Biden Comes Up With A “Plan” To Combat High Meat Costs

Up till recently, my Walmart and Lidl have mostly resisted the rising cost of foods, including meats. So, I was kinda shocked at how much pre-made burger patties had gone up. Probably around $2 from normal. Fortunately, #LetsGoBrandon has a Plan

I’m sure his plan can’t be that bad, right?

Joe Biden Ice Cream Afghanistan(Reuters) The United States will issue new rules and $1 billion in funding this year to support independent meat processors and ranchers as part of a plan to address a lack of “meaningful competition” in the meat sector, President Joe Biden said on Monday.

The initiative comes amid rising concerns that a handful of big beef, pork and poultry companies have too much control over the American meat market, allowing them to dictate wholesale and retail pricing to profit at the expense of their suppliers and customers.

“Capitalism without competition isn’t capitalism. It’s exploitation,” Biden said. “That’s what we’re seeing in meat and poultry industries now.”

Yeah, it’s that bad, and divorced from reality.

The Department of Agriculture (USDA) will spend the $1 billion from American Rescue Plan funds to expand the independent meat processing sector, including funds for financing grants, guaranteed loans, and worker training, said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, who was speaking at an event with Biden.

And how long will that take? Years? Who’s going to be able to step up? Seems like a plan without anyone involved

Attorney General Merrick Garland, also speaking at the event, said “too many industries have become too consolidated over time,” and that the antitrust division of the Department of Justice has been chronically underfunded.

Right, that will help drive down inflation. Maybe we shouldn’t be printing even more more to try and deal with inflation.

North American Meat Institute spokesperson Sarah Little said staffing plants remains the biggest issue for meatpackers and that the White House plan would not address it.

“Our members of all sizes cannot operate at capacity because they struggle to employ a long-term stable workforce,” she said. “New capacity and expanded capacity created by the government will have the same problem.”

How about putting a ton of those illegal aliens to work?

    Bullshit. Bullshit and more Bullshit coming from the government.

    A chronically underfunded anti-trust division is the problem. No Competition is the problem. How about China owning most of the beef, Chicken and farming in this country? Is that a problem? Is it death by 1000 paper cuts?

    It is billionaires screwing the little guy as they float around on their 350,000,000 to 1,150,000,000 dollar giant floating brothels, paying gorgeous girls to have sex with congress critters and greasing their offshore bank accounts to look the other way.

    The democrats who used to actually give a shit about competition and funding and making sure all of these kinds of BS were avoided but they are now more interested in making WHITE people move to the back of the line in NYC when it comes to covid treatment. More interested in defunding the police, burning down cities, making sure transgender men beat the snot out of women in sports than they are in making sure we can eat.

    The left that used to care about this stuff and would sue the pants off a corp for sneezing now has crawled in bed with them because they found out that corps can be big donors, big support for their cultural revolution.

    Not enough money for the anti-trust department? And to think this guy was nominated to be a Supreme court judge.
