Leftist Pennsylvania Congressman Says His State Lost Many Jobs Since Biden Came to Public Office
Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has been in public office almost 50 years, serving as Delaware’s senator from 1973 until 2009, where he became Barack Obama’s vice president. In other words, he personifies the D.C. swamp.
Because of this long tenure, Biden must face the question of why voters should trust him now to fix the country’s problems when he has had almost half a century to do so?
Interestingly, Leftist Congressman Conor Lamb (D-PA) admitted this on CNN, saying that his state lost many jobs while Biden was in public office.
“I think in a part of the country like mine, there has been a 30 or 40-year period long before President Trump came along, where we lost heavy industry, we lost jobs in coal, we lost jobs in steel, a ton of manufacturing has gone overseas to Mexico and China,” he told CNN. “And so I think anybody who was serving in public office during that period is going to have a challenge to come to a place like Western Pennsylvania and say we can get this back on track. We can create new jobs. They will pay better. We will secure your retirement but deal with the history of all of that. I’m new so, you know, nobody really held me accountable for that, but Vice President Biden has been around longer.”

But Lamb made a point that he clearly did not mean to—that it is, in fact, his party that has been pushing policies of job loss in that area. The Democrats have abandoned steel workers and coal miners. In 2016, Hillary Clinton admitted this, saying that “[W]e’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” The Democrat party has been championing the Green New Deal for a few years now and doesn’t seem to be planning to stop.
The Democrat party is all cut from the same cloth, and Lamb is scared for his own race against challenger Sean Parnell. Parnell rightly called out the fact that Joe Biden’s, and by extension the Democrat party’s, policies have “decimated” Pennsylvania:

The Democrat party is comprised of variations of the same theme, and the last thing we should ever do is let a Democrat into power. And one of their own just admitted that.
