White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has claimed that Republicans are opposing President Biden’s spending proposal because they are “rooting for inflation.”
“Q: Why, when Americans are seeing higher prices, are Republicans united against a bill to lower core costs on prescription drugs, health care, child care, and elder care? A: They’re rooting for inflation,” Psaki tweeted.
She made the comment while retweeting a post that included quotes from GOP Sen. Rick Scott of Florida, who is the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
“You can see what’s going to happen next. We’re going to continue to have inflation, and then interest rates will go up,” Scott said, according to the Wall Street Journal. “This is a gold mine for us.”
