Under Democrat President Joe Biden’s economy, the number of Americans suffering from hunger and food insecurity has soared by a whopping 10 million people.
The impact of Biden’s so-called “Bidenomics” was revealed in a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) report.
The report provides fresh evidence of the impact of inflation on a basic staple of life.
The report found 44.2 million Americans were living in food-insecure households in 2022.
The figure was up from 33.8 million the year before.
The USDA reported:
“From 2021 to 2022, there were statistically significant increases in food insecurity and very low food security for nearly all subgroups of households described in this report.”
Officials noted that economics is a key factor that’s causing food insecurity.
They noted that cost particularly plays a role in the high-inflation economy.
“In 2022, the typical food-secure household spent 15 percent more on food than the typical food-insecure household of the same size and household composition,” the report noted.

Meanwhile, Biden has been touring the country to gaslight the public by boasting that his Bidenomics plan has been a success.
The White House still insists that the plan is working even as poverty and now hunger have skyrocketed on Biden’s watch.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said the new report is a major cause for alarm.
In a statement about the report, Vilsack said:
“These findings are unacceptable, yet the report is the latest piece of evidence that as the pandemic began to wane in 2022, another public health concern — food insecurity— increased.”
The food insecurity report comes a few weeks after the Census Bureau reported that poverty made the fastest rise in a half century under Biden.
15.3 million more Americans have fallen below the poverty level since Biden entered the White House.
Both reports stressed that children were among the hardest hit in the trends on hunger and poverty.
