Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said Biden is, “content watching people suffer” under the pressure of the United State’s continuing inflation crisis.
Desantis’ remarks come on the heels of the latest consumer price index measurements that show an 8.5% year-over-year increase.
Inflation is at a 40-year high of 8.5% due to federal policies of borrowing & printing money at unfathomable levels & bad energy policy, which is hurting Floridians.
Biden could unleash domestic energy production to provide relief. Instead, he is content watching people suffer.

The CPI report also stated, “Increases in the indexes for gasoline, shelter, and food were the largest contributors to the seasonally adjusted all items increase. The gasoline index rose 18.3 percent in March and accounted for over half of the all items monthly increase; other energy component indexes also increased. The food index rose 1.0 percent and the food at home index rose 1.5 percent.”
According to CNBC, “The data reflected price rises not seen in the U.S. since the stagflation days of the late 1970s and early ’80s. March’s headline reading in fact was the highest since December 1981. Core inflation was the hottest since August 1982.”
