Would they lie about it? Of course they would lie about like they lie about most things. If inflation was figured the same way now as under Carter we would be at a 9%-10% rate. They took fuel and food from the old calculations and try to compare current and past inflation. Same trick they use to tout their "Global Warming" lie. Comparing Apples and Oranges.
Now math has NEVER been my subject. But even I can tell this is complete and utter BS. Where are all the Jobs? Businesses in my city are closing on a daily basis and NO NEW businesses are opening (except for an occasional McDonalds). My son and none of his friends can find full time jobs. The ones that have jobs are part time, just a couple hours a week. This president is doing NOTHING to create jobs, he is the lamest of ducks! No one believes a liar once exposed. This idiot needs to go!
