Rep. Crawford Statement on August Inflation Report

9/13/2022

Washington  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today that inflation is at 8.3%, marking the eighth consecutive month of inflation over 7%. Representative Rick Crawford (AR-01) released the following statement.

“Bidenflation continues to roar, with prices rising at rates not seen in 40 years, since a show called Fantasy Island ruled the TV ratings. But now the White House grounds are Fantasy Island, a place where trillions of taxpayer dollars are spent without a moment’s thought, and their latest inflationary idea was to make fire fighters and nurses pay off the college loans of doctors and lawyers. 

Americans continue to grow poorer under Biden, as prices increase faster than wages, and average weekly hours worked inch lower, putting economic security out of reach for even more families. 

The new Congress that will take office in January must make Job One shutting down the Biden inflation machine, and ending Bidenomics for the rest of his presidency.”
