Bacon Up 21 Percent Annually: Bidenflation Problems
Breakfast is more expensive this month — worst of all, the cost of bacon — thanks to President Biden’s policies.
Using data from the Department of Labor, the prices of nearly all items in the most important meal of the day have dramatically risen over the last year by 6.8 percent, the highest level since 1982.
“Price increases continue to squeeze family budgets,” Biden said. “We are making progress on pandemic-related challenges to our supply chain which make it more expensive to get goods on shelves, and I expect more progress on that in the weeks ahead.”
Below is a highlight of the increases, via Breitbart:
- Breakfast cereals prices jumped 3.3 percent in November and are up 4.5 percent compared with a year ago.
- Whole milk prices are up 6.6 percent compared with a year ago and jumped 1.4 percent compared with October.

Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH) called the inflation “unsustainable” in a tweet:
“Bidenflation is driving up costs for everyday goods for families who can’t afford it,” Gibbs said. “We have to stop the out-of-control socialist spending causing it.”
