It varies from person to person but from my experience, Chess.com blitz ratings are pretty accurate to USCF ratings and USCF ratings are generally 200-300 points higher than your FIDE rating.

So Basically Uscf is pretty much easier than fide that's it

The USCF uses a modification of the Elo system, in which it gives bonus points for superior performance in a tournament.

I've never heard anyone make that claim before.

At least from everyone I know, their national rating is significantly higher than their FIDE.

Usually people say USCF is 100 points higher... but it can depend on the area. My FIDE was higher than my USCF when I was living in a certain area, and FIDE players felt weak relative to their rating... but I didn't have many FIDE games so take my experience with a grain of salt... but I've never heard anyone claim a 200 or 300 point difference.
