WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, during an open hearing in the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation (CST), Senator Rick Scott questioned Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg on the Biden administration’s reckless spending and failure to address or fix the raging inflation and supply chain crises that continue to hurt families and businesses across America. Since October 2021, Senator Scott has been calling on Secretary Buttigieg to testify before the CST Committee and address the ongoing supply chain crisis. This is the first time Secretary Buttigieg has testified before the CST Committee since January 2021.
Senator Rick Scott said, “While President Biden continues to ignore the raging inflation and supply chain crises he’s created and blame others for his problems, I’m glad Secretary Buttigieg finally made it back to the Commerce Committee to answer my questions. It’s been 16 months since he last testified and six months since I first called on him and Secretary Raimondo to come forward and tell the American people what they are doing to lower prices and restock shelves. For over a year, as inflation has skyrocketed from 1.4% to 8.5%, Biden, Buttigieg and Raimondo have been silent and missing. Instead of being accountable to hardworking families, they have blamed others. It’s shameful. Florida families see right through this administration’s weak indifference and are SICK AND TIRED OF IT. I won’t stop fighting to end Joe Biden’s failed agenda and reckless spending.”
