Kamala Harris Suggests Supply Chain Crisis Could Cancel Christmas
VP suggests Santa Claus will be unable to deliver
Kamala Harris has raised concerns that Christmas maybe be severely impacted this year due to supply chain disruptions.
“Families are worried about being able to make sure Santa Claus gets whatever Santa Claus should get to the children by Christmas,” she said.
Harris brought up the Christmas issue during a press conference after visiting Paris, France.
Harris voiced concerns about supply chain issues that were impacting American families.
“Prices have gone up,” she admitted.
“Families and individuals are dealing with the realities that bread costs more and gas costs more.”
“We fully appreciate the significance of things costing more."
"It’s a big deal,” Harris said.
Last month, Harris said the supply chain crisis was due to workers not making enough money.
The CBS station in western Pennsylvania said ahead of its interview with Harris:
“Empty shelves for consumers and missing parts for local manufacturers — it all adds up to inconvenience and now an inflation rate of 5.4 percent in September."
“But listen, part of it is also saying, let’s take care of workers,” Harris said.
“This also needs to be about paying workers their value, paying the wages that reflect the value of their work.”
In October, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg warned that the current supply chain crisis “will continue into next year.”
“Certainly, a lot of the challenges that we have been experiencing this year will continue into next year."
Meanwhile, Biden himself touted "economic recovery" despite 4.3 million workers quitting their jobs, soaring inflation, and empty shelves.
