COVID Stimulus Spending Increased Inflation

"The other thing about inflation that you need to know about that I don't think a lot of people are talking about is that the COVID stimulus spending Also played a sizable role in inflation Eric beam wrote this at reason dot com And what they found when the Federal Reserve report published last month audit the fed Tom Massey you're right about that In the U.S. they found that fiscal stimulus during the pandemic contributed to an increase in inflation of about 2.6 percentage points That is a significant increase even if it doesn't account for the full run up of inflation that took place during the past 18 months Price increases accelerated in late 2021 and throughout 2022 Ultimately peaking at an annualized rate of 9.1% in June The large increase in demand triggered by the fiscal stimulus policy together with the slow pace of adjustment in production likely contributed to the current imbalance in the goods market they said Most obvious form of fiscal stimulus in the United States was the three rounds of direct payments mail to most American households during the pandemic About $823 billion was distributed in that matter According to COVID money tracker which is run by the committee for responsible federal deficit You remember that they have the 1200 bucks per person check that that went out That was early on in March They had another round $600 checks Then they had $1400 checks as part of 2021 then Biden pushed through another round of $1400 checks and households earning as much as a $160,000 in joint income were eligible for yet another round of direct payments during the first half of 2021 And when they review all this stuff they find that all this free money all your checks you just got yeah that also contributed in a big big way to inflation Shocking I know when the government gives you free money you think wow there's definitely no strings attached to this right

You know, not necessarily bad money, but you got to keep in mind, she's got to make up for all the money she lost because these little wannabe dictators were telling her that her job was an essential during the lockdown, so she comes back, let's say she pays the average rent, you know, maybe she's paying about 1300, $1400 a month, but she's a single mom. She's a single mom. She's trying to make ends meet. She's got her little boy. Let's say his name is Timmy. I'm just throwing that out there. You see how I think on the fly there, Sean? But let's say, let's say she's got her little son, Timmy. She's got to make ends meet. She needs a car to get back and forth to work. Unfortunately, she didn't save up enough money. She didn't have money to buy a cash car. She should have bought a cash car, but she decided to buy a used car. She didn't go with a new car, 'cause the new car, the average price of that is $34,635 or $575 a month, so she tried to be a little conservative. She went with a used car so she's paying 430 a month because that's the average. Now she has her grocery Bill. Her grocery bill for seeing her son probably used to top out at about three $400 a month now. She's paying a whopping $800 a month if not more under the Biden administration.

But increasingly looks like the bipartisanship Maybe Maura about talking with Republicans than actually counting on their votes, and one of those key to the Democratic majority, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, appears to be ready to go along.

I think the clip you played from an interview with mansion yesterday was really, really important away that has been largely overlooked. As you said Mansion is the key vote for Democrats in a 50 50 Senate, and he's made a lot of noises over the past. A couple of weeks to the extent that you know he wanted any kind of covert relief bill to be bipartisan. He had some discomfort with the size of the package. The Biden administration of $1.9 Trillion package. He wasn't sure about checks caused big kerfuffle about that on. So there was some real worry in trepidation. I think among liberals but but among General Democrats more broadly that he might dip, eat, fix the package. Well, instead, he came out yesterday morning and said, as your clip made clear, you know, I think I'm pretty comfortable with this. And what's even more important is what he said next, which was that he'd spoken to President Biden. And as important as it is to get Republican by in, Biden was going to move forward One way or another. I think that's a signal As I write in business week, the Democrats have learned from Barack Obama's experience in 2000 and nine can't wait forever for bipartisanship. Even if you wait too long, you lose your mo mentum. You hurt the economy and ultimately.

You may have heard the reports earlier in ABC News, Joe Biden. Apparently, the president is insisting that he wants some Republican support. So the Democrats call in the Senate for reconciliation in a budget reconciliation to get it through. Still is not the plan so far, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, the one bright spot in the Democrat Senate is saying No, he's not going along with the $15 an hour federal minimum wage. Which is a fly in the ointment. We'll see how that works out as we open up tonight show we're welcoming back against we've had on several several times. She is a Christian, a conservative. Writer. A pungent and also with her husband has a private investigative firm. And she's also the author of Socialist Don't Sleep, Christians must rise or America will fall welcoming back to the nightcap. Is Cheryl Chumley. Good evening, Cheryl. That was so great to be with you. Thanks for having me. Oh, it's It's always great to have you here. I enjoy our conversations. I find them very fruitful to be certain. Well, your latest piece. Is on executive orders or not unifying and you know, I think we found that true with President Trump's administration. I think we found a true with Barack Obama's administration. And it's equally true during Joe Biden's administration. Even though the new president has said he wanted to unify the country. All of these striking down with a stroke of a pen, not only some of President Trump's great work for us in office in his four years but also the elimination of thousands of jobs. When he would not say on the campaign trail, but he was going to eliminate a you know that there was all the questions about fracking and all the things that he said he would not answer because, of course, it might have an effect on the election. I think there's probably some voters or buyer's remorse in Pennsylvania this past couple of weeks. What do you think? Well and in Nebraska, right where the Keystone Pipeline was supposed to have ended, But you know, it's it's these voters. These supporters of Joe Biden have buyer's remorse. Shame on them because it's not a good exactly as if it's a surprise. Everybody knew Joe Biden was going to be the puppet for the far left influences on. That's exactly what he's doing, Right. E mean, it's just one executive order after another. I'm not even 100% sure that he knows what he's signing on Lena's pan out. And finding a way. There was some kind of off Mike thing during one of these signings. I didn't hear it. Somebody was telling me about it where someone actually could hear someone saying off Mike in the background. Just sign it, Joe. I mean, I don't believe he knows what he's signing either and you know he's signing it so he can see what's in it. It's kind of like the Nancy Pelosi Philosophy that got Obama care passed in the middle of the night. Yeah. And then there was that video. I don't know if he saw that, but the video after we signed, I don't know if it was drawn on the road a whole stack of on after he signed some executive orders. He was trying to put his pen back in his inner pocket and he was struggling and fumbling. And it was a lot more than just the average fumbling to find the pocket. He really looked like a doddering old man. And I don't say that with any animosity. I'm not a Joe Biden fan. I don't like his politics. But the fact that he is in the White House right now, and he's supposed to be the leader of the free country. It's It's dark times for America because this guy it doesn't even look his like his mind. Is there Well, you know that, Cheryl, Here's the thing I know I've seen firsthand Not in my family, but in other people's families, the devastation That you know, age set dementia can have on the person and on the families. And so, yeah, There's no malice here it all when we point these things out about the 46 president, it's just a matter of fact, and these were ignored. Apparently by millions of American who Americans who just simply could not find their way to vote for another four years for Donald J. Trump. Yeah, They just looked at anybody who accused Joe Biden of having some sort of mental difficulties as being just over the top partisan and it's really the shame of the Democrat Party because they're just using Joe. They're exploiting Joe Biden for their own personal far left agenda. And actually, that's what the left does. You know if you look at what's going on right now, with the teachers, unions and the closing of the schools They're exploiting the Children, and they're using the Children as a tool to demand concessions for the union interests. It's just how the left the Democrat Party operates, say they exploit people and use them for their political partisan agendas. Well, when somebody like Bernie Sanders, for example, says we cannot open reopen schools safely until we've got a covert stimulus package. What do the two have to do with each other? I don't I don't know what that I don't want. The parallels are what step back from the whole coronavirus on nail biting fright for a second and realized that even even those who have been using this corona virus to massively overreach powers government powers. Not come up with any kind of science that shows that Children are dramatically affected by the cove in 19. They just aren't kids. Kids are largely immune from this and so what it comes down to is the teachers unions. Have to create generate this sort of fright among their members that the members don't want to go back to school because they're afraid they may catch this, and it's ridiculous because you could make that case for any industry for any business. Why go back to work at all? If you're an adult, right? Well, somebody was just pointing this out. Earlier here in Cincinnati, a CPS since many public schools, the unions and there are not just one teacher's union there about five different unions associated with Cincinnati public schools..

You've gained knowledge or you've come to the ways of freedom as a result please consider becoming amplifier and helping us get on more radio stations. We would appreciate you for that. So i've been wanting to get to this article all night and this is from k. N r asked one of five point nine Salt lake city. I don't thank you. I was gonna ask you if you had to know that I have no idea this guy showed up mysteriously on my newsfeed today. I'm not familiar with this website or this radio station. But it says monthly. Two thousand dollars stimulus. Jack now could happen and we were talking earlier about you know the. Oh when biden was campaigning. Right there towards the end he was like well. Let me. i'll get your two thousand dollars. And then somehow six hundred dollars was sent out to some people and so now they've they're like okay. We'll get the other fourteen hundred equal the two thousand but this article seems to think that a recurring monthly check of two thousand dollars is possible. It says congress has spent the last week debating the biden administrations one point four trillion dollar relief package proposal. The president is calling it the american rescue plan. Of course he is. I hate the names that carpet. These are lert. I give it my seal of and the goal is to help those who are truly suffering financially because of the pandemic while they're going to help them by devaluing the money supply and well i. I think it's a great idea. Print baby print. I've become a believer in modern monetary theory which basically is print as much money as you can money printer. Go ever have to pay for it when you just print money so printed printed. Send it out. Apparently apparently fifty members of the house of representatives are urging biden to dole out not just one direct payment button monthly payments until the pandemic is over which we knows doing haley can right. The representative sent a letter to president biden and vice president harris writing. One more check is not enough during these public health and economic crisis during this public health and economic crisis. Many families cannot afford to wait for eight months between payments to truly build back better families. Okay what is wrong with. Somebody's money management if they can't stretch six hundred dollars to last eight months living like kings seems like plenty to me. Well remember during the First covid bailout package. That happened last year. They were giving people. What was it. Six hundred dollars a week extra for unemployment. I yeah so you know you take that and multiply that times four and you've got over two thousand dollars a month right. There now was only for people with unemployment. I presume this would be for absolutely every american taxpayer right. Is that the difference. Is that the difference here. Only tax payers are the tax set's not going to get it. Well i think they were. Good point your address. We should get everybody in congress and the house of representatives and the everybody all them people to just you know they get six hundred bucks a month. Yeah i think that's a great i would. I even cut their salary instead of their salary. Yeah that would be. Their salary is what i'm saying and this letter didn't specify amount for the check but representative. I believe it's ilhan. Omar a democrat from minnesota and one of the letters signers tweeted that it should be two thousand dollars each month. It's a concept that isn't too far into vice president harris. She introduced a bill in the senate last year. Asking for just that though. It did not get enough support. So of course the benefits can't go to anyone or just everyone. I'm sorry the letter stated that it should be directed to quote those who need it most and we'll spend it the quickest and that should include quote all immigrant workers refugees and their families. The question of who will receive the benefits included in the latest relief. Package is one of the things is currently figuring out so this is going to be payment to only two immigrants It doesn't setting rooting. But it should include them. Immigrants refugees and their families basically any any likely democratic voter. they can. that's how it's going to be use. Many politicians including democrats are having a problem with the bills price tag so to compromise and get more members of congress on board to make sure the package comes out faster. The stimulus check might go to fewer americans and when you think about it if half of the country it now this is an mg. I m gi. Would linda bad than this. Because once in. Mgm minimum guaranteed incomes. Ub are same as you. It's an older name for it but that would not be that horrible. But if you've got if you've got half of the country getting euboea they're effectively getting it from the other half of is support this because i think if that's the case if it's what you're talking about where it's like half the country in half the country that will divide people even further and likely hastened session So my what. If you're making too much money when they when they start handing out quit your job just quit shrug my thoughts on this is it. Sounds to me like it is rebranded uba universal basic income. But it looks like that. It's going to go to the politically favored groups. Only that is completely contrary to the spirit of the u. Universal right so if you live on mars you still get it out if you live someplace else but if you live in the united states or generally if you're a united states citizen.

President Biden will meet with 10 Republican senators today to discuss the administration's covert relief package. The GOP lawmakers want the program cut by about two thirds to about 600 billion. This is Jim Ryan. One component of Biden stimulus plan is a bump in the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025. Many states are already addressing the issue on their own. But a new study finds that the value of $15 an hour varies widely from place to place, based on the cost of living map produced by business insider shows that in California, for example. $15 feels like $12.89 while in Mississippi, it's worth nearly $18 Jim Ryan ABC News So that meeting is set to happen today. So the president is looking for some compromise with GOP senators. However, since he's been president, which is less than two weeks he's already signed his mini executive orders as Donald Trump and Barack Obama combined. In the same period. I think he set a record for the first couple of weeks. An executive order right he's gonna tear. His goal is to undo all of former President Trump's decisions. World Health Organization. They're going to rejoin that the directive to pervert preserve the DACA program, a repeal of the travel ban for Muslim majority countries and a slew of bunch of or orders, by the way, so that Congressman Dan Crenshaw to Texas he's introducing legislation to protect Texas from any sort of oil ban. Oh, well, so we might see a fight in a ledge on the legislative side. Yeah, we might. I mean that's in Texas and oil go hand in hand.

"You're no hero for saying no, no, it what you want to do. Is instead of pushing to the line when you're 30 some years old and what you want to do if you want to say no, Let's let's give it to somebody who really needs it. That's that's the whole idea, right? Because that's all point. We all want to get vaccinated. Everybody should get vaccinated. There's no question about it. Jumping in line and pushing ahead of millions of people who, if they get sick are gonna likely at least if you look at the statistics have a lot worse results. That's that's where you just say No. You say no. Look, even if it's there, give it to somebody else. I'm sure that you can find lots people of people who are much more deserving. Better fact you won't read more about this story. I sent out a tweet on it. I think Number one. You could follow me. It's that Jeff Wagner 6 20. It's one of those rare things were first looks really bad optics. If you want to be a politician. Secondly, it's just flat out. Not the right thing to do. Okay. Joe Biden. As part of his covert relief package wants to send all Americans who have previously gotten the stimulus payments. A next Ra 1400 bucks. The idea If you remember when this was floated around is okay. People got $1200 before they need more money. So let's the plan was, Let's give them $2000 to Congress. Several giving everybody 600 bucks everybody that would qualify. Biden wants to give people an extra $1400. I think that is a really bad idea. And I don't understand why the people on the left so called progressives are in such a hurry to give money to wealthy people, because here's the deal if you look at the requirements that they have Right now, You know, it's not just poor people who get the money. It's not just people who have lost their jobs or been impacted by Cove. It it's anybody based just on your adjusted gross income. So any individual Making $99,000 or less or a two adult household with an income of less than 101 150,000 is eligible for the full amount. No, Let's Let's think about that, you know, and that's just your address to gross income. That's just the money that is being reported on somebody's tax returns. You could have someone who has millions of dollars, for example in assets, retirement assets, or or whatever. Who I don't know. Last year made $130,000 a year and they're still getting the full boat. My point is, if you want to send stimulus money to people, and you think that the $600 isn't enough, I'm willing to have that conversation. But don't you have to ratchet down the income levels? I mean, seriously, I know people. I have several friends who are I think most people would describe as being very well off very well off. But because it's it's based on adjustable gross income. Maybe they're retired. Maybe then tap into their retirement accounts or whatever. Last year, they're getting these checks. And it's almost like a joke, because again if the purpose is covert relief to send it to people who haven't lost their jobs, have a bundle of money and make $145,000 a year for a family of two. That's crazy. If you want to do this All right. I can understand having this conversation. But don't you have to ratchet down the numbers and don't don't you have to say Well, okay, let's try to figure out people who've really been hurt. Um, you know, maybe Maybe people who's you know who lost their jobs. Maybe people you know who have household incomes of less than $50,000 or less than 75,000. But to send this money to people who are making $150,000 and might have millions of dollars in retirement accounts. That's all that is, is a lifeline for the rich. I would even be willing to have a conversation where we say you know what Maybe what we should do is we should even look at sending more than an extra $1400 to some people. Because maybe these are people that really need it and you give them you give them another $2000. And maybe that's that lets him pay their rent for a couple months or kind of catch up or something like that. I'm willing to have that conversation. But just to blindly send out another $1400 to Ah, lot of people who candidly don't Need the money and haven't been negatively impacted. It is huge and to understand the difference here, just I mean, I understand. Sometimes we talk about these dollar amounts. It just ends up getting lost. But the $600 checks that they sent out that cost taxpayers about $166 billion to follow up and sent everybody who got the 600 bucks. Another $1400 would bring the total up to $600 Billion.600 billion. And candidly. I mean, I can think of all sorts of better ways to spend that money, maybe again, and neighborly tenants to pay their rent, maybe financing covert 19 treatment but sending money to people who don't need it. I think it's silly 85561616 20 that second mortgage talk and text line we discussed in a moment. Or Jeff Wagner. Right after this. Here's.

"It will be harder for biden to get through as big a tax hike as he might ordinarily like if the democrats had a wider jn in the majority and so the conclusion was we're gonna get even bigger increases in spending but smaller increases in taxes. And that's the best of both worlds because we get a double dose of stimulus we get more government spending and we get less taxes so we have all this extra money and this is great for the economy is lousy for the economy. I understand why they think it's great for the market because the only thing. The market's going forward is inflation stimulus. And so you think we're going to have more inflation more stimulus because of bigger budget deficits. That's great but if you actually understand the consequences of these bigger deficits being monetize by an even bigger. Qe program in more money printing more inflation. You realize how counterproductive this is. But it is not the best of worlds for the us economy or the us stock market but it is the best of both worlds for gold and silver. It is the best of both worlds for my investment strategy of investing internationally in foreign stocks in both developed and emerging markets and having a commodity focus. It's just you don't have enough people on cnbc. Smart enough to figure that out. And i think talking about people not smart enough to figure stuff out or about bubbles. I think is a really good segue to discussing bitcoin. 'cause i gotta talk about it again. We've had a lot of volatility in bitcoin over the last few days member. Bitcoin got up to almost forty two thousand a bitcoin and then last night it actually traded below twenty nine thousand which is still every high price but that represents a thirty percent decline from its recent peak which is a pretty big drop if you happen to buy some bitcoin above forty thousand certainly doesn't feel like a safe haven or store value if your bitcoin is worth thirty percent less than what you pay of course all the bitcoin pumpers say hey. Volatility is just the price you pay to get rich right this. It's a guarantee that bitcoin is going to go up. So you just have to be willing to ride out this volatility and you're going to get rich. of course. there is no guarantee. Bitcoin can collapse. It could fall and then keep falling is just an all. These holders have been conditioned to think that after every big drop is a new rally because so far. That's how it's worked out but you know there's an old saying in the investment game past performance is no guarantee of future success and that is especially true when it comes to bubbles because there's only so big a bubble can get before it deflates for good now. We don't know that size yet when it comes to bitcoin. Is it possible that that forty two thousand was the top. Yeah it is possible. I mean i thought twenty thousand was atop for awhile and it turned out not to be. So maybe it's forty two thousand or maybe it's some bigger number. I don't know. I'm not smart enough to figure that out but what i am. Smart enough to know is that it is a bubble and that it is going to crash. One guy though..

In terms of getting that 9.8 million Americans back into the labor force? What are you looking for? Beyond just some of the proposals as laid out in the $1.9 trillion plan? Well, in addition to the executive orders that President elect Biden is anticipated to sign later this evening, at least so one of those executive orders will be AH, federally mandated mask mandate on federal grounds so any federal grounds throughout the country it will be required for individuals to wear a mask beyond that, on the $1.9 trillion stimulus front. Already it's running into partisan roadblocks. Republicans air unease E, about raising the cost of minimum wage this at a time in which many restaurants, many sectors have been shut down because of the pandemic, so a debate ideologically around the minimum wage on the $1400 stimulus checks. There's some Republicans like Senator Marco Rubio, a potential 2024 presidential candidate has argued that they should pass this in a piecemeal approach.

Let's check in with the Washington bureau chief of the Chicago Sun Times. Lynn's sweet Good Morning, Lynn. Good Morning, Bob. Let let me let me ask you right off the bat here. What's it like driving around there in D C. Now? Well, I think the pictures that people have seen on CNN and that's NBC Fox. Whatever is your outlet of choice show that this is a city that is barricaded in the city center. So as you go. What? Why you see pictures of fencing around the capital around the White House and there soon will be sensing around the mall. When you strut out into the residential neighborhoods, it's normal. So it is to Washington's people that live here When you get into the neighborhood. Nothing's changed. But when you get to the the iconic city center And the Most important places of our democracy, that most symbolic places and the places where the in the place where the riot happened last week, it's heavily fortified. There's thousands and thousands of national guard out. But again as you get into the neighborhood, this is invisible. We heard Joe Biden's plan for more stimulus and help and my question is, do you think he's gonna have trouble in acting? That? Well, first of all, and acting. It is one thing. I think you mean when, when we talk about this big trillion dollars plus rescue plan, and he has to go through Congress and as Senator Dick Durbin reminded me. When we talked about it last night, the other Hold it. Rescue packages has the Senate with almost everyone. 92 96 members of the Senate. So in this case when the Democrats will hold the majority in the Senate. Ah, lot of this film may go now There's some of it that have Things that Republicans may fight for $15 minimum wage, but A lot of these elements are things everybody needs that would include a $1400 cash payment that would be in addition to the 600 that people should or will be getting under them to make it up to 2000 extended unemployment. Age of small business, transit agencies, local governments these air things every buddy needs no matter their politics, So I think it has a high likelihood of getting another made the elements that you know you argue over but something's going to happen.

Did this surprise you, Lynn? Well, here is what surprised me is that it would be a political job that she wanted because she's going into a re election cycle herself in Illinois and 2022. Didn't bite in his been looking for a spot to put her in a higher place on his team. We know that she made the final round subpoenas vice presidential pick We know that she was in place and mentioned play that is to be defense Secretary or Veterans Administration secretary. So having this spot it's a DNC still gives her A blow to play in. The administration doesn't have to leave the Senate, and she's one of several bites chairs, so it gives her a chance to also flex some different muscles than running an agency You're working in the work is a zoo a further I think she also will be expected to do. Perhaps if we ever get back to traveling or fundraising or appearances or something, you know that could lead to other things to keep her national profile up to What do you see?

I don't know what Republican Party will emerge from this Is that the party of the of the Trump Party where the you know we did get 75 million or so votes. Right and got 81 million. And you want to respect that, within the base of Donald Trump's voters are people who believe in some of the policies that he did support. Conservative judges his east policy. There are things there that you acted in another time and place. He should have been taking the few victory laps, leaving on a high note he did get the colored vaccine developed. Over out. He didn't want to go there. So you have an Illinois and nationally a Republican party's at a crossroads. I don't know how they rebuild right now because of their own divisions within themselves, including The lawmakers that said nothing about about the election deniers. Once. What happened the terrible January 6th at the Capitol once that fades a little bit more, Although it's going to take a long time, will Will. Donald Trump have any power over Republicans when this is all over? I think absolutely well one. We also have to see how the Senate impeachment trial goes, and we don't know when it's going to begin how long it's going to be whether doubly witnesses and whether Trump himself will testify. So his role is been severely handicapped because he lost his Twitter account. He can't communicate directly with the 80 million people. Maybe a few million more. I don't have the number exact that he was able to on a moment by moment basis, So it's some ways he can't. He's not the man he wasps. He may find alternative means to communicate, But nothing will be as good for the short term is that so he still will be a factor. The fear debt got him power that he would support people to run in primaries against Republicans. I think that, at least in the 2022 cycle in some places will still be a real threat to incumbent Republican Republicans. There are many who think that the trump who might have some 2024 potential, and power is Ivanka. What do you think? Oh, no, no, no, I don't. I don't agree with that. She has She doesn't have her father's ability to mesmerize. She doesn't have her father's ability and track record to be able to get a crowd. Now there is a movement that still will. It still exists now, Trump and Trumpism Should blend your questions I have about the future of the Republican Party and Ivanka Vaca cut represents the trump wing of the Republican Party, which Trump's popularity may not be transferable. I don't see how it can be. She is in aloof, remote person. Who is as if you look at her and see her strikes you as elitist. Now chiefs. She doesn't have that touch that Trump had to be able to talk to people to make them think he's relating to them their grievances their lives. And you do have to respect that. Real lives of people who are hurting are out there and usually we see government there to help people who need No, he'd help rather than the other way around. But into this confusing mess if you put a vaca and she doesn't have that kind of base, and she doesn't have a story. What's her business story that you went to work for her? Dad? Bob, what would you say? It's your achievement. Land sweet in Washington for the sun times and on WGN for us this morning. Yeah. Always interesting to hear your take on things. Lin, have a good weekend. Thanks. Thanks so much for having.
