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

July 1, 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 announcement that the Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) price index increased 6.3% percent over the year under Joe Biden’s failed leadership.


As families across America continue to suffer under President Joe Biden’s record-breaking inflation, earlier this week Senator Rick Scott led his colleagues from the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Senators Ron Johnson, Josh Hawley, James Lankford and Rand Paul, in letter to Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen demanding answers on how the Department prepared for inflation early in 2021. The senators are also requesting records pertaining to the American Rescue Plan, specifically those regarding the Treasury’s actions to combat the known dangers of inflation following the reckless spending spree after the bill’s passage in March 2021.
