Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has been a member of the House of Representatives for almost a year now, and yet she hasn’t accomplished a damn thing other than a few snarky tweets, a lot of posturing, and the occasional attempt at pretending she should be taken seriously.
Such is the case with a tweet Boebert (a.k.a. Bobo) sent out on the topic of inflation, which is indeed on the rise, due in large part to the pent up demand of consumers who stayed home for over a year during the worst of the COVID pandemic and are now on a spending spree. Increased demand leads to a rise in prices. It’s the basics of economics: Supply and demand.
But rather than provide any solutions, Boebert fired off this brainless post:
So Bobo is worried about the troops? Then why doesn’t she propose legislation that would raise their salaries? Because that would require her to do some work, and all she really wants to do is whine and try to score political points.
Boebert also neglected to mention that the Biden administration has done something to help every American family with children in the form of the expanded child tax credit, which is providing $250 to $300 per child for working parents across the country. Would Boebert be in favor of extending that tax break? Hardly! Her party has been the one fighting to do away with the child tax credit since it went into place.
The congresswoman was quickly swatted down on social media:

Math is hard, huh Boo?
Inflation is temporary, their raise is permanent.

🎯 there are pros and cons to a booming economy and there's nothing unique about troops also feeling the effects of inflation, something we're ALL experiencing. On the flip side, home prices, wages & the markets are way up making people $$$, and unemployment is at record lows.— Norrin Radd (@NorrinR06303580) December 31, 2021
