FLORIDA (FLV) – Florida leaders blasted the Biden Administration as new 40-year-record high inflation numbers hit 9.1% in June. 

“A 9.1% inflation rate is horrible for our country. This is a tax on the poor and middle class. It’s a tax on the elderly, living on fixed incomes. Biden is simply incapable of dealing with the biggest problems our country is facing. All he can do is finger point,” Chief financial Officer of Florida Jimmy Patronis said.

Patronis said the numbers hurt the country’s international standing. 

“He’s supposed to be this great global leader, but now everyone is having to turn to dictatorships for fuel and food. As the saying goes, ‘When America sneezes, the world catches a cold,’” Jimmy Patronis said.

“American families are hurting and Democrats want to tax and spend MORE,” U.S. Sen. Rick Scott said. 

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. 

“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,” U.S. Senator Marco Rubio said. 

The average cost of gas in Florida is $4.36 per gallon. The average a year ago was $3.00 per gallon.
