So you think you’ve been paying more for groceries because your food bill is too high?
You’re right. Barack Obama is consuming fine dining while you’re putting another helping of macaroni on your plate. In 2011, with Obama’s inflation beginning to hit, prices skyrocketed for staples that you consume, according to the government:
- Beef: +10.2%
- Pork: +8.5%
- Fish: +7.1%
- Eggs: +9.2%
- Dairy: +6.8%
- Oils and Fats: +9.3%
Thanks to those kinds of prices, more and more people are opting to stay home for dinner – restaurants are simply too expensive. The gap between how much Americans eat out and how much they eat at home is the biggest since the mid-1970’s oil crisis.
These, of course, will have a disproportionate impact on the poor and middle class. Once again, it shows how little this administration cares for those two segments of the population. But, I wonder how many from each will vote for Obama, so he can do even more, “hope and change.”
To those who will vote for the empty suit in November, I can only ask one thing…
How ya likin’ that change?
