Yes and they also change the rules like demanding ID's, Asking personal questions, restricting voting hours, trimming the number of poll stations, positioning them in hard to get to places. etc etc. Discouraging mail in and absentee ballots etc. Don't even try to pretend that this isn't also going on. They (GOP) understand clearly that the more that blacks get an easy road to voting, the more votes for the democrats. If you tell me that's not true then you are being dismissive of the obvious. Never miss a chance to shit on Biden. You are smarter than to think these are circumstances of his choice. It happens to both parties and the elements that bring it about are largely out of a President's reach and influence. Right now it is Corporate gouging.

ALSO -- not the topic of THIS thread. And no possible connection to inflation is there?

Oh! Check the history. Biden has a long way to go to reach 7.8 trillion and much of the Biden spending is trying to soften the blow of unemployment and Covid mismanagement. You GOPers care SO DAMN MUCH about spending but only when it's democrat spending.
Biden signed $2 trillion in spending almost the day he ascended the throne.

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.
Feel free to bring these “other measures” that only allow whites to vote.

Your “redistricting” lie has already been exposed, Simp.

The $2 trillion is more like $5 trillion if you did honest accounting on the bill.

We read and hear all the disinformed talking crazy about Biden, but they have no plan to stop inflation. If they had one, they would have presented it to congress. Because if they had one and it worked, they would most certainly assure themselves the majority. Instead it's been about obstruction and the idiocy of Big Money Manchin and Corporate Slave Sinema.

I say they have no plan because spending by trump contributed to the inflation.

Facts First: While some economists say the stimulus packages passed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic are having an impact on inflation, it's misleading to suggest that's the only explanation for the recent rise in inflation. Blaming it exclusively on Democratic spending proposals misrepresents what's actually been passed, and ignores the trillions of dollars in spending passed last year supported by Republicans and signed by then-President Donald Trump which economists say have also contributed to inflation.

Last year, Congress passed two bills totaling around $3 trillion in Covid relief spending -- the $2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act passed in March 2020, and the $900 billion pandemic relief bill passed in December 2020. Both were signed by Trump and supported by Republicans.


And Rick Scotts tax increase for all is not the answer. So the Republican plan is to get the majority and start bogus investigations on Hunter Biden and attempt to impeach Biden, then Harris. If they appoint trump to speaker, understand that is the first move to the attempt to reinstall him as president. Sane Americans cannot continue falling for disinformation. Biden is not the reason that supply chains have been hampered, COVID is. And we were negatively affected by COVID due to the incompetence of a republican president. We cannot afford to have crazies running our government.
Republicans aren't in charge, bed wetter.

Xiden does. Why? Why don't you demand he do everything he can to get the prices to go back down by building up production? you all are fked in the head.

Here you go.

Building up production should not be done because you have to hire more people and that will create more demand for goods and services which is inflationary. There are two methods to control inflation, fiscal and monetary. Fiscal requires that government cut spending and that means congress has to decide what to cut. Monetary means reducing the money supply which makes more sense because it does not require an act of congress and the Fed has all the tools it needs to stop inflation. The only problem is that if the Fed tightens too much or at the wrong time, the country goes into a recession.
