Michigan Democrat Rep. Debbie Dingell confessed the White House isn’t addressing major concerns in talks over Joe Biden’s spending agenda.
During an interview with CNN on Monday, Dingell said there’s not much of a discussion on the issue of skyrocketing inflation. Dingell stressed Biden and congressional Democrats are focused on passing Biden’s spending and infrastructure bills, but aren’t considering the consequences.
“So, actually probably, it wasn’t much of a discussion as I had with many other people,” said Dingell. “When we stabilize, we get the Build Back Better bill faster, bipartisan infrastructure bill passed, we’re creating these jobs, we’re going to create a lot of jobs, but it is going to begin stabilizing and already starting to stabilize as people are beginning to fill the jobs that a lot of corporations and small businesses were having a hard time going for a while.”
Economists warned inflation will only get worse and dramatically miss the Federal Reserve’s target of two percent. This despite Biden’s Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen continuing to claim this is the worst inflation spike Americans have seen in a long time.
