Biden, Beshear Agenda Failing Kentucky Families, Cameron says

September 22, 2023

Louisville, Ky. (September 22, 2023) – Daniel Cameron released the following statement in response to new numbers showing Kentucky’s economy suffering under Andy Beshear and Joe Biden.  

“Andy Beshear and Joe Biden’s agenda means fewer people working, more people on unemployment, and less money in your pocket,” Daniel Cameron said. “There are now more than 80,000 people on unemployment and the system Andy oversees still isn’t fixed. What is Andy’s solution to increasing workforce participation? Putting more able-bodied people on Medicaid. Andy Beshear and Joe Biden have the same answer for everything: higher taxes, more spending, and more government dependency. As governor, I will eliminate our income tax and get people back to work.”

Here are the facts about Kentucky’s economy under Joe Biden and Andy Beshear:

  • Beshear and Biden’s Agenda is robbing Kentuckians of their hard-earned income. Inflation surged to 3.7 % year-over-year in August and remains more than twice the rate it was when Biden took office. Prices have gone up by 17.4 % under Biden. Inflation-adjusted household income fell last year by the most in over a decade.
  • Kentucky’s unemployment rate is higher than the national average. Kentucky’s unemployment rate rose to 4%, which is higher than the U.S. seasonally adjusted jobless rate of 3.8%.
