White House Claims They Lowered Thanksgiving Meal Prices, Then Facts And Reality Get In The Way
One of the best accomplishments of the Biden Administration was lowering the cost of the Fourth of July by 16 cents. We have a similar accomplishment this Thanksgiving.
Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre opened Monday’s briefing with a menu of Thanksgiving staples and claimed that this one of the cheapest Thanksgiving ever.
Yes, even on Thanksgiving the left has to try and gaslight the American people because the “Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes.”
The White House claimed that Thanksgiving meal costs were down from 2022’s record high.
“While inflation caused by the pandemic and Russia’s war continues to be a challenge, we have seen important progress. Just in time for holiday travel, gas prices are down a dollar and 70 cents from their peak, airline tickets are down 13 percent over the last year and car rentals are down about 10 percent,” Jean-Pierre said.
Of course, it has everything to do with Russia and COVID and nothing to do with Bidenomics.
The menu pointed out that frozen peas were down by 1.1 percent. That is considered a win for this administration.
You know, because forget cheaper fuel when you can have cheaper peas.
But really, who are you going to believe? KJP’s menu, or your wallet?
Hopefully, you didn't have to drive to get those groceries because that would blow any savings you would have had.
The average cost for a Thanksgiving meal for ten people in 2023 is $61.17. Which is 4.5 percent cheaper than 2022’s average cost of $64.05. However, that is still up 14.7 percent from 2021 of $53.31 and up 25 percent from 2019, according to a report published by the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF).
Basically, this is their way of doing the math: Increase prices by 200 percent and lower them by 10 percent. This is what they consider “cheaper”.
This is about as absurd as when the left continually claimed that Trump’s economy had nothing to do with Trump and it was all because he inherited it from Obama. Same logic, different day. Or lack thereof.
However, AFBF did not attribute any of this to what Biden has done. It was also because of the turkey.
“Traditionally, the turkey is the most expensive item on the Thanksgiving dinner table,” said AFBF Senior Economist Veronica Nigh. “Turkey prices have fallen thanks to a sharp reduction in cases of avian influenza, which have allowed production to increase in time for the holiday.”
And not every part of the country is having a “cheaper” turkey this Thanksgiving. Prices varied with the cost higher in the West and the Northeast.
This is still the second most expensive Thanksgiving meal in the survey’s 38-year history and the White House is pretending that is somehow a good thing.
I doubt bragging about the second most costly Thanksgiving meal ever will land Dems more votes. But that is just about how out of touch they truly are.
Anyway, how do you plan on spending the $3 that you are saving?
