How high? Inflation could cost Dems the mid-terms

By Jordan Boyd, The Federalist

Inflation jumped 7.5 percent last month compared to last January in a new almost 40-year high. This increase in the consumer price index marks the fastest year-over-year rise since 1982.

Despite promises from President Joe Biden and economic “experts” that inflation would be short-lived, it is steadily increasing (much like border apprehension numbers). In November, inflation reached the highest it had been for that month in 40 years. Similar to January, December 2021 inflation surged 7 percent to the highest year-over-year level since 1982.

These new inflation highs are problematic not only for Americans who have suffered economic instability and rising prices due to government-forced interruptions for nearly two years now but also for an already unpopular Biden and vulnerable Democrats.

As the 2022 midterms approach, Americans are seeking change. A recent CBS poll found that at least 40 percent of Americans said they were “nervous” about the future of the country. Approximately two-thirds of American voters believe the country is on the wrong track.

Even 48 percent of independent voters, whom Biden and Democrats desperately need to maintain a majority in the House and Senate, indicated they would prefer a Republican-controlled Congress over a Democrat one, with only 39 percent saying they would prefer Democrats in control.

Still struggling with rising gas prices, bare shelves, and an ongoing supply-chain crisis, voters agree that economic conditions rank high on their list of concerns.

The Biden administration has repeatedly dismissed inflation as a key problem. This hasn’t sat well with a majority of Americans, who are unhappy with how Biden is using his time in the White House.

    We can only hope that there are enough conservatives around that listen to “real” news and vote to reset our great nation. Biden isn’t president because he doesn’t even where is at. Those running the country need to go. We need to show Soros that we know what is going on and not let him turn this country socialist
