Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is trying to put on a brave face ahead of the critical midterms but her approach to inflation only spells doom for the Democrats.
The momentum going into the elections has swung to the Republicans because Democrat President Joe Biden and his team sat back and watched inflation cripple America.
Tackling the economy is the top priority for most voters, even if the Democrats refuse to admit it.
However, Pelosi’s plan for tackling inflation is to just “message it better” until the midterms.
That approach will surely backfire in November.
“Inflation’s an issue, but it’s global,” Pelosi said on MSNBC.
“It’s global. What’s the Republicans’ plan?
“They ain’t got nothing,” she claimed.
“When you bring down unemployment, inflation goes up.
“So in any case, President Biden brought unemployment down, cut it in half.
“Inflation is there but it’s global and not as bad as it is in some countries.
“We’ll have to message it better in the next three weeks ahead.
“I think we’re in great shape.
“Other people don’t want to believe that.”
“We’re going to win this election so I don’t even entertain that notion.
“But it should be of concern to the Republicans.
“The battle for control of the House is one race at a time.
“We’re not running for president.
“We’re running one race at a time.
“All these pundits in Washington – a year and a half of you guys were saying ‘You can’t win….History says.
“And we’re like ‘What do you mean about history says?’ We’re talking about the future.’
“We’ll have enough money.
“But our members have much more and they can buy TV time at a cheaper rate.
“I do think that when we win, we have to pass the bill that reduces the impact of that big, dark money because it just chokes and suffocates the airwaves.
“And that’s what they’re doing with their lies,” she said.

I love MSNBC and @mitchellreports's idea of a challenging question to Nancy Pelosi:
You and Joe Biden and your fellow Dems have done *so much* for the American people – an absolutely extraordinary record of accomplishment.
Why don't these ingrates appreciate it more? https://t.co/AynxdSoI73

As the guy who put @msnbc on the map, I'd like to apologize to @SpeakerPelosi for the fact that @AndreaMitchell no longer understands Biden couldn't "push" to get 10 GOP VOTES to codify Roe.
And I apologize to the viewers for Andrea.
She needs to retire. pic.twitter.com/aXWNJOljso
