Letter: Democrats deceive on inflation

Biden has been officially nominated for the “Lie of the Year Award” by many media sources with his absurd inflation speech last week. 

Firstly, to state that all countries of the world are experiencing as high an inflation rate as the U.S. rate which hit 9.1; note the following inflation rates of countries on four continents: China 2.1; Japan 2.5; Mexico 3.0; Malaysia 2.2; Bolivia 1.0; Liechtenstein 1.1; Saudi Arabia 2.3; Switzerland 2.5; Ecuador 2.5; Tanzania 3.8; France 4.5. 

Secondly, to blame inflation on the pandemic: Note that the prior Republican administration had kept inflation below two percent throughout an entire year of Covid. 

Thirdly, to blame inflation on Ukraine, U.S. inflation was running close to nine percent before Ukraine. 

Fourthly, to say that U.S. inflation is zero, which is an utter equivocation. 

Let’s vote out Democrats, who gave us reckless spending, which 230 noted economists declare to be our root cause of inflation. Start by voting for Peter Hernandez in District 18.
