Republican Congresswoman Calls Biden Administration ‘Out Of Touch’

On Monday, House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) sat for an interview and called the Biden administration “out of touch.”

During the interview, which was released on the “Fox News Rundown” podcast, Stefanik also referred to a tweet by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, who implied that inflation is a “high class” problem.

“They are increasingly out of touch,” Stefanik said. “So, it was just over a year ago that the White House Chief of Staff said inflation is a ‘high class’ problem.”

Stefanik is referring to a retweet by Klain on October 13, 2021. In the retweet, Klain points to the article and writes, “This,” in a seeming endorsement of the message.

“Most of the economic problems we’re facing (inflation, supply chains, etc.) are high-class problems,” wrote Jason Furman in the retweeted message. “We wouldn’t have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent.”

“We would instead have had a much worse problem,” Furman added.

Stefanik firmly disagreed with Klain’s support for this assessment of the economy.

“He is dead wrong,” she stated.

Stefanik then explained how inflation affects the entire population, and Klain’s comment demonstrates how disconnected the Biden administration is from the American public.

“First of all, it’s a tax and it’s painful for every American family, but specifically, the working class, people that already have very tight budgets that have gotten even tighter,” Stefanik began. “So, it shows a growing disconnect between Joe Biden and Democrat leadership and the American people.”

“And I don’t need the CEO of JPMorgan Chase to say we’re in tough economic times,” she continued. “I talk to my constituents. They see the interest rate hikes. They see the inflation.”

“People understand, inherently, that we are in a recession and they understand that Joe Biden is woefully out of touch,” she concluded.

The current inflation rate is up 8.2% from this time last year.

At a Baskin-Robbins in Portland, Oregon, over the weekend, Biden said he is worried about the world economy, but he is not worried about the American economy.
