    Why do i have this feeling that this so called inflation is only affecting the ill informed Americans,  I've been reading up on recession and the market, apparently both bull and bear market condition provides equal avenue to accrue massive gains, and a news article particularly mention a 32 year old that made $180k in 5weeks, how do I learn and apply these strategies, my portfolio has been stagnant for months.

    Im voting republican on all midterm candidates for the first time in my life. You were all right and im so sorry the left media brainwashed me.

    We will only escape all of these problems when people start admitting and realizing that it was all done intentionally.

    NO American should ever forget that we were essentially both energy independent and a net energy exporter just 18 months ago..... 😎

    This is the first time in my life that I actually consider the cost of gas on whether I take a trip in town or not. I'm not poor, but the times I actually start up my truck have dramatically dropped because most of the time I decide it isn't worth the cost of gas to go somewhere. Same with eating out. I'm sure I'm not alone. This is certain to further damage the economy in the long run.

    My father was a son of a German farmer. He’s been dead for a while now. He one time said to me that the problem with the people in this country is they don’t know the difference between want and need. I think they’re going to start learning the difference pretty soon.

    The most dangerous aspect of our current situation is the incompetence of our entire government.

    I will forever be indebted to you 😇you’ve changed my whole life I’ll continue to preach about your name for the world to hear you’ve saved me from a huge financial debt with just little investment thanks so much Mrs valerie w scot

    Also keep in mind, inflation is another form of taxation, and it makes the rich, richer and the poor, poorer.

    I don't think folks have to wait till the forth of July to figure out it's costing them a lot more money to fuel up and buy food.

    Success depends on the actions or steps you take to achieve it. Show me a man with no investment and i will tell you how long it takes to fail. The investment creates a safe haven for the future, with the right investment choice that has at least a minimum risk of 2% and with Expert advice, both profits and interest are 100% Guaranteed
  • You'll really hear things when people start getting layed off. Imagine being layed off, having no savings, during 12% inflation and gas prices $5.00/gal.

    Let's go Brandon! And the media for helping him win the election!
  • Mark Wayne
    Sadly this economic crisis means more inflation and more inflation affects the banking system. My condolences to anyone retiring this year..

    In ALL of my 81 years, I have never seen this country in our current overall shape!! Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see our country so divided and with no middle ground!! Never have I seen this level of outright lawlessness with nothing being done to stop it!! I never imagined that our southern borders, there to protect this country literally being destroyed and overrun..I saw this with my own eyes. On that day, I saw about 15 men walking down a railroad track (in south Texas), going north, caring 1 gallon water plastic jugs each and a kind of home made back pack!!!! So, what are we doing to fix any of this stuff??? Nothing!! This administration is as flat as a pancake and absolutely doing nothing constructive it seems!! It is as if they are trying to harm America for some reason, but why?? Absolutely incredible failure!!
  • People who grocery shop without looking at prices and finding out it's expensive at the register are people who don't worry about inflation.
  • Laura
    People trying to retire, seniors on a fixed income, young families with insane daycare costs, people with chronic illness, people with lower socioeconomic status…. This is affecting us all. Unless you’re the Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk of the world, we’re all just trying to make ends meet. Like other posters have said, we’re getting by. But not getting ahead. 😔

    Pretty sure any Middle class American already knows they can't afford higher prices.
    Like... seriously. 4th of July won't be any different.
    I can almost guarantee you that the wealthy segment of the US is doing just fine. Someone always makes out during these difficult financial times. Just do some reasearch on past financial dips in the US. You'll see. the Difficulty always hits the rest of society the hardest.
