With the economy slowing as inflation and interest rates soar, nearly 90 million adults are struggling financially to provide for their families in Joe Biden’s America, according to new U.S. Census data.

The Census Bureau’s latest Household Pulse Survey showed that 89.1 million people reported it was somewhat or very difficult to pay for usual home expenses between April 26 and May 8 of this year.

That statistic increased to 38.5% of adults this year, compared to 34.4% one year ago and 26.7% during the same period in 2021.
