ATLANTA – Today, Team Herschel released the following statement after the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) released the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) report showing that prices increased 8.5% over the last year, continuing record inflation rates as Georgia families continue to struggle to put food on the table.
“No matter how you look at it, this month’s inflation report shows Raphael Warnock has forced Georgians to pay more for everyday goods,” said spokesperson Mallory Blount. “In the middle of a recession, Raphael Warnock voted to increase taxes, against lowering the price of gas, against lower drug costs, and for more invasive IRS audits on hard-working Georgians. Every day there are more and more stories of Georgians struggling to make ends meet and put food on their table. Raphael Warnock wants every Georgian to know that he’s fighting for Joe Biden, not for them.”
