On Thursday, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement after the September 2022 Consumer Price Index (CPI) revealed inflation has risen 13.5% since Joe Biden took office in January 2021.
“High prices are not transitory – they have become entrenched in our economy. In under two years, Democrats have taken us from nonexistent inflation to a 40-year record high. Too many Americans are living the nightmare of having to choose between buying gas they can’t afford, buying groceries they can’t afford, and paying energy bills they can’t afford. Families are struggling under the Democrats’ radical agenda.”
