Hern slams Biden’s failure to address record-high inflation

Representative Kevin Hern (OK-01) released the following statement on the Consumer Price Index showing an additional 0.5% increase in December for a YOY increase of more than 7%, the highest rate of inflation since 1982.

“First, President Biden told us inflation wasn’t a big deal,” said Rep. Hern. “Then, it was a temporary thing. Now, as many of us predicted, it’s a full-blown disaster impacting every single American, and President Biden still wants to spend more taxpayer money. More spending is not the answer, a larger government is not the answer. The only way to fix inflation is to immediately halt Biden and Pelosi’s reckless spending pattern and unshackle American small businesses to energize local economies. The American people are sick and tired of Biden’s bait-and-switch; if he doesn’t take responsibility and do something soon, the American people will handle it on Election Day.”
