Republican Governors Unite to Resist Biden’s War on Work

AMAC Exclusive


With missiles flying in the Middle East, illegal immigrants streaming across our southern border, inflation rising, and gas prices skyrocketing, the bad news for Joe Biden just keeps on coming. But perhaps no news did more to send chills down the spine of Biden administration officials than the announcement that only 266,000 jobs were created last month, just a quarter of the one million that was expected.

Like the other crises threatening to overwhelm Biden’s presidency, it’s a crisis of his own creation—attributable in significant part to socialist policies such as unemployment bonuses that are paying people not to work.

While the media is eager to distract from the Biden disasters by advancing the narrative of an imaginary world in which Republicans are careening off the cliff and on the verge of inter-party civil war, in fact, the party has rarely been more unified.

As of this week, 22 out of 27 Republican governors have announced that they are rejecting the Biden unemployment bonus policy, as economists and businesses sound the alarm about the dire effects of handing out $300 weekly checks giving people extra money to stay home.

The governors include many of the party’s leading faces, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.

At the state level, the party’s leading figures have quickly aligned their strategies to resist the War on Work being waged by the Biden administration. With Democrats in control of the House, the Senate, and the White House, this unity and coordination at the state level may be Republicans’ most effective means of stopping the federal power grab Washington Democrats are attempting.

While politicians in D.C. ignore the warning signs and take the easy, short-term political “win” of handing out even more borrowed or freshly printed money, the task has fallen to Republican governors to recognize the economic catastrophe these policies are creating around them. 

South Carolina Governor McMaster described the problem of the unemployment bonuses clearly. “What was intended to be a short-term financial assistance for the vulnerable and displaced during the height of the pandemic has turned into a dangerous federal entitlement,” he said. He suggested that the Biden policy is “incentivizing and paying workers to stay at home rather than encouraging them to return to the workplace.”

A quick drive by any street with a restaurant or store confirms this fact. Help wanted signs blanket America’s business landscape, with hiring bonuses and hourly pay at more than twice the minimum wage for most entry-level jobs. Businesses have no choice; they are competing with the government’s stay-at-home bonuses.    

Unfortunately, the War on Work is not just limited to unemployment bonuses. With the help of Democrats in Congress, Biden’s policies are saddling states with increasingly bloated welfare rolls. For instance, they have banned states from removing able-bodied, working-age adults from welfare programs even if those individuals are no longer eligible—adding further to the disincentive for unemployed workers to get back on the job. In effect, the Biden administration is helping to create a new permanent class of long-term government dependents, unlike anything that existed prior to the pandemic.

The far-left has not let a good crisis go to waste—they’ve used it to transform the face of America’s welfare state.

For the same reason, D.C. Democrats are attacking new election integrity measures being adopted in Republican states. Biden, Bernie, and the rest of the Democrat swamp hopes that with a few more elections like 2020—where voting laws were manipulated, abused, and violated across the nation— Democrats may succeed in turning their millions of new welfare state dependents into Democrat voters.

Let’s hope Republican Governors stay unified and stand in their way.

The Democrat mantra… Vote democrat & continue getting gov’t paid FREEBIES, for life…
If Y’all live in a ” blue state ” that state will willingly keep you on WELFARE forevermore whilst they themselves continue to suck up all the Federal subsidies they can find…I live in such a state, sadly.
My state of residence is Vermont & sadly enough it has been on a ” socialistic bent ” for close to 50 years now, think Bernie Sanders: Need I say anymore?
I tip my hat to the red state governors that are shutting the unemployment bonus spigot OFF & telling people to get back to work!
Inflation is here folks, look at the lumber prices, up 300%… Look at those gasoline prices now as we should profoundly thank Uncle Joe for shutting down the Keystone pipeline on day ( 1 )…
Need a job? Better be quick, there are 1000’s upon 1000’s of illegal immigrants that want those jobs right now & Uncle Joe is prepared to get them social security cards so as to make them eligible for those Federal subsidies, i.e. stimulus payments, welfare, etc. & get their votes at election time…

Trump is backing our line of defense with supporting Republican governors to the tune of 9x’s matching-$20=$180. PTL for the real President Trump. He’s willing to sacrifice himself for saving America from the wicked tyranny of the left. It has been a long time since we had a President who truly loved the people of America and what has made us great-Our Judeo-Christian way of life!!!

Our Socialist government is using money created by those who are working to provide incentives for those who are willing to let someone else take care of them. They are creating a situation where more American citizens are becoming more dependent on government. As has been proven over and over again in failed Socialist and Communist nations, this sort of government control cannot last forever and will soon enough turn out to be devastating to both those who are producing the money that is being redistributed and those who are being taken care of by that money. This is a lose-lose situation for the average American citizen while elitist politicians and other government workers become more wealthy and more powerful.

As usual the states must lead the charge to what the Republican Party should be going forward!
I may even vote for them next year.

I have been saying this for years . . . get rid of both parties, Rep. and Dem. They both stink. Only the Rep. party stinks a LOT LESS. Trouble is, every election, that is our ONLY choice

Here is an idea, take the money out of the Presidential Campaigns. Give the final 2 candidates a set, equal amount of taxpayer money, no other contributions allowed. Each get equal TV time, candidates allowed to only express their views and plans, no disparaging remarks against one another. Only paper ballots, with equal representation in counting votes, mail-in ballots for only seniors and handicapped who request them. Voter ID required, and only one vote for each qualified voter.

Our D governor wants to pay a hefty bonus to people getting jobs. So he figures he’s got you whether you choose to stay out of work and collect enhanced government handouts or to do the right thing and get back to work. He’s buttering both sides of the bread.

Ludicrous, totally insane, what is this country turning into???

Both my native state (Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson) and adopted state ( Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb) have ended the payment of unemployment compensation from the federal government, so our people can get back to work. Companies are begging for workers. I hope all Republican, and even some Democratic states, will follow suit.
On a different issue, I fervently hope that the US will not turn its back on Israel and risk God’s judgment, as all the superpowers in the past who did turn against Israel have experienced.

Israel is, and has been for many years, our best ally in the middle east. The fact that the Biden administration and Democrats support Palestine and Iran (the most terrorist government in the world) speaks volumes about where they stand against America!

It is obvious they are trying their best to make our country a socialist one. They are trying to make citizens dependent on the federal dollar, destroying any pretense of election integrity, and politicizing the Supreme Court.
