United States Senator John Boozman states in a recent press release that inflation continues to run rampant, squeezing budgets and extending an economic crisis for individuals and our national economy. At 8.3 percent, inflation remains at its highest level in nearly 40 years.

Boozman stated the following:

  • Arkansans paid an additional $452 in April as result of inflation. Families, seniors on fixed incomes and single parents living paycheck-to-paycheck can’t afford necessities and have to choose which bills to pay or whether to fill prescriptions.
  • This new number comes on the heels of President Biden saying this is his “top priority” despite refusing to even take responsibility while continuing to pursue a reckless taxing and spending agenda.
