“I think it’s the peak of the [inflation] crisis.”

-Joe Biden in December of 202

Inflation rose by 8.3% in August, coming in higher than economists’ predictions and triggering a massive stock market selloff.


Back up: Inflation has been at least 5% or higher for the past 15 straight months of Biden’s residency, with the last three months coming in at:


July: 8.5%

June: 9.1%

May: 8.6%


Perspective: The day Biden took office, Trump handed him an economy experiencing very low 1.4% inflation. Since the day Biden took office, inflation has risen by 13.2% overall.


More perspective: If you divide 100% of your yearly income by 12 months, it equals 8.3% per month. So 8.3% inflation means you lost exactly one month’s worth of income thanks to Joe Biden’s economic policies.


By category: Here are some of the ways that prices rose in August, compared to one year ago:


🏠 Home utility gas: +33%

⛽️ Gasoline: +25.6%

💡 Electricity: +15.8%

🍳 Food at home: +13.5%

🚙 New cars: +10.1%

🛻 Used cars: +6.2%

🏘 Shelter: +6.2%

🏥 Medical care: +5.6%

🥛 Milk: +17%

🥩 Meat, poultry, fish, eggs: +10.6%


Bad timing: Joe Biden happened to be holding a signing ceremony yesterday for his criminally, deceptively titled “Inflation Reduction Act” [which does not reduce inflation]. So as scary inflation data was coming in, Joe Biden was throwing a party to declare his success fighting inflation. Even CNN had to point out the irony.

What happens next: In the short term, economic pain. Americans’ real wages [wage gains minus inflation] have declined for 17 straight months. In the long term, it could get a lot worse.


Big picture: Our inflation problem began back in March of 2021 when Biden spent $1.9 trillion on the ‘American Rescue Plan’. You can’t just print new money and expect nothing to happen. But Biden hasn’t learned from his mistakes. Last month alone he spent another $740 billion on the aforementioned ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ and is planning to spend another $1 trillion on student debt cancelation. Inflation is never going to come down if the government keeps spending money that we don’t have.
