Smiley Statement on Interest Rate Increase
PASCO, WA – Veterans advocate and U.S. Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley (R-WA) issued the following statement concerning the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike.
Tiffany Smiley said: “The Federal Reserve’s aggressive rate increase of half a percentage point is one more repercussion of the Biden-Murray inflation tax. Cost of living has skyrocketed because Joe Biden, Patty Murray and Chuck Schumer refuse to rein in spending. This rate hike will just be one more burden on the backs of families that are already struggling to make ends meet. It is time for Washington to have a leader who will stop the runaway spending in DC while also working for policies that encourage economic growth. It’s time to retire Patty Murray!”
