In the past year, the majority of us have felt the effects of the socialist Democrat program. With Biden placed as their puppet, he has done their bidding and damaged the U.S. economy on purpose to advance the Green New Deal.
The United States officially entered a recession yesterday, since the GDP has declined for two straight quarters. Biden and his managers have lied and continue to lie about how horrible the economy is under their administration, but the public is aware because they must spend far more money to purchase the same quantity of goods as last year.
This year, American households will spend $5,915 more on ordinary things than in 2021. The inflation rate is at a 40-year high, and petrol costs are excruciating.
In the most recent report on U.S. government pricing, Moody’s Analytics analyst Mark Zandi stated that monthly household expenditure has increased by roughly $493 over the past year.
According to him, this is a significant issue for households earning around $60,000 per year. The typical household income in the United States is $67,521.
In order to feed their families since August’s inflation rate of 9.1%, the highest since 1980, many Americans have had to cut back on essential staples such as butter and meat.
In reaction to strong inflation, the federal funds rate increased by 0.75 percent on Wednesday, slowing the economy and making it more difficult to pay off mortgages, credit cards, and other loans.
Everything from President Joe Biden’s spending binge to sanctions against Russia and the conflict in Ukraine is upsetting food and energy markets.
Using the latest statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), The Daily Mail found the 45 goods on which Americans spent the most money.
According to the research, fuel prices have increased by 59.9 percent, while airfares have increased by 34,1 percent.
Eggs (33.1%), chicken (34.5%), and margarine (34.5%) are among the other commonplace commodities whose prices have increased (18.6 percent).

Take coffee, as an example. BLS data show that roasted ground coffee sells for $5.79 per pound, as a nationwide average. This past year, the price of coffee has risen 16.8 percent.
Had inflation been under control, that same pound of coffee would sell for $4.70, meaning consumers are losing out to the tune of $1.09.
Similarly, a simple men’s suit now costs $349.00. That’s an increase of 24.9 percent. The same two-piece suit should really cost $267.34, but shoppers are spending $81.66 more. CONTINUE READING…
