    Blame :angered: Unfunded Stimulus Checks.
    Each successive distribution did more to fund INFLATION

    Didn't Anyone "know"?
    Didn't Anyone "figure"?


    A better means would be a distribution of Food Stamps
    that can only be used for :flagus: agriculture products.

    except bananas
    And Fed. watchers to bust food profiteers & monopolies.

    Control exports of some food such as beef & pork.

    Witness The :flagcanada:ization of :flagus:

    All of those stimulus checks combined are less than the current cost of inflation.

    that is all that the Democrat voters can cite; no more mean tweets

    How great is that? We no longer call a spade a spade, but we will pay more for everything

    Democrat votes hurt everyone

    Interesting that Americans demand higher and higher pay and stimulus monies, all of which create higher spending, which in turn causes inflation...then Americans whine.

    The price of gasoline has nothing to do with Democrats????

    Americans have gotten back to driving more as the pandemic slows (thank you big demand)...there have been domestic supply interruptions (thank you hurricanes)...and energy markets overseas have made crude oil more expensive (thank you OPEC). You need to understand supply and demand!

    from that article

    First, inflation lessens the real value of debt. In 2020, American households had around $14.5 trillion in debt from their mortgages, credit cards, student loans, and other sources. Inflation of 6.2 percent means that the real value of that $14.5 trillion is now just $13.65 trillion in last year’s dollars.

    hmm, so we should simply break out our calculator and those of you with mortgages, just multiply by 93.8 and send that amount; see what happens

    Good lord it's nuts to see Democrat voters trying to spin this

    Me back in May

    "Prices are set by the expense to produce the product or service, if the market price is below that no products nor service. And the market determining that is fine but that is NOT what is happening now. Government is injecting itself into the labor market and competing with private employers by paying people not to work. THAT is where inflation kicks in and those wage increases by government fiat and competition will quickly disappear as the value of the dollars go down and prices go up."

    "Are you really claiming that Biden and the Dems have not passed and are not proposing and tax measures that will effect the cost of business and the cost of employment and that inflation is not starting to raise it's ugly head again? "

    "He's handing out the free taxpayer money keeping people from going back to work and that is harming the economy, he is the one threatening the huge tax rate increases and employment cost and that is harming the economy, his the one engaged in the huge spending and printing money causing inflation to start to raise it's ugly head."

    April
    "Government inflating the currency inflates the money supply which is inflation."

    I bet you even got yourself on record warning what would happen.

    Democrat anti-domestic energy policies have a lot to do with the price at the pump and to heat homes

    Over and over again I warned that this inflation was a lock. These Leftists refuse to believe anything that "hurts their side". They have forgotten that "their side" is the United States of America. They seem to hate the USA.

    Can you point me to their pro-domestic energy policies to keep gas prices lower and us independent and back to the largest producer in the world as we were under Trump? Biden's first day in office he issued an anti-domestic energy EO. Remember what it was? And he is now considering another one, know that that is?

    Official inflation is a formulated calculation, which is periodically calculated by numerous organizations, including the government, and the results are not hidden from anyone.

    All the stimulus monies and legislation for infrastructure, etc. are presented to benefit ALL AMERICANS.

    I guess you don't listen when Biden talks since he is always harping about benefiting all Americans...

    infrastructure has been delayed for years, thankfully Biden is now addressing what the last administration failed too
