Biden Admonished For Ignoring Economic Problems

Long before inflation reached its current point, there were warning signs and opportunities to shift gears. The Biden administration chose to reject all of this, instead downplaying the growing costs facing Americans.

Joe Biden and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen both went on record writing off inflation as “transitory.” They claimed it was nothing to worry about, arguing that Republicans sounding the alarm were just spreading misinformation.

As time went on, inflation became more apparent. Once inflation was impossible to deny or write off as transitory, Democrats blamed Russia and a number of other scapegoats.

Now, merely weeks before the midterms, inflation looks like it’ll bury Democrats and stop them from holding onto congressional power. Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) is now admonishing members of her party, including the president, for not getting a hold of inflation while they had the chance.

Slotkin on Biden’s Poor Handling of Inflation
While speaking with Fox News, the Michigan Democrat conceded that her party dropped the ball on inflation.

Slotkin also revealed that she personally was rallying for the president and other Democrats to seriously confront inflation. She told Fox News that Democrats should have begun tackling inflation last year when it would have counted most.

Later, the congresswoman said it was a “crap suggestion” for her party to dismiss inflation as transitory and unworthy of talking about.

Towards the end of the interview, Slotkin even admitted inflation isn’t a matter the current administration will be able to fix in one swoop.

Other moderate Democrats, such as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) previously warned the party about inflation. Yet, Biden and his backers didn’t heed these warnings because they thought it wouldn’t be politically advantageous.

A New Chapter For America?
If the polls are any indication of how Americans vote, Republicans will soon be in control of Congress. Unlike Democrats, the GOP isn’t going to lie about inflation or feign as though it’s no big deal.

In fact, GOP candidates across the nation have laid out comprehensive plans to tackle inflation. Some important steps involve lowering federal spending and getting the government out of people’s lives.

Not only will a GOP-led Congress be able to take on inflation, but it can also hold the line against even more bad policies the president may try forcing through the House and Senate.
