As the price of just about everything shoots up to historic highs, liberals will tell you with a straight face to “buy an electric car” or “stop eating beef”. This detachment from reality is part and parcel with the current state of the Democrat Party.
Don’t think for even a moment that these price hikes are a function of some organic shift in supply and demand. Oh no. These are artificially inflated prices on common goods and services done intentionally by the Democrat party who remain beholden to global conglomerates who seek complete corporate takeover of western economies.
Have you noticed how mom and pop shops are slowly making room for bank chains, big box stores, and restaurant franchises?
American families had a more challenging time putting food on the kitchen table in February as everyday food prices continue to surge, with no end in sight.
The overall food prices rose 7.9% compared with a year ago, data from the Department of Labor showed on Thursday. In fact, the data also showed that inflation climbed to another four-decade high in February, as the consumer price index rose 7.9% compared with a year ago.
Inflation is on the rise and with no end in sight as the Biden administration continues to spend and the Democrat-led Congress is looking to push another spending bill worth over a trillion dollars.
Home furniture prices are up 10.3% compared with the last year and have risen one percent since last month. Prices for the category of “living room, kitchen, and dining room” furniture are up an eye-popping 19.3% compared with a year ago. They actually surprisingly dropped 0.2% compared with January.
Here are some of the most striking moves in food prices.
- Ground beef: up 13.6%
- Steaks: up 16.9%
- Bacon: up 17.1%
- Pork Chops: up 13.4%
- Chicken: up 13.2%
- Fresh Fish: up 10.4%
- Fresh Whole Milk: up 12.4%
- Coffee: up 10.5 percent.
- Fresh Fruit: up 10.6%
- Lettuce: up 7.9%
- Salad Dressing: up 9.4%
- Soups: up 10%
- Baby Food: up 8.4%
- Breakfast Cereal: up 7.5%
- Bread: 7.5%
- Biscuits and Muffins: up 7.1%
- Lunch Meats: up 11%
Eating out is not really a better option. Fast food prices are up 6.8%, and full-service restaurant prices are up 7.5%. Even vending machine prices are up 5.9%.
So while Americans struggle to feed their families, late night TV liberals – and even the Vice President – will laugh directly in your face, tell you to spend thousands on an electric vehicle, demand you change your diet, all to protect the liberal bottom line.
This is what’s on the ballot in 2022 and 2024.
