While Americans slip deeper into financial ruin, the White House decided it would be a perfect time to focus on arbitrary things instead of battling inflation.
For the first time in American history, two women’s signatures will be featured on U.S. currency. Treasure Secretary Janet Yellen’s signature will be enacted once a U.S. treasurer is installed. The rule makes it to where two signatures must be added to the currencies simultaneously.
However, that problem was supposedly solved as Joe Biden appointed Marilynn Malerba as the next U.S. treasurer. She will be the first Native American to serve in this position; the White House pointed out.
The announcement was made by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain who tweeted, “And, for the first time in history, the signatures of two women will appear on our currency.”

People didn’t take this announcement too well, seeing as inflation has completely diminished purchasing power. If the White House wants to spend time focusing on currency, it should be directed at stopping hyperinflation.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics released a shocking report about what the United States is up against.
“The all items index increased 8.6 percent for the 12 months ending May, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending December 1981,” the report read.
Right now, the average gas price is almost $5, which has a massive effect on citizens and businesses across the country.
Twitter erupted with comments that weren’t too thrilled about the new currency in today’s turbulent climate.

“Excellent. Now talk about inflation,” John J. Miller tweeted.
“i care more about our currency being eroded and us getting poorer than this symbolism.” A user named Brad Polumbo commented.
Is that why a dollar will only get you 70% of what it did last year? https://t.co/8Hhud9StsC

“This is what counts as a progressive win nowadays? Signatures on money? Our economy is collapsing.” Fox News reporter Timothy H.J. Nerozzi tweeted.
Under the Trump administration, all Americans had more security than this country has seen in a long time. As a result, stocks were high, cryptocurrencies were booming, businesses were succeeding, and inflation wasn’t at the forefront of people’s monetary decisions.
Now, we have the opposite, but luckily we can virtue signal without feminist-sensitive currency. So at least we have that going for us.
