As first exclusively reported by the Washington Times, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) has issued the following statement in response to annual inflation rising to 9.1%:
“Democrats’ one-party rule is a historic failure of empty promises, excuses, and higher costs. Their reckless spending spree has caused consumer costs to increase at a record-breaking, four-decade-high inflation rate. Alarmingly, despite insistence from the administration that the pain would be temporary, the trend is now accelerating with prices rising at ever-faster rates and infecting a broader and broader set of the products our families need.
“Democrats have no plan to bring rising costs under control, and instead are doubling down on pushing trillion dollar tax-and-spend plans that will only make things worse. This backwards plan is crushing families and a House Republican majority would halt it in its tracks.”
