Luetkemeyer: Democrats Have No Real Plan to Address Inflation Crisis

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Ranking Member Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) issued the following statement on the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) report:

“Despite the Biden Administration and Congressional Democrats touting their so-called ‘Inflation Reduction Act,’ inflation continues its rampage on the American economy. The 8.2% year-over-year reading and a monthly increase of 0.4% is disastrously high and should be a red flag to every American. It is clear to me and to the American people the Democrats have no plan to address this crisis,” said Ranking Member Luetkemeyer. “Main Street has been plagued with tough economic headwinds for too long. Further incompetent economic policymaking can lead our small business economy into ruin, and it all started with Democrats’ inflation.”
