That's the comparison being made by Republican lawmakers and conservative commentators as the Biden administration confronted a series of familiar crises last week – specifically, gas shortages and rising consumer good prices.
Following the revelation that Colonial Pipeline – the largest gas distributor on the East Coast – videos and images surfaced of cars sitting bumper to bumper, waiting to fill up before gas stations ran out of fuel. The gas shortage had a domino effect, too. It even prompted a shortage of a fast-food favorite: Chick-fil-A sauce.
The gas shortage was just one crisis the Biden administration was forced to confront, though. Less than one week after a devastating jobs report, the U.S. Labor Department revealed that the prices of basic goods and services spiked 0.8% in April alone. That's the largest monthly increase the country has experienced in more than a decade.
These crisis prompted House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to say that Biden is "well on his way to creating another Jimmy Carter economy."
