Obamanomics: Price of ground beef hit another record high in February

No, you’re not imagining it. You can’t afford to eat beef.

The average price of a pound of ground beef climbed to another record high in February, hitting $4.238 per pound, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

It first broke the $4 barrier back in August 2014, and it’s been climbing ever since.

Because cows cause Global Warming. And the price of beef must necessarily skyrocket. Thanks Obama!

Reports that sales of Hamburger Helper are also up could not be confirmed at press time. But it’s a pretty safe bet.
