Reb Eliezer’s list of issues is in line with mine, which of course means it’s pretty good. Here’s why I will vote for Biden supporters in the Midterms:
Economy – is strong despite difficult circumstances of high fuel and food costs.
Inflation – is largely the province of the Fed, and Biden will not stand in their way; and it’s a world-wide problem.
Gun control – is opposed by Republicans, and the Second Amendment is substantially misunderstood by opponents of gun control.
Covid – the Centers for Disease Control know better than the rest of us what should be done; yes, I am tired of wearing a mask, but it’s better than getting a serious disease; Republicans, e.g., Gov. DeSantis of Florida, are mostly foolish about Covid.
Ukraine – Russia and its dictator, Putin, are a serious threat to democracy throughout the world. Non-Trumper conservatives want Biden to fight harder for Ukraine, and they are right.June 15, 2022 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm #2097143
Economy – what would congressman do to help or harm?
Inflation – Biden will do everything to say he did something. Not much can be done. Voting in Biden supporters will not help him say anything. He’ll have less opponents to blame.
Gun control – make this a voters issue. Not a party issue.
Covid – Biden is ignoring it. Has been for months.
Ukraine – is foreign policy. Biden does not really need Congress for it. And he probably has their backing on Ukraine.
Maybe voting Republican is better for Biden. The Democrats sure did not deliver for him until now.June 15, 2022 12:50 pm at 12:50 pm #2097196
Economy, are you nuts? when was the last time you filled your tank or went to the grocery? it out of control
Inflation is out of control because Biden asked the Fed to do nothing.
Covid is a none issue much to the Democrats charginJune 15, 2022 1:06 pm at 1:06 pm #2097214
Brandon the Butcher is directly responsible for the nearly 600,000 U.S. COVID deaths that occurred under his watch.June 21, 2022 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #2098908
To common saychel: No, I am not nuts. Last time I filled my gas tank and went to the grocery store was this morning. I don’t like the high prices any more than anybody else.
When was the last time you studied economics? The economy is measured by far more than food and gasoline prices, and the US economy is currently strong by most measures. Inflation is cutting down the value of some of the economic growth, and high gas and food prices are in part a serious consequence of Putin’s war on Ukraine.
One other thing: common sense is a fall-back when we do not have sufficient education or expertise to discuss a matter knowledgably.June 21, 2022 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #2098978
To GadolHa: Would you (or anybody else) please explain why the term “Brandon the Butcher” is used to refer to President Biden. I have no idea where the term comes from or what it means. I have a feeling – from the contexts when it is used used, that it is derogatory.June 21, 2022 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #2098997
@Huju, my minor is college was in economics, FYI being that you dont know squat about this subject, there are two meassures of inflation, core and non core, CPI includes engery and food.
PS google lets go Brandon and you will find outJune 21, 2022 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #2099007GadolhadorahParticipant
“Brandon” was misinterpreted by a sportscaster from an obscene anti-Biden chant by a bunch of rednecks at a NASCAR event and as become a codeword for X-Biden. Dofi shows his usual adolescent tendencies with the same stupid commentary on any new post.June 21, 2022 7:42 pm at 7:42 pm #2099029
“Brandon” is nothing compared to the name calling that has become your trademark. I’m really surprised by how tame your post is. Don’t hold back.June 22, 2022 10:24 am at 10:24 am #2099172
Biden, unlike Trump who politicized the Fed, respects the independence of the Federal Reserve.
President Biden never communicated to the Fed what they should do. Never did he tell them to do nothing regarding inflation.
(In fact, if you are a Biden hater, you could accuse him of shifting responsibility to the Fed for inflation. )
Inflation is not an American problem. It is a global issue. Inflation in the Eurozone and UK is over 8 percent.
In April, the U.S. Department of Energy announced that it has awarded contracts for all of the initial 30 million barrels it put up for sale as part of President Biden’s historic Strategic Petroleum Reserve Release. These barrels will be delivered in May and June, and are the first U.S. sale in the largest release from reserves from both the United States and the rest of the world in history. Together, these releases will put more than one million barrels per day on the market over the next six months, and will help address supply disruptions caused by Putin’s further invasion of Ukraine and the Price Hike that Americans are facing at the pump.June 22, 2022 1:56 pm at 1:56 pm #2099320Reb EliezerParticipant
There is two kinds of inflation, demand pull and cost push. Demand pull happens when supply does not catch up with the demand. Possibly, there is too much money in the hand of the people and the demand is greater than the supply, whereas cost push is where the expenses go up and they must be recovered by raising the price.June 22, 2022 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #2099457

Very creative. Every Dem’s solution (to the problems they created) is to spend down something. Why not encourage people to work/ to produce? Why not encourage domestic oil & gas production at the same time as all green energy and deal with Russia first and global warming second?June 23, 2022 11:54 am at 11:54 am #2099613
So you certainly respect Fed Chairman Powell, who in response to a direct question yesterday threw Brandon under the bus and said, “No, inflation was high before the war in Ukraine broke out”.June 23, 2022 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #2099672
> said, “No, inflation was high before the war in Ukraine broke out”.
why do we need expert opinions when we have facts? Just look up inflation plot and dates when war started.June 23, 2022 4:02 pm at 4:02 pm #2099703
“No, inflation was high before the war in Ukraine broke out”.
Exactly. So what did Powell do the past year and a half to help lower the rate of inflation?June 23, 2022 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm #2099735
Same as Brandon; absolutely nothing!June 23, 2022 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #2099754
Do you know the difference between the Fed and POTUS?June 23, 2022 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #2099812anonymous JewParticipant
Biden must have thought Powell did a good job because he recently reappointed him to another termJune 23, 2022 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #2099839
anon, it is Trump’s fault. He appointed Powell. Biden was not expected to do better, say thank you that he resisted appointing a diversity socialist that his team wanted.June 23, 2022 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #2099836
I most certainly do but I think it’s hilarious that while Brandon is blaming inflation on Putin, Powell is contradicting him in Congressional testimony.
