The Republican National Committee is blasting President Joe Biden for the latest inflation figures, saying America knows “he is to blame.”

The GOP’s comments came in a Tuesday tweet. It wrote: “Inflation is up 8.5% from last year, and real wages are down. #Bidenflation has been getting worse each month and the American people know Biden is to blame.”

The tweet came after the Labor Department released its consumer price index showing that at 8.5%, inflation skyrocketed the past year at its fasted pace in more than 40 years.

Prices have been driven up by problems in the supply chains, robust consumer demand and disruptions to global food and energy markets worsened by Russia’s war against Ukraine, according to The Associated Press.

And in a statement released by the RNC, Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel ripped Biden and Democrats.

“Prices are up, real wages are down, and families and small businesses are being left behind in Biden’s economy,” she said. “Democrats’ reckless spending and failed policies have crushed Americans, and they don’t seem to care. Voters do care, and they will be sending a message in November.”
