Well, it looks like Joe Biden has done absolutely nothing to tame inflation, but then again are we surprised? There’s not much the Divider In Chief has done for the American people since he took office, and that’s because Joe Biden doesn’t really know how to get anything done at all – 48 years in office with not much to show for it tells you everything you need to know.
Sure, inflation cooled slightly in October but is still near-record highs. According to a Fox Business report, the Labor Department said Thursday morning that the consumer price index, a broad measure of the price for everyday goods including gasoline, groceries, and rents, rose 0.4% in October from the previous month. Prices climbed 7.7% on an annual basis.
Biden is a “bandaid-President”. He talks a good game, but instead of actually solving the root of the problem most Americans face, he simply throws a bandage on the wound and hopes it just goes away. Skyrocketing gas prices at the pump are a clear example of this. First, he killed our existing rock-bottom price agreements with Russia which sent gas prices sky-high. Then he tapped our strategic petroleum reserves to quickly bring down prices at the pump at the risk of depleting our wartime reserves instead of simply drilling for more oil on U.S. land. Gas prices have started to spike again, and now we’re faced with not only surging prices at the pump again but critically low reserves – all because Joe would rather push through the establishment’s Green New Deal rather than help Americans. I digress.
There’s no doubt that scorching-hot inflation has created severe financial pressures for most U.S. households, which are forced to pay more for everyday necessities like food and rent. The burden, however, is disproportionately borne by low-income Americans, whose already-stretched paychecks are heavily impacted by price fluctuations. But Biden doesn’t care about that because he wouldn’t even know what the price of gas is seeing that he doesn’t pay for it, and hasn’t had to spend a single penny on groceries since moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
