According to Joe Biden, food prices are coming down. Except, they aren’t actually.
The most recent inflation report showed that prices at grocery stores went up in January.
Biden knows he can just say things like this and the media will let him get away with it.
Breitbart News reports:
Joe Biden Falsely Claims Food Prices Are ‘Continuing to Come Down’
President Joe Biden falsely claimed food prices are coming down after Tuesday’s inflation report revealed prices at the grocery store actually increased in January.
Delivering a Tuesday afternoon keynote address at the National Association of Counties, Biden falsely claimed inflation, including food prices, is coming down.
“Today’s report on inflation shows the good is that inflation in America is continuing to come down,” Biden claimed. “Food prices at the grocery store are coming down.”
But according to the consumer price index report released Tuesday morning, the price of food at home jumped 0.5 percent compared with December. Over the past 12 months, grocery prices have gone up 10.1 percent, the numbers reflecting the month of January show.
Many common grocery items dramatically increased in price, including eggs prices up 70 percent, cereals up 15.6 percent, and coffee up 12.6 percent.
Biden is not living in reality.
Biden: Food prices are coming down.
Reality: Grocery prices are up 11.8% from last year.

Food prices are up nearly 12% over the past year.
That's Joe Biden's legacy.

Biden said his economic plan is working:
1) inflation went up to 6.4%
2) food prices went 11.4%
3) Joe Biden has not reduced the deficit. His first two years were 2 of the 4 highest deficits in HISTORY
ATTENTION: Joe Biden is a pathological LIAR
