Washington, D.C. – The Biden Administration is finally admitting what most Americans already know – inflation is here to stay. Yesterday, Biden’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said the issues causing inflation to skyrocket will “certainly” continue into next year. But his explanation for why prices continue to rise was bizarre and mostly false. 

Buttigieg said prices are rising because wages are up, and Americans are spending too much money. The truth is that Americans’ wages are not keeping up with rapidly rising inflation caused by Democrats’ reckless spending. Under Joe Biden’s failed leadership, Americans are paying more for gas, food, and many other important everyday consumer products. 

Joe Biden and Senate Democrats’ reckless spending is wreaking havoc on the middle-class and working families. And instead of correcting the real cause of rising prices, the Biden Administration is gaslighting hardworking Americans. Once again, they are blaming others for their own failures. 

Why won’t Senators like Mark Kelly, Raphael Warnock, Maggie Hassan, Catherine Cortez Masto, and Michael Bennet admit that the reckless spending spree they support is driving consumer prices through the roof? Or do they actually believe that Americans’ spending habits are the problem?
