Biden Wrecks His Last July 4th in Office – New Report Shows Americans Are Feeling the Pain

Joe Biden has left his mark on the country. Whether he stays in office or not, not a single American has been left unaffected by the spend-happy Democrat. When he ran in 2020, he promised to “build back better.” Instead, we’ve seen America rapidly decline in nearly every area.

Despite Americans struggling from coast to coast, Biden doesn’t seem concerned. From the very start of his administration, he’s appeared more concerned with his reputation and comfort.

Not to mention the comfort of China and Ukraine! But his major failures in recent months might be a swift end to his administration. Biden’s chances to win in 2024 could be rapidly fading. But he isn’t leaving office without giving us one last “gift.” And this one is sure to ruin millions of Americans’ July 4th.

From The Hill:
Inflation concerns are hitting the holiday table, with average Fourth of July cookout costs expected to soar to their highest level ever, according to new research.

This year’s American Farm Bureau Fourth of July market basket survey found that the average cost of summer cookout staples — fixings needed to feast on cheeseburgers, chicken breasts, pork chops, potato chips, pork and beans, fresh strawberries, homemade potato salad, fresh-squeezed lemonade, chocolate chip cookies and ice cream — for a gathering of 10 people will set revelers back $71.22, up 5 percent from last year and up 30 percent from five years ago.

The figure has topped $7 per person for the first time ever.

A few years ago, Biden bragged about how that year’s July 4th was going to be cheaper. He claimed he was winning for Americans because hotdogs were a few cents cheaper than the year before. Yahoo. He’s not talking about that this year, since food for July 4th celebrations is 30% more expensive than before Biden’s decrepit corpse entered the Oval Office.

Everything from beef to cheese to chicken is more expensive, thanks to Biden’s slipshod treatment of the economy. Prices are even higher than they were a year ago, by around 5%. With Americans already struggling to put food on the table, this is a slap in the face.

Do you think Biden’s going to brag about this on social media? Probably not. He’ll spend millions to fearmonger voters against supporting Trump. But he won’t lift a finger so families can afford a few hotdogs on the Fourth of July.

Pretty typical of Democrats. They promise the moon during elections. But when the rubber meets the road, they are only concerned with one thing: themselves. I’m sure Biden will have a great July 4th, care of the American taxpayer. The rest of us? I guess we will need to mortgage our houses for some hamburger buns!

Key Takeaways:

  • Biden’s inflation is causing the prices of cookouts to surge this July 4th.
  • Prices for food and other staples are 5% more expensive than last year.
  • The cost of July 4th cookouts is 30% more expensive than they were before Biden entered office.
