“We would like to have a child”, but “we have to postpone it”

Americans are suffering from President Joe Biden’s skyrocketing inflation, forcing them to make tough choices that their parents didn’t have to make.

“Together we make $75,000. That’s more than my parents earned in my entire life,” Delaney Claycomb told The New York Post about her husband, noting that her parents’ home near Atlanta cost $98,000 in 1998. “Now in that area you can’t even find a broken down trailer for that price.” It’s not Los Angeles.

“We looked for flats close to my work so we didn’t have to drive 30 or 40 miles a day, but we couldn’t afford it. We got the cheapest apartment we could find,” Claycomb added. “We would like to have a child, buy a house and land, but we have to postpone it.”

Housing costs are just one aspect of Biden’s inflation. Over the past 12 months, food prices have risen 13.5%, despite claims by established media that inflation fell in August, according to the Consumer Price Index released this week.

Briana Howard, who is a mother and wife, told the Job his family struggles to buy $10 worth of grapes at the store. “We’re your typical average middle-income American family,” she said, adding, “We’re more grocery-conscious … It’s like, ‘What do we have a coupon for?’ I thoughtlessly picked up a $10 bag of grapes, not something I can go on doing.

Yet other Americans are struggling to pay their energy bills. And winter isn’t even here yet. “I see my electricity bill over $300 a month from $200 before,” said Hakeem Joseph. “I don’t feel like I’m using any more AC than I did last year.”
