Biden Brags About Saving Americans 16 Cents, Gets Ridiculed

(WND) The White House posted on social media a statement about how a July 4th picnic dinner is supposed to be costing 16 cents less this year than last, and got ridiculed online.

The president, in a boast about his “economic plan, said, “Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish.”

Fox reported Rep Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., wondered if the Biden administration has been to a gas station recently.

“The average price for a gallon of gas is $3.15. This is the HIGHEST price for a gallon of gas since 2014 and a 42% INCREASE from last year,” she said, also on social media.

Dan Price, the chief of Gravity Payments, noted,”16 cents? Home prices are going up 24% annually right now. The median home goes up 16 cents every 1.3 seconds right now.”

Fox reported, “The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service found that this year, food-at-home prices have ticked upward by 1.4 percent. The report said the fresh fruits category ‘has had the largest relative price increase (4.8 percent) and the fresh vegetables category the smallest (0.3 percent). No 2021 price categories decreased compared to 2020 prices.'”

Others showed no mercy on the Biden statement:

“Hear that, Millennials? You got a whole extra $0.16 this year. Why don’t you own homes yet?”
