Dazed and Confused: Joe Biden Ignores Reality
Whole clip from Scott pelley's interview on CBS News 60 minutes from Sunday Night. Mister president first Detroit Auto Show in three years. Yeah. Is the pandemic over? A pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We're still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one's wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. So if everyone is in really good shape, then why are we spending so much on so many different welfare programs? There's a ton of money that got put into action back in March of 2020. And we're still feeling the effects of all that. I realized the president thinks inflation's up just an inch. Inflation rate month to month is just an inch hardly at all. You're not arguing that 8.3 is good news. No, I'm not saying it's good news, but it was 8.2 or 8.2 before. Actually, it's up over a percent from this time last year. As I predicted, by the way, it would, I said it over and over again right here on this show as far back as summer of 2020 that you couldn't have. This much fiscal and monetary policy working together and not run certain risks. Anyway, you have welfare benefits that have skyrocketed. Think about the millions of people that are still receiving food stamps because they expanded that program pretty dramatically. That was the national emergency, remember? You had a restriction or a lack of restriction, I should say, on state requirements for work, which meant more people were able to file for more benefits. States were not able to remove people, for example, from Medicaid roles, even if the people were no longer eligible for Medicaid, the prediction is that it's costing taxpayers according to a report in The Wall Street Journal about $16 billion a month.
