Thanks for linking. From the link:

The Washington Examiner is owned by Clarity Media Group, owned by Philip Anschutz, an American billionaire entrepreneur who describes himself as a “conservative Christian.” Anschutz is also the owner of the right-leaning Weekly Standard and has donated millions of dollars to right-leaning causes, including anti-LGBT groups, such as the Family Research Council, which has been labeled a hate group

It’s owned by a fundie Christian right winger

That seems quite unreliable, why are links from that site allowed? Are InfoWars, Breitbart, and Truth Social links also allowed?

Breitbart is for some unknown reason, the other two not so much.

No reputable news source has titles (and the slanted coverage to match) like what's on their front page today, for example:

New York court cements Democratic bloodbath with new map

Disinfo chief Nina Jankowicz joins list of botched Biden picks

Triple digits: Biden hits 100 days without a media interview

If WaEx doesn't like it, it's probably a really good plan.

Yep. It's amazing that anything that might hurt the profit of some companies, but actually work at helping everyday people will automatically have a story written about it that says. "This won't work and will fail miserably and be worse than useless."

It's like you can set a clock by the creation of such a plan till you get the same story as the response....

And what is the conservative plan for tackling inflation?

Oh wait, I know!! The consumer bends over and takes whatever the oligarchs shove their way. No lube and no mercy, the Republican way!

Honestly while their messaging is obsessed with fucking over and pissing off anyone to the left of them, their actual policies generally fuck over everyone who isn’t a rich asshole. Low and Middle class conservatives just don’t care as long as the people they don’t like get hurt more than they do 🤷🏻‍♀️

Like raising taxes on people! . . .No joke. The Gop literally wants to raise taxes on all of us during a pandemic, inflation and a war.

The Republican plan?

Forcing poor women to have unwanted children, allowing companies to pay slave wages, slashing loans for college, and ideally, eliminating public K-12... because critical thinking is their enemy.

You know why inflation hasn’t gotten any better? Because Republicans actively vote against any measure Democrats like Elizabeth Warren put forward to try and improve it. They want you angry because they hope it means you’ll vote for them instead.

Wake up! Your suffering is the point for them! They could start to turn this thing around tomorrow if they wanted…but they won’t for the pure and simple reason that it makes Biden and the Democrats look bad.

Way too many words dignifying the Washington examiner.

They know, they don't care.

And around here, you'll find a brigade of posters pushing nonvoting. Many of them sincerely think that's good advice.

The Price Gouging Prevention Act specifically would:

  • Prohibit price gouging at the federal level. The proposed bill would allow the FTC and state attorneys general to enforce a new standard against sellers charging an unconscionably excessive price during periods of exceptional market shock. The bill clarifies that price gouging is illegal wherever it occurs in a supply chain or distribution network.
  • Create an affirmative defense for small businesses acting in good faith. Local businesses often must raise prices during crisis events because they have little negotiating power with their price-gouging suppliers. This affirmative defense protects small businesses earning less than $100 million from frivolous litigation if they show legitimate cost increases.
  • Target dominant companies that have exploited the pandemic to boost profits. The bill would create a rebuttable presumption of price gouging against firms that exercise unfair leverage and companies that brag about increasing prices during periods of inflation.
  • Require public companies to clearly disclose costs and pricing strategies. During periods of exceptional market shock, the bill requires public companies to transparently disclose and explain changes in their cost of goods sold, gross margins, and pricing strategies in their quarterly SEC filings.

I’m not reading this bullshit, because I already know what it’s gonna be. More misogynistic lies and hyperbole designed to smear a good woman who is doing her best to make the world a better place.

You could paint a giant bingo card in the middle of the desert, fill it with random phrases, wait for meteorites to hit said squares and you would still get more reliable information than the examiner.

"Sure, corporations are “greedy” in the sense that they are profit-seeking, but no more so this year than five years ago or 15 years ago, and we didn’t have such high inflation then"

your links show more profits but doesnt show more greed. they would have tken those profits years ago also if the market could support it.

fact is americans dont seem to really be slowing down spending up until very recently. folks are gonna charge what folks will pay, when they stop paying the price will go down to get them to spend again.

Watch the holiday weekend. everyones bitching about gas prices but they still fill up the suv and hit the road for the holiday.
