Joe Biden's policies since he took office have allowed inflation to surge in the United States, with gasoline prices up by more than a dollar a gallon across wide regions, food more costly and even consumer items demanding higher prices because of those increases in transportation costs.

Now a new poll from Gallup confirms what consumers already know all too well: it's causing hardship for them.

The poll revealed that Biden's inflation is causing "hardship" for nearly half of the nation's population – 45% to be exact.

And it hits hardest at those who can least afford it, the poll reveals.

Seventy-one percent of households with income of less than $40,000 are suffering hardship as well as 47% of those households with income from $40,000 to $99,999.

Lucky for us, according to some pundits on the lame stream pay roll, we can afford it and need to quit whining. Uh, okay. If I were employed by one of the lames and was getting $500K/yr I'd probably be just fine. Butt, a lot of us are fixed income and sure as hell haven't notice a COLA in my retirement check. Still waiting on my 2022 letter from SS. That COLA should cover all the extras right? LGB!

Don’t need the losers at Glubglub to tell us times are tough. They probably don’t buy their own groceries or they would have seen the stupidity of polling something a complete moron could identify.

Real income growth is now negative. Inflation is a tax on everyone, including the poor and middle class.

I wonder if there are still any people in Zimbabwe or Venezuela (besides the ruling class) who thinks they are better off now having "more" money?

Inflation is a tax. The Democrats are counting on getting away with blaming “greedy business that are raising prices.”

The Democrats are counting on the people who live on all the “free” stuff, whether they can vote legally or not.

Biden is now speaking. I noticed they have modified his voice to be deeper - more gravitas.

So the demonrats and bushie/Lincoln project type reugnicans are now starting to blame... Trump, because his recover from covid heated the economy up too much. Yeah...riiiiight. Nothing to do with the idiot Fed gov Powell who continues to PRINT money for loan to the demonrats and the same- money we CANNOT every repay from taxes.

It’s all “FREE” so says the imbecile demented JoeBama and his lackeys. completely insane, and... intentional.

I always reverse headlines for perspective.

“Gallup reveals Bidenflation causing hardship for nearly half of Americans”

Gallup reveals Bidenflation not causing hardship for over half of Americans.

They probably don’t buy their own groceries

**************

None of the elites do. Can you imagine seeing them push a cart up and down the isles and standing in line to check out? No, they have people do their shopping chores and errands for them.

But on the other hand....although the stimulus payments may be responsible to some extent have helped make the pain more affordable.

Inflation is a tax on everyone

**************

True but the real impact is twofold: (1) inflation eroding the value of your money and (2) paying taxes on the money that’s left. Its a double whammy.
