President Biden’s economy is so bad that the Wall Street Journal is recommending skipping breakfast to save money for those struggling to cope.
Remember when you were little and your mother used to send you to school? But not before breakfast. Why? Because it was ‘the most important meal of the day.’
Not anymore, thanks to Bidenomics.
Tuesday’s Journal ran a headline that read: “To Save Money, Maybe You Should Skip Breakfast.”
The column outlines how the prices of several breakfast staples have skyrocketed and is quick to point the finger of blame at bad weather — because it’s never happened before — bird flu and, of course, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Inflation is higher than expected
The Wall Street Journal’s breakfast column was published on the same day that the latest inflation report indicated more woes for the American people.
January was ‘hotter’ than expected at 6.4%, as inflation rose 0.5% month-on-month.
Fear not, farmer. Dramatic price increases are off the charts only for certain items … such as the necessities of life.
Food increased by 10.1%, shelter increased by 7.9%, and energy increased by 8.7% But who needs these little things?

President Biden looks at those numbers and thinks — good stuff, Jack.
“We have more to do, but here in the country, inflation is coming down,” he said during his State of the Union speech, a week before inflation rebounded.
“Here at home, gas prices are down $1.50 a gallon from their peak. Food inflation is slowing. Inflation has fallen every month for the past six months, while take-home pay has risen,” Biden added.
- Gas prices are significantly higher since Biden took office. The ‘peak’ he mentions is in his eye and is an arbitrary measuring point.
- As mentioned above, food inflation has not come down.
- Take-home pay is being killed by inflation – year-on-year real wages have now been negative for 22 months in a row.
Why stop breakfast? If you never eat, you’ll basically be a millionaire.

Wall Street Journal – Who needs breakfast?
The Wall Street Journal’s advice to skip breakfast is a natural extension of President Biden’s own advice. You know, to just go out and start buying generic resin bran – no joke!
“You’re going to see people not buying Kellogg’s Raisin Bran. You’re going to see them buy other raisin bran, which is going to be a dollar cheaper,” Biden predicted several months ago.
Did it take no time to go from ‘just cheap raisin bran’ to ‘raisin bran’? Who needs Raisin Bran?’
Joe Biden suggested record food price hikes aren’t such a big deal because “you’re going to see [people] Buying other raisin bran.” pic.twitter.com/t2yIywINvD

In case you’re wondering, The Wall Street Journal and President Biden advising you not to eat junk breakfast isn’t a new idea. The media and Democrats have been advising people struggling with money to make concessions throughout this presidency.
This past Thanksgiving, Bloomberg News reported that families may want to consider replacing their traditional turkey with lighter meal items such as soup, salad or even pizza.
Thanksgiving dinners will be more expensive this year as the cost of turkey, bread and cookies in the US rises, adding to historic inflation https://t.co/0zVQJNgXud

Former Democrat Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY) advises struggling families to tighten their finances and start eating Chef Boardi.
According to @spmaloney, Hudson Valley residents struggling to keep gas in their tanks and food on their tables should eat Chef Boyardi! I have a good idea — let’s fire Sean Maloney and lower inflation so New Yorkers can live here and eat what they want. pic.twitter.com/NYzXsVyVTM

Bloomberg, again last year, came to Biden’s defense, telling Americans to suck it up and switch their diets from meat to vegetables. Let them eat lentils!
Inflation is highest if you make less than $300K. Here’s how to deal:
➡️ Get on the bus
➡️ Don’t buy in bulk
➡️ Try eating lentils instead of meat
➡️ No one said it would be fun https://t.co/HGJEoXL5ZZ

Oh, and who does it affect the most? Seniors.
per The New York TimesMillions of seniors can’t afford enough food because Social Security fails to keep up Inflation And grocery prices rose 11.3%.
It’s not hard to see why Americans are still depressed about the economy when you look at the latest inflation report:
Grocery +11.3% last year
Natural Gas +26.7%
Vehicle Insurance +14.7%
Pet Services +8.4%

It’s pretty easy to see from the numbers why seniors are struggling. Along with the rest of America.
How long will it be before lunch and dinner are completely cut off in this economy?
