Jen Psaki Blames Texas Gov for Rising Prices

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Always looking for someone to blame for their own failings, White House press secretary Jen Psaki found a new scapegoat for rising costs in Greg Abbott, Republican governor of Texas.

In response to the upcoming repeal of Title 42, Abbott ordered state troopers to conduct additional inspections of commercial trucks coming into the United States via the southern border, the Daily Wire reported.

Law enforcement based at the border are bracing for an increased flow of up to 18,000 migrants per day coming into the states.

Psaki chastized Abbott for attempting to secure the border—a task originally given to Vice President Kamala Harris—and blamed him for rising prices across the country.

“Governor Abbott’s unnecessary and redundant inspections of trucks transiting ports of entry between Texas and Mexico are causing significant disruptions to the food and automobile supply chains, delaying manufacturing, impacting jobs, and raising prices for families in Texas and across the country,” Psaki said in a statement.

“Local businesses and trade associations are calling on Governor Abbott to reverse this decision because trucks are facing lengthy delays exceeding 5 hours at some border crossings and commercial traffic has dropped by as much as 60 percent,” she bleated.

“The continuous flow of legitimate trade and travel and CBP’s ability to do its job should not be obstructed. Governor Abbott’s actions are impacting people’s jobs, and the livelihoods of hardworking American families.”

Psaki is not the only left-wing Biden staffer to pin issues of the administration’s creation on Republican politicians.

Last week on “The View,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said that by passing the colloquially and wrongly known “Don’t Say Gay” bill, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is killing kids.

Buttigeig also blamed DeSantis for not solving problems that fall under his purview:

“By the way, some of those political reasons (laughs), they don’t have a plan on anything else, right? I mean, [DeSantis] doesn’t have a plan on dealing with inflation or dealing with gas prices or dealing with the issues.”
