“Era sbagliato considerare l'inflazione transitoria? These price spikes seem like they’re going to be with us for a while,” Brennan asked.

The question referred to a previous dichiarazione pushed by White House press secretary Jen Psaki that insisted inflazione was only “transitorio” and should go down within the next year.

Da allora economists have admitted inflation has only gotten worse as the year ends with many predicting the increased spending proposals from Presidente Biden could make the problem worse.

And that’s about what we need to do to pass Build Back Better. It strengthens our economy.

This struggle through a basic question reminded critics of previous segnalazione in quale, an ex-staffer of the vice president says she repeatedly refuses to read briefing materials and prepare for meetings.

It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,” one former staffer said. “With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why.

Several Harris staffers have since left their positions in the year since she and Biden took office.
