3. republicans love inflation
because it changes the value of the dollar, and with a less valuable dollar the value of our debt (and the cost to pay it back) decreases.

Even small upticks in the inflation index create savings of billions on our foreign held debt.

Make no mistake, it is being manipulated, and like tax breaks for the wealthy and supreme court rulings on republican presidential candidates, they plan on pulling the ladder up behind them.
