Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) objected to President Joe Biden’s (D) attempt to spin the job numbers that came out yesterday morning. It is indeed true that part-time jobs have increased by over 200k workers, but what the President forgot to mention is that over 400k full-time jobs have been lost.

In a tweet, the President touted his “accomplishments.”

“Jobs are up, gross domestic product is up, unemployment is down. America is reasserting itself,” tweeted President Biden.

However, the October full-time job loss is too glaring to gloss over. Appropriately, Scott fired back with a take on the October job report of his own.

“Democrats are so desperate to change the narrative about @JoeBiden's economic nightmare, they aren't telling you the full story. "Gaining" 200K jobs, while losing 433K full-time jobs isn't something to celebrate. It's a blow to hardworking Americans,” tweeted Senator Scott.

In a press release, he would go on to mention the truth about what these numbers mean, not only for the nation’s economy, but the morale of the country.

“Growing up, my family was poor, we lived in public housing and we had to watch every penny we spent. My mom would take on odd jobs and multiple jobs to pay the bills and it meant she spent less time with us at home. That’s EXACTLY what’s happening all across the country right now because of Joe Biden’s job-killing economic agenda. I want this country to succeed; I want our economy to grow and for families to have the opportunities promised by the American dream. That’s why, when Republicans are in charge, we’ll end this reckless, inflation-fueling spending, and fix this broken economy to protect the great opportunity for every American to live their dreams in our great country,” said Scott.

In the end, he would finish his statement, saying, “For families, this is devastating – they are losing the stability of good, full-time jobs at the time they need it most.”

Americans will put President Biden’s agenda to the test on November 8th in the ballot box.
