On Fox News Channel’s “The Faulkner Focus” on Thursday, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) tore up President Joe Biden’s economic plan, saying it was “destroying the American dream.”
As House Democrats prepared to hold prime-time committee hearings on Jan. 6, Kennedy acknowledged how the riot at the U.S. Capitol was “disgusting,” but said the American people cared more about inflation, crime, the border crisis, and education.
“I think most Americans are very discouraged right now,” Kennedy said. “They worry about inflation, crime, inflation and the border…and inflation and their children’s education. I am not saying that what happened on January 6 was not disgusting. It was.”
“I’m sure they’ll try to make it look like CSI Miami so the ratings will be high,” he added of the ratings. “It’s their business. But I say what I think people fear when they lay down to sleep at night and can’t.
Kennedy said the Biden administration had “just given up” instead of trying to solve the inflation problem.
“It’s gutting the American people, Harris. It’s destroying the American dream. And we have to fix it,” he stressed. “And it seems to me that the Biden administration just gave up. I overheard Secretary Yellen say the other day, “Damn, I’m sorry. I know I told you it was transient, but it’s going to last a while and I don’t have a solution. Of course I admire the problem, but I don’t have a solution, so get used to it. The American people deserve better than that.
