If you’re noticing things are more expensive this Christmas, if you can get them at all, blame the mixture of incompetence and left wing economics of the Biden administration. Senator Joni Ernst, Republican of Iowa, and other GOP senators, want to make the situation very clear to voters so those voters will remember next November.
FNC: “Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, is leading a group of GOP senators in a speech Thursday blasting the Biden administration for rising prices nationwide, causing Americans to struggle to complete their shopping lists during the holiday season.
According to remarks exclusively obtained by Fox News, Ernst, who serves as vice chair of the Senate GOP Conference, blasts ‘Bidenomics,’ as Americans are finding it difficult to pay for the rising price of gifts and other goods as Christmas approaches.”
“[B]idenomics is causing everything to be back ordered, delayed, unavailable, or just plain unaffordable,” Ernst says. “Even Christmas trees are in short supply! With the cost of gifts up 20% and consumer prices surging to the highest level in over 30 years, you are paying a ho ho whole lot more for a ho ho whole lot less… that is if you can even find what you are looking for!”

“The Democrats’ out-of-control spending spree and misguided economic policies – like paying people not to work for most of the year – have decreased both the availability of goods as well as the value of the money in your wallet,” the remarks state. “But rather than addressing these concerns, ‘Bare Shelves Biden’ is pushing his so-called Build Back Better Act, which itself is a Christmas tree bill adorned with something for every left wing special interest group and topped off with a massive $300 billion tax break for coastal elites,” Ernst commented. “After enduring nearly two years of making sacrifices, folks should not have to now choose between heating their house, buying food for their families, or putting gifts under the tree.”
In related news, Senator Ernst backs a Washington memorial to troops who served in the Global War on Terror. “I was proud to help successfully secure my bipartisan effort to build a #GWOTMemorial on the National Mall in the #NDAA,” Ernst said in a Tuesday tweet. “Now is the time to honor those who fought and died in the Global War on Terrorism for their sacrifice. Let’s get it across the finish line.”
“We call on the U.S. Senate to do their part so the memorial can be built in the central part of the Mall,” Wounded Warrior Project CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington said in a Nov. 5 statement. “Future generations should be able to learn about the Global War on Terrorism and honor the sacrifices of those who served, fought, were injured or were killed in America’s longest war.”
