MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle claims Americans CAN afford to pay more as cost of living soars: Says 'dirty little secret' is that households saved money over pandemic and can now afford expensive groceries

An MSNBC host has sparked outrage after she claimed that Americans saved money during lockdown so should be able to afford expensive groceries - even as the Labor Department reports biggest increase in the cost of living in three decades.

'The dirty little secret here, Willie, while nobody likes to pay more, on average, we have the money to do so,' MSNBC business correspondent Stephanie Ruhel told anchor Willie Geist on NBC.

'Household savings hit a record high over the pandemic, we didn't really have anywhere to go out and spend,' she added.
