How badly does a president have to fail, to make a staple like eggs too expensive for the average American to afford? Pretty badly, if you ask us. There are a variety of factors that have caused, of all things, eggs to double or quadruple in cost in recent months. The liberal media is blaming the avian flu.
But things wouldn’t be so bad, had Biden not tanked our economy long before this flu hit (and we’re not totally convinced he isn’t responsible for this outbreak as well). Inflation has hurt every industry in America. The cost of supplies, for farming and ranching, has gone through the roof. That has resulted in steep increases in basic needs, like bread, milk, and eggs.
Of course, Biden is doing nothing to help–seeing as he’s the cause of this crisis. But in the red state of Texas, lawmakers are moving mountains to ensure Americans can afford to eat.
As egg prices continue to soar, new bills filed in the state legislature would allow Texans to have chickens in their backyards.
Texans are currently paying between roughly $4 and nearly $9 for a dozen eggs at HEB, for example, equal to or more than the cost of cooked rotisserie chickens…

Texas lawmakers are coming up with a solution to help bring relief to these skyrocketing egg costs. In Texas (a state with a better economy than most blue states, mind you) eggs can be as much as $9 for a dozen. That’s almost double what they were just a few months ago.
So, the Republican-run state is coming up with a rule change that will let residents keep chickens in the backyard. Currently, residents with ample land are able to raise and tend chickens. But this bill will allow folks with smaller spaces to raise chickens, ensuring that local governments can provide “reasonable” restrictions.
A move like this can help some people find relief during the current economic climate. A single chicken lays one egg about every 24 hours. A family that can keep just a few chickens will have more than enough eggs in a week. The costs of taking care of chickens might actually be cheaper than buying eggs at the grocery store.
It might not be a solution for everyone, but at least Texas is coming up with ways to help. What has Biden done to relieve the pain Americans are feeling at the grocery store (and at restaurants, gas stations, clothing stores, etc.)? Nothing that I can see. From all appearances, every move Biden has made since entering office has only hurt the average American.
