Inflation is a serious problem. For the second time in one week, we are seeing record high inflation. The producer price index increased 9.8% year over year.
Don't worry says the White House, we can blame 'the greed of those meat conglomerates.'
Inflation is the direct result of government policies in response to COVID. It's that simple. Shutdowns. Stimulus. Extended unemployment benefits. Fear.
This is why there is another pandemic in this country, a pandemic of lies, spin, and blame. There are very few, if any, politicians who will admit they made a wrong decision, they contributed to the problem of rising prices, or they learned something along the way.
Instead blame everyone else for the problem. Blame the unvaccinated when their COVID policies don't work. Blame Trump for everything. Blame companies for the rising prices.
Is anyone surprised at their desperation to throw people off the scent of their failures? We're not.
