Buttigieg Credits Biden’s Successful Economic Recovery Programs for Supply Chain Crisis

In an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, Buttigieg attributes the breakdown in the US supply chain due to unprecedented demand. He credits Biden for engineering the economic recovery of the US that led to demand outstripping supply. 

“Certainly a lot of the challenges that we’ve been experiencing this year will continue into next year. Look, part of what is happening isn’t just the supply side, it’s the demand side.

Demand is off the charts. Retail sales are through the roof. And if you think about those images of ships, for example, waiting at anchor on the West Coast – every one of those ships is full of record amounts of goods that Americans are buying because demand is up because income is up because the president has successfully guided this economy out of the teeth of a terrifying recession,” he said. 

Supply Chains Can’t Keep Up

Buttigieg added that supply chains can’t cope with demand. “Our supply chains can’t keep up. And of course, our supply chains, that’s a complicated system that is mostly in private hands, and rightly so.

Our role is to be an honest broker, bring together all of the different players there, secure commitments, and get solutions that are going to make it easier.”

In addition, Buttigieg said the supply chain crisis demonstrated a need for House Democrats to pass the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill.

This bill allocates $17 billion to US ports and terminals. However, the bill remains in limbo due to infighting within the Democratic over the budget. 

Infrastructure Bill Can Help Improve The Ports

Buttigieg said that the infrastructure bill can augment the country’s existing ports. “This is one more example of why we need to pass the infrastructure bill. There is $17 billion in the president’s infrastructure plan for ports alone.

And we need to deal with the long-term issues that have made us vulnerable to these kinds of bottlenecks when there are demand fluctuations, shocks, and disruptions like the ones that have been caused by the pandemic,” he said. 

The Transportation Secretary also stressed the need to pass the infrastructure bill in order to get their bigger bill passed. “The reality is that America needs both of those pieces of legislation.

If you care about inflation, you ought to care about not just the supply chain issues, not just the infrastructure things I work on, but also the provisions in Build Back Better like paid family leave, like making it easier to afford child care, like community college, that is going to give us a stronger labor force and help us work on that major constraint on economic growth,” he said. 

Host Jake Tapper asked Buttigieg if it’s a good idea for Americans to get their Christmas shopping finished early this year.

However, the former South Bend, Indiana mayor parried the question. “Obviously, every family makes its own preparations for Christmas or the other holidays,” Buttigieg replied.

    Yea he’s right about success on destroying America and the American way of life he and all his regime needs to be impeached for the stupid ass motives for the way America is spiraling into the cesspool of hell .

  • Dan says:

    Got to admit, these democrat puppets all get the daily narrative and run with it. Let me get this straight so I understand. All of the current administation failures including the supply chain crisis is a result of Joe Biden’s success? It’s clear then, Joe Biden is a success at failing. His support at 38% and sinking.

  • Janice4024 says:

    Sounds like if you don’t eat you well get the shot. Term limits. GOD help us all, from the clutches of tyranny.

  • Chock BaBa says:

    All these communists brag about destroying our country.They are proud of there evil works.

  • Chas says:

    Yes, they all think we the tax payers are stupid as they are! And this current administration wants us all to believe in the tooth fairy as well! A 3.5 trillion dollar bill cost the middle class zero and Afghanistan withdrawal was a complete success. Keep on pumping out those lies to the American people, something in bound to stick on the shit filled wall!

  • Chas says:

    Stupid is as Stupid does….!

  • Charles says:

    Buttplug needs to get his head out of A$$ and get some common sense-THIS job is way over his head-he could not even fill in the potholes in his small town–THAT’s WHY They CALLED him pot hole PETE when he was mayor—WHAT A POS????????

    What planet is he from?

  • Mark Hiatt says:

    They are all treasonous

  • Huapakechi says:

    We know that the biden administration is in washington due to election fraud. Those who refuse to admit the obvious and stand in the way of removing these communists deserve to be swept aside along with ’em.
    When President Trump returns to the White House he must rectify his previous mistake of leaving the previous administrations’ supporters in the power structure. Then he should mandate a RICO investigation of both political parties. Let the heads fall where they may.

  • Bruce says:

    Buttigig 😳 is somewhat right, Biden is the salesman of the year in the Weapons, Survival and Trump Merchandise sectors.

  • BBA says:

    Ahh yes, the ol’ gay war veteran Pete that could not get enough Americans to buy into his bullsh!t to win the Democrat nominee for POTUS. Sure Pete, we believe everything you say d-bag lmao.

  • GomeznSA says:

    Yeah petey the ‘success’ is why my gas is now up over a buck a gallon and one of my normal grocery items went fro a buck to $1.26 (that’s a TWENTY SIX percent increase in case you are using ‘common core’ math). And that was the last time I shopped, I’m dreading going grocery shopping later today ;-(

  • David says:

    I’m really surprised at hoe these puppets can say the things they say without laughing! All of the container shipsnare sitting off of the coast because the government wants bare shelves. I know people that work there. There are no shortages of truck drivers. Thsy don’t want them emptied. And the gas hike=success, natural gas hike (180%) inflation=success, cheating the election=success! He was a lot funnier when he was talking about killing babies post birth with heart attack causing medications. That sounds completely pain free. I volunteer him to be first in the clinical trials.

  • Otto says:

    Another prime example of what happens when unqualifiedi jack asses that need a trophy for just showing up attempt to run things.

  • bubbajoe says:

    Guess we know Ol Petey isn’t using his nuggets to do his “husband”. We now know where his head is at.

  • Anonymous says:

    I think pete should just spend more time with his butt buddies, he’s good at that

  • Anonymous says:

    Just like the left to try and make the American people believe this crisis is a GOOD thing! It has NOTHING to do with economic recovery…there isn’t enough workers to unload the ships or transportation to deliver the goods! Tell the damn truth!!!!

  • Michael Valgos says:

    This moron is from from a little town and now he thinks he can lie to our entire country She is a midget minded punk and and his small town ideas are for she and her husband I don’t think she understands how real life works Maybe Butti isw on his period maybe that is his problem No I just think he has many mental problems If he can’t figure out if he is a man or a woman This is not the type individual fit for making his own decisions much less anyone else She can take her dolls back to South Bend
