That "transitory" inflation just hit the highest level since 1981

Published in Blog on April 12, 2022 by Article V Patriot

Remember that "transitory" inflation we were all told not to worry about?

"Experts" at institutions like the Wall Street Journal the Financial Times and the Federal Reserve assured concerned Americans that rising prices would soon level off and go down. Inflation wasn't caused by terrible federal policy, they said. It was simply the result of "supply chain bottlenecks" and "corporate greed."

Once COVID restrictions eased, everything would be getting back to normal.

Well, as everyday Americans have realized every time they go to the grocery story, pay their electricity bill, or go out to eat, inflation is definitely not going away.

In fact, the Consumer Price Index is at its highest level since 1981, according to the Department of Labor. The CPI is 8.5% higher than last year, a massive jump not seen since the late 1970s and early 1980s.

“Price increases came from many of the usual culprits,” CNBC reported. “Food rose 1% for the month and 8.8% over the year. Energy prices were up 11% and 32% respectively, while shelter cost, which make up about one-third of the CPI weighting, increased another 0.5% on the month, making the 12-month gain a blistering 5%.”

To make matters worse, the trend line is going in the wrong direction, according to the Daily Wire. Here's the monthly inflation for every month of the Biden administration:

  • January 2021 — 1.4%
  • February — 1.7%
  • March — 2.6%
  • April — 4.2%
  • May — 5.0%
  • June — 5.4%
  • July — 5.4%
  • August — 5.3%
  • September — 5.4%
  • October — 6.2%
  • November — 6.8%
  • December — 7.0%
  • January 2022 — 7.5%
  • February — 7.9%
  • March — 8.5%

Inflation is real, it's here to stay, and it's Joe Biden's fault. Biden pumped money into an already recovering economy in a misguided attempt to "transform" the American economy. 

He transformed it all right. What should be a strong economy with low interest rates, low unemployment, and low inflation (as it was during the Trump administration) is an inflation-plagued economy that's risking a massive recession.

We can't do much to stave off the coming economic woes, but we can make sure that the federal government never again tanks our economy.

An Article V Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can limit the ability of federal regulators to meddle in the economy, force Congress to be fiscally responsible, and limit the federal government's spending.

With this package of amendments in place, the president will no longer be able to destroy our economy. Other factors might still cause trouble, but those will be the result of free market competition, not bad policy coming out of Washington.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
