President Biden snapped during a speaking event Friday afternoon when discussing inflation, saying he’s “sick” of Americans saying government spending results in higher prices for goods and services.
“I’m sick of this stuff … the American people think the reason for inflation is government spending more money. Simply not true!”
The consumer price index rose by 7.9% in February compared to the same period last year, the biggest 12-month surge since January 1982.

President Biden: "Make no mistake, inflation is largely the fault of Putin. I love Republicans saying it's Biden's gas pipeline. Biden said he's going to stop the Keystone pipeline, and I did, and that's the reason prices went up. […] Give me a break." https://t.co/zJ9RzYXhd2 pic.twitter.com/nolD6cc3H1— The Hill (@thehill) March 12, 2022
