White House Chief of Staff Thinks Inflation And Supply Chain Issues Are “High Class” Problems

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain quote tweeted a tweet from former President Obama’s Economic Advisor Jason Furman, which claimed that inflation and other economic problems facing Americans are “high-class problems.

That is just simply WRONG! 

Inflation is a tax on all Americans, and it has gone up every month of Joe Biden’s presidency.

With tweets like this from the White House Chief of Staff, it is not surprising that the majority of Americans feel that the White House staff is incompetent.
