WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today issued the following statement after the April 2023 Consumer Price Index (CPI) revealed inflation accelerated last month and has risen nearly 16% since President Joe Biden took office.
“Democrats’ runaway spending continues to fuel today’s high prices. Rising inflation is forcing all Americans to rein-in their own everyday spending as prices climb each month. President Biden and Democrats aren’t doing the same. They refuse to cut spending even though the nation has blown past its limit. Families are worn out by Washington Democrats’ nonstop spending and worried about making ends meet. ”
