Inflation is on the rise and unfortunately, it’s not going away anytime soon.
A large reason for why that’s the case is because Congress is continuing to spend our tax dollars like drunken sailors.
In fact, Nancy Pelosi recently proved how little she cares about Americans with this latest vote.
Make no mistake about it, inflation is hurting American families across the country.
Congress’ own Joint Economic Committee recently released a report that shows that inflation is costing American families at least an extra three hundred and eighty-five dollars a month!
And it’s gotten so bad, that the Federal Reserve was recently compelled to raise interest rates to attempt to combat it.
Usually, during tough economic times, Americans find solace by telling themselves things like, “at least we’re all in this together” or “we’re Americans, we can get through anything.”
And to a certain extent, that’s true.
But nothing will infuriate the public more when they find out that they’re being taken advantage of by our elected officials.
That’s what makes this latest display of tone-deafness by Congress particularly aggravating.
Congress knows that WE THE PEOPLE are hurting and instead of trying to help they passed a massive spending bill, which will inevitably make our inflation pains go from bad to worse.
Now, it would be one thing if this bill was designed to tackle even one of the crises caused by Joe Biden.
But it’s not!
This bill was loaded with secret goodies for Members of Congress and even Joe Biden.
Congress gave Joe Biden a million dollars to spend for “unanticipated needs.”
Whether Joe will be able to use that to pay off some of his son, Hunter Biden’s, legal bills remains to be seen.
But what is crystal clear is that Congress gave themselves a twenty-one percent increase to their own congressional office allowances, an increase of $134.4 million dollars from last year.
RollCall reports, “the $5.9 billion fiscal 2022 Legislative Branch funding portion would substantially boost the office budgets of House members” and “would provide $774.4 million for the Members Representational Allowance, known as the MRA, which funds the House office budgets for lawmakers, including staffer salaries.”
Have they no shame?
Americans are paying historically high gas prices, seeing food prices skyrocket, and having to pay more money to heat their homes or keep the lights on and the people we’ve elected to solve these problems don’t seem to care.
And that’s exactly the problem, Congress doesn’t care, the Biden-Harris Administration doesn’t care, and the president doesn’t care.
How else could one explain this politically stupid pay raise or $1 million slush fund for Joe Biden?
But hopefully, every single member of Congress learns their lesson at the ballot box in November, if not sooner.
