Taking a page out of Seinfeld’s George Costanza, Florida governor Ron DeSantis decided the easiest solution to current economic hardship is simply look at what Slow Joe is doing and then proceed to do the opposite. Considering the Regime is intentionally destroying America, that seems like a good instinct.
Doing what he can to energize the Republican base, DeSantis was speaking at a Wisconsin rally the same weekend as former president Donald Trump was in Ohio. Both states feature crucial House and Senate elections. Wisconsin’s incumbent Senator Ron Johnson is neck and neck with the Democrat challenger and Ohio’s Trump-backed J.D. Vance is looking to unseat the activist Tim Ryan.Speaking to the issue of record-high inflation, DeSantis pinpointed Biden’s reckless and limitless spending.
“[W]e’re staring down the barrel of a lot of really significant turbulence thanks to Joe Biden,” the Florida governor said. “You know, they’ve had the inflation, which has been a total disaster. They’re raising interest rates. They’re slowing down the economy. You know, you apply for a mortgage a year ago, what was it like, two point six percent, two point five? Now it’s like over six percent. That’s a massive increase. Very difficult for working people to be able to afford such a stiff increase.”
“But I’ll tell you, my rule of thumb on budget and economy is just really study what Biden’s doing and then do the opposite,” DeSantis added.
The red-hot DeSantis continued hammering this message home:
“So if you look what Biden has done, he comes into office, and what does he do? He goes on this massive spending and borrowing and printing spree, trillions and trillions of dollars. And he was warned by people that worked for Obama and worked for Bill Clinton that if you do this, you are going to spark a major inflation,” he said.
“And not only was he hell-bent on doing that, he also attacked American energy production. So you’re inflating the currency, and you’re cutting down on production. Of course, you’re going to get inflation. This was something that was very obvious and that’s had a devastating impact on people all across this country.”
In terms of inflation, DeSantis pounced on Brandon’s expensive, gaslighting boondoggle that got rammed through the House and Senate last month. Fox News writes:
DeSantis noted that inflation went up again this past month, even with gas prices falling. He predicted that energy costs will increase again this year while prices for other goods like groceries remain high.
“And what do they do to be able to give you relief from that? They pass a piece of legislation that they are calling, incredibly, the Inflation Reduction Act,” he said. “Nobody thinks it’s going to reduce inflation.”
Things are so bad that formerly reliable allies and outlets are reporting on – and blaming – Joe Biden for the economic downturn. Former Obama advisor Larry Summers could keep lasting longer and another aide, Steven Rather, was published in the New York Times saying Biden was completely wrong on his approach to tackling inflation, and was even making it worse.
