SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher (Yuba City) released the following statement on Joe Biden’s inflation remarks: 

“Joe Biden is taking a page straight from the Gavin Newsom playbook, deflecting and blaming everyone else for his policy failures.

“American families are paying an extra $536 every month due to 40-year-high inflation. Paychecks are getting smaller, bills are piling up and people want answers. They want the cost of gas, groceries and goods to go down. But especially here in California, Democrat one-party rule won’t allow it. They’ve blocked Republican solutions to lower prices and bring down the sky-high cost of living.

“No matter how hard they try to distract, Biden and Newsom own this crisis.”
