Joe Biden is finally putting his foot down on the inflation crisis
Does that translate into doing something meaningful that will actually alleviate the financial burden placed on average Americans as a result of his fiscal policies?
It means Biden is raging behind the scenes at his administration officials who didn’t do more to solve the problem before American voters began to catch on.
Biden’ss anger is by no means directed at himself, the man solely responsible for America’s economic downturn — oh, no. There’s virtually zero introspection on the part of Biden who’s worked tirelessly for over a year to guarantee a reduced cost of living for average Americans.
Recent economic data says Bidenflation will cost the average American household an extra $5,200 in 2022, or about $433 per month. This has caused immense political turmoil for Biden and the Democrats as they struggle to gain support from a growing majority of voters.
Somehow, according to Biden, this is the fault of his staffers and by no means a result of his own fiscal or energy policies.
“Biden has privately raged at top White House officials over the administration’s handling of inflation, expressing frustration over the past several months that aides were not doing enough to confront the problem directly,” the report claimed.
Out of ideas, the White House decided to launch a public relations blast they believe will quell the unrest associated with their policies. All they can do at this point is mitigate the losses in November’s primary. This PR blitz is expected to do just that.
The main component of their clean-up act is what we call ‘controlled transparency’.
This involves certain administration officials admitting their faults in the hopes they can spin or manipulate the messaging to soften the blow for American voters.
For example, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen appeared on CNN on Thursday to directly admit her wrongdoing. She previously waved off inflation concerns before giving her stamp of approval for Congress to spend trillions as inflation crept up.
She infamous repeated White House talking points, calling inflation “transitory” only later to change her tune.
“I don’t understand my job.”
She’s really opening herself up to mansplaining (man explaining for the women who don’t understand the term) setting her gender back literally tens of minutes.

Also on Thursday, Biden admitted to knowing nothing about the looming baby formula crisis until April — months after the Abbott Nutrition facility shuddered. Top baby formula manufacturers in fact warned Biden of a likely shortage and he did nothing anyway.
This PR stunt is unlike to change the minds of Americans, however.
A CBS poll late last month revealed that 69% of Americans consider Biden’s economy to be “bad” — a whopping six-point increase from April, and a 23-point increase from this time last year.
