Biden can blame Putin all he wants, but inflation is here to stay. It’s been skyrocketing since last year, after Biden’s ill-chosen “stimulus” bill. And it just hit a new, terrible milestone.
The latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for March shows that inflation continued its upward trend with a 1.2 percent increase since last month and an 8.5 percent increase over the last year according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Inflation in the United States has not been this high since December 1981.
That’s right, inflation hasn’t been this bad since the time soon after Jimmy Carter. A time before millions of Americans were even born.
This increase is contributing to the rise in cost for everything, from food to rent to gas. Basically, anything you need or want. Americans are not happy and they’re letting Biden know.
From Rasmussen Reports:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll… for Tuesday shows that 41% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Biden’s job performance. Fifty-eight percent (58%) disapprove.
Biden’s current approval, according to Rasmussen Reports, is a dismal 41%. His disapproval is 58%, with an index rating of -26. This comes as news hits that inflation has hit a 41-year high.
How was Trump’s approval at this point in his presidency? Trump had a 50% approval, according to Rasmussen, at the same time. That is a 9-point lead over Biden, the man who promised to “build back better” than Trump.
Hasn’t turned out that way, huh? Biden’s failed policies have led to one crisis after another. Since 2021, his administration has refused to own up to its mistakes.
Instead, they have always blamed something or someone else (including the American people, yes you). These days, Biden is pushing the line that Putin is to blame.
But these numbers show that few are buying it. The economy has been a wreck ever since Joe pushed his far-left, socialist agenda.
And it will only get worse unless Congress steps in and stop him. Sadly, Democrats refuse to hold Biden accountable. In fact, they are egging him on to do much worse.
Only when Republicans retake Congress will we see something improve.
- Inflation has hit a 41-year high, matching rising prices from Jimmy Carter’s era.
- Joe Biden’s approval is 41%, 9 points lower than Trump’s from the same point.
- Biden continues to blame Putin, not himself, for the ailing economy.
