Rep. McCarthy to Biden on rising inflation: Wake up
UPDATED 1:08 PM PT – Friday, July 30, 2021
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has taken aim at Joe Biden over the rising inflation in the U.S. Speaking on the House floor on Friday, McCarthy criticized Biden’s comments at a CNN Town Hall where he said spending trillions more would reduce inflation.
He also pointed out the negative effects rising inflation has had on gas prices, groceries and travel. “Enough is enough. People are fed up with the ignorance, and arrogance, and the hypocrisy,” stated McCarthy.
One week ago, President Biden said inflation was “temporary,” and that spending trillions more would “reduce inflation, reduce inflation, reduce inflation.”
Mr. President, with all due respect—WAKE UP. https://t.co/dnjWkN8twb

McCarthy said both Republicans and Democrats have warned Biden’s spending proposals would boost inflation. He concluded by explaining that Americans are done with the hypocrisy and added, Biden needs to get a clue about inflation.
