Under the Biden regime, Americans have to put up with brutal levels of inflation. Loose monetary policies and number of regulations that have impeded businesses’ ability to provide goods and services on the market.
As a result, there are shortages across the nation when it comes to basic goods and services. And when people can find said goods and services, they’re often at much higher prices.
Louisiana Senator John Kennedy has caught up on this. Kennedy posted a video on April 12, 2022 showcasing how the price of beef has increased by 15% since February 2021.
He tweeted, “Where’s the beef?
Americans are asking because they can’t afford it in Biden’s America.”

The PRIME (Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption) Act would allow for small farms and ranches to more easily serve consumers. Massie introduced this legislation last summer. A companion bill was introduced in the US Senate by Maine Senator Angus King and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. Under the PRIME Act, individual states would be allowed to facilitate the “intrastate distribution of custom-slaughtered meat such as beef, pork, or lamb to consumers, restaurants, hotels, boarding houses, and grocery stores,” per a press release from the office of Maine Congresswoman Chellie Pingree.
When he introduced this bill last year, Massie said “Consumers want to know where their food comes from, what it contains, and how it’s processed. Yet, federal inspection requirements make it difficult to purchase food from trusted, local farmers.” Massie added, “It is time to open our markets to give producers the freedom to succeed and consumers the freedom to choose.”
People must understand that the troubling economic developments Americans are currently facing are not the product of free markets or greedy politicians. They’re the result of bad government policies — easy money and a bloated regulatory state.
The quicker Americans realize, the easier it will be to stabilize the American economy through wide scale deregulation and the introduction of competing currencies.
