Economists cast doubt on Biden’s claim of ‘most robust recovery’ in history

In a faltering — and infuriating — push to combat his plummeting job approval numbers, President Joe Biden has been taking every opportunity he can find to boast of the “job recovery” he claims to have orchestrated since taking office, but as the Daily Wire reports, those assertions are being met with serious skepticism from all corners.

Earlier this month, Biden weighed in on the May jobs numbers and declared, “Today, thanks to the economic plan and the vaccination plan that my administration put into action, America has achieved the most robust recovery in modern history,” a claim he has repeated in varying iterations numerous times in recent weeks.

It is, according to the Daily Wire, worth remembering that the country was sent careening into a recession back in March of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and its attendant lockdowns, but ever since mitigation protocols began to ease, workers have been able to return to jobs held prior to the crisis.

That resumption of employment after a lengthy period of government-imposed inactivity is apparently the “job recovery” for which Biden is claiming credit, though even left-leaning fact-checking outlet Politifact had to admit in March that such statements from Biden regularly admit key context.

Brian Riedl, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, put things more bluntly when it comes to assessing the validity of Biden’s claims, declaring, “COVID restrictions were lifted. That’s it!”

“President Biden is taking credit for jobs that were going to come back either way, regardless of any presidential policy, simply because the pandemic re-opened… . He’s taking credit for the simple fact that the pandemic ended and people were called back to work, which was going to happen anyway,” Riedl added.

Also casting a critical eye on the administration’s assertions was Stephen Pociask of the American Consumer Institute Center for Citizen Research, who told the Daily Wire, “They’re giving [Biden] credit for bringing everything back because of COVID… . This is completely the result of COVID, the downturn and the upturn.”

“The question we should be asking ourselves is what, if anything, he’s done in addition to that, and as I’m looking at the statistics today – and I can say now that everything has opened up, the market is back opened up – why aren’t we at the same level that we were in February of 2020? Pociask mused.

Though Biden’s attempt to paint the rosiest possible economic picture is certainly understandable, given the electoral bloodbath his party is poised to suffer in November, it fatally relies on the erroneous assumption that the populace has a serious case of amnesia that predates the pandemic and is as profoundly gullible as Democrats typically assume.
