(TargetLiberty.org) – In the wake of recent numbers on rising inflation, the Biden administration is attempting to explain away the increases by pointing to a variety of factors.
First, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the “Putin price hike” was partially to blame for US inflation; now it appears Texas is next. Although she didn’t directly say Governor Greg Abbott’s (R-TX) additional border import inspections were causing inflation, she did say there have been economic consequences.
So a policy that went into effect last week is responsible for the record breaking inflation Americans have been suffering through for a year? We know better Joe. https://t.co/TjVFCuolkz

On April 6, Abbott ordered the Texas Department of Public Safety to “enhance safety inspections” at all points of entry from Mexico into Texas. During a White House briefing on April 13, Psaki said the move was causing delays in traffic thereby impacting people’s jobs in his state and stalls in the supply chain.
Ever since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, the United States has been experiencing supply chain issues, causing consumer items like food to soar. That is nothing new and certainly not the fault of Texas’ border policy.
President Joe Biden said in the past the buck stops with him with regard to the withdrawal from Afghanistan. If it applies to the economy as well, when will the White House look in the mirror and shoulder the blame for inflation instead of listing factors outside themselves?
