One Country Statement on August 2022 CPI Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, One Country Project founder Heidi Heitkamp issued the following statement after the release of the August Consumer Price Index (CPI) report:

“The August CPI data show that the policies enacted by the Biden Administration and Democrats in Congress continue to work for American families. Over the past two months, our country has seen prices begin to flatten – gas prices have fallen $1.30 per gallon since the beginning of the summer and price increases at the grocery store slowed compared to last month.

“There is more work to be done to stabilize the economy, but Democrats continue to work hard to ease American burdens. Biden’s economic plan has created nearly 10 million jobs since he took office. The American Rescue Plan, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the CHIPS and Science Act have invested in America’s heartland and helped to bring good-paying jobs to American workers. Yesterday, President Biden, Congressional leaders, and industry champions gathered at the White House to celebrate the enactment of the Inflation Reduction Act. This celebration marks the beginning of efforts to reduce the cost of healthcare, prescription drugs, and energy for everyday Americans.”
