I’ve written several times in the last few months about the skyrocketing inflation that middle America is enduring right now. The costs on some of the most commonly bought items have jumped, including food, building materials, used cars, and of course, gasoline and other types of energy.

With that very negative news really setting in with voters, the Biden administration has decided to go on the offensive. In doing so, they’ve executed perhaps the most pathetic brag in presidential history.

I mean, who brags about saving people 16 cents?

I think the bigger story here is that the White House has clearly gotten the message – people are tired of the inflation and are blaming Biden for it. In fact, there was a recent poll that showed 60% of respondents blamed increased government spending in Washington (i.e. the “America Rescue Plan”) for the big jumps.
