House Speaker Nancy Pelosi counts on the fact that her constituents and Democrats are too dumb to do their own research. She knows the likelihood is that people will not take time out of their busy, stressful and chaotic lives to fact check what she says. And so, she says anything.
During a 2022 House Democratic issues Conference Friday, Pelosi discussed the record gas prices Americans are suffering at the pump, as well as inflation and painful prices. However, she blamed it all on Putin.
Pelosi went so far as to actually label everything as Putin’s: “Putin’s tax” and “Putin’s gas hike.” Wow, Democrats haven’t given Putin so much power in the United States since he overwhelmingly elected Donald Trump. Oh wait; that wasn’t true either.
Pelosi argued global inflation “starts with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin” but we could combat it with increased U.S. government spending on domestic social programs. Pelosi demanded passing President Biden’s Build Back Better Act would help things out.
The Build Back Better Act, a multi-trillion-dollar social policy bill, was struck down in Congress well before Putin invaded Ukraine because it’s a terrible idea. Not for delusional Pelosi. “So when we’re having this discussion, it’s important to dispel some of those who say, well it’s the government spending – no, it isn’t,” said Pelosi. “The government spending is doing the exact reverse, reducing the national debt. It is not inflationary.”
“We’re paying very close attention to it, but this starts with Putin because the global inflation for reasons beyond the gas price,” she continued. “Global inflation is something that we have to deal with globally, but we have our responsibility to deal with it at home, and we have legislation that does just that, by increasing supply and, again, creating jobs in a way that is not adding to inflation.”
Also on Friday, President Biden said at a Democratic retreat in Philadelphia “I’m sick of this stuff” gesturing with his hands to suggest he’d had it up to his neck. “The American people think the reason for inflation is the government spending more money. Simply not true.”

BREAKING: House fails to pass stopgap funding bill to avoid government shutdown
The House of Representatives failed to pass a continuing resolution negotiated between conservative and moderate House Republicans in an effort to avoid a government shutdown.
The Spending Reduction and Border Security Act was introduced by Republican Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida on Sept. 18, following negotiations between the conservative House Freedom Caucus and centrist Main Street Caucus, as a compromise between divided factions of the House Republican Conference to achieve unanimity while avoiding a government shutdown. The bill failed the House by a vote of 198 yeas to 232 nays, with all Democrats voting against the bill.
The bill would fund the government until Oct. 31 and cut public spending by 8.1285%, according to the bill’s text. This would yield $1.59 trillion for one month until the House and Senate pass 12 appropriations bills to provide permanent funding for the 2024 fiscal year.
The Biden administration issued a statement on Friday staunchly opposing the bill, claiming that its cuts to public spending were too severe. It indicated that President Joe Biden will veto the bill if it is presented to him, which means it is unlikely to be passed by the Democratic-led Senate, either.
The Senate has been working on its own bipartisan continuing resolution to fund the government, which includes funding for Ukraine. House Republicans have criticized the bill, with Donalds saying that it is “dead on arrival” in the House.
