Under President Biden’s Reign of Error, inflation is the highest in 40 years. But Powell and The Fed are still overstimulating the economy, and Congress is contributing to the inflation disaster with short-sighted political policies and spending (flooding the economy with stimulus spending helping to drive up prices). Even Democrat US Senator Elizabeth Warren gets it.
Here is Biden’s inflation scorecard in one chart. Under Inflation Joe, foodstuffs are up 58%, gasoline is up 72%, diesel fuel is up 154%, and green energy element Lithium is up 645% (no wonder electric car manufacturer Telsa is raising their prices 10%). Of course, The Federal Reserve keeps on expanding its balance sheet, UP 50.3% under Inflation Joe.
House price growth is up 69% and the 30-year mortgage rate is UP 83.3% and currently is at 5.28%. The orange line is the growth path.
Yes, prices have risen even more after Russia Invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022. But most of the inflation was baked-in prior to the Russian invasion. Sorry Jen Psaki, but you are wrong about inflation being all Putin’s fault.
