FoxNews.com reports that
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle argued Americans have to put the high inflation rate and rising costs of food and other every day items “in perspective” on Sunday.
The consumer price index rose 6.2% year over year in October, according to the Department of Labor, the largest annual gain since November 1990. And prices rose 0.9% month over month.
But the soaring costs, Ruhle said on NBC, were expected after the worldwide pandemic, before telling anchor Willie Geist that Americans “on average” can actually afford the higher prices.
“The dirty little secret here, Willie, while nobody likes to pay more, on average, we have the money to do so,” she said. “Household savings hit a record high over the pandemic, we didn’t really have anywhere to go out and spend.”
Ruhle added that the U.S. is expecting “record” retail sales this year, home values are up, and the stock market is experiencing record highs, to justify her argument.
Conservative pundits predicted that, if adopted by Democrats, the kind of messaging Ruhle was espousing will derail their chances in the next round of elections. Others referred to Ruhle as “Stephanie Antoinette,” in reference to Marie Antoinette, the arrogant Queen of France during the French Revolution.
Others called her “tone deaf,” “elitist” and “out of touch.”
Andrew Wagner, the director of public affairs for the Minnesota House Republicans, called Ruhle’s comment “next level out of touch stuff.”
Ruhle was accused of out-of-touch thinking after she argued that unvaccinated Americans can just work from home or homeschool their children, despite studies showing that it was harder for less well-off Americans to have the ability to work from home.
“If you do not want to get vaccinated, you can work from home,” she said in September. “You can home school your children. You can shop online.”
Inflation is credited as one of the driving factors causing Democratic senators like Joe Manchin, W.Va., from supporting President Biden’s social spending bill. The bill has reportedly dropped from $3.5 trillion price tag to under $2 trillion.
The president argued the reconciliation bill will help reduce inflation.
“It is important that Congress pass my Build Back Better plan, which is fully paid for and does not add to the debt and will get more Americans working by reducing the cost of child care and elder care, and help directly lower costs for American families by providing more affordable health coverage and prescription drugs — alongside cutting taxes for 50 million Americans, including for most families with children,” he said.
Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, argued the Democrats’ spending bill will “add fuel to the fire.”
Indeed, it will.
You know what else is adding fuel to the fire?
The overwhelming arrogance of the Far Left Democrat Elitists.
From Joe Biden on down, the Democratic Party has demonstrated in the last 10 months that they do not care what Americans think…nor what we want and need.
All these oligarchs care about is their special interest groups who help them grow their political power and wealth.
The Democrat Elite view themselves not only as the “Smartest People in the Room”, they view themselves as superior in ever criteria to average Americans.
Stephanie Ruhle remains oblivious as to the condescending tone of her comments.
To her, average Americans like us deserve to be talked down to because we cannot possibly be as intelligent as she is.
Biden feels the same way.
When Biden leans forward at the podium and whispers when he is trying to make a point during a speech or when he says that Americans do not understand how the Supply Chain operates, his dementia-riddled brain is allowing his Democrat Elitism to come out from behind his “Lunchbucket Joe” façade.
That is the reason that Biden, Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrat Snobs in Washington are still trying to pass the fiasco known as the Build Back Better Bill.
They want to “radically change” America into a Marxist nation so that they can get richer than they already are and rule with impunity like the old Soviet Politburo.
Americans have had enough.
