Not Buying Bidenomics
What to know: Why aren’t Americans buying the claim that Bidenomics is working? Because they can see the reality.
The TPPF take: The simple fact is that American families are worse off under President Biden—and the spin can’t hide that.
“Even Biden’s allies in the media are doing their best to convince Americans of what they know isn’t true—that families are better off in 2024 than they were in 2020,” says TPPF’s Robert Henneke. “That’s the Achilles Heel of the Biden administration and indeed, the Democrats’ hopes for November. The Democratic Party has put aside kitchen table issues for a basket of woke.”

What to know: Online applications are now open for Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The TPPF take: The new FAFSA site suffered from implementation hurdles smacking of negligence at best—and incompetence at worst.
“What went wrong was misprioritization by the Department of Education, particularly the office of Federal Student Aid (FSA), which is responsible for the FAFSA,” says TPPF’s Andrew Gillen. “The Wall Street Journal editorial page suspects that ‘Richard Cordray, the Federal Student Aid chief operating officer, has prioritized implementing various loan forgiveness schemes. The FAFSA has been a side project, and it shows.’”

What to know: Environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies, once the latest craze in America’s boardrooms, haven’t really gone anywhere, the Wall Street Journal reports—they’re simply being called something else, such as “responsible business.”
The TPPF take: Woke capitalism—taking the form of ESG (environmental, social and governance) rules—is a scam that takes aim at industries the woke left doesn’t like.
“The ESG movement typically targets industries deemed politically incorrect, including fossil fuel exploration and production, as well as firearm manufacturing and selling,” says TPPF’s Greg Sindelar. “ESG policies can also lead to criminal collusion between investment firms—which are supposed to be competitors.”
