Staggering 8.3% Inflation Can Only Be Blamed On Biden’s Broken Agenda
Washington, D.C.: “American families have lost nearly 10% of their income to inflation since last year, and all President Biden can do is lean into the podium microphone and oddly whisper that it’s all someone else’s fault,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “He continues to issue blame to anyone and everyone else, including Vladimir Putin, COVID, corporations, and what he calls ‘ultra MAGA’ Republicans.
“The simple truth is that Republicans aren’t the majority in Congress, Democrats are. And Congressional Democrats, along with the White House, are printing money like mad to send billions to Ukraine while they purposefully stifle the American economy and energy market. Biden continues to claim he ‘understands’ Americans’ frustrations, but I’ll bet there’s no one more oblivious to the hardships Americans face than Joe Biden.
“How long are Democrats going to go along with this farce? Our president may bumble around the stage and blindly follow a teleprompter, but there are even liberals in Congress who know better than to continue allowing these extreme economic policies to ratchet up the bills of working Americans every month. It’s time for a political revolt in Congress! Biden’s executive branch continues to neuter our Article 1 constitutional legislature, and Democrats and Republicans alike shouldn’t take it anymore.”
