On Friday, amid the new booming jobs report, showing 164,000 more jobs created in July, Rep. Deb Haaland dismissed the positive numbers, instead choosing to bash the numbers, writing in a Twitter graphic “While it’s nice that the unemployment rate is low, people shouldn’t have to work three jobs to make ends meet.”
Again, this is a clear example of Haaland and her fellow Democrats deciding to look for the exception instead of the rule. What she’s telling her constituents is that it doesn’t matter if the economy is good or the fact that they don’t feel like they are constantly drowning.
Haaland seems to echo the sophomoric comments made by fellow freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who said: “Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week, and can barely feed their kids.” This totally fake talking point was viciously disputed by the far-left Politifact website with a “pants on fire” rating for its inaccuracy.
PolitiFact writes: “Even taking into account rhetorical excess, her statement is off in multiple ways. Fewer than one in 20 employed Americans holds a second job of any type, and the people who might be working as much as 70 or 80 hours a week represent a tiny fraction of that tiny fraction. The rates for either statistic are not high by historical standards.”
Noah Bloomberg of Bloomberg pointed out that “the number of Americans working two jobs is around 5 percent of the workforce, another historic low.”
As someone who has literally had to work three jobs to make ends meet at times since President Trump took office, this rocking economy has definitely helped me, and now I’m not forced to work three jobs just to keep the lights on.
Haaland would rather see you suffer and “RESIST” Trump than see you succeed under his Administration
Deb Haaland and her fellow Democrats would rather see people starve than credit President Trump for our booming economy. Thankfully, people are not suffering, and her deceptive rhetoric, insinuating that more people have to work three jobs is beneath her office.
Because of President Trump’s policies, Americans are seeing more money in their paychecks, and New Mexico’s economy is booming (that is until leftist NM politicians’ radical policies begin to take effect).
