Pelosi’s Latest Remarks on Economy Show Just How Much Contempt She Has for Americans
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday with host Margaret Brennan. I think it’s safe to say, it didn’t go well. Brennan started by asking her about the CBS estimates that the Republicans were going to take the House – with 224 seats – in the midterms. “How do you shift the momentum?” Brennan queried. Pelosi couldn’t even deal with that question and immediately deflected.
I think the CBS estimates are conservative, given the momentum we’re seeing. But Pelosi didn’t want to deal with the reality of losing.
Pelosi then gave a take that was just clueless when it comes to inflation. She didn’t want to talk about inflation either: she said flat-out she wanted to change the subject.
“When I hear people talk about inflation, as I heard him there, we have to change that subject,” Pelosi stated. “Inflation is a global phenomenon- phenomenon. The EU, the European Union, the UK, the British, have higher inflation rate than we do here. It’s not- the fight is not about inflation. It’s about the cost of living.”
In other words, how dare you stupid Americans be concerned about inflation? It’s not our fault! “It’s about the cost of living”? Does she get that it is inflation that has driven the cost of living up for all of us?
That’s directly attributable to the overspending of Biden and the Democrats, as House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn admitted the other day, saying, “All of us knew this would be the case when we put in place this recovery program. Anytime you put more money into the economy, prices tend to rise.” Of course, she wants to change that subject — because it’s directly their fault. They don’t care about how much they have hurt us with their actions or doing anything to resolve the problems that got us here.
They can deflect, but this is reality:
Inflation was at 1.4 percent when Joe Biden came in, then he made everything worse, not only with spending but his attack on our energy industry from day one.
They’ve been “changing the subject” and claiming inflation is transitory for a year; that’s why it’s still raging.
Brennan brought up what Clyburn said to Pelosi and asked whether their excessive spending in legislation sparked inflation. Pelosi’s answer was beyond delusional.
Pelosi said she had absolutely no regrets for what she had done–and how much she’s hurt the country. She claimed the spending was “necessary” for people to survive. Then she claimed that when you “reduce unemployment, it’s inflationary.”
