Friday morning, the co-hosts of “Mornings With Maria” on Fox Business Network said that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen may be held accountable for record inflation.
“We will see if she takes the fall for this after a year telling us [inflation] was transitory,” broadcaster Maria Bartiromo told co-host Dagen McDowell.
Bartiromo previously told McDowell, “I’ve been getting emails from Wall Street people.” “The public is astonished. They are unaware that Janet Yellen is as enlightened as she is.”
Bartiromo questioned McDowell whether her sources were likewise shocked by Yellen’s remarks following Yellen’s Tuesday hearing before the Senate Finance Committee in which she voiced hope for action on climate change and gun control.
“She got the job and is expected to carry water for this completely disconnected hideous administration that’s overseeing this more than doubling in gasoline prices,” McDowell said. “So she needs to be the messenger on all of this. I don’t think people should be surprised about it, but in terms of a recession, she will be the treasury secretary that has, well, overseen snapback in inflation that certainly I have never seen in my lifetime, but also a recession that’s on the horizon.”
According to a study released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday, the Consumer Price Index increased by 8.6 percent due to rising gasoline costs. Numerous experts suggested that the Biden administration’s anti-fossil fuel policies contributed to skyrocketing gas prices.
