In an interview with Fox News, Hawley cited how Biden blames others as inflation continues to hit record highs instead of having a solution. While Americans are having trouble affording everyday items, Biden and his cohorts are essentially being asleep.
“Joe Biden’s war on American families continues. His policies have pushed inflation to generational highs, and he still won’t take any responsibility,” Hawley said.
“If he can’t do the job, he should step down now,” he blasts.
The former Missouri attorney general wrote in an op-ed for Fox News in October:
Long a land of abundance, the United States has become a land of scarcity under President Joe Biden.
Store shelves are increasingly empty, the cost of basic goods is soaring, supply chains are failing, foreign imports are backlogged at our ports, and a government-induced energy crunch has driven up prices at the pump to seven-year highs.
American families are bearing the brunt of this crisis.
Rather than address the underlying causes of scarcity by bolstering American production and enhancing the nation’s energy independence, the Biden administration has embraced this era of want.
Every day Biden just made it worse. People on fixed incomes are getting hit hardest by Biden’s failed policies. And Biden couldn’t care less that you’re struggling, what he always does is to make fake promises as fake as he is.
