House Dems sound alarm on inflation as fears mount about election losses in November
May 13, 2022 1 min, 19 secs

House members say they’re being bombarded by constituent calls about skyrocketing prices at the gas pump and the grocery store, and putting pressure on Democrats to do something about it.

Matt Cartwright, Pennsylvania Democrat, said more members need to take notice of the impact inflation has had on people, or face the political consequences in November.

People can’t believe how much it costs, so they’re hurting right now,” Mr.

Cartwright is one of more than 60 Democrats targeted by the House GOP’s campaign arm and one of a handful of members who won their seat in a district won in 2020 by former President Donald Trump.

The alarmist tone Democrats now have when talking about inflation is a stark shift from earlier this year when a Biden administration official referred to inflation concerns as “high-class problems.”.

Democratic strategist Brad Bannon said the White House and Congress need to find a way to tackle inflation or else suffer the loss of several seats in November.

Andy Kim, a New Jersey Democrat in a tough reelection race this year, said inflation is the main issue he hears about at town hall meetings.

I just did a town hall, and a lot of people talked about the rising costs, and they’re furious,” Mr.

Hakeem Jeffries, who chairs the House Democratic Caucus, said members will work with Mr

The National Republican Congressional Committee, which continues to link swing state Democrats to the tough economic environment, dismissed Democrats’ attempts to address rising costs

“Democrats have no plan to contain the inflation crisis they created,” said NRCC spokesperson Mike Berg
