Biden Slammed For Bragging He Is Bringing Prices Down - Even Though They Are UP Since He Entered Office

President Joe Biden has been humiliated after bragging about reducing the prices of gas, groceries, and airline flights in a speech on Monday.

Republicans were quick to refute Biden’s claim, taking to social media platform X to call him out for misinformation. The Republican National Committee wrote: “‘FACT: Since Biden took office, airfare is up 21 percent, Thanksgiving dinner was up 25 percent, and gas prices are $0.86/gallon higher.”

This has proven to be yet another instance of Biden struggling to prove and garner support for his administration’s economic policies and plans, something that is especially important in the run-up to the 2024 election campaign.

While it is true that inflation has slowed and prices of some things have dropped in price since last year, the cost of most things are still higher than they were before the pandemic.

In an attempt to sell Bidenomics to the public, the President admitted that prices were still too high but the lower cost of Thanksgiving compared with last year should be seen as a win – though Republicans argue that this is untrue.

Biden said in his supply chain resilience council meeting: “Together we made progress. You know from turkey to air travel to a tank of gas costs went down and went down. In fact, as a share of earnings this Thanksgiving dinner was the fourth cheapest ever on record.

“We know that prices are still too high for too many things, that times are still too tough for too many families, but we’ve made progress.”

His claims are supported by the American Farm Bureau Federation, who say that the average cost of a dinner for 10 people was $61.17 this year, down from $64.05 in 2022. However, the price is still higher than in 2021 when the average was $53.31. Gas prices have also fallen to an average of $3.25 for a gallon, compared with $3.55 a year ago, according to AAA.

But Republicans took issue with Biden’s claim of reducing gas costs. The Republican National Committee wrote on X: “FACT CHECK: Under Joe Biden, gas prices have been above $3 per gallon for over 900 days in a row.”

Biden’s administration says that recent high inflation has been caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine disrupting supply chains and sending energy prices shooting up around the world. However, Republicans claim it has been caused by Biden’s stimulus spending.

Many Americans are finding it hard to see the appeal of Bidenomics, especially since prices of everyday items are still high, which could prove tricky for the 2024 election.

Republican Senator Markwayne Mullin jumped on this. He took to X and said: “Last year, Joe Biden’s broken policy agenda generated the highest inflation in 40 years. Americans have faced 33 straight months of rising prices, with food costs increasing every month since Biden took office. Americans aren’t buying the spin.”
