Yeah, what about that inflation? Jeff, did she address that? Well, she didn't specifically address inflation, but governor Jay inslee, who was there with her dead, we asked about how all of this is affecting the economy. This is what he had to say. The arpa program had nothing to do with inflation in Hungary or England or Spain. This was an international global phenomenon of inflation that we are experiencing. Now, of course, Jay inslee is a governor and he's a lawyer. He's not an economist, but there are a lot of economists that say these programs did at least contribute to the inflation problem that we're seeing. Well, and I wonder, can the state actually do anything to control the effects of inflation? Not particularly because monetary policy is generally governed by the federal government. You have the Federal Reserve, and then the monetary policies of The White House and the current administration. However, Jay inslee did say he's trying to do a few things.

"They've had 200 or more new COVID-19 cases, or more than 20 new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100,000 people within a 7 day period. According to the CDC any one at risk for severe illness in those counties, should consider taking additional precautions. Governor Jay inslee mandated thousands of state workers get vaccinated against COVID-19 a year ago, or they could lose their jobs, now he wants to make proof of vaccination a permanent condition of employment. He directed state agencies just before the weekend to require all new employees to be fully up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination prior to starting work, including any recommended boosters. And if they've got a state job now, if you are not vaccinated, you may lose your job. You may not be able to keep it unless you're fully vaccinated and boosted, and this would affect about 60,000 workers among 24 different agencies that are under his control.

"We've got the report from Bloomberg, a group of economists have said that you can expect Americans should expect to have to increase or find for their budget and extra $5200 this year for inflation purposes alone. That's the reality that you can comment on and then this from Washington state governed governor Jay inslee has just signed a bill that will ban all fossil fuel field vehicles by 2030 in the state.

They've known he was at risk of doing something quite like this. So why weren't we doing a better job at making sure that we had locked up our own energy sources right here in the United States of America, knowing that we would be exposed to this vulnerability? And then you got people that clearly clearly don't have all the wires connecting in the head. They're out there in Washington saying, okay, we're going to ban vehicles other than EVs. It's actually mind boggling and it's frustrating because I know how hard this is going to hurt the American consumer. And
