During a recent appearance on “Rob Schmitt Tonight,” Dr. Ben Carson openly called out the Biden administration’s apparent ambivalence towards American consumers, given the bizarre priorities that the White House chooses to focus on.
Such priorities include nonstop, borderline obsessive directives regarding transgenderism, which constitutes yet another executive order recently signed.
Unfortunately, few of the White House’s priorities pertain to everyday Americans’ daily needs, which is especially clear in Carson’s commentary.
The retired neurosurgeon blasted the Biden administration for eschewing “logical thinking” in terms of resolving serious economic crises, especially given its “my way or the highway” approach.
This approach is especially telling given that Biden campaigned on alleged unity between warring political factions.
However, “[being] able to work together” is a critically important component of success, as noted by Carson.
“You have to stop making excuses,” Carson urged.
As the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Trump administration, Carson is acutely aware of logical measures to take and not take with regards to combatting inflation, and one of the most significant measures includes demonstrating accountability.
Noting that inflation is “never going to stop” until the administration owns up to “what caused all this,” Carson noted that several measures being taken now are too little, too late.
For instance, the Biden White House is making an effort to stem rapidly rising inflation “by raising interest rates,” though “the horse is out of the barn already.”
Even worse, the Biden administration continues to lay the blame on virtually every other factor and entity but themselves, with Russian President Vladimir Putin serving as a long-time, preferred culprit for Democrats eager for a scapegoat.
Not all members of Biden’s team have been completely without accountability, as Treasury Secretary admitting that she had been wrong about the “transitory” nature of inflation.
With time, it is hoped that the White House will demonstrate the same honesty illustrated by Yellen.
