Biden’s policies -— starting gun for inflation

By Staff | Jun 9, 2022

To the editor:

We have a president, who is beholden to just about everyone on the planet, except the majority of American citizens he has failed to represent since his first day in office. He sent a clear signal to the oil industry on that day that American oil independence was over and done with by canceling leases and Keystone.

He bailed on Afghanistan, giving Putin and China green lights to pillage wherever they pleased, and the West would not interfere with their aggression.

His $1.9 trillion “relief bill” ratcheted up inflation dramatically at a time when the Fed should have been raising rates instead of flooding an already flooded market in liquidity with their $10 trillion plus bond and mortgage buying spree that may finally be reversed this June.

Has Biden changed course? Has he seen that virtually every move he has made has been the wrong move?


On May 11, 2022, the day that a new high for unleaded regular gasoline across the U.S. was announced, Biden continued his incredibly out of touch decisions with yet another one. He canceled the lease sales pending on 1 million acres in Alaska’s Cook Inlet, as well as two areas in the Gulf of Mexico.

If you think this president has done a great job since taking office, then you are part of the 20 percent that strongly approve of his job performance.

If you believe he has completely bungled everything he has touched since moving into the White House, then you are part of the 44 percent that strongly disapprove of the “job” he has done.

I would love to see the pros and cons list from the 20 percent that strongly approve because honestly, I can’t think of one single thing he has done that has impacted my life in a positive way.

I can, however, provide a very long list of how he has hurt me, along with so many others with his unexplainable and irrational decisions, which do nothing positive for any of us.
