Sen. Rick Scott Issues Weekly Update on Biden’s Inflation Crisis

April 22, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation following the release of March’s skyrocketing inflation data. Data continues to show a significant increase in inflation every month of Biden’s presidency with CPI increasing 8.5% and PPI increasing 11.2% over the year. March’s inflation data marks the largest annual increase in inflation since 1981 – marking a 40-year high under Joe Biden’s failed leadership.


Senator Rick Scott said, “Inflation is a tax that Joe Biden is forcing upon every hardworking family in America. Under his failed leadership, America’s poorest families, like mine growing up, are struggling to make ends meet. They are having to choose between gas and groceries. Shelves are empty. Gas prices are skyrocketing. What has Biden done to fix it? NOTHING. For over a year I have been warning about Biden’s growing inflation crisis, and I won’t stop fighting his reckless tax-and-spend agenda that is plaguing families across our nation. Our country can’t afford his continued missteps and failures.”


Since being elected to the U.S. Senate, Senator Scott has repeatedly urged action to address America’s debt crisis and the harmful effects of inflation. Click HERE for a comprehensive list of his statements and actions on this urgent issue.
