Default You are to blame for record inflation

According to Janet Yellen.


After the FJB admin so brilliantly handled covid the American people went out and spent too much, thus causing inflation.


I was going ask if they really expected us to believe that, but after the last 2 elections it seems that 1/2 the country does.

Yellen argued the administration managed the COVID-19 pandemic so well that consumers felt comfortable to "splurge" on goods.




How were consumers 'splurging' on stuff they couldn't get due to the supply chain constraints we kept hearing about?

I splurged on some eggs and diesel fuel. I had to change deodorant. It used to cost $3.97 but now the stores donít carry it and itís $9.99 plus shipping to order it. Idiots!

We have inflation now, and forever, as spending is out of control, has been for 30 years, way too many people are on the taxpayer teat.

yellen, while a total effing moron, may be smartest among that shit-for-brains socialist cabal.

Absolutely. Shutting down supply and increasing demand (stimmie checks), causes prices to skyrocket and started with his administration, although he could only be found guilty of listening to the expertsÖ Fauci, Scarf Lady, (and China, i.e. supply) for starts.

Iíd give him a pass on this considering the initial hype from media and political pressure from scared folks like Murrat.

Bird flu has been a big local news item. Perhaps hyperbolic on my part but maybe these global turds are behind that too? Lots of coincidences, regardless.

I hate to look in the rearview mirror but if Trump had made some comment like that there would be impeachment proceedings.

Hell, even though Biden's "Old Yeller" said it, Garland may still appoint a Special Counsel to determine if Trump was involved.

By this same logic, we should have had deflation during Covid.

I don't get food prices shooting up during scamdemenic... People were eating same amount regardless of at home or in restaurants. People were dieing off so in theory should have been more food shouldn't there have been and thus cheaper food?

I've taken dumps that have a better understanding of the economy than this current administration.

Supply chain constraints were driving the prices up across the board, along with increased labor costs.

The real culprit here is spending, but of course Yellen doesn't want to acknowledge it; despite that, the Dems are looking to go on a lame-duck spending binge, and there's little to stop them.
