Sen. Marshall Statement on 9.1% Inflation Surge – Highest in 41 Years

(Washington, D.C., July 13, 2022) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. released the following statement addressing the latest Labor report showing that inflation hit a 41-year high as the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 9.1% in June.

“The highest inflation surge in 41 years is further proof the Biden Administration’s out-of-control spending and radical energy agenda is failing the American people. Unfortunately, they’re now pursuing passage of another massive package – the offspring of Build Back Broke – and there is no relief in sight,” said Senator Marshall. “Americans cannot withstand this continued assault from Washington. We must put a halt to the out-of-control tax and spend mentality and pursue pre-COVID policies that strengthened American energy independence and allowed Americans to spend more of their hard earned money, not less.”
