A vulnerable Democrat representative in Pennsylvania is trying to present the economy in a positive light heading into 2022.
In a recent appearance on MSNBC, Susan Wild elaborated on a letter she co-authored with other vulnerable Democrats, expressing concern over inflation and the supply chain. She said that while it is important to keep economics at the forefront of people’s minds, jobs are being filled and the economy is doing very well.
“I want to make sure that we keep economic issues at the top of the priority list for our leadership,” stated the Democrat. “But at the same time, I think that the rumors of this economic demise are greatly exaggerated. I think we’re in really good shape headed into 2022.”
According to recent polls, 90 percent of voters are worried about the economy with 87 percent worried about inflation in particular.
Last night, I joined @AymanMSNBC with a clear message for Congress:
It’s time to turn our attention towards legislation that will address the supply chain shortages and tackle rising costs.
