I’m fairly certain that Joe Biden doesn’t understand inflation.
He’s now finally acknowledging that inflation is a problem, after his people for months claimed it would be “transitory,” but as even MSNBC’s Chuck Todd notes, it’s six months later, it’s no longer “transitory.”

Joe Biden’s National Economic Council Director Brian Deese is the guy who said if you just didn’t consider how much meat cost, then other things were pretty much within norms.
The Biden team didn’t even understand it six months ago. They just wanted to pull the covers up over their heads and hope it would go away. As I previously noted it’s the Bystander Biden administration, the bad things are just happening around them, not their fault.
The Bystander Administration gave more evidence that they still don’t understand it now. Because Joe Biden’s answer as to how he’s solving it defies all reality. He previously acknowledged that his stimulus checks were part of the reason for the spike in inflation. So what does he argue now will solve inflation? More spending with his Build Back Better bill, of course.
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.

So now that Biden has dug us a huge hole, let’s just keep on digging, he argues. Oh, and by the way about that “historic recovery?” I don’t know what he’s looking at but it sure doesn’t look like a recovery to the folks who are having to pay more for everything. Although it is “historic” — as in highest inflation in more than 30 years, as well as reminding us of the horrible inflationary times of Jimmy Carter.
There is nothing in the bill that will stop inflation, indeed it can only make it worse. But the fact that they’ll sell the spending monstrosity as a solution to inflation says how dishonest and/or ignorant Biden really is.
But hey, no worries, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain says we’re better off now than a year ago and it’s all good because we’re jabbing five-year-olds with the vaccine so that will help everything. Doesn’t that reassure you? Check Jake Tapper’s face as Klain claims we’re better off now than we were a year ago — even he can’t maintain his face on that one.

Jabbing five-year-olds won’t do a darn thing to help the inflation and Ron Klain needs to list even one problem that they’ve solved. I can list a boatload that they’ve caused.
When even CNN can’t hold it together for the gaslighting, you know that it’s not going well.
