Sasse Statement on Inflation

January 12, 2022

”Mr. President, come back to reality, forget remaking America with mega-spending bills, and instead tackle the real issues.”

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Budget and Finance Committees, issued the following statement after today’s report that inflation ended 2021 at the highest level in four decades.

“Inflation is real and it’s a huge problem for American families. President Biden scoffed earlier this year when he was warned that his reckless spending would make the problem worse, but he can’t ignore reality now. Families across this country are getting slammed at the checkout and the pump. Mr. President, come back to reality, forget remaking America with mega-spending bills, and instead tackle the real issues.”
