Days ago, Joe Biden stood before America with some new remarks about inflation and the high gas prices that are strangling people’s finances.
The president declared he isn’t capable of tapping a switch that causes gas and food expenses to go down. What Biden didn’t mention during this speech is his repeated rejection of pro-US energy policies that would reduce gas prices fairly quickly.
When it comes to economic matters, the White House’s rhetoric has been all over the place. First, it claimed inflation was just part of a transition to a better economy.
Then, when this didn’t pan out, the Biden administration waved aside inflation as “high-class problems.” Although, inflation ironically has the worst impacts on people who are economically vulnerable, not folks who are wealthy or even fairly well off.
Biden is now choosing to double down on the latest assertion that Russian President Putin bears accountability for inflation and obscene gas costs.

During a speech in Delaware, Biden described higher gas costs as the “Putin price hike.”
