Credit card debt surged in the United States from April through June as Americans borrowed billions of dollars to continue spending in the face of growing inflation, according to a Tuesday report from Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Adding debt when interest rates are increasing. President Biden is doing the same by adding more debt nationally.


Silver lining? Other Americans are slowing their spending and some prices are decreasing. Some food prices are declining, and clothing too.

One example? Ranchers who can't afford to feed their cattle herds in drought striken states are sending their herds to slaughterhouses earlier. This is lowering the price of beef.

I just heard the price of beef is going up…. Maybe Biden can completely drain our strategic reserves and drop fuel prices another quarter. You just have to love a guy who sacrifices others to save his own half dead skin.
