Red Team v Blue Team on Inflation
With the Democrats you get inflation. Higher prices for the same things and higher taxes and higher debt.
With the Republicans you get inflation. The same prices for inferior things and higher taxes and higher debt.
With bipartisanship you get all of the above.
With gridlock you get no fiscal policy direction at al and place yourself at the mercy of monetary policy. See illustration above.
