Congressman Fred Keller (R-Pa.) called on the Biden administration to step aside and reopen the economy. During an appearance on the House floor this week, he called the current economic crisis “troubling but not surprising.”
The Pennsylvania lawmaker pointed out “skyrocketing inflation, rising gas prices and growing unemployment” are the results of a White House that believes more government is the solution. He pointed to the April jobs report, noting Joe Biden is promoting government control rather than the sustainability of having a job.
“Biden’s policies are detrimental to our economic recovery and are the last thing America needs,” Keller stated. “Even more frustrating, the solution to get us back on track has been present all along: reopen the economy, stop piling debt on our children and get Americans back to work.”

Keller continued, asserting now is the time for government to get out of the way and let Americans reclaim control of their lives as well as their government.
