Thanks to Joe Biden, America is in a mess. The 80-year-old, near-senile Democrat has just been rubber-stamping the radical left’s agenda. And he’s left the U.S. economy in tatters. But he tries to brush it all off, refusing to take responsibility for his failures. Even recently, he claimed the state of our economy is strong.
From Daily Wire:
“Today, I’m happy to report that the state of the Union and the state of our economy is strong,” Biden crowed to reporters on Friday.
He claimed this, because according to a report from his federal government, the country added 517,000 jobs last month. While that might sound good, it ignores the fact that inflation is making it impossible for Americans to make ends meet.
When asked about inflation, Biden refused to take responsibility. He claimed it was around before he got into office. Um… except, he’s done nothing to fix it–in fact, his reckless spending and anti-American energy policies have made it much worse. How much worse?
From Daily Wire:
But after Biden killed the Keystone XL pipeline, froze student debt collection, rejoined the Paris climate accords, made a pathway for illegals to gain citizenship, and halted construction on the border wall — all actions he took on Day 1 — inflation started to climb.
In his first six months in office, inflation went from 1.4% to 5.4%. It was worse in 2022, rising to 9.1% by June. But Biden is a highly skilled liar: Inflation has fallen for six straight months — all the way down to 6.5%. The average for 2022 was 8%, soaring from 1.2% in 2020.
You see, inflation was a paltry 1.2% at the end of the Trump administration. Today, it is at 6.5%. That is a huge jump. And it was much higher at times over the last few years. Thanks to Biden’s reckless spending and other terrible decisions, the prices of everything continue to rise at an alarming rate.
Gas prices continue to remain high, hurting not only inflation but many other parts of the country. This has nothing to do with Russia–and everything to do with Biden’s decision to stop U.S. drilling.
How about food prices? Last year, food prices increased by 9.9%. That is a staggering jump. But for people in real-world situations, the costs were even higher. “Food-at-home prices increased by 11.4 percent, while food-away-from-home prices increased by 7.7 percent.”
Biden is such a failure, that egg prices–a staple for most Americans–rose in just December by 11.1%. And since December of 2021, egg prices have risen by 59.9%. And according to reports, we haven’t even hit the max yet! They are projected to get even more expensive over the coming year.
Eggs. Not expensive jewelry or luxury cars. Eggs. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, in Joe Biden’s America. By all metrics, he has helped bring America to its knees. All to benefit himself, his liberal allies, and his buddies overseas.
- Biden recently boasted that the U.S. economy was strong.
- He ignored inflation, which continues to be higher than before he entered office.
- He also ignored rising gas prices, skyrocketing food prices, and a looming recession.
