On Tuesday, Joe Biden left the White House to travel to New Hampshire.
During his address, he spewed more lies to the American people.
He also noted that inflation is more than likely to continue while Russia keeps its presence in Ukraine.
Blame It on Vlad
Joe Biden continues to blame Vladimir Putin and Russia for the rising inflation in this country.
Biden stated that he realizes that American families are “struggling with higher prices.”
Higher prices is an understatement, however.
While inflation is sitting around eight percent, the staples that most of us purchase on a regular basis are up as much as 30, 40, and 50 percent.
Speaking from personal experience, my weekly grocery bill has gone from about $80 to more than $130… that is $200 a month!
Insurance costs have gone up, gasoline prices are up, and rent payments are up.
This was all happening long before Russia made its move on Ukraine, yet Biden is trying to put the majority of inflation on Putin.
He stated, “The second big reason for inflation is Vladimir Putin. Not a joke.
“Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has driven up gas prices and food prices all over the world.”
Last month, Biden stated that “about 70% of the increase in inflation was a consequence of Putin’s price hike.”
That is just a flat-out lie.
Inflation was up more than six percent before Russia invaded Ukraine, and it is now sitting around 8.5 percent.
Even if we conceded that Putin is responsible for the rise in inflation after the invasion, it comes nowhere near the 70 percent that Biden is crediting him.
Biden keeps pushing the “Putin price hike,” but let’s not forget Biden’s weakness led to Putin making his move against Ukraine in the first place.
This is all on Biden… every last cent of it.
