Everyday Americans are suffering the fastest escalating meat prices in decades and the debilitating costs have no end in sight. Although the fake news media fails to report on critical issues such as the price of goods that affect working families, not everyone is turning a blind eye.
In this troubling video, conservative firebrand Glenn Beck puts beef prices under the microscope and uncovers why we cannot control inflated costs.
It would be easy, and inaccurate, to blame political leaders solely for the long-term beef price problem. It’s true that Democrats caused a labor shortage by overpaying unemployment benefits to motivate workers to stay home. But this rise in prices started before Democrats were artificially keeping workers home. We saw the price of meat rise during the pandemic, then decline as the country began reopening.
Once Joe Biden and the Democrats seized control, things certainly got worse. The increases in fuel got rolled into ranching costs on the backend. They also got added into the market costs after trucking is required to transport cattle to slaughterhouses and packaged meat to grocery stores.
But as Glenn Beck and ranchers point out, tipping the scales against consumers through political policies is not necessarily the major issue. His insight cuts through the inflation fog in a way that allows everyone to see what’s going down.
