Remember when Biden bragged that the 2021 Fourth of July would cost Americans 10 cents less than the year before? Yeah, that was hilarious.
But today, he can’t even brag about data that insignificant. Bidenflation has rocked every corner of the economy. Consumer prices, however, are suffering the most. High gas prices, a crippled supply chain, and other factors brought on by Biden’s decisions will hurt nearly every family this fall.
Because Biden is once again hurting America’s kids.
From Just the News:
The cost of Halloween candy is up more than 13% compared to last year, according to the most recent inflation report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The cost increase of 13.1% in the bureau’s Consumer Price Index report for September is the largest yearly increase in candy prices recorded in the CPI report.
For comparison, it took nine years, from 1997 to 2006, for candy prices to rise 13%, according to Georgia Public Broadcasting.
Come on, man. How does candy end up costing more? Biden is such a failure, that he is hurting the Halloween economy.
Next, we are going to find out that those pumpkin buckets are too expensive for families!
Thanks to Biden’s reckless handling of the economy, consumer prices continue to rise. That has impacted groceries, restaurants, and now even Halloween candy.
Thirteen percent is a big jump from just a year ago. This will mean some households won’t be able to afford candy to give out to trick-or-treaters.
Millions of children could end up with a pretty miserable Halloween night because there is less candy to go around.
How can someone screw up so badly, that candy prices are going up?
But the facts are the facts. Biden has neglected to fix the supply chain, which has been a mess for over a year. His “solutions” did nothing to improve the situation–and stores are struggling to keep shelves stocked.
The cost of transportation is also hurting prices, as the few trucks that are moving goods are getting hit with massive fuel costs.
Some stores continue to struggle to find workers, which is also adding to the pain.
All that amounts to ridiculously high prices for things any family should be able to afford.
Didn’t Biden say he was “building a better” America? Yeah, right.
- Candy is costing 13% more than last year, just in time for Halloween.
- Biden’s failed economic decisions continue to fuel record-high inflation.
- Consumer prices for most things, especially food, are getting higher each month.
