  • The exchange between Sen. Warren and Jerome Powell is instructive.

    Powell argued that all Americans, not just two million, are suffering under high inflation.

    “Will working people be better off if we just walk away from our jobs and inflation remains 5% or 6%?” Powell replied.

    Warren cautioned Powell that he was “gambling with people’s lives.”

    Powell is correct. Inflation has the potential to destroy peoples’ savings and their retirement portfolios — everyones’. People seem to be sleepwalking at present, unaware of what is happening. Since retirement funds are primarily used to support lifestyles beyond retirement they are fully impacted by a rising CPI. The purchasing power in them has declined by 14% already under the past two years of Bidenomics. Yet most Democrats I know can’t stop praising Biden and tell me they are unconcerned about inflation because they think it affects only people richer than themselves.

    The Democrats gamble with peoples’ lives all the time.
