Spanberger, Biden Celebrate as Stock Market Collapses, Cost of Living Continues to Skyrocket
PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY – Today, Yesli Vega issued a response to news that her opponent, Abigail Spanberger, joined Joe Biden at his “Inflation Reduction” party as the country’s stock market collapsed and the cost of living continued to skyrocket.
“Yesterday, as news broke that the cost of groceries, rent, and electricity are still skyrocketing, Abigail Spanberger was at the White House, partying with Joe Biden at his “Inflation Reduction” celebration. There is nothing more tone deaf then watching a career politician like Abigail pat herself on the back as the American people continue to suffer. It’s a slap in the face to the hardworking Virginians who are struggling to feed their families, pay rent, and keep the lights on at home. Virginians and the media should be asking Abigail, why are you celebrating middle-class tax hikes during a recession when everyone’s cost of living is still through the roof?” – Yesli Vega, Republican Nominee for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District
It’s no surprise that Abigail is continuing her campaign strategy of hiding from the real issues voters are concerned about – Vulnerable Democrats won’t say when IRA will reduce inflation, after latest inflation uptick.
Yesterday, the stock market saw the biggest one-day percentage drop since June of 2020 as a new Consumer Price Index report showed that the cost of living for Americans continues to rise.
As news broke that prices rose 8.3% from a year earlier, Abigail Spanberger joined Joe Biden at the White House for his party to highlight the passage of the “Inflation Reduction Act” which failed to reduce the cost of living in August.
