Amid skyrocketing inflation, White House recommends Americans ‘stop being so poor’

WASHINGTON, DC–Amid record skyrocketing inflation, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki suggested a few things to help them through the difficult financial times.

“The first thing you should do with all this inflation is stop being so poor,” Psaki said at her daily press conference. “It’s not the president’s fault you’re not richer.”

The recommendation follows a similar recommendation by the Biden Administration Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for people who can’t afford high gas prices to buy a horse and buggy.

“It’s not rocket science,” Psaki said, “just become rich and then inflation won’t affect you as much.”

Psaki has several other suggestions to help survive high inflation:

  1. Put more money in your bank account
  2. Become a millionaire by condemning income inequality
  3. Get richer
  4. Stop being so poor
  5. Vote for the same people who are raising inflation

Psaki expects all of you peasants to be richer the next time she sees you.
