Inflation is so bad and so present in everyday Americans‚Äô lives that the White House can‚Äôt avoid talking about it. Just a couple of weeks ago, President Joe Biden said no one would trade this Thanksgiving for last year‚Äôs, even ‚Äúas bad as things are.‚ÄĚ A week later he was asking Americans if they ever thought they‚Äôd be paying this much for gas. Of course, the solution to reduce inflation is to pass Biden‚Äôs Build Back Better agenda, which the Congressional Budget Office is likely to determine does not cost zero dollars.
Sen. Rick Scott said ‚Äúthis is a gold mine for us,‚ÄĚ likely referring to the 2022 midterms and how voters are going to vote against the people who brought them this crappy economy. Press Secretary Jen Psaki took it to mean that Republicans are rooting for inflation.
Q: Why, when Americans are seeing higher prices, are Republicans united against a bill to lower core costs on prescription drugs, health care, child care, and elder care?
A: They‚Äôre rooting for inflation. https://t.co/Dl0JRB5WXv

This is, of course, a lie. https://t.co/noCgncJVUb

You just stole $3 trillion from American taxpayers so Buttigieg can call bridges racist.
I think we know who loves inflation. https://t.co/jUY6XLqtYd

Pointing out to the American people that your disastrous policies caused inflation, which is damaging to your party, is not "rooting for inflation." https://t.co/kX8NFdtzIg

Wait, I thought the economy was roaring and jobs were being created and things were great. Did I miss a memo? https://t.co/PZWlkFKwrp

Prescriptions and health care?
What was that Obamacare thing you guys passed under the cloak of night?

Step 1: Deny there is inflation
Step 2: Say inflation isn't that bad
Step 3: Blame republicans for inflation when Dems control the House, the Senate, and the White House https://t.co/T8IibWtTxU

The liberal media is so in the tank for Biden that MSNBC ran a piece on how inflation was a good thing.
1. There won‚Äôt be inflation.
2. Inflation is transitory.
3. Inflation was unavoidable.
4. Inflation is actually good!
5. Inflation is the Republicans‚Äô fault!
This is already the 5th attempt at a narrative, after each one has blown up in their faces. https://t.co/XmU6dk13eV

The scary thing about Psaki is she writes her own tweets; this is her hot take.
Jen Psaki says inflation will ‚Äėsubstantially decelerate next year,‚Äô so GOP needs to stop using it as ‚Äėa political cudgel‚Äô and scaring Americans https://t.co/mjCyvDabdI
