    Thank You Biden a idiot President.

    I think everyone is unhappy with inflation, but to blame it on Biden is a big mistake. Policies of past presidents also contribute to it, but the biggest culprit is COVID and American Greed. COVID has knocked what few workers we have from the workforce causing shortages and price increases. That coupled with the greed of corporations who streamlined their manufacturing and supply chains to the point that they broke because of their fragility.

    Inflation for those who aren’t getting a wage increase this year means life costs more, less money into retirement or savings and a plethora of other issues.

    This idiot told us yesterday that he’s done a great job in his first year in office. There is such a disconnect. Biden doesn’t have to buy groceries, only to find empty shelves. He doesn’t have to buy gas for the “Beast”, only to find gas prices at least $1.00 more per gallon than this time last year. The sad part of all this is we’re just one year into this administration. SAD!

    And THIS is why Biden and the left’s approval is plummeting (among dozens of other incompetencies). And yet the poll declares that, despite being concerned, the left won’t hold themselves accountable. Embarrassing. 🤦‍♂️

    Again, what I think is important, not what I feel. Inflation is usually caused by an oversupply of money. Congress and the Federal Reserve are causing this by uncontrolled borrowing/lending. A glut in money in the economy without an increase in production will always cause inflation. The fault is on Congress.

    No surprised. If you look at the situation leading up to now and the fact that inflation is happening on a global scale it shouldn’t be much of a shock to most people. To expect a complete turnaround of the situation in a year or less is delusional.

    Your tell them, burrkitty! ❤️😊❤️😊. They want to blame everything on Biden. If the grotesque baboon, that some used to call president, had acknowledged and taken steps to deal with Covid, things would be much better now. Isn’t it funny how the Repugnants make, or do not handle, the problems they helped create, but leave them for the Dems to clean up, time after time? When will the minority see that their Repugnants are blaming the Dems for the problems they have created? When do they see how their Repugnants are stonewalling Biden at every step that he is taking to save us and our country from a dictator wannabe and make our lives and our country better? It’s time to put the orange baboon in jail for his coup attempt . Unless we do that, our GREAT America is doomed. No doubt about it!

    After the Biden press conference, I'm convinced he has NO CLUE what American consumers are going thru! His wife's relative surprised him 2 weeks ago when she complained the price of a pound of hamburger was $4.99 a pound. The same hamburger I bought a year ago for $2.89 a pound. NO CLUE that as a senior citizen on a fixed income I'm using my savings that I thought would be for medical care for my daily food.

    It’s happening everywhere and it’s recoil from the pandemic effects. It was also predicted by economists. It’s not political, it’s just a thing that is happening.

    P.S. It is interesting to compare the comments from the Trump cult here to those from the rest of us. The former are the usual hysterical fact-free rants with all the buzzwords they have been taught to use without understanding what they actually mean. Also LOTS OF CAPS because they dearly love shouting. Meanwhile the rest of us point out the real-world origins of the problem and provide documentation to support our view.

    I am, of course, concerned about inflation. But I also know it's a world-wide problem, the roots of which include corporate policies like "just in time" manufacturing that assumed an uninterrupted flow of worldwide commerce and completely a reliable transportation infrastructure. None of which were reasonable assumptions (indeed, some us have known they were bad assumptions for decades), as the worldwide SARS-Cov-2 pandemic has demonstrated. None of which, of course, will prevent the radical right from ignoring the scope of the problem and blame it on "progressive" policies of the Biden administration, even though the far right Senate has never allowed any of those policies to be implemented.

    Consumer prices need to come down. The economy is doing good but, inflation is not.

    The inflation is not Biden fault

    Yet another excuse for corporations to price gouge. Inflation is an artificial event made to make already bloated corporations and their shareholders richer.

    Biden administration is the cause

    Everyone is concerned about the rising prices but I understand why - we were all staying at home, not buying anything for 2 years and now everyone wants what they didn't have. Everything shut down so supplies are scarce, getting supplies to where they belong is slow, people are still getting Covid because so many people will not get the vaccine. What do you expect? Lets get Covid behind us and things will improve (slowly but surely). Quit blaming the President as he has tried to do what the former President would not do - just nice to have an adult in the White House instead of a petulant child.
