Georgia’s voters need to remember these statements in 2022 and 2024. The Biden-supported MLB boycott of Atlanta will cost the local economy over $100 million.
The Biden administration knew by supporting the boycott it would hurt small businesses.
In case you think his administration cares, according to Biden’s advisor “that was the point.”https://t.co/b7ptEPlDR5

Biden economist acknowledges ‘cost’ to MLB’s decision to pull All-Star game from Atlanta, but says that’s the point
By Yahoo Sports, April 6, 2021
Cecilia Rouse, the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, appeared to dismiss the idea that President Biden is urging private companies to use their economic power to take political positions, namely in response to Georgia’s controversial new voting law.
In an interview that aired on Sunday’s edition of Face the Nation, CBS News’ Margaret Brennan pointed out that a day after Biden, who strongly opposes the Georgia law, said he would like to see the 2021 Major League Baseball All-Star Game move out of Atlanta, the league did just that. Rouse, though, said companies that have spoken out against the state law “have a right to vote with their feet and express their dissatisfaction.”
In terms of the fallout from MLB’s decision, Rouse acknowledged there “will undoubtedly be a cost” borne in part by workers in Atlanta, but noted the league will move the game to another city, benefiting a different group of workers. “That is exactly the message [MLB] was trying to send,” Rouse said.
