In early 2021 an upbeat Joe Biden boasted he would end the COVID virus by the summer of 2021 - by following "the science," no less.

In reaction, the Left is now calling for realism - and is even newly curious about the origins of the virus and the need to "get back to normal."
As Consumer Prices increased by the the largest annual rate since June 1982, experts now say they fear a wage-price spiral could raise costs even more in the future – heaping further pressure on President Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats to address what has become the biggest threat to the U.S. economy in decades.

She is right.
"The Biden Jobs Deficit – the difference between jobs created and those he promised to create as part of his so-called 'stimulus' – has metastasized...
