U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement today regarding the news that inflation rose 9.1% in June. 

“Inflation keeps hammering Nebraska families and today we just hit another 40-year high. This isn’t a Washington problem or an academic problem — this is a family problem: Inflation creates anxiety for families and makes it hard for moms and dads to plan for their kids. But while Nebraska families are trimming their budgets, President Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer are trying to pass another partisan budget-busting spending bill before the end of the year. That’s insane — families can’t afford it.”
