Sen. Marshall Statement on Biggest Inflation Surge in Over 40 Years

(Washington, D.C., February 10, 2022) – 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 7.5% from a year ago, marking the highest inflation rate in over 40 years.

“The highest inflation surge in over four decades is further proof the Biden Administration is failing the American people,” said Senator Marshall. “As our economy struggles to recover from the lasting effects of the nationwide shutdown, President Biden and the Democrats continue to hinder economic growth with their reckless taxing, reckless borrowing, and reckless spending agenda. Make no mistake, this economic crisis rests squarely on the shoulders of President Biden’s failed socialist policies.”
