Biden’s infra plan would create 2.7M jobs, not 19M, White House says

The White House clarified Tuesday that President Biden’s infrastructure package will create roughly 2.7M jobs, not 19M jobs. Citing a study by Moody’s, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that the American Jobs Plan would lead to the creation of an additional 2.7M jobs if passed in Congress, aggregating to 19M total jobs over the next decade. Without the plan, 16.3M jobs will be created.

Construction jobs are known as steak and bologna jobs. When youre working you eat steak, when youre not you eat bologna. Most of these jobs will be "fillers" construction jobs that end as soon as the task is completed. Not sure if that wualifies as "jobs created", they are just temporary or "seasonal" as some of the big industry jobs would call it.

Yet another campaign promise broken. See also that they are going to "plug holes" in the border wall. Why do people vote for these scammers?

Wait $2 trillion for 2 million jobs? Do the math! That's ~ $1 million/job. Even if these jobs last q0 years that's still $100k/year/job. "Nice work, if you can get it! And if you get it, won't you please tell me how!"

Y'all democrats keep believing in your daddy to build jobs. LMAO Biden couldn't do anything that Obama hasn't try and failed at. Just like the green deal for Obama all those companies he throw money at are out of business or tbe billionaires democrats have brought them out and dissolved them into there own companies like Tesla for example. Obama help build those billionaire into what he is today. Tell Obama thank you. This is just like Obama so we will call it Obama 2.0

“Biden said in a Friday speech: "Independent analysis shows that if we pass this plan, the economy will create 19 million jobs..." Unlike Buttigieg and Deese, Biden didn't say the estimate is that infrastructure proposal itself would create 19 million jobs. But the President's artful formulation failed to make clear that Moody's believes that about 16.3 million of these 19 million jobs will be added regardless of whether the infrastructure proposal is signed into law.” Thats a direct quote From one of the articles. Biden didn’t lie per say, just communicated poorly, he should’ve specified that a good chunk of the jobs would be created regardless. But 2.7Mil jobs is still good, new jobs are always good. He does need to work on his stutter and speech to avoid huge mistakes like these

1.3 million people will be paid to dig a big hole, 1.3 million will be paid to fill it back up, and 100,000 will be paid to dump White House files into the hole while it's empty.

He'll create 2.7 million jobs...ok, assuming (I know, but just for argument sake) ole Joe's numbers are actually correct. How many arent temporary or seasonal? And taking into consideration the border crisis, what's the net jobs gain/loss factoring in all the illegal aliens your allowing to enter our country illegally? That jobs number gets smaller and smaller fast.

Except for kids paid for directly from the bill itself, exactly what jods will be created. This bill is exactly like the Covid bill. Full of pork and massively wasteful. Do we even know which bridges or roads will be repired/built using money from this bill. Has a single cent of it actually been costed. We all know this is yet another bill to prop up mainly the failed blue states who's policies over the past few years have left these states in massive debt with high taxes and homeless people everywhere dedicating in the streets and openly injecting themselves with all manner of drugs. Places like California are losing billions in tax revenue as corporations and the population leave for states which won't take half their salaries in state taxes and they can actually afford to buy decent homes.

Cut the fat out and focus a bill that actually spends money to build, repair, and upgrade infrastructure. Don't let Gillibrand define infrastructure in the bill btw.
