Friday’s lackluster jobs report is a direct testament to the detrimental effects of the Biden administration’s economic policies, Republicans argued after the report was released. The economy added just 266,000 jobs in April when the prediction was close to 1 million. The unemployment rate also rose slightly to 6.1 percent. 

Republicans criticized the "worst miss" jobs report and knocked the Biden administration’s tax increases and unemployment incentives. 

Democrats and President Biden, on the other hand, spun the lackluster report as a need to pass the $2 trillion American Jobs Plan.
