Claire McCaskill Claims More Inflation ‘Could Cost the Republicans the Midterms’
MCCASKILL: "Well, listen, I think that this could cost the Republicans the midterms. I think that this could go either way. And that's why at the end of the day, I think that you will get a deal that will be very popular in terms of roads, bridges, power grid, broadband. And then I think that you will get some kind of package on expanding Medicare which will also be very popular. But short term inflation is way more worrisome to people in swing districts and that could end up playing a hand in next year’s midterm. But on the other hand, so could Donald Trump acting like an idiot. And Donald Trump acting like an idiot helped us put Joe Biden in the White House. And you know, I’ll kind of bank on that, because I think Donald Trump is going to continue to act like an idiot."
