Smiley Statement on Continued Inflation Increases
PASCO, WA – Veterans advocate and U.S. Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley (R-WA) issued the following statement on today’s inflation numbers released by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
Tiffany Smiley said: “Today’s numbers are visual proof of what every hardworking Washingtonian has known for months- inflation continues to worsen and there appears to be no end in sight.”
“After a year in control of the government, what have Joe Biden, Patty Murray, and the rest of the Democratic leadership done to fix inflation? Rather than propose common sense solutions to help hard working families, Joe Biden and Patty Murray continue to push the multi-trillion dollar ‘Build Back Better’ plan while also floating the possibility of another stimulus package. More spending, more taxes, more bureaucracy, more money chasing still fewer goods creating more, not less, inflationary pressures.
As Washington families pay more at the pump and more at the grocery store one can’t help but wonder “Where is Patty Murray?” She’s nowhere to be found. It’s time for Washington to have a senator who is still connected to her constituents and knows the struggles they are facing- because she is facing them too.
