Inflation is Here - Thank your Congressman
Everyday products have seen a drastic increased in prices. That is not an accident.
Bi-partisan government has vastly increased Federal spending to buy the votes of the folks back home with tons a "free" goodies. That new spending was not paid for with new taxes. The government has been printing the money or borrowing it. So you have the classic case of more and more paper and digital money chasing the same number of goods and services available causing inflation.
