The Democrats on the Hill who make $170K+/yr in salaries plus stipends, free travel, and per diem do not seem to think there is any inflation in the US.Well maybe making that much money and getting the freebies from taxpayers takes some of the burden off the wallet, but where I live a single can of coke is no longer $.50 but around $1. The value meals at restaurants do not include a drink any longer for the “Value” you were looking for. That costs extra now, and some places are even charging for refills. I am no financial expert, but you don’t charge for refills because things are great, and the dollar is really strong. You charge for refills when someone is paying with Monopoly $. This cartoon really tells the truth these days… Iran holds the cards with OPEC and for some reason the US thinks our dollar should mean something.
