So Much For Transitory! Bidenflation Rages On, Crushing American Families & Businesses
Since Joe Biden took office, inflation has skyrocketed across all sectors of the American economy – robbing all Americans, especially the poor and those on living on fixed incomes, of a significant portion of their spending power. In fact, inflation is now costing the average American family an extra $536 per month compared to when Joe Biden took office – even if inflation stopped entirely, Americans will still pay an extra $6,400 dollars over the next 12 months. Americans literally can’t afford Biden and Democrats’ reckless policies. What you need to know:
As prices continue to rise and many store shelves are empty, consumer sentiment has now plummeted to a new “decade-long low.”
March’s Producer Price Index, which measures wholesale inflation, spiked a whopping 11.2% from last year – reaching yet another all-time high.
This is the 12th consecutive month producer price increases have hit record highs under Joe Biden.
Core producer prices – a measure which excludes food and energy – also increased at a record 9.2%.
Another key measure of inflation, the Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) price index – spiked 6.4% from a year ago, the largest increase in 40 years.
No matter where Americans go, they’re hit with the harsh reality of rising prices.
Americans are starting to cut back “on mainstays from toothpaste to baby formula.”
Some retirees have no choice but to re-enter the workforce “because the prices of food are triple of what they were.”
Food is set to get even more expensive this year, with the USDA forecasting that “all food prices are now predicted to increase between 4.5 and 5.5%” in 2022.
83% of Americans report being either a great deal or a fair amount worried about inflation, with mentions of inflation as the nation’s most important problem at their highest level since 1985.
26% of small businesses report inflation as the number one problem their business faces – the highest level since 1981.
In July, Biden said price increases were “expected to be temporary,” there is “ nobody suggesting there’s unchecked inflation on the way,” and that “it’s highly unlikely that it’s going to be long-term inflation that’s going to get out of hand.”
In December, Biden said inflation was at its “peak” and that it should soon decline rapidly.
In February, Biden said “We're in a situation now where you should have peace of mind.”
Now, Biden is shamelessly attempting to downplay rising prices by blaming the war in Ukraine, even though inflation has outpaced wages every single month since he and Democrats passed their $1.9 trillion “stimulus” bill.
But the American people know the truth – they know Biden and Democrats’ radical policies are to blame for the nation’s inflation crisis.
The bottom line: Given his disastrous record, it’s no surprise 69% of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation. Americans may be paying higher prices now, but it will be Biden and the Democrats who pay at the ballot box this November. Red States Outperform Blue States New data confirms Republican-led states continue to see more jobs and lower unemployment. Republican governors and legislatures are leading the way in getting Americans back to work, while Democrat-led states are lagging behind. What you need to know:
Through March, 9 of the top 10 states for jobs recovered since the coronavirus pandemic began are led by Republican governors, and all 10 states have Republican-controlled legislatures.
The top four states for jobs recovered are all led by Republicans.
11 of the 13 states that have more jobs than when the pandemic hit are Republican-led: Utah, Idaho, Montana, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, South Dakota, Indiana and Tennessee.
All Republican-led states have recovered at least two-thirds of their lost jobs.
Republican-led states on average have recovered over 98 percent of their lost jobs compared to just 86 percent for Democrat-run states.
Out of the top 25 states with the lowest unemployment rates, 20 are led by Republican governors and 21 have Republican-controlled legislatures.
12 of the 15 states with the lowest unemployment rates are led by Republicans.
The average unemployment rate for the nation’s 28 states with Republican governors is just 3.2 percent.
Democrat-led states have an average unemployment rate nearly a percentage point higher – 4.1 percent.
Two-thirds of the states with unemployment rates lower than when the pandemic began are led by Republican governors, and 89 percent have Republican-controlled legislatures.
17 states hit new record low unemployment rates, 13 of which have Republican governors and 16 have Republican-controlled legislatures.
The bottom line: This new data is yet another illustration of a simple fact – Republican policies work, and Democrat policies don’t. Despite facing economic headwinds from the reckless policies of the Biden administration at a federal level, Republican states are creating growth and prosperity for the Americans who call them home. Americans Are Fed Up With Democrats’ COVID Hypocrisy The American people are fed up with Democrats’ COVID power grabs and hypocrisy. As we have seen since the beginning of the pandemic, Democrats continue to hold themselves to a different standard than the rest of the country. What you need to know:
Kamala Harris did not wear a mask after being exposed to COVID, in clear defiance of the CDC rules the Biden administration wants to force on the rest of us.
Press Secretary Jen Psaki insisted Harris “has been wearing a mask inside” after she was exposed to COVID, and that there was “no” indoor reception or ceremony celebrating Biden’s Supreme Court pick. Psaki lied.
The White House’s own video proves Harris was maskless in the Oval Office just inches from Joe Biden.
Psaki’s excuse is simply laughable – the American people see right through it.
At the same time Biden is extending the mask mandate for planes and public transportation, he’s also ending Title 42.
One day after kissing Joe Biden on the cheek at a White House event, Speaker Nancy Pelosi tested positive for COVID-19. The White House said she was not deemed a “close contact” of Biden, despite the kiss.
In one New York store, a sign read: “Masks Required only for children ages 2 to 3.”
In Philadelphia, Democrats are re-imposing a citywide mask mandate, even though the action “goes against recommendations by the CDC.”
Democrats religiously cling to the effectiveness of draconian COVID lockdowns while disparaging Republican leaders who chose a different path for their states – but according to a new study, Republican states outperformed Democrat states on health, educational, and economic outcomes of their pandemic response.
17 of the top 20 states with the best COVID response scores are led by Republican governors.
Nine of the top ten states are led by Republicans, and nine of the bottom ten states and districts are led by Democrats.
If it wasn’t official before, it is now – Joe Biden was wrong. Andrew Cuomo was not the “gold standard” on responding to COVID.
The study found 19 of the top 20 states for kids getting back into the classroom during the 2020-2021 school year were led by Republicans.
In contrast, 18 of the bottom 20 states and districts were led by Democrats.
Democrat governors openly say that parents shouldn’t have a say in their kids’ education. Voters want a governor that puts their family first – that’s why they’ll vote Republican.
The bottom line: Republican governors followed the science, opened schools, and gave small businesses the tools they needed to thrive. Joe Biden and the Democrats should take note – their radical policies don’t work. The American people are fed up with Democrats’ hypocritical, elitist actions. They’ll deliver victories to Republicans in November who will bring sanity back to federal and state COVID policies.
