WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement after the July 2022 Consumer Price Index (CPI) revealed inflation rose 12.6% since Joe Biden took office in January 2021.
“Today’s numbers confirm what most people already know. The price of everyday goods keep skyrocketing, and Americans continue to feel the pain.
“While the American economy is in a recession and inflation is at a 40-year high, the Democrats’ answer was 87,000 new IRS auditors. Americans want relief, not this.
“Joe Biden’s reckless economic policies continue to fail Wyoming families.”
