Are we having fun yet?

The new inflation numbers are out and they are absolutely horrific. After the terrible report in April, which showed a 4.2% rise in prices, May’s numbers clocked in at 5% compared to last year as middle-class Americans continue to get absolutely crushed by Biden’s economic “recovery.”

“Prices were up by 5 percent in May compared with a year ago, the largest increase since the Great Recession, continuing a steady climb in inflation even as policymakers insist on staying the course.” https://t.co/AhI1Nr13QO

I love the subheadline there. The concern of the Post isn’t that this hurts normal people to a great degree. Rather, they want us all to know that this won’t rattle Biden. Well, thank God for that, right? Because that’s truly what matters here.

Prices on everything from building supplies to groceries to restaurant prices to used cars are skyrocketing right now, and there’s no real end in sight.

Janet Yellen actually came out after the disastrous April inflation report and downplayed it. These people don’t care about you. They only care about power.
