Despite recent polls showing that an overwhelming majority of Americans are concerned about inflation, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed on Sunday that inflation is not “the fight,” and if someone tells you that it is, you need to change the subject.
As BizPac Review reported earlier this month, a Politico/Morning Consult poll recently found that “Americans are expressing deep pessimism about the economy and rising inflation, a bad sign for Democrats as they head into the final decisive weeks of the 2022 midterm election campaign.”
“More than 90 percent of voters are concerned about the U.S. economy and inflation,” Politico continued. “Party affiliation did matter when it came to ranking the economy a top issue impacting who they’ll vote for this November.”

Pelosi must not have gotten the memo.
Speaking on CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” Pelosi explained that inflation can’t be a thing with voters, because England’s inflation is worse.
“The fact is, is that when I hear people talk about inflation…we have to change that subject. Inflation is a global phenomenon,” she said. “The EU — the European Union — the UK — the British have higher inflation than we do here.”
“It’s not — the fight is not about inflation,” she said. “It’s about the cost of living.”

In the world of mental gymnastics, it was a landing Pelosi could not stick.
“Isn’t the high cost of living directly due to inflation?!” exclaimed one user on Twitter.
“Must be nice to be wealthy and privileged enough that she doesn’t feel the impact of inflation,” said another. “This woman has no care whatsoever for low and middle income Americans.”
“How’s that for changing the topic Nancy?” the user asked.

Meanwhile, despite the Biden administration’s attempt to use TikTok influencers to rally support for its agendas and regardless of student loan forgiveness, Senator Bernie Sanders (I – Vt.) is “worried” that young Democrats and “working people” won’t show up for the midterms.
Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Sanders confessed, “Well, I am worried about the level of voter turnout among young people and working people who will be voting Democratic.”
“And I think, again, what Democrats have got to do is contrast their economic plan with the Republicans,” he continued. “What are the Republicans talking about? They want to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid at a time when millions of seniors are struggling to pay their bills. Do you think that’s what we should be doing? Democrats should take that to them.”
Online, both Sanders and CNN were torched by the left for suggesting Democrats may be in some trouble and trolled by the right, who noted that young people are “seeing through” the party’s failed policies.
“Young people aren’t voting Democrat anymore,” tweeted one user. “They’re seeing through you now.”
“He’s part of the problem,” claimed another, “he’s not a democrat and his opinion means nothing.”
“CNN’s favorite go-to-Democrat who is in fact not a Democrat, Bernie Sanders,” quipped a third.
Another user had a different take.
Young voters may not show up, but it’s not because Democrats’ policies have failed, it’s because they were too successful.
“They are happily at home on their couches drawing welfare checks @BernieSanders,” the user surmised.
Young people aren’t voting Democrat anymore. They’re seeing through you now.

He’s part of the problem, he’s not a democrat and his opinion means nothing.
