Rep. Crawford Responds to Latest Inflation Numbers
Washington — Today, new inflation numbers were released and they are as bleak as expected. Prices continue to rise faster than wages, meaning once inflation is taken into account, Americans are worse off today than they were before President Joe Biden took office.
Bidenflation is real and getting worse.
Americans have not faced inflation this high since 1981. In fact, most Americans alive today have never lived under inflation this high.
Representative Rick Crawford (AR-01) released the following statement in response to the latest inflation reports:
“Somehow, the experts were the last to know what my constituents understand all too well: the prices they pay at the gas station, supermarket, on new and used cars, and on their utility bills have been rising faster than their wages since Biden took office. The policies of President Biden and the Fed gave us these devastating inflation numbers, not Putin’s lawless invasion.”
Rep. Crawford continued, “The quickest ways for Washington to slow inflation would be to stop flooding the market with new government spending and to end Democrats’ war on fossil fuels, since higher fuel prices flow throughout the economy making everything more expensive. Otherwise, inflation will continue to erode the living standards of working families.”
