“Next week, Americans will experience their most expensive Thanksgiving holiday ever. Everything from airline tickets to gas prices to the turkey and stuffing costs more this year. Prices were up 6.2% in October compared with a year ago, and inflation is at its highest level in about 30 years. Democrats are realizing there’s a political cost to inflation … Washington has tried to tell us this inflation was just ‘temporary’ and the result of supply-chains issues, but it’s clearly much more than that. … Last weekend, the president’s economic advisers made the rounds on the weekend news programs, claiming ‘it’s the pandemic, not politics’ that’s causing our rising inflation.” (11/18/21)
