Joe Biden’s disastrous economy will cost every American family dearly by the time 2022 is over, indeed, it’ll sap more than $5K from our pockets.
According to a new review by Bloomberg, Bidenflation is going to end up costing American families at least $433 extra a month in higher costs for gas, food, utilities, and other expenses. That’s $5,200 a year.
Bloomberg tried to make it sound better by claiming that many Americans will be able to rely on the money they saved during the recent pandemic lockdowns. But even with that the left-wing news site was forced to admit that Bidenflation will wipe out those savings (if any were even amassed in the first place).
The excess savings built up over the pandemic, and increases in wages, will cushion those costs, and allow spending to expand at a decent pace this year. But accelerated depletion of savings will increase the urgency for those staying on the sidelines to join the labor force, and the resulting increase in labor supply will likely dampen wage growth
Bloomberg also floated the fantasy that wage increases will also help alleviate the Bidenflation trap. But, again, there won’t really be any wage increases. What company is going to give wage increases when people will fear losing their job because prices for goods have soared?
Breitbart News explains:
Inflation-adjusted average hourly earnings for all employees decreased 0.8 percent from January to February, seasonally adjusted, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on March 10. Compared with a year ago, inflation-adjusted average hourly earnings have fallen 2.6 percent.
According to a University of Michigan survey of consumer sentiment, 32 percent of Americans expect their financial condition to deteriorate in 2022, likely because of inflation. Only 16 percent of Americans believe Biden’s policies will rectify the economic problems. “That will make fighting inflation harder because so much of inflation depends upon psychology and expectations,” Breitbart News reported.
Only one good thing might come from the destruction Biden has wrecked on the economy. We just might see a red wave bring hundreds of new Republicans to office in the 2022 midterms in November.
