With high prices, insurance premiums, home costs and drugs going higher every month, he sits at his desk reading a prepared script, having no idea how bad it really is out there.
Mr. President, go shopping, buy gas, look at the stock market and see how well your inflation recovery act is really doing!

Republican leaders also responsible for fractured party
Who is to blame for fracturing the Republican party? It is easy to blame Donald Trump and his followers.
Republican legislators are responsible, too. Following the January 6 attack upon the capitol, many Republican legislators said enough was enough. Trump had gone too far. The behavior was unlawful. Privately, they agreed Trump lost the election.
By the next morning, their stance changed dramatically. Fear of retribution, which they believed would cause them to lose power, decided their positions rather than their sworn duty to serve our country. If they had told the truth about Trump and stood together decrying the unlawful behavior and convicting Trump of impeachment, the Republican party could have earned the respect of the American people.
None of the issues facing them today would be on the table. The only way to deal with bullies is to stand up to the truth. If only.
