Poor word selection on my part. Oil production wasn't shut down, but, scaled way back from it's peak. And while this administration has reduced oil production in this country, they opened the strategic reserves for the Chinese company that Hunter invested in and went to beg the Saudis to increase their production while refusing to approve drilling permits in this country. The Biden Administration is doing all they can (except allowing domestic drilling) to lower gas prices leading into November...then will allow prices to skyrocket again.1. When did the government shut down oil production? Oh...they didn't. In fact, oil production decreased by around 30% in march 2020. It is now back to within a million barrels per day of 2019 production.
2. There are jobs. We can't find workers. Pandemic unemployment money already ended.
As far as not being able to find workers, pandemic unemployment ended, but, the welfare programs attached to the pandemic are still in full force...increased food stamps, increased child tax credits, increased EITC, increased Obama care.
Spin as much as you want, use manipulated statistics as much as you want, and tow the party line as much as you want...the majority of Americans, correctly, believe what they see, not the lies and garbage they hear.
We'll see what happens in November.
