On Tuesday night, Rep. Louie Gohmert appeared on Newsmax and warned that Joe Biden's economy and rising inflation is causing the American dollar to be "worth less."
''The consumer price index shot up. People are paying much more,'' Gohmert explained. ''The first seven months of this administration, people have seen their money worth less and buying less.''
''Obama and Biden talked about ‘we got to tax the rich,' just like he's doing now, and who suffered? The lower-income, the fixed income, the lower middle class,'' he continued. ''That's who he really hit the hardest in the Obama administration, and we are already seeing it happening in the first months of this administration.''
Only 235,000 jobs were added in August, far fewer than the 700,000 predicted when the latest Department of Labor report came out last week.
''The labor market recovery hit the brakes this month with a dramatic showdown in all industries,'' Daniel Zhao, senior economist at the jobs website Glassdoor,told CNBC. ''Ultimately, the delta variant wave is a harsh reminder that the pandemic is still in the driver's seat, and it controls our economic future.''
According to that report, the job gains were the worst since Biden took office in January and are being blamed on the recent surge of COVID-19 throughout the nation.
The article said that the Federal Reserve also viewed the report dimly as it weighs pulling back on stimulus money it has been pumping into the system since the pandemic began last year.
''The weaker employment activity is likely both a demand and supply story — companies paused hiring in the face of weaker demand and uncertainty about the future while workers withdrew due to health concerns,'' Bank of America economist Joseph Song said in a note to clients.
Gohmert warned that the rise in inflation is hurting Americans.
''We just saw House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pass a ridiculous bill, a rule that provided $3.5 trillion that so many of the Democrats said they couldn't support, but they voted for it,'' he cadded. ''So they expect Pelosi will make threats to get all Democrats in the House to vote, but the key will be if Republicans stay united against it.''

Sen. Cruz: 'Pelosi is Drunk on Power' - Probably Vodka Too
On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the Senate floor, declaring that she is drunk on power with her new mask mandates. Power isn't the only thing she is drunk on...I'd say there is some vodka in the mix too.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts, absolutely.
