(MAGA News) – Comments made by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki regarding Biden’s callous answer to a restaurateur highlight just how out of touch the Biden regime is with American business owners.
During the failed CNN town hall event on Wednesday, “Ol Joe” was asked by a restaurateur how he’s supposed to hire workers when the government is paying Americans plenty of money to stay home due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Biden chastised the business owner and told him he should pay more to find workers. In essence, he should “compete” with the government and make a more enticing offer.
.@POTUS‘ response to this struggling restaurateur shows a blatant disregard for the policies he has signed that have created this issue.
I am proud to join @RepBlaine‘s ENTRÉE Act—to aid America’s struggling restaurant owners.
Restaurateurs are struggling in Biden’s America. https://t.co/lk7Dq9fJxM

Psaki was asked about Biden’s answer and doubled down saying the small business owner should compete with the government and pay more wages.
The Wall Street Journal reported an unemployed couple living in a blue state can make up to $100,000 a year in state and federal benefits just by staying home.
According to the National Restaurant Association, more than 110,000 eating and drinking businesses closed down in 2020 and nearly 2.5 million jobs disappeared. Overall sales fell by $240 billion in 2020 from an expected level of $899 billion.
This is what the Biden regime thinks of small business owners!
The bottom line is that businesses like restaurants can’t compete with government benefits and the Biden regime doesn’t seem to care about the longterm consequences their policies will have on business owners and the economy.
