Breaking News: Prices on Everything To Go Up 64%
"PRICES ON EVERYTHING GOING UP 64% STARTING TODAY - INCOME TO STAY THE SAME OR DECREASE FOR MOST AMERICANS"
Imagine that headline on the evening news or your local newspaper which was $1.50 and is now $2.46.
The $4 gallon of milk at Fast Mart is now $6.56.
The $100 grocery bill rings up at $164 now and that will come out of your wallet every time you stock up.
The electric bill has been pretty steady at $130 per month but from now on you'll be paying $213.
A fill-up of fuel oil for the coming winter is now $820 instead of the $500 you budgeted and there will be more fill-ups to come.
That inexpensive refrigerator at Sears just went from $390 to $640. Thank goodness you don't have to buy one every month. Forget the Honda Fit at $18,000 - its now just about $30,000.
As one of the fortunate low-income individuals eligible for the State's Low Income Health Insurance Plan my rates just went up 64%. How in any Deity's Name can this be justified? What other commodity can get away with this kind of exorbitant price increase? Perhaps this is, in part, due to the State's fiscal crisis, but it surely is mainly due to the Insurance Mafia that is allowed to continually extort the consumer for more profits.
When WILL this end?
