Reader's View: Give Biden credit for improving economy

Yet, it is my recollection that, just a few weeks ago, many of those now failing to credit the president for these economic improvements were very ready — yes, even falling over each other — to castigate the president and his party for their failure to control gas prices and improve the job market.

On the morning of July 8, the news told us that not only has the price of gasoline gone down but the U.S. economy added 372,00 jobs in June. Obviously, this must be due to the untiring efforts of the political party currently in the majority in Washington. D.C.

Certainly, there will be those who fail to credit President Joe Biden and his untiring efforts to control inflation and create jobs. They have every right to deny the president is responsible. Yet, it is my recollection that, just a few weeks ago, many of those now failing to credit the president for these economic improvements were very ready — yes, even falling over each other — to castigate the president and his party for their failure to control gas prices and improve the job market.

It is my considered opinion that we all owe the president and his party credit for economic improvements in the same measure as was so eagerly used to criticize the president and the Democrats for the rise in inflation.

I appreciate the unstinting efforts of President Biden and Democratic senators and U.S. House members to reverse the rise in gas prices and improve the economy.
