"Inflation soared over the past year at its fastest pace in more than 40 years, with costs for food, gasoline, housing, and other necessities squeezing American consumers and wiping out the pay raises that many people have received.
The Labor Department said Tuesday that its consumer price index jumped 8.5% in March from 12 months earlier — the biggest year-over-year increase since December 1981."
Despite a protective media, most Americans - as in just about everyone - knows the root of the problem isn't a month long war on the other side of the planet causing this record inflation, nor covid 19 - it's the Big Guy in the center chair.
Sadly, the coming red wave of republicans - and the presumed impeachment to remove Joe - won't happen until spring of '23, far too late to save thousands of small businesses.
And of course it could get much worse as the price of food in particular continues to skyrocket.
This is what vice president Kamala Harris had to say about what's being done about the now record pace of inflation yesterday:
“I acknowledge one must acknowledge that prices are going up, and that people are working hard and, in many cases, are worried about whether they can get through the end of the month and make it all work,” Harris said.
“What I can say is that people deserve to know that their president, that our administration, is concerned enough to do something about it, so that is what we are doing,” she added.
Clear as mud.
Harris may well be the only person worse than Joe Biden to run the country. So we got that going for us.
I see a bit different - oh sure, she's an asshole, but she's also a deeply stupid one to boot.
A person utterly unfit for the job... or really any job where a modicum of intelligence is required.
I shudder to think that before she was one heartbeat/impeachment away from the Presidency, she was the Attorney General for the largest state in the Union.
Little wonder she was the first to drop out of democrat primaries; a deeply unpopular candidate, she won not a single primary delegate despite spending $40,000,000.00 and in her own words, "Fucking moving to Iowa."
It does make you wonder how Joe came to choose her... other than they don't dare try to remove him or they get the cackling bag of dumb that is our Vice President.
Kamala Harris - making Dan Quayle look betterer with each passing day.
