Posted on 12/15/2021 1:22:50 PM PST by Jacquerie
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki blamed corporate greed on Tuesday when asked about the cause of soaring meat prices in the United States.
The price index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs has swelled 12.8% over the past year. For certain products, the increase is even more pronounced. The price of beef has soared in price 20.9% since December 2020, according to Department of Labor data.
Psaki passed the blame onto “meat conglomerates” that are taking advantage of the pandemic to gouge consumers at the grocery aisle.
Psaki’s answer echoed arguments put forward by Brian Deese, director of the White House National Economic Council, in a blog post last week. After the latest Labor Department data was released, the White House published an article by Deese blaming meat packers for the skyrocketing prices.

They’re just makin’ it up as they go along...
Whom does she blame for the soaring price of government?
Leftist regressives everywhere are envious of “Big Meat.”
Trump, of course
Could it that a lot of pork is being shipped to China that might be impacting pork belly prices?
Barry sure does like Big Mike’s Big Meat
Hey Psaki I got your “Big Meat” right here!
So says the Spokesidiot who never worked in agriculture a day in her life.

So shoveling manure in DC for years doesn’t count?
The only thing of substance that they make....
No one in the entire world is more greedy that a two-bit lying press secretary.
You know... I have to wonder why these beef prices have gone where they have... I have been shopping at a little local Mexican grocery store for the past year or so and they had T-Bones on sale regularly for $3.99/# for the past couple of years and this week they are on sale for $4.49/# when Kroger and Safeway are regularly charging $6-8 a pound on steak that is not nearly as good as what I have been getting.
She wishes she had some BIG MEAT
And big government should know since they’re the greediest and most corrupt of them all.
Everybody knows it’s another government lie.
I figured her more as a pescatarian
