ATLANTA – Today, Team Herschel released a statement highlighting how record-high inflation caused by votes taken by Raphael Warnock has negatively impacted hospitals across Georgia. As of August of 2022, the U.S. healthcare inflation rate increased to 5.37%, compared to 4.83% last month and 0.37% last year.
According to a recent report from Becker’s Healthcare:
“A new analysis from management consulting firm Kaufman, Hall & Associates indicates hospitals and health systems continue to face intense pressure on staff and resources while also dealing with rising expenses for supplies, drugs and equipment, and the workforce, according to a Sept. 15 special bulletin from the American Hospital Association. These trends are expected to continue through 2022, with hospitals and health systems losing billions of dollars.”
“Raphael Warnock’s blind loyalty to Joe Biden has hurt Georgia’s hospitals and Georgians’ access to healthcare,” said campaign spokesman Will Kiley. “Hospitals across Georgia are experiencing staffing shortages, supply chain disruptions, and rising costs, due in part to record-high inflation rates. By voting with Biden over 96% of the time Warnock has helped create the highest inflation rate in 40 years. If Washington Warnock actually cared about Georgia he would stand up to Biden more than 4% of the time.”
