Biden Calls Inflation ‘Bane of Our Existence’

President Joe Biden called inflation the “bane” of the US in an appearance on a late-night talk show, and said that high food and gas prices could be offset by legislation lowering the cost of prescription drugs and childcare.

“Inflation is the bane of our existence. Inflation is mostly in food and in gasoline, at the pump,” Biden said Wednesday in an interview with ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.
