Biden Blasted by Conservative Groups Over 'Gaslighting' on Recession

Linkedin Share

The American people have long understood that Joe Biden isn’t exactly the most capable President we’ve ever had, and his White House’s inaction on the issues surrounding out economy are proof positive of that.

Biden wasn’t a very enthusiastic candidate in 2020, having been goaded into running by a Democratic Party convinced of his ability to steal away moderate voters from then-incumbent President Donald Trump.  And, now that Biden has made it to the White House, his reticence to lead has been rather obvious, with the Commander in Chief having allowed a number of crises to spiral out of control…including the trouble with the economy.

Conservative groups are now blasting the President over his inaction, and his combative attitude regarding it.

Conservative groups are slamming President Biden and his administration for attempting to “gaslight” Americans into believing that the country isn’t in a recession.

The country entered a technical recession as the U.S. economy shrank by 0.9%, meaning that the country has seen a negative gross domestic product figure for a second straight quarter.

Prior to the advance estimate of the country’s GDP on July 28, the White House Council of Economic Advisors said that even if the figure is negative, it’s still “unlikely” to be an indicator that the country is in a recession.

“Based on these data, it is unlikely that the decline in GDP in the first quarter of this year — even if followed by another GDP decline in the second quarter — indicates a recession,” a post on the White House website states.

But we are in a recession, despite the President’s arrogant assertion.

Will Hild, executive director of Consumers’ Research told Fox News Digital that the country is in the middle of a recession despite what Biden and his administration suggest.

“The GDP numbers don’t lie— under the Biden Administration, we are building back broker,” Hild said. “Regardless of how the White House tries to spin it, the Biden recession is here to stay as everyday Americans are facing higher prices from the grocery store to the gas pump.”

And then:

Executive Director of Heritage Action for America Jessica Anderson said that the Biden administration is trying to redefine what the term “recession” is.

“No matter how the Biden administration attempts to gaslight the American people or redefine the term ‘recession,’ we all feel the inflationary effects of his economic policies in our wallets,” Anderson said.  As our economy’s growth slows, inflation soars, and interest rates hike, the American people are pleading with the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress to stop their reckless spending and get our fiscal house in order.”

Biden’s unwillingness to admit that we are in a recession is indicative of his lack of tethering to reality, and doesn’t bode well for his reelection hopes in 2024.
