President Joe BidenMajority of likely midterm voters don’t buy Biden’s recession denialArt MooreWND News CenterPresident Biden has gone to great lengths to deflect blame for the economic downturn, including redefining the term “recession.”Nevertheless, a majority of likely voters place the blame squarely on the Democrats, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Wednesday.The respondents were asked if they agreed with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s statement late last month: “Democrats inherited an economy that was primed for an historic comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.”Overall, 59% of the 1,000 likely voters surveyed between July 28-31 said they agreed with McConnell’s statement while 35% disagreed.Rasmussen noted that, as expected, 85% of Republicans at least somewhat agree, along with 57% of unaffiliated voters.But 38% of Democratic voters also agree that their party ran the economy “straight into the ground.”Biden and his administration have insisted that the country is not in a “recession,” despite the two consecutive quarters of negative growth, which is the commonly accepted definition.But the poll found 62% believe the economy is in a recession, and 47% of Democrats say the same.And, looking ahead to the 2022 midterm elections in November, 91% overall see the economy and inflation as crucial issues.Rasmussen pointed out that likely voters with incomes of more than $200,000 annually – who “often side with Democrats on cultural issues” – agree the economy will be central this fall.Opinion: Dept. of Ecology report confirms WPC’s cost projections for the new low-carbon fuel lawTodd Myers of the Washington Policy Center shares the information that confirms WPC was right that the new law does indeed raise gas prices.Most voters think Dems pounded economy ‘straight into the ground’President Biden has gone to great lengths to deflect blame for the economic downturn, including redefining the term “recession.”Area residents can meet firefighters and emergency personnel at open houses this SummerClark County Fire District 3 invites the community to celebrate summer with free food and fun at a fire station near you in August and September.Superintendent Reykdal releases plan for work experience in school to contribute to graduationStudents will be allowed to earn up to four elective credits through work experience, and no more than two of those credits may be earned in a yearConstruction on Ninebark, Camas-Washougal’s newest residential waterfront community, is underwayConstruction on Killian Pacific’s newest development, Ninebark, a 246-unit sustainably designed apartment home community nestled between Camas and Washougal, Wash., in Clark County is underway with Sunrise Management overseeing the lease-up and all management activities.Clark County Fair: Here’s the Aug. 5 scheduleClark County Today will list highlights of the next day’s schedule of the Clark County Fair throughout the fair’s 10-day runC-TRAN offers free rides to the Clark County FairThe return of the Clark County Fair means the return of free shuttle service to the fair, courtesy of C-TRAN, which will have round-trip service from six spots throughout Clark County
