Joe Biden’s policies make Thanksgiving 2021 the most expensive ever
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – As inflation surges in the United States, Americans are paying more and more everyday for necessary goods.
Various officials in the Biden Administration have downplayed the harm inflation causes for Americans, even as they push for a massive $3.5 trillion spending bill. Republican opponents and many economists say the spike has been caused by too much spending.
The difference in theory has caused the Build Back Better bill to stall, as Democrat leaders are having a very hard time gathering enough votes to get it through Congress.
Back in July, the Biden Administration touted numbers that claimed Americans would save .16 cents on their Fourth of July BBQ… sixteen cents.
As expected, this announcement from the Biden Administration was mocked by the public. Most people disagreed with their findings, as they personally saw their grocery bills increasing a noticeable amount, but the Biden Admin reported differently.
Now, as Americans prepare for Thanksgiving, the high cost of goods are even more staggering.
According to a New York Times report titled , “This year’s Thanksgiving Feast Will Wallop the Wallet,” Americans will pay more money for essentially every single ingredient for their Thanksgiving dinners with friends and family.
The report even adds that major food companies like Nestle and Procter & Gamble have already warned consumers to “brace for more price increases.”
For comparison, a Thanksgiving meal for 10 in 2020, under President Donald Trump, was the cheapest it has been since 2010, according to the American Farm Bureau.
The New York Times report says there are many reasons for the high price of food in 2021, explaining “the nation’s food supply chain, high transportation expenses, labor shortages, trade policies and bad weather, and of course, inflation.
