WH Press Secretary Unintentionally Admits Inflation Caused by Biden’s Rescue Plan

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

On Monday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre unintentionally made a connection between the significant rise of inflation and President Joe Biden’s signing of the American Rescue Plan.  After being questioned about soaring inflation, she stated, “Well, 18 months ago, the president signed the American Rescue Plan back in April 2021.”  Her inadvertent response confirms what was reported by the New York Times — economists “agree that the stimulus spending contributed to accelerating inflation.”
