    Press Release:

    Good afternoon,

    Americans aren't merry about the skyrocketing price of Christmas under Bidenflation.

    According to Mintec's US Christmas Dinner Index, Americans are paying 15.4% more for Christmas dinner this year than last year, a "record high" increase. As noted by the USDA , inflation is driving up prices for groceries "across the board."

    And who feels those impacts the most? Lower-income Americans.

    A new AP-NORC poll found that 4 in 10 Americans say inflation is "having a major impact" on their finances, with the hardest effects felt by the poorest Americans. A recent Gallup poll found 71% of households making less than $40,000 are experiencing financial hardship due to Biden's hidden inflation tax.

    The Associated Press spoke with families struggling under Biden's reckless policies:

  • Emarilis Velazquez from Boardman, Ohio: "It's stressful...You want to give it all to your kids, even though (Christmas) is about family. They still expect things. It is hard that you can't give them what they ask for."
  • Jason Bautista who runs a food pantry in Oakland, California: "Families that would normally go to Safeway can't afford to with their fixed incomes ... Their dollar is not stretching."
  • Miriam Canales, who relies on a food pantry to feed her family, said higher food prices are effecting her finances, and that she won't be buying any presents for her children this year.

    This Christmas, Biden's inflation tax is hitting Americans hard. Biden is not empowering workers, he is making all Americans poorer.

    "With prices surging on just about everything - from from gas to groceries to diapers - North Carolina families and small businesses are feeling the squeeze of inflation this holiday season. Thanks to Biden's hidden $3,500 tax, Christmas will be costly for low-income North Carolinians who can least afford it."- RNC Spokeswoman Alex Nolley
