Dealing With Inflation

Democrats have decided that the way they need to run for reelection and hold on to Congress is to do two things. The abortion issue is key and they need to hammer that every chance they get. And they need to basically say that the Republicans are just “anti-Democrat” and don’t have a plan on how to fix things. Some added a third thing, saying that the GOP wants to take away Medicare and Social Security from seniors, which is a blatant lie.

Anyway, we’ve learned from the recent polling that the whole abortion issue has pretty much peaked in the minds of the voters. In some polls that list the top election issues, abortion comes in with between 5 and 7% of the vote, while things like the economy and inflation and crime are in the high 70’s. Now there are others (most liberal polling companies) that say that abortion is still a “top five” issue and is up in the 60% range, but even Democrats are saying they hit it too hard too soon and have peaked.

So, let’s tackle the big issue. What WILL Republicans do to lower inflation and help the economy if they win back Congress. They aren’t going to have a veto-proof majority any way you look at it, so they aren’t going to be able to just reverse everything from the Infrastructure Bill to the Build Back Better Light bill. Joe Biden would never sign those things.

What they can do is change things going forward. First and foremost, they can stop the horrendous spending that Biden has embarked on. They can (and lots have) file lawsuits to stop the student debt reduction that Biden signed as an executive order. Remember, Biden was able to bypass Congress because he said it was part of an emergency situation, being the pandemic. But Biden himself has said the pandemic is over. So, if that’s the case, there is no emergency, and he would have no standing to do what he’s trying to do.

Other than that, Congress should severely cut back on spending from this point on. Drastically cut all social programs in the budget. Take money out of future budgets for infrastructure programs that aren’t fixing roads and bridges and airports, and do the same for everything that Biden has added for Green New Deal programs. Threaten to shut down the government if he doesn’t go along with it (because that saves money as well).

And make sure, if the GOP takes back the Senate that no one with any sort of liberal bent is even able to get a hearing when it comes to judicial appointments. One of the best things that happened because of Donald Trump was the GOP taking a solid 5-4 and in a lot of cases 6-3 lead in the Supreme Court. And you’re seeing what happens farther down the judicial line as conservative judges were appointed by the 234 judges Trump appointed to federal benches. If you stop liberals from getting seats, you’re basically utilizing the judicial branch for the conservatives. That can’t be a bad thing!

Stopping the spending is the easiest way in the world to bring this economic crisis to a halt and to stem the tide of inflation. Only the FED can change interest rates, and that will suck if you owe money for a while, but other than that, the prices will come down if we stop flooding the market with cheap cash. That has been the cause of this economic boondoggle, regardless what Joe Biden says. It wasn’t the pandemic. It wasn’t Putin’s invasion of Ukraine (though spending $54 billion hasn’t helped!), and it is only one thing. Joe Biden spending money like a drunken sailor.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. Angie Craig, Democrat, has been attacking the republican candidate, Tyler Kistner, in my district with the ‘take away Medicare and Social Security’ line repeatedly. Which has been refuted by Kistner and others. Yet she keeps at it…and the banning abortion gambit. She who votes in lockstep with Pelosi.
