CHICAGO, IL – Upon First Lady Jill Biden’s visit to Chicago to tout the president’s disastrous economic record, Americans for Prosperity-Illinois State Director Jason Heffley released the following statement:

“While Jill Biden brags about the president’s disastrous Bidenomics record in Chicago, Illinoisans are facing record-breaking inflation that’s doubled since Biden took office.

“With the administration spending more and Illinoisans earning less, the past two years of this administration have been detrimental for Illinois families.

“Today, AFP-IL is out letting Illinoisans know that there is a better way than the failures Bidenomics and the Biden economy. Let’s provide workers with more freedom and flexibility through reform – not more of the same failed policies of the Biden administration.”


The Biden administration’s reckless spending and regulatory agenda has Americans paying more but getting less. AFP’s nationwide ‘Bidenomics is Broken’ campaign gives a voice to the countless people who know Bidenomics is failing their communities. Instead of more Biden big government, we will connect Americans with real solutions that unleash prosperity, encourage innovation, and empower individuals to achieve their potential.
