Biden and the Democrats claim that spending another two or three trillion dollars on the “Build Back Better” bill (after having dropped $1.2 trillion on the infrastructure bill) would help bring curb rising inflation that has hit consumers hard. Does anybody actually believe that?
Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis seems to know that times are getting tougher, and here’s their suggestion for how to make your Thanksgiving cheaper and healthier:
From the FRED Blog: A Thanksgiving dinner serving of poultry costs $1.42. A soybean-based dinner serving with the same amount of calories costs 66 cents and provides almost twice as much protein https://t.co/qmyjwZd7aU pic.twitter.com/pHv3ZR9o6u

Really? We’ve gone from “Biden saved you 16 cents on your July 4th barbecue” to “here’s why tofurkey is a great option in these financially trying times.”
Y’all really tweeted this. This is an actual tweet.

Maybe that’ll be their meal recommendation for Christmas.
And for Christmas you can have earth worms and cockroaches https://t.co/wTEuq09kpX

If Biden and the Dems are given much more time in control of things the Fed will be tweeting directions to local soup kitchens for holiday meals.
Do these people literally think we want a soybean dinner instead of a turkey? Wow… good try.
