(Republican Party News) – This country would be beyond saving right now if it weren’t for Democratic Senator Joe Manchin (WV). Manchin has been standing the gap, preventing the total and complete takeover of America by the radical left.
He’s not buying what the Biden regime is selling and he made that very clear Tuesday in a scathing statement. He did not mince words in his rejection of the regime’s attempts to pass the buck for skyrocketing inflation that’s crushing the middle-class.
“Let me be clear, inflation is a tax, and today’s historic inflation data tells another chilling story about how these taxes on Americans are completely out of control,” Manchin said.
Manchin directly spoke to the Biden regime and blamed them for totally failing to come up with solutions to the problem, instead of trying to find someone else to blame.
“When will this end? It is a disservice to the American people to act as if inflation is a new phenomenon. The Federal Reserve and the Administration failed to act fast enough, and today’s data is a snapshot in time of the consequences being felt across the country.”
The regime has made a habit of blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin for all manner of problems here at home including gas prices and inflation. Apparently, Biden and his administration actually think Americans are too stupid to have noticed that these issues were spiraling out of control long before Putin ever moved on Ukraine.
“Instead of acting boldly, our elected leaders and the Federal Reserve continue to respond with half-measures and rhetorical failures, searching for where to lay the blame. The American people deserve the truth about why record inflation is happening and what must be done to control it,” Manchin said.
Manchin suggested the solution to skyrocketing prices of food and gasoline is for the federal government to adopt a comprehensive “all of the above” energy policy. He also suggested the Federal Reserve raise interest rates.
“Getting inflation under control will require more aggressive action by a Federal Reserve that waited too long to act.”
“It demands the Administration and Congress, Democrats and Republicans alike, support an all-the-above energy policy because that is the only way to bring down the high price of gas and energy while attacking climate change.”
Manchin has been an outspoken critic of Biden’s historic COVID stimulus spending and has blamed that as one of the forces behind the crippling inflation.
Meanwhile, White House officials and Biden himself are busy trying to blame anyone and everyone for the unprecedented inflation and gas prices, primarily Putin.
It’s downright shameful that this regime actually thinks Americans are too stupid to realize they are the sole cause of every single crisis facing the US right now.

The Biden Admin is calling inflation the "Putin Price Hike."

Biden is blaming inflation on Putin's invasion of Ukraine. Did Putin invade Ukraine at the beginning of 2021? My memory is a little foggy pic.twitter.com/V5gtA9ke3G

Inflation isn’t just Food and Energy (as bad as those prices are) — it’s also Rents.
Shelter prices soar — and Putin has zero to do with these rocketing rates.

“Putin’s Price Hike” is just another lie by the Biden administration.

You can’t just keep printing infinite money and handing it to your rich friends at Blackrock without getting massive inflation. Thank you for attending my Ted Talk.

Most worrying thing in the CPI report: Services excluding energy services up 0.6%, and has accelerated each of the last three months. Even if durable goods and energy prices stabilize, that suggests real broadening of underlying inflation.

Inflation is more than a story of gas prices…
Groceries +10% –> biggest spike since 1981
Meat/poultry/fish +13.8% ->biggest since 1979
New cars 12.6%->biggest ever
Electricity +11.1% -> biggest since '06
Home furnishing 10.8% ->biggest ever
Rent 5.1% ->largest since 1991

Can you explain how the president of Russia, not even in the top 25 US trade partners, could be responsible for inflation?

The left is desperate for us to believe that Putin is bad and the cause for all of our domestic woes. A White House economic adviser even went as far as to accuse Sen. Rick Scott of Florida of being “fully in lockstep” with Putin for speaking out against Biden’s abysmal job performance.
It’s only a matter of time before the Democrats turn on Sen. Manchin and call him a Russian operative too.
Make no mistake about it. The regime is trying to destroy America and they’re doing a spectacular job of it.
