Thanks, Joe: Americans Skipping Meals Due to Soaring Grocery Costs

Joe Biden is literally starving elderly and lower income Americans as a report finds that many Americans are skipping meals because they can’t afford food thanks to Bidenflation.

Inflation is already taking its toll on Americans even though Joe Biden and his corrupt Federal Reserve refuse to admit it is even here. The most vulnerable Americans are already be forced to skip meals because of the soaring costs of groceries.

Per a Nationwide Insurance newswire:

To combat high inflation, Americans have made difficult tradeoffs that negatively impact their health and wellbeing, finds a new Nationwide Retirement Institute® survey. Over the last 12 months, nearly two in five American households (17%) received food or goods from a food bank (22% for Millennials), and the same amount (17%) stopped buying healthier foods (organic or high-priced healthy foods).

Nearly one in five Americans (18%) say they skipped meals or didn’t buy groceries due to high inflation (including 28% of Gen Z and 23% of millennials). As food insecurity deepens, Americans are also struggling to pay for critical health care expenses. Many have cancelled or postponed plans in the past 12 months to see a specialist (14%), take a prescribed medication (10%) or get an annual physical (11%) due to high inflation. Almost one-fifth of Gen Z (17%) and Millennials (19%) have cancelled or postponed plans in the past 12 months to see a mental health professional.

“As the price of health care and basic necessities continue to reach record highs, Americans have been forced to make tough decisions that sacrifice their health and wellbeing,” said Kristi Rodriguez, senior vice president of the Nationwide Retirement Institute. “While these decisions are understandable and challenging, making short-term tradeoffs may have long-term impacts. Neglecting your health now can lead to far bigger costs as you age and approach retirement. This is such a critical time to consult with a financial professional to create a plan that prioritizes your health care needs now and in retirement.”

This is just the start, folks.

It is going to get far, far worse in the next few months.
