President Joe Biden agreed that inflation is a real problem to American's on Wednesday, "Inflation hurts American pocketbooks, and reversing this trend is a top priority for me," he said in a statement.
While Biden addresses the people, assuring he understands the harm inflation is causing, there is doubt seen in the polls. ABC reports that the polls are against President Joe Biden, and 70% of respondents admitted to voting against Joe Biden due to the bad shape of the economy.
Yet, Biden blames inflation on the American people, on ordering online, and further impacting the supply chain problem. There is no real plan to effect change and fix the inflation crisis beyond passing blame and the so-called "Build Back Better" plan.
MSNBC's Claire McCaskill (D-MO) argues that Biden has done a great job with the economy, claiming that things would be fine if gas prices and inflation only went down.
But that's the problem, right? Gas prices and inflation are not going down. On the contrary, they are increasing exponentially, higher now than in the last 30 years.
McCaskill continues to argue that inflation will fall once the Build Back Better bill goes into effect. "And if they execute the infrastructure bill competently, that turns some dirt, get some stuff built, cut some ribbons on some highways and bridges and all of those things, people will feel that in their communities…."
The main problem with this is, it can take over three years to build one road, and even before the building can start, it can take years to plan. So how is this bill going to stop inflation next month? What is the plan for the short term to help the American people?
The inability of the Biden Administration to answer these questions to the average American is why the polls continue to drop. The American people are tired of Biden's lack of response to real-life, current issues harming the American people.
