Fox News host Laura Ingraham targeted the Biden administration’s role in record inflation and supply chain shortages in her opening monologue of “The Ingraham Angle” on Wednesday night.
Year-over-year price inflation in September was the highest since January 1991. Gas prices rose 42%. The price of steak rose 22% and the price of eggs jumped almost 13%. Used car prices rose 24%. And heating bills are expected to climb 54% this winter.
“And [the Biden administration’s] The answer is to double climate change programs and government spending that will drive prices even higher, ”said Ingraham. “Even though your grandmother is at risk of dying from hypothermia, Joe says now is not the time to be nearsighted.

Biden said the $ 3.5 trillion infrastructure bill would lead to reductions in their carbon emissions by trucking, air freight and shipping companies. Ingraham said such companies would “get big contracts” to make unnecessary green products in China while the country burns coal.
In light of widespread supply chain disruptions, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration “cannot guarantee” the on-time arrival of vacation packages.
“The Grinch has nothing on these people,” Ingraham said. “The point is, the Biden administration has shattered our economy, and now it plans to make matters worse by crushing trillions in additional spending,” she added.
Ingraham said that despite record tax revenues in the previous fiscal year, the federal government still wants to raise taxes “because the monster still has to be fed.” But she said that would not stop the bleeding from supply chain shortages and inflation.
Even CNN reporter John King agreed, saying only one in four Americans think the infrastructure bill would improve their daily lives. About a third of Americans think they would be “worse” and 43% think they would be “about the same” if the bill passed.
On the contrary, higher taxes and the $ 3.5 trillion infrastructure bill “would make life harder for the average American,” Ingraham said. The alarming rate of inflation makes it impossible to spend billions of dollars in federal spending. Such exorbitant spending is only achievable once inflation is “under control,” Ingraham said. If not, “we will go from the top of the cliff,” she warned.

“Biden and the Democrats will steal our children’s future from them – just like the Grinch in the middle of the night, slipping around presents, taking everything in sight,” Ingraham predicted. “And unlike the cartoon, Biden won’t see the foolishness of his manners or change his mind.”
