The Biden Administration Says Inflation is Decelerating While Americans Go Hungry Due to the Sky-Rocketing Cost of Living

inflation

WASHINGTON, DC, Oct 27 — Don’t believe your eyes; the Biden administration tells us that inflation and sky-rocketing prices for consumer goods are all a mirage, not real.  In fact, White House press secretary Jen Psaki tells us that inflation rates have decelerated by 50%.  Yeah, right.

According to the government’s own statistics, when Mr. Biden became president in January 2021, the inflation rate stood at 1.4%, and as of the end of September 2021, it was at 5.39%.  That’s an increase of a whopping 285.714% — in just the first eight months of the Biden presidency.

Meanwhile, Ms. Psaki’s “false and callous” dismissal of the impact inflation is having on our citizens shows the lack of concern that this administration has for struggling citizens.  A poll published a few days ago shows that a third of them are resorting to skipping meals in order to cope. 

The poll was conducted by Zogby Analytics, which noted that “Food insecurity is becoming increasingly too familiar these days.  As the gap between the “haves” and “have nots” widens, more and more Americans are finding it harder to meet ends daily.  Economists and advocacy groups are sounding the alarm bells as food insecurity is on the rise in the U.S.  To compound matters, rising food prices are not helping the situation.  Families are missing meals because their paychecks do not go as far as they once did a few years ago.  The middle class is being hollowed out by inflation.  We asked voters if they felt the Biden Administration’s failure to control inflation had caused them or family members to miss meals because of the increased cost of food prices, and the results were shocking.”

The Zogby survey found “three in ten likely voters said they had or family members missed meals due to food price inflation.”

You don’t have to be an economist to know why these times are hard, and living isn’t easy.  It’s all about the destructively massive spending plans of the Biden administration and his socialist-centric House and Senate.   Charles Lipson, political science professor emeritus at the University of Chicago, puts it this way: “Fundamentally, inflation is a monetary problem.  It’s too much money chasing too few goods.  And the idea that you would pump trillions more into this economy at a time when it’s clearly overheating is just lunacy.”

Sen. Rand Paul, [R-KY] says it’s not going to get better anytime soon.  He told Newsmax last week that things are going to get “worse than anybody’s predicting … all baked in from this year’s borrowing so as they pass their big government socialist program, we will get more inflation.”  And he’s not the only one to predict that.

In July, polling by researchers at Morning Consult showed 38% of all voters and 38% of independent voters said they believed that as far as the economy under President Biden is concerned, things will get worse next year; as of last week, those numbers increased to 47% and 49% respectively.  Even the number of Democrats who are concerned about America’s near-term financial future grew from17% to 23%. 

“Sixty-two percent of voters blame the Biden administration’s policies for rising inflation, an increase of 3 percentage points from late July when Morning Consult and Politico last polled on the question. Slight increases in the shares of Republicans (85 percent) and independents (61 percent) who hold the administration responsible fueled the uptick.”

If the dems cared as much for the “less privileged” as they claim they do, they’d make an effort to halt this meteoric rise in inflation. But obviously they don’t care. Many middle and lower income families driving to work and are now deciding what they will have to sacrifice in order to keep their jobs.

Last weekend, I moved to a more rural location 2 hours from the last residence. With gasoline costing almost twice what it did 2 years ago, I left items behind that didn’t fit in the moving van. I made a few trips with my small pickup truck, but it just wasn’t worth it, so the rest was donated.

A loaf of rye bread cost $2.29 2 years ago; it’s now $4.29. A little peperomia (that’s a plant) in a 1 1/2″ pot now costs $4.49, when it was less than $3.00 before Biden. Our power company has already notified customers of their multiple price increases over the next couple of years.

The real inflation rate will end up being much, much higher than the core rate often quoted, the one with food and energy omitted from the calculations. Maybe by now all Americans are seeing what this administration is all about—impoverishing a larger percentage of us while getting their socialist agenda in motion, and making more of us dependent on the federal government. That’s not what I envision as a free society with a healthy economy.

I want to have hope and having read many of these comments, I’m very pleased to see people are beginning to understand; especially Gary.To all my fellow Patriots, now is not the time to mince words, let’s call this exactly what it is i.e. this is the leftists/socialists/progressive/ Democrats/Deepwater and shadow government hard at work to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA; the hubris of the above noted is such that they don’t even attempt to hide it, they say it out loud but they convince only the idiots. One easily recognized example of marching towards Socialism is the patients rights and affordable care act along with Medicare for all. NEWS FLASH: MEDICARE IS BANKRUPT i.e. Medicare’s UNFUNDED LIABILITIES dwarfs our national debt; don’t take my word for it, Google “Medicare unfunded liabilities”. All though this attempt to fundamentally change America has been in the works for more than 70 years but they have up their game exponentially and picking up steam via selling hate i.e. HATE TRUMP!!!The mainstream media is complicit in selling hate and far to many of our fellow American’s sit in front of their television watching “news” nodding like bobble-heads; if we fail to get our friends, families, neighbors to see what is actually happening and they on a FastTrack to forfeiting LIBERTY… this really is what’s coming if we fail to stop it. I do have faith that many more will begin to understand the gravity of this situation if We The People spread th word and use easily verifiable facts.

We need to quit giving the Democrat/Socialist (soon to be the Socialistic/Communistic) party we keep giving them a pass on everything by saying they are stupid, they are dumb, they’re making to many mistakes. In fact it is a well laid out devious and sinister agenda and if you don’t believe it wait until after the 2022 elections. If we constitutionalist (this includes any members of all parties that truly believe that all citizens matter) don’t take back the House and Senate the Democrat/ Socialists will go full throttle.

The Biden administration doesn’t seem to know how to fix our nation’s problems. Simple solution: why not go back to the way things were running when President Trump was in office! Things were pretty much under control and running well. Look where we are now! It started with the Biden-Obama administration. can’t say Biden-Harris administration as Harris doesn’t do anything.

The Biden Administration and the Dmocrats in Congress know full-well what they are doing and they’ve been at it for a very long time. To wit, the above noted seek to reduce all of America to a dependant class; I find it odd that they think they will be in charge afterwards.

A few years ago, Marie Harf, Obama’s trumpet for the second term, had the audacity to say that we didn’t understand how good Obamacare was for the country because we didn’t understand the nuance. What hubris…but it figures—she used to work for Psaki, 2 fruits from the same tree.

New spending plan of Biden’s that will cost nothing unless you make over $400,000 is a joke. Most people earning well above that amount are business owners. To recover from Biden’s new taxes what do they do? They raise their prices so we end up being the ones hurt. How stupid does he think we are. Got to vote them out as soon as possible.

This “head of present admin” (cannot stomach calling Biden president) is acting as a despot. This puppet spews incessant stupidity about everything of which he speaks. It is difficult to understand why he can act with impunity, when everything he is doing flies in the face of citizens, and it is usually unconstitutional or teetering on the brink thereof.

It amazes me, how many of my intelligent friends and family members actually believe the smoke and mirrors. Are actually seeing the price increases, empty shelves and complaining about gas, yet believe Joe when he says things are better. And guess what, everyone one of them got the vax. I think it has infiltrated into their brains and made them stupid.

There is a video from 11 years ago which predicted a contrived pandemic, rushed vaccines that would be useable as weapons for control, and eventually, reduction of world population. Suggested control was by only eight families or groups. It was shrugged off and seemed far fetched but now I wonder if there could actually be any truth to it. I certainly hope not but this push for mandates are now worrisome to me.

Yes, it all depends on who you compare us to. In actuality, we still have a long way to go down to reach parity with the bulk of the other countries on the planet. Venezuela is considered fairly well off, if you compare it to some desolate countries in sub Sahara Africa. Remember it’s all about achieving a living standard based on lowest common denominator of all economies on the planet.
