It's a Bad Sign: Hern Reacts To 8.3% Inflation in August

Representative Kevin Hern (OK-01) released the following statement after the Consumer Price Index increased 0.1% from July and 8.3% over last year.

“Inflation remains the number one issue facing our nation,” said Rep. Hern. “August’s inflation numbers indicate that sky-high prices for shelter, food, and fuel are here to stay. It’s a bad sign; meanwhile, President Biden is set to throw a party for one of the largest spending bills in American History. Economists across the political spectrum are predicting the so-called Inflation Reduction Act to increase inflationary pressures. Americans are hurting, but Democrats in the White House and Congress continue to ignore their pain. We must stop the spending.”
