Univision host Luis Carlos Vélez attacked President Joe Biden on his show Tuesday for repeatedly averting responsibility for the ongoing inflationary crisis.
Earlier in the day, Biden gave a big speech on inflation. In the words of the New York TimesBiden “tried … to deflect blame for rising prices with a direct attack on Republicans for pursuing what he called an ‘Ultra-MAGA agenda.'” The Washington Post has already debunked Biden’s narrative.
On his show “Línea de Fuego,” Vélez urged Biden to stop the “blame game.” After all, the proverbial goat should stop at the president.
“President Biden. Please. Stop the blame game and face the inflation problem in this country,” Vélez began. “People just can’t take it anymore. Your words today just stunned us all.
“They were not only a hand wash in the face of a very difficult price situation, but also a shameless opportunity to attack Republicans,” he continued, referring to Biden’s speech.
“Solving this is not up to your opponents, Mr President. It does not correspond to the Federal Reserve. It’s not up to business. It suits you!” argued Vélez. “You must lead to offer solutions and persuade those you must govern.”
After noting that the inflationary crisis was the worst America had faced in 40 years, Vélez taunted Biden by joking that “the moon, stars and sun” were “clearly” to blame for the inflation.
“The worst part of COVID was two years ago and we were already recovering economically when you arrived. It was the administration’s fault for handing out stimulus packages when people no longer needed them. And it’s your fault that to date we haven’t put a facility in place to solve the supply chain problem,” Vélez said.
“How much longer, Mr. President?” he asked. “People don’t feed on politics. People feed on wages, jobs and opportunities. The responsibility to do something is yours alone, Mr. President.”
Inflation remains near a 40-year high, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said on Wednesday. The agency said the consumer price index rose 8.3% last month compared to April 2021, CNBC reportedwhich was worse than economists predicted.
Americans should expect to spend more than $5,000 on essentially the same items this year compared to last year due to inflation. according to Bloomberg.
