MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle argued Americans have to put the high inflation rate and rising costs of food and other every day items “in perspective” on Sunday.
The consumer price index rose 6.2% year over year in October, according to the Department of Labor, the largest annual gain since November 1990. And prices rose 0.9% month over month.
But the soaring costs, Ruhle said on NBC, were expected after the worldwide pandemic, before telling anchor Willie Geist that Americans “on average” can actually afford the higher prices.
