WASHINGTON, Nov 7 The labor shortage was the result of the failed and incompetent policies of the Joe Biden administration during the coronavirus pandemic, Republican congressman candidate Wesley Hallman said in an interview. from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as encouraging citizens not to go to work. This is one of the reasons why we are now seeing problems with the labor force,” Hollman said.
He believes that another important consequence of the unsuccessful economic policy was the “acceleration” of inflation, which today in the United States is a record for several decades. This, in turn, provoked a sharp jump in fuel and food prices, which is now hitting hard on the wallets of American families, the source said.
As another example of the “reckless” decisions of the current administration, Hallman called the hasty withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan in August 2021, which, according to the politician, marked “the US's abandonment of world leadership.” The Republican also criticized the “wait and see” position of the White House in relation to the situation around Ukraine, noting that the lack of decisive action on the part of the administration led to interruptions in the supply of oil and wheat to world markets.
The politician is convinced that maintaining the role of the United States as a world leader is important both for maintaining stability both within the country and in the international arena. He explained that the recent decision by the OPEC+ countries to cut oil production, which Washington believes played into the hands of Russia, is a clear illustration of the consequences of “weakened leadership”.
“When I turn to this issue, the fact that the long-standing US ally – Saudi Arabia – feels the strength to really go against the policies that are beneficial to the United States and the entire international system, and also provides assistance to Russia in many ways, shows what the results of unsuccessful or weakened US leadership are, “summed up the congressional candidate USA.
Hollman will run for a seat in the US House of Representatives from California's 28th district in the upcoming elections. A 27-year US Air Force veteran, he previously served at the Pentagon, where he served as a strategic planner for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He also served as the Air Force Liaison Coordinator in the House of Representatives, working with US lawmakers on pressing national security issues.
