In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon:
Jean-Pierre said on CNN that Americans must understand the position President Biden was in when he took office and asserted that the U.S. economy is “bouncing back.” She added that the administration believes they are in a “good position” to take on inflation.
“We’ve got to remember when thinking about gas prices and food this is coming from Putin’s war against Ukraine,” Jean-Pierre caveated. “The moment that Putin amassed forces on the border of Ukraine, we saw from then until now, we have seen a $2 increase per gallon on gas.”
Nothing is Joe’s fault. It is all the fault of the mean tweets.
She said that because of the American Rescue Plan we are all in a place where we can “take on” inflation.
I’m sorry, I’ve not seen my income increase to match inflation. I’ve not seen my wife’s salary increase.
What I’ve seen is that the gap between income and expenses is getting very very thin and soon will be near zero. We are already making decisions on which of two items we purchase. Do we feed the vehicles or do we feed the family. Fortunately for us we have food. It is the costs of everything else that scares me.
