Republican-Led States Continue To Lead In Economic Recovery Through March


A recent analysis of March state by-state unemployment data, released by the Department of Labor found that states with Republican governors and legislatures are more likely to lead their states to economic recovery.
The Republican National Committee (RNC), an analysis team from the Republican National Committee analysed March’s Labor Department state unemployment data and employment data. It was revealed that Republican-led States continue outperform Democrat States month after month in job recover and lowest levels of unemployment during the pandemic.

According to the RNC research team, new data has confirmed that Republican-led States saw more jobs in March and had less unemployment. “Recovery is underway, and red states have lower unemployment.

Republican governors and legislatures govern the top four states that have experienced the most job growth. Nine of the top ten most jobs-recovered states are also led by Republican governors. All ten states have Republican-controlled legislatures, as states across the country continue to get back to work after the coronavirus pandemic.

Further analysis revealed that 14 out of the top 20 US states having Republican governors did a better job in March than any state with Democrat Governors. And 16 of the top 20 recovering states have Republican-controlled legislatures; Republicans entirely control the top four states.

Republicans are also the leaders of eleven top thirteen states (including Utah, Idaho, Montana, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Arizona, South Dakota), They now have more people than ever before the coronavirus epidemic and all restrictions are in place.

Utah has regained 154.8% its jobs since the pandemic started. Idaho 148.4%; Montana 125.4%; Texas 116.7%; Florida 112.2%; Georgia 112.1%; Tennessee 1122%; Arizona 109.8%. Arkansas 109.6%. South Dakota 105.6%. Indiana 100.9%.

The analysis revealed that at least two-thirds of the jobs lost during the pandemic have been recovered by every Republican-led state. The average recovery rate of Republican-led states after the pandemic was 98 percent, compared to 86 percent for Democrat led ones.

Ronna McDaniel (RNC chairwoman) stated that the analysis revealed “the contrast between leadership.” “Month after month, the data show that Republican-led states have the lowest unemployment and the highest job recovery.

McDaniel stated that Joe Biden’s Democrats are responsible for 40-year-high inflation and record gasoline prices, as well as economic hardship. But, Republican-led states help create jobs, keep schools open, and help small businesses succeed.

RNC analysis shows that four of the five top states with the lowest unemployment rates are entirely Republican-led. The Republican-led legislatures are leading the five top states with the lowest unemployment rates as states recover from the coronavirus epidemic.

These four Republican-governed States have the lowest March unemployment rates: Nebraska (2%) Utah (2%) Indiana (2%) and Montana (22.3%)

Twenty-five of the top 25 states with the lowest unemployment rates have Republican governors. And out of those top 25 states with the lowest unemployment rates, 21 have Republican-controlled legislatures. Twelve of the fifteen states with the lowest unemployment rates are actually fully Republican-led. Seven of the ten highest unemployment rates in the United States are Democrat-led.

Nevada (5%) & New Mexico (5.3%) are top two states in which Democrats have the highest unemployment rates.

A study revealed that the unemployment rate in Democratic-led states was nearly one percentage point lower then those in Republican-led states. The average unemployment rate in the 28 states that have Republican governors is 3.2 percent. On the other hand, Democrat-led States have an average rate of 4.1%. Both rates are lower than they were in previous months.

Additionally, according to the RNC analysis, two-thirds of the states with lower unemployment rates than when the pandemic began are helmed by Republican governors, and 89 percent have Republican-controlled legislatures. It also outlined that 17 states hit new record low unemployment rates, noting that 13 have Republican governors, and 16 have Republican-controlled legislatures — which is up from the previous month.

This analysis is based upon March’s state-by-state unemployment data from Department of Labor. Despite this, the country still faces constant problems since Joe Biden was elected President.

This country has seen higher gas prices, the highest inflation rate since December 1981, and bad job reports. There are also ongoing supply chain crises. According to the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School budget model inflation would have cost families $3500 more in 2021. They would need to spend this much to maintain their normal annual expenses, based on the 2020 and 2019 spending patterns.

On Tuesday, the Department of Labor published data showing that the consumer price index increased 8.5% in March over a year ago. This is the biggest year-over-year increase since December 1981. This index also shows an 8.8 percent increase of food prices compared with last year. This means that food items in everyday life increased. The average kitchen table price rose 16.8% over last year.

American families weren’t just facing food costs problems. Americans also saw an increase in energy costs as inflation increased. The average energy price increased by 32 percent in a year, and grew 11.4 percent between February 2012 and March 2013. The oil prices have increased by 70.1 percent in the past year, which is 22.3 percent more than February. The price of motor fuel has increased by 48.2 per cent in the last 12 months, 19.8 percent more than February.

Since taking office in Washington, the Democrats have targeted American energy. Biden stopped oil and natural gas leasing and stopped federal support for oil projects abroad. He also cancelled the Keystone XL Pipeline. And he suspended oil drilling leases at Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

Last year, Biden and the Democrats tried to pass partisan bills that were part of President Obama’s legislative agenda through Congress. Even though the country was still recovering after the pandemic, this was done. Democrats approved the bipartisan, $1.2 trillion-sized, 2,702-page infrastructure bill. Biden also signed in the House the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act.

Despite the fact that only one Democrat voted in favor of the BBB bill bill, Democrats knew from the beginning how harmful it would be for American energy. Six of the most vulnerable members acknowledged the damage BBB had caused and sent a letter to Democratic leadership, expressing concern over the effects it would have on American oil, natural gas, and refining industries.

They claimed that the BBB could lead to thousands of job losses, stifle recovery and increase energy prices for all Americans. It also strengthens our enemies and slows down the transition to low-carbon.
