More Americans than ever are having to go without thanks to Joe Biden’s failed economy and the massive Bidenflation he is forcing on us all.
A new report by Tipp Insights finds that one in five Americans are either skipping meals or relying more heavily on neighborhood food banks because the cost of food has risen far faster than their incomes and as Americans are stuck paying 15 percent more for their food bills than last year.
The poll asked Americans how they were dealing with the higher food costs. While 88% of the survey respondents replied they were making changes, 10% said they had not made changes to their food budgets.
Given an option to choose all that applied, the survey found –
- 50% Buying store brands more often
- 47% Cutting down on high-ticket items (i.e., meats)
- 36% Shopping at bargain stores
- 34% Eating less (portion sizes)
- 23% Skipping meals
- 21% Go to food banks to supplement groceries
- 20% Applied and got federal or state assistance such as SNAP/WIC
- 17% Growing my vegetables
- 2% Other
While most are buying store brands and hunting for bargains, the percentage of people cutting down on food and skipping entire meals is worrisome. Lack of adequate food for prolonged periods could lead to malnutrition and compromised immunity. Given that the Coronavirus is still lurking in our midst, people with low immunity will be highly susceptible to infection.
Regular Americans are suffering in this country thanks to Joe Biden and the Democrats.
But to the left, that is a feature of the policies, not a bug.Commentary
