President Biden Addresses Soaring Inflation and Reassures Americans

Amid soaring inflation that has been a source of panic for many American citizens, President Biden delivered a hopeful message while blaming Republicans on Tuesday night.

The president delivered his speech to an audience of union workers at the AFL- CIO convention in Philadelphia. Biden’s message was full of hope and passion and was well received by his joyful audience as they offered standing ovations.

Biden told his crowd, “You’re a gigantic reason why I’m standing here. Standing here today as your president. I really mean it.” He also addressed the direct effect of inflation on his people, stating that it is “sapping the strength of a lot of families” with gas and food prices rising almost daily. He emphasized the complications involved with the food crisis and his plan to help bring down the costs. Said plan includes working to get Ukrainian grain out of the country, into the global markets.

While he did mention the actions he has taken to fight the crippling inflation, unfortunately, Biden admitted that he feels stuck regarding the price jumps. He claimed, “The problem is Republicans in Congress are doing everything they can to stop my plans to bring down costs on ordinary families. That’s why my plan is not finished and why the results aren’t finished either.” Biden added, “Jobs are back but prices are still too high. Covid is down but gas prices are up. Our work isn’t done. But here’s the deal: America still has a choice to make. A choice between a government by the few, for the few, or a government for all of us. Democracy for all of us. An economy where all of us have a fair shot and a chance to earn our place in the economy.”

Since the midterm elections are quickly approaching, Biden used the opportunity to reach voters.
“The fact is Republicans in Congress are still in the grip of the ‘ultra-MAGA’ agenda. And they still refuse to consider any part of the Trump tax cuts, which delivered a massive windfall to billionaires and others. And they weren’t paid for,” Biden said. “They still refuse to consider a minimum corporate tax of 15%, minimum tax. They seem to think that the problem in America today is the working families aren’t paying enough.”

Throughout his speech, President Biden provided glimmers of hope. He declared, “But the truth is, I’ve never been more optimistic about America than I am today.”

    GOP Spread Lies That IRS Tax Auditors Will Now Be Armed

    Considering that the Republican party, formerly led by Donald Trump, coined the term “fake news” in relation to left-leaning media outlets like CNN, it is ironic that presently, conservatives are the ones who are spreading “fake news” following the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. While the primary goal of this act is to combat climate change and incentivise Americans to purchase energy-efficient vehicles and appliances, $80 billion of federal funds will also be distributed to the IRS over the next 10 years in order to reduce inflation.

    Former VP Mike Pence Shares That He’d ‘Consider Testifying’ In Jan. 6th Hearings

    At the New England Council and Saint Anselm College’s “Politics & Eggs” event yesterday morning in New Hampshire, Mike Pence revealed that if he was called to testify regarding the details of the Jan. 6th capitol riots in front of the committee investigating the incident, he “would consider it.” Following the loss of Trump and Biden in the 2020 election, Pence began to vocalize his lack of tolerance for Trump’s extremist attitudes.

    Running for Presidency after Republican Primary Defeat: Liz Cheney

    For most, the last moment they’d announce running for presidency is hours after they’ve experienced a defeat in their home state. On NBC’s “Today” show, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo. ), who had just suffered a 37-point loss in her GOP primary on Tuesday, floated the idea of running for president in 2024.

    The Worlds Food Crisis is About to Get Worse

    After six months of fighting between Russia and Ukraine – two farming powerhouses – a teetering global food system was plunged into a full-blown catastrophe, leaving millions of people facing starvation. The war between Russia and Ukraine is already fueled by climate change, soaring living costs, and a fertilizer price hike that is causing the most extreme global food crisis we have seen in decades. A U.N. brokered agreement to reopen the Black Sea for food ships may not be enough to relieve millions of people struggling to eat across the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.

    Why Liz Cheney Lost Support Of The Republican Party

    The pending reelection of Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney, daughter of former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney, is not looking too promising ahead of the Wyoming primaries taking place tomorrow, August 16th. While Cheney formerly had an 80% approval rating and was widely adored by the GOP, support from the Republican party plummeted following her disapproval of former President Donald Trump’s involvement in the Jan. 6th capitol riots. She followed in her father’s footsteps as Chair of the House Republican Conference before being voted out in 2021 when she voted to impeach Trump following January 6th.

    Trump Claims ‘Classified’ Documents Were Taken From His Mar-a-Lago Property

    The legal raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was prompted via a search warrant, obtained with the hope of discovering evidence officially tying Trump to the crimes committed on January 6th, 2021. Now, CNN has reported that more than 20 boxes of files, “binders of photos, sets of classified government materials and at least one handwritten note,” as well as “four sets of ‘top secret’ documents, three sets of ‘secret’ documents, and three sets of ‘confidential’ documents” are now in the FBI’s possession.
