(RepublicanWire.org) – Biden’s strange speech at an Illinois fundraiser sparked immediate reactions after he began screaming about food shortages and other problems facing the nation under his watch.
“Remember those long lines you’d see on the television and people lining up in all kinds of vehicles just to get a box of food in their trunk? How quickly we forget people were hurting,” Biden said.
“And what did the MAGA crowd want to do? Forget it. Forget it,” he continued angrily. “God, this is the United States of America. The idea that people would have to wait in line an hour or hour and a half to get a box of food in their trunk — it’s just unbelievable.”
In America, food shortages don’t seem possible because it’s a preposterous idea that a nation that grows and produces enough food to feed 10% of the planet is actually experiencing food shortages.
In an attempt to quell food shortages, the Biden administration said it plans to increase the number of counties eligible for insurance for double cropping, which is when farmers plant a second crop on the same land in the same year.
“Double cropping comes with real risks,” the president said. “If the weather conditions aren’t ideal, or at least good … then the timing of everything is thrown off.”
“But it’s a risk we need to take,” Biden added. “That’s why my administration is looking at how to extend crop insurance coverage to give financial security to farmers.”
Food prices will soar by 22.9% this year, highlighted by a 40% rise in wheat prices, according to the report issued late last month.
Biden assured in his remarks that his administration “can make sure that American agriculture exports will make up for the gap in Ukrainian supplies.”
And leaving the farm in Illinois, Biden told CNN that inflation is “going down,” after the latest data from the Consumer Price Index revealed that US inflation increased at a slower pace than in previous month.
“They’re going down,” Biden said. “Got a lot more to go down.”
As the shortages continue and worsen, Biden will switch gears and begin to blame “greedy farmers” for wanting to make a buck. He will blame anyone for the economic mess this country is in, except himself.
