As you no doubt recall, the Biden administration and the media went through a number of talking points on inflation, at one point trying to argue that it was a good thing. Of course, well all remember when the White House said inflation was going to be “transitory.” It was just about a year ago today that Paul Krugman, who’s wrong about everything, said there was no need to worry about “transitory price blips.”
Biden economic advisor Brian Deese addressed the press Tuesday and was asked about that “transitory” inflation talking point — did it give false hope to the American people? Was it a mistake to use that phrasing?

"About a year ago, you stood up here, along with other officials, talking about inflation as 'transitory' … Was it a mistake to use that phrasing?"

An unexpected recovery period? When did that start?
It was never uncertain. They were warned Biden’s $1.9 trillion “rescue” plan would send inflation through the roof. Biden and Democrats ignored all warnings, including from Obama economists, and did it anyway. https://t.co/enuSXOrz2U

“Uncertain and unexpected recovery period” is the new Biden administration euphemism for “recession.”

It’s been four decades since we’ve seen inflation like this.

And as we just learned, President Joe Biden has a three-point plan to tackle inflation: blame Trump, push green energy, and raise taxes.
