Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) spoke at a House Republican Leadership press conference on Thursday to discuss the Republican plan to combat inflation and strengthen our economy. Watch her full remarks below.
“Last year, President Biden and Speaker Pelosi spent and spent and spent, and now we are all paying the price as inflation eats away at your paychecks.
America cannot afford one-party rule any longer.
“One in six Americans are behind on their utility bills, grocery prices are up 13.5% annually, Iowa farmers are grappling with sky high fertilizer and diesel prices, and mortgage rates are the highest they’ve been since 2008.
“While Democrats are doubling down on reckless spending, including through their $400 billion student loan debt transfer, Republicans are working on commonsense policies to restore our economy for everyone.
“We are committed to combatting inflation, regaining American energy independence to bring down the cost of gas and electricity, and making goods in America – not China.
“We believe you should keep more of your hard-earned money and that you know how to spend your paycheck better than the government can.
“Republicans have a plan to get our economy back on track. But the first, and most important, step in doing so is electing a Republican House majority so that we can close President Biden’s checkbook and put a check on this Administration.
“We are committed to a strong economy, we are committed to working families, and we are committed to a strong America.”
