Joe Biden on Wednesday traveled to Cleveland Ohio to deliver remarks on his American Rescue Plan at Max Hayes High School.
Biden attacked Trump, blamed Vladimir Putin for high gas prices and soaring food costs – while simultaneously claiming the Republicans are blocking his efforts to lower prices.
“We all remember what the economy was like when I was elected, a country in a pandemic with no real plans how to get out of it. Millions of people out of their jobs… The previous administration lost more jobs on his watch than any administration since Herbert Hoover,” Biden said attacking Trump with lies.
“We made incredible progress on the economy from where we were a year-and-a-half ago. We’ve got a long way to go because of inflation, because of the, I call it the Putin tax increase, the Putin, because of gasoline… I’m fighting like hell to lower costs on things,” Biden said.
Biden then claimed Republican lawmakers are obstructing his efforts to bring down prices.
“Republicans do nothing but obstruct our effort to lower your gas taxes, lower your food prices, lower your healthcare costs, lower your prescription drug costs,” Biden said.
This is brazen even for a serial liar and lifelong grifter like Joe Biden.
