Inflation has now jumped to the historic high of 9.1 percent. All of this has happened on Biden’s watch and can be attributed directly to his policies.
But some Democrats just can’t admit the truth. It can’t be Biden’s fault. It can’t be the fault of their bad ideas.
Enter Elizabeth Warren, who is a fountain of excuses. Everything is to blame, except Joe Biden.

Elizabeth Warren Blames 40 Year High Inflation on Putin, Coronavirus, and ‘Corporate Monopolies’
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) attempted to deflect any responsibility for Wednesday’s devastating inflation report, blaming the over 40-year high on Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as supply chain issues connected to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and “corporate monopolies” rather than poor economic policies embraced by Democrats, who have total control in Washington, DC.
“An energy shock from Putin’s war, supply chains still reeling from a pandemic, and corporate monopolies raising prices are all driving inflation,” the far-left Democrat said following the report that saw the annual inflation rate rising to 9.1 percent.
“I’m deeply concerned that the Fed is ill-equipped to respond and rate hikes could cause a recession. Congress needs to step up, too,” Warren continued, urging Congress to take action by “making billionaire corporations pay a minimum in taxes, invest in affordable child care, and empower Medicare to negotiate lower prescription drug prices.”
“We must use every tool to lower costs for working families,” she said, failing to mention that Democrats have complete control in Washington, DC. She also made no mention of the Biden administration’s dismantling of American energy independence or bad fiscal policy — borrowing and printing exorbitant amounts of money:
It’s amazing that there are people who take this woman seriously.
Congress can fight inflation by making billionaire corporations pay a minimum in taxes, invest in affordable child care, and empower Medicare to negotiate lower prescription drug prices.
We must use every tool to lower costs for working families.

Democrats simply refuse to take responsibility for their policies.
They are going to pay a price for it in November.
