That's Mr. Walkaway for ya. Play the Blame game and run to Jill to change his diaper.Biden Turns His Back On Reporters, Refuses To Answer Questions On Supply Chain Crisis
During the remarks, Biden threatened to take action if private sector companies did not fix the problem, saying, “If the private sector doesn’t step up, we’re going to call them out and ask them to act.”

Ten grand is about how much you make working full-time in New York City on the minimum wage for four months, for eight months at the federal rate. It’s the average annual rent in West Virginia (the least expensive in the country), and less than half the average price paid for used vehicles in 2020.
