Watch Kennedy’s Comments here.

WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today discussed inflation that Americans are suffering under as a result of President Biden’s economic policies. Below are key excerpts from Kennedy’s remarks.

“If many Americans won the lottery tomorrow, the first thing they would do is fill up their gas tank. I’m not sure that President Biden understands that.

“The Biden administration claims that they are for the little gal or the little guy, but they sure don’t seem to like them very much. I can’t imagine a more pernicious tax than inflation. This inflation . . . is a direct result of President Biden’s economic policies.

“President Biden, of course, denies that. . . . I expect President Biden next to say that inflation originated in a bat—but it didn't. It began with the economic policies of the president.

What can we, as members of Congress, do about it? Well, we can’t force the members of the Biden administration to retake Econ 101. But we can do our part by stopping spending like we were drunken sailors.”
