(FreedomBeacon.com)- Inflation is now getting so bad that the Democrats are beginning to panic that they’ll be in trouble when the midterm elections come around next year…and they’re even calling on far-left House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to do something about it.
Democratic Rep. Cindy Axne, a vulnerable Iowa Democrat who is facing an uphill battle for re-election in 2022, called on Thursday for Pelosi to pass new legislation that would address the massive supply chain problem which has caused the price of goods, food, and fuel across the United States to soar.
Axne is one of a large group of Democrats who signed a letter calling on Pelosi and the democrats to address the spike in prices through new legislation, claiming that they are “concerned about the ongoing disruptions to our nation’s supply chain.”
Axne, however, has repeatedly claimed that the supply chain crisis wasn’t even happening – but after realizing she can’t convince the suffering American people otherwise, has now reversed course. Don’t’ forget that in June, she said that Republicans shouldn’t be warning about inflation caused by government spending.
“We’re not even remotely close to a point to say that we’re at rising inflation,” she claimed.
And she was wrong.
Then, just a month later during a town hall discussion, she falsely claimed that the economy was “on great track” and that people talking about inflation constituted “false advertisements.”
And then in September, which was only a handful of months ago, she claimed that “things will get better day by day.”
Look how that turned out.
Let’s hope Iowa voters aren’t fooled. She’s only concerned now as things look worse for her party, and she even voted for the “American Rescue Plan” back in February that caused much of this damage.
