Biden, Dems Oversee Highest Food Inflation Since Jimmy Carter

Roughly 15 months after Democrats took complete control over the lawmaking and policymaking apparatuses of government, Americans are increasingly feeling the pressure financially, and it keeps getting worse.

In fact, Americans are paying the most now for food since the waning days of President Jimmy Carter’s administration.

According to new government figures, food prices rose last month by 11.9 percent, the steepest inflationary rate since 1979.

Meanwhile, real wages have declined, a reversal from when former President Trump presided over low inflation and rising wages.

According to Bloomberg:


Airfares 37.8% Nov. 1980

Energy 34.6% Sept. 2005

Delivery Services 16.4% June 2010

Vehicle parts 15.3% Record

Food at home 11.9% April 1979

Movies, theaters, concerts 6.4% May 2003

Rent of primary residence 5.2% Feb. 1987

Jacki Kotkiewicz, director of policy research for the GOP said:

Inflation just hit a NEW 40-year high. 

Overall CPI: +8.6% since last year

Gas: +48.7% 

Fuel Oil: +106.7%

Meat, Poultry, & Fish: +13.1%

Milk: +15.9%
