    1. Indeed. Not only is Biden cleaning up Trump’s mess in record time, he’s out performing him on job numbers, economy, and approval rating.

      Biden is putting the US back on the right path.

  1. And yet people are already critiquing this administration‘a progress. Hasn’t been a month and this administration has already done way more in a months time than last admin, not to mention Biden’s approval rating being better than trump’s 4 years in office.

    1. Legit criticism when you consider the push back and Russiagate be they starting pushing right away. Or that Biden was critical of Trump signing executive prders and bow he has signed the most in history in gis first week. Per that he promised 2000 within a week and now its almost 3 months we can expect. There is a lot to be critical of.

    2. @Angelo Jones if you want to reply with a counter statement with holes, at the very least proof read and spell check so I don’t get another headache trying to read your laughable response.

  2. 25 days in and fixing things already think if that what he has done in a month what is going to be done in a year. America choose the right man and remember to always vote blue because if the Republicans get in again it will all fall apart

    1. @Bruce LOL. You should see your doctor soon. Maybe he can prescribe some reality pills for you.
      Prior to Covid-19, the USA had the lowest unemployment rate in over half a century, with record GDP growth. The stock market hit all time record highs. The African-American and Hispanic unemployment rates were the lowest ever in US history. Your ideology is blinding you to reality.

    2. @ArpMan Maybe you should look into that pill also. The economy was being hyped by mass debt. It is the Trump way of doing business; smoke, mirrors, and deception.

    3. @John Smith And the economy wasn’t hyped by mass debt under Obama? And won’t be under Biden? What helped to stimulate the tremendous job growth prior to Covid-19 were the numerous deregulation policies and tariffs during the Trump administration. It’s obvious to anyone with an ounce of objectivity that Biden is putting (to be correct, the Democrat party string pullers are telling Biden what to do) party agenda before American citizens.

  3. This is why we need more stimulus NOW. The economy won’t start getting back to “normal” until the next couple of years.

  4. Obama inherited a tRashed economy from The Bush’s! It took Obama 2 terms to get the American economy back to health. Then tRump took this healthy robust economy and tRashed it like he desecrated and tRashed the White House and Capital Hill. Now Joe Biden has his work cut out for him and us!

    1. I think you’re giving too much weight to the power of the President to affect the economy. In fact, since the Republicans were in charge of Congress for the last 6 years of Obama’s term in office, a good argument could be made that it was Republican policies which guided the recovery.
      I’m not a Republican, and would never vote for one, but Presidents don’t control the budget – that’s Congress’ doing.

    2. @omi god I’s still give Trump the blame for the screw up, his mismanagement of the Covid crisis is one of the main reason that the economy is tanking. Because he downplayed the seriousness of the virus and his cultist following suit we are in a lot worse shape than if we had followed the science.

  5. Record unemployment rates are exactly why there’s not much risk of inflation, when it comes to stimulus. Getting the money into the economy quickly is more important than micro targeting at this point. You can always tax and re-purpose the funds next year.

    1. @Real Talk76 6.2% unemployment is not “record unemployment”, and – as I said – once the pandemic is passed, we’ll be back to normal levels.

    1. i dont think u watched the vid. Even if u came here just to troll, at least watch the video first or else you’re embarrassing yourself

    1. @Marisela Cronin how is it negative when its the truth. The unemployment rate is higher than what they claim. If they showed the real numbers then no problem but if they hide it for political reasons then we have every reason to react

    1. Exactly! You know his meth head toothless cultists are going to try to give him the credit though LOL just like he took credit for trends under Obama

  6. NBC.JOE

  7. *No 1: Don’t Only Hope On Government For Income,*

    *No 2: As An Individual Look For Different Self Income Not Only Waiting on Monthly Wages,*

    *No 3: Always Save The Little You Can And Think Of What To Do With It When It Become Good For Capital.*

    *It’s 100% Good To Have Different Ways To Gain Income*

    *Because Government have failed us so therefore let’s try and survive*

    1. How’s about we all band together and demand they stop taxing us on our income and Cash Flowing side businesses. We pay taxes to the government to be a public service to help the people of this country to solve problems but with the way things are going they’re becoming more of a dictator then a government based on democracy of problem solving, innovation, and creativity.

  8. When do you people start to look at the employment rate, not the unemployment rate. It doesn’t matter how many filed for unemployment, important for the economy and a nation is the employment rate. That shows how many people have an income and some work. And that should be above 75% for a healthy and sustainable economy.

  9. Such a bunk number, everyone knows it’s still probably 15%+ because the numbers don’t track those who don’t file for benefits or have run out. That 6.3% has a ton of qualifications.

  10. 49,000 new jobs, Ah is there a list for those new jobs, and is there a list of 49,000 people applying for those jobs, is that work from home jobs. And Coronavirus is still a problem not everybody is getting vaccinated especially people who are skeptic about vaccinations.

  11. I hope you have an amazing 2021,Please repent because Jesus is coming soon.

    Like so more people can see this..
