Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) is contradicting President Biden’s (D) claim that the rising inflation that America faces today is caused by war Putin’s war in Ukraine. By providing a chart in a tweet, Rep. Mast shows that the inflation problem was formulated prior to the war starting in late February.

“Inflation keeps on rising and now it’s at 8.5 percent! Biden refuses to take responsibility and instead is trying to blame it all on Putin’s war on Ukraine. One look at the data and it’s clear this isn’t #PutinsPriceHike, its #Bidenflation.”

 

Since the inflation numbers have come out, Republicans around the nation have been quick to point out the fact that the rate at which inflation has risen is the fastest it’s been in decades.

Similarly, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) inferred that the situation would be “even worse” if the Democrats in the Senate had a larger majority than they have now.

“Inflation grew at the fast rate IN 40 YEARS last month And if Biden had 51 Democrats in the Senate things would be even worse”

The numbers are damning for the President as his poll numbers have taken a dive, most likely in correlation with the rise of inflation.
