Sen. Marshall Statement on Biggest Inflation Surge in 31 Years

(Great Bend, KS, November 10, 2021) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Labor announced the Consumer Price Index (CPI) surged 6.2% from a year ago, marking the highest inflation rate in 31 years.

“Biden-flation is here to stay so long as those on the left continue to throw gasoline on the fire with their reckless taxing, reckless borrowing, and reckless spending agenda. Biden-flation is hurting every hard working American, but none more than our seniors and families living paycheck to paycheck,” said Senator Marshall. “Joe Biden and the Democrats inherited a vaccine and a re-emerging economy ready to take off like a rocket ship. All they had to do was sit back and do nothing but now their out-of-control socialist spending spree has brought the highest inflation in 31 years. Make no mistake, this inflation and all of its effects on groceries, gasoline, utilities, and other bare essentials rest squarely on the shoulders of Joe Biden – it’s yet another crisis created by this Administration.”
