In a stage whisper. When both MSN and FoxNews comment on Biden’s strange whispering into the microphone at a press conference, it is noteworthy. Biden literally said the quiet part out loud about government hostility to small business. Let’s go to the official transcript from the June 24 remarks on the infrastructure deal.
Remember you were asking me — and I’m not being critical of you all; I really mean this. It was legitimate questions you were asking me — asking me, “Well, you know, guess what? Employers can’t find workers.” [stage whisper] I said, “Yeah. Pay them more.” [/stage whisper] This is an employee’s — employee’s bargaining chip now what’s happening. They’re going to have to compete and start playing [sic] hardworking people a decent wage.
So, government has deliberately crushed small businesses, enriching a handful of mega-corporations who are already closely tied with the Democratic Party while tossing a few bones to the RepubliCAN’T party. Mitch McConnell and his gang were in charge when the business-crushing mandates issued forth, and they went right along with the Democrats setting the enhanced unemployment payment trap for any who would try recovering truly local or truly small businesses. Their hands are not clean.
Biden just stage whispered what was supposed to stay among friends. The federal government, our Congress, inflated the value of not working at all on the books. They did so rather than incentivizing a direct federalization of the federally imposed personal and business debt from deferred rent, mortgage, and lease payments. We got bipartisan multi-trillion dollar money printing in the name of COVID-19 relief and safety, so “but we can’t afford that” is no real objection.
Now Biden spoke the real position of our governing elite. Small businesses will have to “compete” against the government-stacked deck and likely just die out, leaving small business people broke or bankrupt. The Walmarts and Amazons will benefit, as they have over the past year. These will work hand-in-glove with federal bureaucrats to drive the left’s agenda without any need to worry about local opinion.Published in
