Luetkemeyer: High Inflation is not the New Normal Despite Democrat Spin

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

“Inflation remains at the top of every American’s mind and a major problem for Main Street businesses. The Biden Administration continues their disinformation spin campaign to convince the American people that this is the new normal. It isn’t. 7.7% year over year inflation is not normal. Elevated shelter, food, and energy costs are not normal, nor sustainable. Gaslighting the American people will not solve the Democrats’ inflation crisis. Enough is enough,” said Ranking Member Luetkemeyer.
