TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis berated President Joe Biden for inflation hitting 9.1% in June, which set a new 40-year-record high.
“Brutal inflation report shows a devastating increase of 9.1.% year-over-year,” DeSantis said Wednesday morning.
“Bidenflation is wreaking havoc on workers, families & small businesses – a consequence of anti-American energy policy, exorbitant borrowing & printing of money & counterproductive federal regulations.”
Wall Street analysts were reportedly expecting an annual increase of 8.8%. The increase in June was influenced by higher food and gas prices. Everything from rent to motor vehicle costs increased at the fastest pace in decades.
The average cost of gas in Florida is $4.36 per gallon. The average a year ago was $3.00 per gallon.
U.S. Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott railed against the President for the high prices.
“Democrats don’t care about things that matter to everyday working Americans such as inflation, a border crisis, gas prices or violent crime, they only care about the pet issues of their white, affluent & liberal donors & activists,” Senator Rubio said.
The governor has repeatedly slammed the Biden Administration. When inflation hit 8.6% in May, DeSantis said the state’s budget is prepared for any economic downturn.
Florida has a $21.8 billion budget surplus that the governor has said would be used to fill budget holes.
“We’ve gotten massive surplus, and we’re going to be able to meet our needs and all the services and things people depend on,” DeSantis said in June. “That’s going to be good.”
