House Committee on Ways and Means Republican Leader Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) issued the following statement on news that inflation surged 6.8 percent in November, even more than expected, to fastest rate since 1982.
“This is another grim report for American workers and families whose paychecks are shrinking month after month due to President Biden’s inflation-friendly policies.
“Since President Biden took office, families have lost nearly three years worth of real wage growth. This is now a crisis for families and seniors on fixed incomes.
“Senate Democrats should suspend any consideration of Biden’s inflation-driving Build Back Better spending binge until the President can demonstrate he can get inflation under control.”
