(Fox News) Republicans are ripping a list touting President Biden’s “accomplishments” that the White House said could be used as talking points “for when chatting with your Uncle at Thanksgiving.”
“Using White House talking points to try and gaslight your own family as to the realities of this administration seems like a miserable way to spend Thanksgiving,” Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., told Fox News Digital.
Earlier Wednesday, White House deputy communications director Jennifer Molina tweeted President Biden’slist of accomplishments, writing, “Bring the receipts to the Thanksgiving dinner!”

The list of Biden’s accomplishments included, “10 million jobs created” and “no taxes on people making above $400,000 – he kept his promise.”
“Gas prices are down by $1.35/gallon since June and inflation is moderating,” the list said.
“Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress are extreme,” it added. “Proposing a national ban on abortion, planning to put Medicare and Social Security on the chopping block, [and] trying to raise costs on Americans by repealing the Inflation Reduction Act.”
The Republican National Committee highlighted the gas prices claim on Twitter.
Yes, and be sure to bring the receipt from the gas station, where you’re paying ~$1.21/gallon more than the day Joe Biden took office. Go figure https://t.co/PYldXoNLkg

Biden’s oft-repeated claims of creating 10 million jobs through the American Rescue Plan have been repeatedly fact-checked as being exaggerated by as much as 8 million, leaving out the unique economic conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic. And while Biden has not instituted a tax hike on people making below $400,000, many economists blame his American Rescue Plan for sparking the current inflation crisis, which is often referred to as a hidden tax on all Americans. And while gas prices are down since June to $3.58, they’re still up about $1.20 since Biden first took office.
