Before getting into an op-ed published at The Hill about rural America, I'd like to start with a broad reminder of the Left's idea of what's good for "rural America."
John Kerry explains:
Climate grifter extraordinaire, John Kerry: The farming industry must be destroyed in order to achieve Net Zero.— Wide Awake Media (@wideawake_media) September 22, 2023
"Agriculture contributes about 33% of all the emissions of the world. And we can't get to Net Zero—we don't get this job done—unless agriculture is front and centre… pic.twitter.com/wyGGOhYny0
"We have to starve humanity in order to save humanity."
I started out with Kerry's comments to point out that, to leftists, misery is a net positive as long as the right people are miserable and they don't lose anything and continue to profit in the process.
That brings us to this take in The Hill, and if it were remotely true it wouldn't even need to be said:
(Pictured: Two people who think "Bidenomics" sucks)
The Hill's foray into comedy is off to a wonderful start. Watch out, Babylon Bee!
Why? Because rural folks love inflation?— Slow (@SlowLaneLodge) September 23, 2023
Go into rural America and try to find anybody who thinks "Bidenomics" is a "godsend." Good luck.
Put on a flame retardant suit so you don't get burned by the high temperature of this scorching propaganda:
The combination of executive and congressional action since Biden took office — from the American Rescue Plan, to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, to the CHIPS Act, Inflation Reduction Act and key executive action promoting competition and protecting workers — presents greater potential for revitalizing rural communities than anything since the New Deal. These were huge steps in the right direction, and yet rural people are still struggling. The updated Rural Policy Action Report offers a continued roadmap for how to help rural communities, protect the environment and core freedoms, and renew shared prosperity across geographic divides.
I’ll leave it to others to debate the political wisdom of the label “Bidenomics.” But the wisdom of the policies themselves should be clear.
According to polls, hardly anybody agrees that "Bidenomics" has been anything but a disaster for the economy.
I should note that the person who wrote that laughable op-ed is the head of a left-wing group called the Rural Democracy Initiative, which "supports rural people working to transform their lives and communities in service of shared prosperity."
As usual, "shared prosperity" = "commie gobbledygook" (as the late great Norm Macdonald once put it).
No. No it's not.— Devil's Advocate (@SuppressionAnti) September 23, 2023
This is the worst propaganda.
It's kind of amazing that the Left hasn't given up on the "Bidenomics" propaganda and moved on to pushing some other economic plan destined for failure, like "Newsom-omics" or something.
I dunno man, have you asked rural America what they think about grocery or diesel prices? Or what they think about Biden’s Climate Czar saying that US agriculture operations are the biggest reason for climate change and need to be looked at? https://t.co/laGAEL36bl— Vanessa (@Nessakins_) September 23, 2023

Longer lines at Food Banks
Increased costs of services / repairs
That stuff is only a "godsend" if you're somebody like John Kerry and would love to destroy middle America.
