Last weekend, Americans gathered together to celebrate a day in which we remember our veterans. Memorial Day is an important time for Americans to reflect on those brave men and women who sacrificed their lives, so we could enjoy liberty.
It is also the unofficial start to the Summer vacation season. This is when millions of Americans ordinarily go on trips, host cookouts, and celebrate the warm weather. Unfortunately, this year, Americans are cutting back on the celebrations, thanks to Biden’s inflation.
And everything, from burgers to beer is getting very expensive.
Bidenflation Causes Memorial Day Expenses to Reach Record Highs
Want to fire up the grill? Before you even get to the food itself, brace yourself for 27% more expensive propane and firewood. Then, expect to pay 16% more for chicken, 14% more for pork chops, and 12% more for beef steaks. Want to garnish your burgers and add some fries on the side? Get ready to shell out 13% more for lettuce and 7% more for potatoes…
If you are traveling to see friends and family, get ready to stretch your budget further. Gas is 44% more expensive, car and truck rental is 10% more expensive, and airfare is 33% more expensive. [Source: Daily Wire]
Biden’s reckless economic policies triggered inflation at the start of last year. Despite promising it was temporary, inflation has only grown. This is largely thanks to Biden’s inability to deal with problems like the supply chain crisis and his deliberate attempts to cripple our energy section (resulting in high gas prices).
So, Americans were not able to enjoy all that the holiday weekend promised them. After busting their butts all year long (and paying more in taxes than in the last few years), Americans couldn’t enjoy such an important day as they had hoped.
They had to pay 27% more in propane and firewood if they wanted to use their grills. Food, including chicken, pork chops, and beef was more expensive by 16% or more. And, of course, traveling has become a massive burden, as gas prices continue to skyrocket.
Don’t believe anyone that blames this inflation on COVID or the lockdowns. Our economy was recovering by the end of 2020, thanks to Trump’s policies. The current inflation is entirely Biden’s fault, who refused to address major problems—or created problems of his own.
Biden’s policy advisors are left-wing progressives who have no clue how our economy works. After coming out of a devastating pandemic, they rushed to spend trillions in new money. And their lack of intelligence or leadership skills meant they could not deal with real issues like the border, vaccines, the supply chain, or anything else.
Does anyone really think this is going away anytime soon? Biden has no intentions of getting prices to go down. His administration is bowing to the radical left, globalist forces, and Big Red China.
The last people he’s thinking about are Americans.
