Bad Math: Buttigieg Claims Massive Dem Spending Bill Will Reduce Inflation

Late Friday night, 13 RINOs joined Democrats to pass Biden’s destructive $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.

Earlier that day, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg went on MSNBC  to bizarrely claim that the passing of Biden’s agenda would reduce inflation.

Breitbart reported:

Friday on MSNBC’s “Stephanie Ruhle Reports,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg claimed passing President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda was “important” in reducing the rising inflation.

According to Buttigieg, “putting more money in people’s pockets” can help Americans pay for things like childcare and schooling as oil prices are on the rise.

“[T] here’s a technical issue over whether it’s considered structural or whether it’s considered temporary, but when it’s hitting your grocery bill, that’s not temporary. That’s just your life. That’s your budget,” Buttigieg outlined. “And Americans are feeling that in a lot of different ways.”

“It’s one of the reasons why it’s so important to move this legislation through,” he added.


A Morning Consult/Politico poll found that 62% of Americans hold Biden responsible for the rising inflation.

The New York Post reported:

Sixty-two percent of Americans said President Biden is somewhat or very responsible for increasing inflation — the same number who believe the country is on the wrong track, according to a new poll released Wednesday.

Forty percent said Biden’s policies are very responsible and 22 percent said they are somewhat responsible for inflation, which has hit its highest rate in 13 years, a Morning Consult/Politico poll found.

Another 18 percent believe the administration’s policies are not too responsible, and 10 percent said they aren’t responsible at all.​

Asked if the country is on the right track, 38 percent agreed, while 62 percent believe it’s on the wrong track. ​
