MSNBC continues to do damage control for the Biden administration. As soon as an issue comes up that makes Joe Biden look bad, “reporters” like Stephanie Ruhle are there to spin the story for viewers and minimize the damage to Democrats. The latest example of this is Ruhle’s response to inflation and the impact surging prices are having on American’s wallets.
While the Biden admin wants to act like inflation is temporary and Treasury Secretary Yellen wants to blame it on COVID-19, most Americans realize rising prices are not going away soon and it’s more than just the coronavirus.
Any economist worth their salt will tell you inflation is a result of massive government spending. And guess who just signed a trillion dollar spending package days ago and is trying to pass another one this month?
California’s gas prices just hit an all time high this week. Why? Biden’s policies. When you shut down pipelines and production in your own country, of course you’re going to pay more when you have to import oil. Now Biden is begging OPEC nations in the Middle East to help.
Yes, gas price hikes could be temporary if policies are reversed, but that’s not happening unless leadership changes, or maybe for a short time if Biden thinks it could help him get reelected in 2024. For now, we’re stuck with climate change talk rather than helping people at the pump.
Other inflation isn’t so easy. Most retail prices have a way of going up and not going back down. “Breaking Points” shows examples of how bad it is, with 30-year highs that have no real way to go back down. Discover more now in the latest video from Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti.
