You’ve seen it with your own eyes. Your weekly grocery bill. Your gas bill. And everything else.
If you’re lucky enough to find what you want instead of bare shelves, you are paying a LOT extra for whatever you are buying.
A report by the Washington Examiner, using data from the Penn Wharton Budget model and a Congressional Budget Office report, shows that Americans are paying an extra $5000 a year due to inflation and being pushed into higher tax brackets.
$5,000 a year – or approximately $416 a month.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
I’m sure you have some extra cash laying around to pay the “Biden election tax” don’t ya?
That would be the cost of America electing a complete idiot for president.
Of course we all know that didn’t really happen. Biden wasn’t actually “elected” president and now we are all paying the price for that. A very high price.
Inflation has risen 7% over the past year, the highest in 40 years according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And that’s excluding food and energy so we all know the increase is much higher than the democrats are admitting to.
But we’re used to the fake numbers. Most statistics we get from the government are a total fraud. Not just the COVID-19 numbers.
Another fraud that is going on concurrently is the stock market which actually rose even after hearing the inflation news.
But it’s all good as long as the elite democrat politicians like Nancy Pelosi are able to use insider information and shape policy to keep making money in the stock market while the rest of us pay hundreds of dollars more for the cost of living every month.
