It’s not looking good for the Democrats heading into the 2022 election.
But now an unlikely source may have just extinguished their last flicker of hope.
Nancy Pelosi just drove the final nail in her own coffin with this insane display.
A brand-new Wall Street Journal poll showed 50 percent of Americans listed inflation as their top issue heading into the November election.
ABC’s latest poll found 70 percent of Americans disapproved of how Joe Biden handled gas prices.
So, it should come as no surprise that Democrats scrambled to find anyone to shift the blame to for the surging inflation that took place on Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s watch and occurred largely as a result of their policies.
That’s why, at the House Democrats’ retreat in Philadelphia, Speaker Nancy Pelosi put on an embarrassing display of spin in trying to explain away inflation.
At first, Pelosi tried to claim the stalled multi-trillion-dollar socialist spending bill would lower inflation.
“One other point that we’ll make about it is that what we are doing in our legislation, what we would do in the Build Back Better – seventeen Nobel laureates in economics said that legislation does not increase inflation. It is non-inflationary because of the way it is written,” Pelosi stated.
Pelosi then falsely claimed that the government spending is lowering the national debt and decreasing inflation.
“So when we’re having this discussion, it’s important to dispel some of those who say, well it’s the government spending – no, it isn’t,” Pelosi added. “The government spending is doing the exact reverse, reducing the national debt. It is not inflationary.”
None of that is true.
The national debt soared to over $30 trillion because the government pumped trillions of dollars into the economy through so-called COVID “relief” bills.
And inflation began surging last year after Biden, Pelosi and Schumer rammed a $1.9 trillion socialist spending bill through Congress.
Pelosi then falsely claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin bore the brunt of the blame for gas prices spiking to record highs.
“We’re paying very close attention to it, but this starts with Putin because the global inflation for reasons beyond the gas price,” Pelosi added. “Global inflation is something that we have to deal with globally, but we have our responsibility to deal with it at home, and we have legislation that does just that, by increasing supply and, again, creating jobs in a way that is not adding to inflation.”
That is not true.
Gas prices rose over more than one dollar per gallon during Joe Biden’s first year in office.
Putin did not invade Ukraine until the end of February.
Gas prices rose because of a deliberate decision by Joe Biden to limit the supply of American oil and natural gas as part of the radical Green New Deal agenda.
Now Democrats are set to pay a massive political price for Biden’s blunders and Pelosi is desperate to shift the blame.
