Comic: Inflation

This comic was inspired by finding a receipt from just two years before and realizing just how awful inflation had become under Joe Biden (sorry, my Democratic friends, but it's true).  You can argue until you're "blue" in the face that it's not his fault, but his economic policies are generally not helpful to the average person or to America or the world overall.  I am generally not fond of Milton Friedman, but he had at least one great idea, typified in this quote:  "One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results."  Even if one has good intentions, one's actions can still create a negative outcome if they haven't been fully thought through as to the consequences, often unintended.  I wrote an earlier comic about the lowering of the 1099-K reporting threshold, which is a good example of a bad Biden policy.  Nothing's been done to remedy it yet, and time is running out.  It's like Biden doesn't even have enough sense to help himself out.  He's running for reelection, and right now if Congress doesn't pass a remedy (and the Republicans in the House may drag their feet into 2024 just to mess with Biden) he's going to start off the election year by pissing off millions of taxpayers (many of whom might be otherwise inclined to vote for him) with a surprise 1099-K and unexpected tax bill and hassle.  At this point, it would be a relief just to have the conman back in office and be back in pre-virus panic 2020, even if that wasn't an ideal time in and of itself.  Anyhoo, let's get to the comic before prices rise again.  To read the comic, I suggest clicking on the image and making it full screen.  You could also download it after you click on it for the primo view, I suppose.  I've also loaded the panels individually below if you like scrolling down (it works either way).

For more fun (albeit words, not pictures), read one of my novels, such as the latest, Fast Guy Slows Down!
