On Monday, March 28th, 2022, the White House released the FY2023 budget proposal along with an 11-page fact sheet.
The budget proposal is a 158-page pdf file that covers $6 Trillion in spending.
The opening of the budget discusses the President’s “achievements” in 2021. Which I covered in the 11-page fact sheet article on America’s Tribune which you can check out below.
A summary of the departments and the proposed funding to those departments.

The summary begins my stating that the administration created over 6.5 million new jobs in 2021 and the economy grew by 5.7% and unemployment went from 6.4% to 3.8%
But what they won't tell you is the number of those jobs that were simply people returning to work after mask mandates and covid restrictions. How many people were forced to work from home or lost their jobs as a result.
You can already see above that the unemployment rates were already in a downward trend. Pre-COVID, the unemployment rate was already at 3.6%. In 2021 it jumped substantially to 6.7%. The following year in 2021 it went back down to 3.9% as a result of people returning to work post mandates. You can't claim that you created jobs because you lifted mandates and sent people back to work.
They also state that the economy grew 5.7% and the deficit fell by $300 billion.
