President Joe Biden and the radicals who comprise his administration have suddenly found themselves trapped in a bog of political quicksand as the consequences for their miserably failed economic policies are already threatening to suck the Democratic Party under in next year’s midterm elections and beyond.
With the rampant inflation that amounts to a crushing hidden tax on Americans spiraling out of control and product shortages expected to take a big bite out of Christmas wish lists, Biden’s overly ambitious and transformative “Build Back Better” agenda is facing stiff headwinds in an example of just how quickly political fortunes can shift, especially in an era of uncertainty with no adult leadership in the White House.
The economic woes are no longer possible to ignore and, despite a concerted push by the administration and its media shills to gaslight Americans into believing that inflation is actually a good thing, facts matter and one of those facts is that inflation is at its highest in over 30 years, according to last week’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) which was a devastating blow to Biden and his policy geniuses.
Now Biden is insisting that the remedy for the skyrocketing prices that are pummeling families is spending trillions of additional dollars through the passage of the colossal spending package that is currently stalled in Congress where it faces an uncertain fate.
On Sunday in a missive from his Twitter account, Biden invoked the regime’s standard excuse that the COVID pandemic is the reason for supply chain disruptions and that the only road to economic recovery is to pass his “Build Back Better” act while acknowledging the staggering inflation that has taken root on his watch.
COVID-19 has disrupted supply chains around the world. Now, even in the midst of a historic economic recovery, Americans are facing prices that are just too high.
We must pass the Build Back Better Act to lower costs for working families and help get people back to work.

Biden also put the burden on Congress which has already passed the bipartisan “infrastructure” bill but has spent months dickering over the costly social engineering component of his extremist agenda.
Congress can help ease inflationary pressures and lower costs for working families.
Let’s pass the Build Back Better Act.

The reaction was swift, brutal and a sign that Americans are rapidly losing confidence in Biden whose incompetent handling of the nation is only exceeded by his aversion to telling the truth.
“Sure, we lit the house on fire. But trust us, even though the next bill looks a lot like more gasoline, it will fix everything.”

things are too expensive.
The chicken wings I buy at the grocery store went up to $15 dollars. They used to cost $6!

It’s just such BS, here’s a new problem, and it just so happens our basket of pre-existing policy desires is what’s needed to address that problem

Yes, spending trillions more is definitely going to help with the inflation we are seeing.

Dumping trillions is inflationary and hurts America Mr. Unity. Stopping petroleum pipelines, drilling hurts America Mr. Unity. There is NOT one crisis, out of many, that you have solved Mr. Unity. Start with the So. Border. Get Americans out of Afghanistan. Get tough on China.

Biden also tweeted that his “Build Back Better Framework” will result in tax cuts for the middle class and will only affect the wealthy.
The Build Back Better Framework will strengthen the middle class by bringing down costs on everyday essentials and enacting tax cuts for the middle class—and we’ll get it done by asking the wealthiest to pay their fair share.
— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) November 14, 2021
That also wasn’t well received.
Joe Biden: I will not raise taxes on anyone making under $400,000 a year
The Tax Policy Center: Build Back Better would raise taxes on up to 30% of middle class households
Who do you believe?

With no end in sight to what some have called “Bidenflation” and the shortages that have America on a fast-track to becoming the next Venezuela, the doddering POTUS has struggled to stay on message and last week, in one of his trademark gaffes, Biden self-owned on gas prices which are delivering a serious pain at the pump.

“Did you ever think you’d be paying this much for a gallon of gas?” Biden asked during a Baltimore event to promote the infrastructure bill. “In some parts of California, they’re paying four dollars and fifty cents a gallon.”
Compounding Biden’s efforts to get his signature package across the finish line are the results from the Virginia and New Jersey off-year elections, both of which served as a rebuke to Democrats and their agenda as well as polls that, in addition to showing that the honeymoon is over for the 46th president who now has a dismal 38 percent approval rating, indicate that Republicans are on the verge of backing up the truck and cleaning out both houses of Congress next year.
Biden’s biggest problem? The more that he talks, the worse it gets.
