The purpose of the June pivot appears threefold:
1. To convince skeptical voters that, despite their current misgivings, the economy is actually doing quite well.
2. To calm fears about inflation and reassure both everyday Americans and major economic players that Biden has a plan to address it.
3. To thwart GOP efforts to try to hang inflation like an albatross around Democrats ahead of the midterms — and maybe even go on offense by accusing the GOP of pushing policies that will make the economy worse.
