“The President’s Economic Plan is Indeed Working” – Karine Jean-Pierre When Confronted with Today’s Numbers That Show a Monthly Decline in Real Wages


White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday continued to lie about the economy.

Inflation rose 0.5% in January, ‘more than expected.’

The CPI is up 6.4% from a year ago.

Household budgets are strained and stressed. 

“Rising prices meant a loss in real pay for workers. Average hourly earnings fell 0.2% for the month and were down 1.8% from a year ago, according to a separate BLS report that adjusts wages for inflation.” CNBC reported.

“While price increases had been abating in recent months, January’s data shows inflation is still a force in a U.S. economy in danger of slipping into recession this year.” CNBC said.

A reporter confronted Karine Jean-Pierre about the decline in real wages.

“Numbers came out today that show a monthly decline in real wages… How do you view this setback?” a reporter asked KJP.

“What we have said many times is we believe the president’s economic plan is indeed working,” KJP said.
