Food prices have soared since President Biden took office, with countless American families facing sticker shock at the grocery store checkout. This isn’t entirely Biden’s fault, of course, but a new study suggests that one of Biden’s policies may have led food prices to increase by 15%.

The nonpartisan Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) just released a new report analyzing Biden’s expansion of food stamp benefits and the many unintended consequences it has had for taxpayers and shoppers alike. They report that upon taking office, Biden circumvented Congress to force through a 27% increase in food stamp benefits, “violat[ing] internal control standards, cancel[ing] formal peer-review processes, and even ignor[ing] its chief economist to expedite the expansion.”

The result has been a huge increase in food stamp spending, at taxpayers’ expense. Rolling back the expansion could save taxpayers $193 billion over the next 10 years, per the study.

But it’s done more than just further burdened taxpayers. This massive (and arguably unlawful) expansion of food stamps has, predictably, contributed to the huge increase in food prices.

How expanding food stamps caused food prices to go up.

Wonder which Dem donor is skimming the food stamps.
