Inflation probably rouses the people more than any other political issue.
However, MSNBC’s Joy Reid disagrees, contending that inflation worries are only a contrived story.
In a segment on Friday’s MSNBC, Reid made this claim.

The leftist ideologue asserted that Americans had been “educated” by conservative media to worry about inflation.
The use of the phrase itself, according to Reid, “That is not part of the normal lexicon of the way people talk.”
The MSNBC host asserted that only “journalists and economists” have previously been able to discuss inflation.
Reid’s assertion that the discussion of inflation had only been created as a partisan storyline was quickly refuted by conservatives.

National security and leftist cultural lunacy can be disregarded (if you’re fortunate enough to live far away from them). The Biden administration has left America’s borders open to illegal immigration, but one may even bury their head in the sand and pretend otherwise.
A little bit different is inflation. The typical person becomes aware of a 15% rise in their weekly grocery bill.
Inflation is frequently identified as the political issue that most worries Americans, according to polls. And they put the blame on the Biden administration.
That isn’t conservative media fabricating a story for political ends. Americans are struggling to make ends meet, pay their debts, and support their families.
In fact, a Democrat was the one who most effectively portrayed the expense of living as the one issue that Americans cared about most.
Democratic strategist James Carville popularized the phrase “It’s the economy, stupid” in 1992. President Bill Clinton effectively used it to attack President George H.W. Bush during the incumbent’s reelection campaign.
Given how horribly a President like Joe Biden has handled and botched the economy, Reid may do well to acknowledge that it is and always will be the king of the American political appetite.
