Senior White House economic advisor Brian Deese deflected growing questions surrounding the administration’s handling of the US economy; telling ABC News the best way to fight inflation is to vaccinate young children.
“Is inflation going to get worse? Is there anything President Biden can do in the short term?” asked ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.
“In the short term, we have to finish the job on COVID… Getting those shots out to 5 and 11 year olds is going to provide a lot of comfort to American families,” said Deese.

A new survey from ABC News shows Republicans are heading into the 2022 midterms with the highest level of support in more than four decades.
51% say they will support the GOP next November compared to 41% who plan to back the Democrats, the biggest gap since 1981.
“Republican congressional candidates currently hold their largest lead in midterm election vote preferences in ABC News/Washington Post polls dating back 40 years, underscoring profound challenges for Democrats hoping to retain their slim majorities in Congress next year,” writes ABC News.
“While a year is a lifetime in politics, the Democratic Party’s difficulties are deep; they include soaring economic discontent, a president who’s fallen 12 percentage points underwater in job approval and a broad sense that the party is out of touch with the concerns of most Americans — 62% say so,” adds the outlet.
“Among the key factors is the economy. With inflation soaring, 70% say the economy is in bad shape, up from 58% last spring. While just half blame Biden directly for inflation — its worst in 31 years — his approval for handling the economy overall is down to 39%, off 6 points just since early September and 13 points from last spring,” concludes the survey.

BIDEN on ???: ‘Fast-Food Workers’ Forced to Sign ‘Non-Compete Agreements’ But They Don’t ‘Have Secrets’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign over the weekend; strangely asserting that fast-food workers are forced to sign “non-compete agreements” so they can’t earn “five more cents.”
“You had thousands of employees making an hourly wage having to sign non-compete agreements. So if you work at Burger King, you can’t go across town to McDonald’s to try and get five more cents. All designed to do nothing, just keep wages down, you could not go!” said Biden.
“It’s not like you have a secret, these are people making an hourly wage. Just doing their job. They were told they can’t even bargain!” he added.
