We are NOT experiencing inflation.
Inflation is where the economy is booming so much, that people have so much extra money that they are willing to pay more for things and create shortages out of prosperity.
That is not what we have.
Instead what we have is where we shut down the economy so much that the government had to print fake money and hand it out, in order to prevent a total economic collapse. So now money is just worth much less, and that made prices rise.
The shortages we have now are not from prosperity, but poverty.
Companies are going under and there is less production.
When prices go up because of devaluation of currency, that is not inflation.
That is actually a recession, and you can't get out of that by increasing interest rates.
Increasing interest rates will not reduce prices, but greatly increase them.

Another knucklehead who only cares about sniping at Biden to the detriment of all else. I don't think there are more than a handful of people on the planet who can lay out precisely what the cause of this inflationary period is or any other inflationary period for that matter. Happens under Dems and GOPers. The only one in recent memory that I could take an honest stab at is the 08 near collapse. 2 wars on the credit card and banks lending to anyone and everyone. And even if I'm right, those are not the only causes for sure. And to stop even discussing alt energies every time recession and/or inflation rears its ugly head is to figuratively say fuck the environment, the Global warming, and the beginnings of an opportunity to break away from carbon energies which could lower costs to every American eventually and maybe have a slowing effect on the heating of the planet. There IS a solution somewhere in the gap between those two approaches but to keep rewinding is to never solve either of the major scourges that are hurting everybody.
Huh? Xiden created chaos, ships floating in the bays looking to unload and, nope. Mandates caused this crazy shit! I get it, you’re out of touch

Democrats have demonstrated for the last 6 years the only plan they have, besides of how to f* up the country, is 'Get Trump'.

They have the House, the Senate, and the WH. What have they done with it?

1. F* the country up
2. 6 Jan Kabuki Theater
3. Incite another assassination attempt
4. Threaten USSC Justices again
5. Call for intimidation of and violence against USSC Justices
6. Incite left wing domestic terrorist bombings and rebellion
7. Openly undermine the govt / USSC
8. Openly call for Insurrection
9. Make excuses / blame others
10. Accuse others of having no plan to fix their f*-up
Wow! We did all of that? Sounds like we've been busy. Of course you guys couldn't help and that's understandable because you've had your hands full corrupting Government and the Supreme Court. And then, of course there's that lttle other thingy. Worshiping the guy who wants to destroy democracy and rule as a despot. Those things can get in the way of progress. Oh shit! I forgot. You don't like that either.

I see you failed to mention most of the red states are trying like heck to redistrict and do other measures to ensure that those who do make it to the polls are whiter than rice. Again, do your research. Stop cutting and pasting long enough to get to the heart of the matter.
Explain in detail how redistricting only lets whites vote, Simp.

Yes prices went up.
Why that happened and what else should have been done is another thread.
The point is we should NOT be increasing interest rates.
Commerce is already depressed, and increased interest rates will depress commerce even more.

The point is prices going up can be from over buying or scarcity.
If it is from over buying, you tighten money by increasing interest rates.
But it is from scarcity, you need to lower interest rates in order to increase production.

38 'Pages' and no libtard, snowflake, or Democrat will voice aloud what the media has been reporting Democrats are whispering prior to the mid-terms:

'Dump Biden'

Of course that's like ventriliquist Jeff Dunham blaming his puppet Walter for being what's wrong with the act...

The Republicans aren't in charge, IM. Of course they wouldn't have a plan now as they can't enact it, but after Trump reascends the throne in 2025, they certainly will. Just like they did during the first Trump Administration.
The republicns have no plan. Being in the minority doesn't stop them from having ideas.

Cut and paste the part that shows only whites can vote after Redistricting, Simp. That was your claim.
Really? Read it again. Never said that. You are slipping more and more. Pitiful

No, that's not a plan. Look flacaltenn, your party has fucked up the economy in nearly every presidency they have had since Reagan. They have paid off their base with tax cuts that didn't trickle down, set record deficits multiple times, and almost sent us into a depression. So putting republicans in charge of an economy is like putting an alcoholic in charge of a liquor store. Your ideas are never right, which is why you have to enact voter suppression and stack courts with nutcase judges. The majority of the nation opposes the republican agenda and the let's go Brandon propaganda is getting old. Your party has no plan to work with inflation because they know it's a worldwide problem that has nothing to do with Bidens or democratic policies. But they tell you radicalized sheep anything and you repeat it.
And who fixed the mess the last time and jump started the economy? Who ended stagflation, uncontrolled inflation, ushered in the largest economic boom, and set the stage for the largest technology boom and creation of jobs and prosperity seen in decades?

The very, mere fact that a snowflake would create a thread on USMB begging Conservatives to come up with a plan to fix the horrific economy, BIDEN'S economy, 1 and 1/2 years into his Presidency, while the Democrats control the House, the Senate, & the WH just SCREAMS out a complete lack of confidence in his Democrat masters to be able to come up with a plan of their own and be able to fix it.

If it wasn't so pathetic it would be funny....!

Oh, who am I kidding?! That's funny as hell

:p

Your lies are too easy to expose, Simp.
Redistricting and other measures.

See? Don't stop when you just think you know something. This is what I'm concerned about with your reading comprehension.
