Thank Low IQ Voters for High Grocery Prices

Who else noticed a dramatic spike in grocery prices a few months ago?

From February to March of this year, grocery prices soared 50 percent, at least according to my receipts. Perhaps where you live you noticed less of an increase. Perhaps you noticed more.

Either way, you and I now pay a heavy price.

Morons — many of whom you and I didn’t vote for — govern the United States.

In April the Government Accountability Office (GAO) said inflation contributed only a small role to the increase in prices. The agency instead blamed, among other things, COVID-19, the war in Ukraine, and animal and plant diseases.

What’s baffling is how the GAO downplayed inflation and instead tried to blame rising prices on everything but. The GAO is not the only D.C.-based institution guilty of this. Academics and bureaucrats went out of their way to downplay inflation as the thing that triggered high prices.

All this, just to salvage President Joe Biden’s reputation.

But in 2021 the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco said Biden’s $1.9 trillion spending spree forced prices to skyrocket. Last year, the House Ways and Means Committee said America’s job market was not as strong as Biden and his sycophants claimed. The country was not producing new jobs. All jobs gained were recovered jobs previously lost.

This month, Ways and Means Committee Chair Jason Smith (R-MO-08) said Biden’s policies wrecked small businesses nationwide.

“The Ways and Means Committee has gone to main streets across the country to listen to working Americans about how the Biden economy has devastated their communities,” Smith said.

“They told us how families have to take a second job to pay the bills and that small businesses are struggling to hire workers, expand their businesses, keep products on the shelf, or in the worst-case scenario, have to shut down.”

Things are so bad that one in six retirees might return to work. Exactly 55 percent of retirees who went back to work did so because they needed more money.

This, of course, was unnecessary and happened because idiots who don’t understand human nature, basic economics, or the incentive system call the shots in our nation’s capital.

The Big Bang Theory character Sheldon Cooper once said he cried because other people are stupid, and it made him sad.

With grocery prices as high as they are, I think D.C. politicians and the voters who elected them are stupid….and it makes me mad.
