Patty’s Price Hikes, Part I: Higher Costs, Lower Wages

Murray Was Deciding Vote For So-Called “COVID Relief” Bill That Has Left Washingtonian Families Worse Off

Pasco, WA – In her first television ad of the year, Patty Murray tried her hand at empathy, saying: “Things are hard right now … I will stand up to anyone who doesn’t put you first.” Bottom Line: Patty should look in the mirror because she’s the one who hiked prices and made things harder on Washingtonian families.

Take a look at what the three-decade politician claims to say she’s fighting for in that ad

“Lower prices”? Inflation is now at a four-decade high nationwide – even worse in places like Seattle – with Washingtonian families struggling to make ends meet and witnessing skyrocketing prices at the grocery store. A big contributor to this record inflation: the $1.9 trillion so-called “American Rescue Plan” that Patty Murray was the deciding vote for. Don’t take our word for it. See what Democrat economists and left-leaning experts have had to say

  • Former Clinton and Obama economist Larry Summers warned trillions in spending would “set off inflationary pressures of a kind we have not seen in a generation.”

  • Former Obama economic adviser Steven Rattner said inflation resulted from “vast amounts of government rescue aid.”

  • Media outlets like Vox said “Biden’s American Rescue Plan worsened inflation” and even the Washington Post editorial board noted the “$1.9 trillion rescue package in March 2021 was too large.”

“Higher wages”? The problem is that wages aren’t keeping up with inflation. And this is how much American workers have lost:

Joe Biden “singled out” Patty for her work on the so-called “American Rescue Plan” and Patty will be held to account for her Price Hikes by Washingtonians this November.
