U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today issued a statement after the February 2023 Consumer Price Index (CPI) revealed inflation has risen 15.01% since Biden took office.
“President Biden’s reckless spending and far-left priorities have created an inflation disaster. Americans are dipping into their savings just to pay for gas and groceries. Yet, President Biden doubled down on his disastrous policies with his latest budget request. His radical, tax-and-spend wish list attacks American energy, wastes taxpayer dollars, and raises taxes on everyday Americans. This president isn’t doing anything to lower sky-high prices or make life more affordable. Democrats must stop their attacks on middle-class families.”
