Pfluger Statement on 9.1% Inflation Rate

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) released the following statement on the record-high June inflation statistics released Wednesday:

Rep. August Pfluger: “For nearly a year, Democrats in Washington have ignored the realities of inflation while Americans who do not have the luxury of ignoring price spikes on their basket of groceries and tank of gas suffer. In the past year and a half, I have voted against over $5 trillion in inflationary Democrat spending that has led to 9.1% price hikes, and yet they continue pushing for more.

“President Biden can lower costs and put an end to inflation by unleashing American energy producers, locking in the Trump-era economic policies that spurred record growth, and putting an end to his party’s tax-and-spend legislative plans that will further tax Texas business and farmers.”
