    For the second time in a week, President Joe Biden made a false claim about inflation - and he did not get away with it as journalists and political rivals called him out on it.

    Biden told Yahoo Finance in an interview on Tuesday that inflation was at 9% when he became president back in January 2021.

    However, as fact-checkers pointed out when Biden made the same assertion during a CNN town hall last week, inflation actually was at 1.4% when he took office.

    The latest gaffe by the president got posted to social media by the press and the Republican National Committee (RNC), who also noted the correct statistic

    "All Biden does is LIE!" Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), who is now a U.S. Senate candidate, said on X in response to one of the posts.

    "Who told him this? Is he lying or does he have no idea what's going on?" asked RNC strategic communications director Tommy Pigott.

    "Inflation first hit 9% in June 2022, over a year after Biden took office," Pigott added. "Inflation didn't begin accelerating until after Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion 'stimulus.'"

    Polling from Gallup conducted last month showed that Americans named inflation or the high cost of living as the most important financial problem facing their family.

    Forty-one percent selected inflation or the high cost of living for the open-ended question, which is the highest figure yet in Gallup's annual Economy and Personal Finance poll.

    The implication of Biden's incorrect claim is that the rate was high when he took over the White House from Donald Trump, who like Biden is running another presidential campaign this year.

    While speaking about inflation with Yahoo Finance, Biden said he believed the rate had gone "slightly up" and "it's now down to about 3%."

    Alluding to concerns about the economy, Biden said, "The fact is that I think people are just uncertain and that's why we've got to be steady - stay the course."

    Biden then contended that "pay for the jobs are outpacing the inflation rate they're paying." He added, "We're going to be able to deal with this," before stressing, "It's going to take a little more time."

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.

Maybe it's because your made up really isn't close enough to actual reality to oust him. Trump is such an idiot he thinks he can get away with anything. Thats only true if you let him.

Biden tells more lies than George Santos. Too bad he could not be ousted as easily as Santos. We definitely need to toss him out in November. Biden is George Santos on steroids.
