed.
  • A National Security Crisis: Biden has been weak on the world stage. He has been unable to stand up to our foreign adversaries or with our allies in times of need. Because of Biden’s weakness, our adversaries in Beijing, Tehran, and Moscow are stronger today.
    • Biden is to blame for the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. No one else.
    • Biden showed he is incapable of standing up to Putin and instead, is building a pipeline for him. Now, Russia is emboldened because of Biden’s failed leadership.
    • President Biden and his administration have proven that they will not hold Communist China accountable for its lack of transparency and mishandling of the COVID-19 outbreak.
