The latest inflation figure —not good. As reported by Fox News, “the Labor Department on Friday said the consumer price index, a broad measure of the price of everyday goods including gasoline, groceries and rents, rose 8.6% in May from a year ago. Prices jumped 1% in the one-month period from April.”
Prominent GOP voices ripped Biden and his cohorts for, essentially, being asleep at the wheel. While inflation continues to hit record highs, the Biden Admin continues to celebrate a booming economy in a seemingly alternate universe.
And when Joe isn’t celebrating the economy, he’s blaming others for how bad it is —you can’t have it both ways, Joe!
“One of the reasons prices have gone up is because a handful of companies who control the market have raised shipping prices by as much as 1,000%. It’s outrageous — and I’m calling on Congress to crack down on them.” Joe’s team tweeted.

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) shared his reaction to the inflation report on Twitter.
“Wow – inflation off the charts. Joe Biden’s destruction of the middle class continues.”

Hawley is also calling on Biden to resign if he can’t get a handle on the economic crisis.
“Joe Biden’s war on American families continues. His policies have pushed inflation to generational highs, and he still won’t take any responsibility,” Hawley told Fox News Digital. “If he can’t do the job, he should step down now.”
Joe can’t hide from his inflation problem —even the NYT says Americans are having trouble affording everyday items.
