White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki -once again- refused to acknowledge Joe Biden’s role in skyrocketing prices and empty shelves this week; instead claiming Republicans are somehow “rooting for inflation.”
“Why, when Americans are seeing higher prices, are Republicans united against a bill to lower core costs on prescription drugs, health care, child care, and elder care?” asked Psaki rhetorically on social media.
“They’re rooting for inflation,” she answered.

The Press Secretary made similar comments last week.
“One in four Americans have experienced some kind of loss of income as a result of higher prices,” said one reporter during her daily briefing. “How urgent is it? Is there any sort of specific concern that this is going to affect the overall economy?”
“A lot of the talk about inflation in general out there, it’s become a political cudgel and it shouldn’t be. It’s impacting millions of Americans, no matter their political party,” said Psaki.
