‘Ding, Ding, Ding,’ White House Finally Admits Inflationary Policies

  • White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was mocked Monday for how she touted Biden’s American Rescue Plan and Inflation Reduction Act in response to questions about when Americans can expect relief from higher prices.
  • The reporter countered by noting that it has been about 18 months since gas prices began rising and inflation became apparent in other economic sectors.
  • “Well, 18 months ago, the president signed the American Rescue Plan more – back in April of 2021,” she said, adding that it was “only Democrats” who voted to pass the massive spending bill and claiming it “helped the American people.”
  • Responding to a clip of Jean-Pierre that connected 18 months of inflation to passage of the 18-month-old American Rescue Plan, Republican National Committee press secretary Emma Vaughn tweeted, “Ding, ding, ding!”
