By all accounts, Vice President Mike Pence is a great man and a great leader.
Calm under pressure, sure-fire when it counts, and steady as she goes, the vice commander-in-chief is a true asset to President Trump.
For one, he’s been a champion of the president’s pro-growth, low-regulation agenda, which — pre-coronavirus — created one of the greatest economic success stories in our country’s history.
And thanks to the solid economic foundation that the Trump/Pence ticket built, with a huge assist from the then-GOP Congress’ tax reform law, we’re poised for a massive, record-setting “V-shaped recovery,” according to the vice president.
In an exclusive with Breitbart News, the VP said that very type of recovery has already begun, despite the pooh-poohing and tut-tutting of the garbage establishment media.
Unemployment is back down to 7.9 percent, far better than any experts predicted at this stage, and more than half of those who lost jobs due to the pandemic — more than 11 million Americans — are back at work. The economic recovery is faster under President Donald Trump's leadership than that from the last major economic downturn after the 2008 financial crisis. Former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden took four full years to bring unemployment down to 7.9 percent, where it stood in October 2012 when they were re-elected.
'Almost no economist thought we would be under 8 percent before the end of the year,' Pence told Breitbart News. 'This is a V-shaped recovery.'
In other words, it took Trump and Pence four months to accomplish for the economy in a recovery phase what it took Obama and Biden — now the 2020 Democrat presidential candidate — four years to achieve. Pence warned, however, that if Biden were elected, he would significantly slow the recovery from the pandemic with his promise to raise taxes on Americans — Biden has consistently pledged to undo the Trump tax cuts — thereby hampering any efforts to bring back the U.S. economy.
Here is more of what Pence said:
'I think the only thing standing in the way of 2021 being the greatest year in the history of this economy is the prospect of Joe Biden being elected president of the United States.
“There is no economist left, right, or center who would tell you raising taxes by $4 trillion is the right thing to do in the middle of a global pandemic. Nobody. Maybe Breitbart can go out and find one, but I've literally been told by our top economists: 'find the most liberal Keynesian you can possibly find and nobody thinks you should raise taxes in the middle of a pandemic as people are trying to go back to work.'
'In the days ahead, you're going to see the president and me and all of our surrogates continue to focus on their economic agenda which would crush jobs.”
“Joe Biden in a presidential debate denied that he supports the Green New Deal but it's on his website. USA Today confirmed that there's 'very little difference' between AOC's Green New Deal that Kamala Harris was the original cosponsor of in the Senate and the Biden-Harris plan. That would crush jobs.”
“I talked about it a little bit today — I riffed about it. The public option? I mean, Joe Biden isn't just committed to funding the failed Obamacare that 'if you like your doctor you can keep it,' 'if you like your health insurance you can keep it,' 'we'll lower insurance premiums.' All three of those things were false. But he has added, after their Democratic primaries, the public option.'
'I said today to have a government insurance option competing with private insurance, I said the government competes with the private sector the way an alligator competes with a duck.”
'What socialized medicine will ultimately do is cause 180 million Americans to lose their private health insurance, which if you remember Kamala Harris said 'let's move on.”
“In the middle of the Obamacare debate, Bernie Sanders —champion for socialized medicine — was asked by a reporter 'how come you're supporting Obamacare instead of what they used to call universal healthcare' back then? He responded that Obamacare is the quickest way to get to universal healthcare. He affirmed, and I honestly believe that most Democrats knew this structure created by Obamacare was not sustainable and it would simply be a pathway to socialized medicine.”
'I see it all over the country. People want jobs and opportunity; they want law and order; what they want are our institutions to respect our liberty, and I really do believe on every one of those things that, as we continue to present the president's record in those first three years.”
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
