Biden Economic Chaos Looks to Tank Thanksgiving

While Joe Biden’s inability to get the American economy under control is ostensibly failing, he is also reaching a critical point in the year, after which the chances of bringing us back from the brink decrease exponentially.

I’m speaking, of course, of the all-important consumer holiday season – the big fiscal bailout that usually occurs between Halloween and New Year’s Day.

But this year, as grocery prices continue to soar, there are fears that the relief may be subdued, beginning with turkey day.

That turkey you’re planning for the big family get-together is going to give you a nasty peck on the pocketbook. So will the flour for the gravy and the butter for the rolls.

The latest government report on consumer prices, released Thursday, showed poultry prices are up a whopping 17% from a year ago. Flour is up 24%. Butter and margarine are up 32%.

The pain did not stop with the traditional holiday menu. Almost across the board, inflation showed few signs of slacking. And in areas central to most consumers’ everyday lives, prices are rising at faster rates than many Americans have seen in their lifetimes.

And that wasn’t all:

Moreover, people may be reluctant to travel over the holidays as gas prices, after falling from more than $5 a gallon nationally in June, have been creeping higher and are now back to nearly $4. In California, regular gas on Thursday averaged a whopping $6.20 a gallon.

If Biden’s economy doesn’t begin to correct before the holidays arrive, Americans could be in for a rather somber 2023.
