Job Creators Network Responds to January Consumer Price Index

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement in response to the January Consumer Price Index, which rose by 3.1%, and Core CPI, which rose by 3.9%:
“Inflation remains historically high and is nothing to cheer about. Talk to any American going to the grocery store, hardware store, or pharmacy, and they’ll tell you prices continue to rise at a painful rate. Rents, car payments, and home and auto insurance have gone through the roof. Core inflation didn’t budge and continues to rise at twice the Federal Reserve’s target rate. Moreover, the inflation damage has already been done, with prices of goods and services rising by 20% since President Biden took office. As a result, Americans are facing a cost of living crisis. This is a direct result of bad Democratic policies like reckless spending and opposition to cheap energy. The only way to bring prices back under control for the long term is by supporting candidates who believe in free enterprise, domestic energy production, deregulation, tax cuts, and the American Dream.”
