During the White House briefing on Tuesday, Jen Psaki said the supply chain crisis is because people have more money and are buying more goods:
“More people have expendable income.”
Psaki doesn’t take into account that American paychecks are shrinking during inflation. What she’s pushing is a narrative to deflect blame from Biden’s incompetence onto the American people.

Psaki brought up the “expendable income” issue several times during the briefing as a talking point she wanted to drill home. She said the supply chain issue is multi-faceted but continued her laser focus on the spin that people are buying more goods.
This follows the assessment by Ron Klain that this is a “high-class problem”:
After Biden’s Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, retweeted a claim that the supply chain problem is a “high-class problem.” Jen Psaki was asked if this was a “tone-deaf” comment by Klain.
Klain retweeted this:
Psaki smirked and mocked reporter Emerald Robinson for asking the question. This smirking and condescension has been a trend with Psaki, who mocks reporters when she doesn’t like a question.
Psaki doesn’t answer the question but spins around it:
Psaki gets even more condescending after the second question asking about Klain being tone-deaf:
The Biden administration can call the supply chain problem whatever they want, but it is a problem for EVERYONE.
