Schumer Just Laid Down a Stinging Indictment of the Biden Admin – RedState

We’ve seen a lot of people being hit hard by the policies of the Biden Administration.

With inflation driving all kinds of prices up, it’s putting a real dent in people’s pocketbooks.

The Consumer Price Index surged last month by 5.4 percent, compared to September 2020, the biggest jump in 13 years — and higher than had been predicted by economists.


“Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 5.4 percent before seasonal adjustment. In September, the indexes of food and shelter grew and contributed to more than half the month-over-month all item seasonally adjusted increases. The index for food increased 0.9 percent and the index of food at home increased 1.2 percent. The energy index increased 1.3 percent, with the gasoline index rising 1.2 percent,” the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. “The all items index rose 5.4 percent for the 12 months ending September, compared to a 5.3-percent rise for the period ending August.”

A major issue is the rising price of oil and gas, which will impact energy prices very hard in the coming holidays and cooler weather.

The US Energy Information Administration released a report Wednesday that showed households are likely to spend more on propane than last winter. They will also pay 43% more in home heating oil and natural gas, as well as 54% more for propane.

According to the EIA, home heating costs will rise in all fuel types and for a range of weather conditions.

This forecast indicates a rise in energy prices, particularly oil and natural gas. For the first time in 2014, oil prices in the United States have closed above $80 per barrel. Prices for natural gas, which is the main fuel that heats homes, have risen to levels not seen since 2008.

Listen as the Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) confirms it’s a big problem. “No family should have to choose between heating their home or putting food on the table,” Schumer says.

Chuck, whose party holds control of both the Senate and House, can we please remind him? It is an indictment against the Biden administration and the failure by Democrats to solve the problem.

While prices are up around the world for oil and gas, Biden and the Democrats have been doing everything they can to kill our energy production and independence — from stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline to going after coal because of their climate agenda. Meanwhile, Biden was building up Putin’s energy production by relieving sanctions on Nord Stream 2 and begging OPEC to pump more oil. This is the end of the green agenda. This applies only to us putting in more restrictions.

So, if you’re wondering why prices are up, look in the mirror, Chuck, because this is on you Democrats.

But of course, the White House only thinks these are “high class” problems, apparently, according to Chief of Staff Ron Klain.

That’s how little they think of those Americans of whom Schumer is speaking.

Are there any officials more ignorant than this?
