Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) stopped by Fox News to chat with host Dan Bongino about Joe Biden’s huge inflation problem. DeSantis says “it is nonsense; it is ideology but it is very destructive.”
“[T]he energy policy is intentional,” DeSantis says. “They are intentionally reducing our ability to produce oil and gas here in the United States. They will beg OPEC for more oil, they’ll beg Maduro for more oil. I guess Maduro’s oil isn’t global warming but American is.”
“People are getting actually hammered with gas prices and the overall inflation is attributable more than anything to Biden’s policy of printing trillions and trillions of dollars like they have done since he has gotten into office. … He was warned by Larry Summers and other Democratic economists that if you do this, you are gonna spark inflation.”
“And [inflation is] a tax, Dan, on every single American,” DeSantis says. “We’ve got people that may be making seven, eight percent more year-over-year, but if the costs of everything to live are up 15 to 20 percent, and they are, the inflation is understating it when you look at the things that really matter.
