Jean-Pierre on Inflation: ‘The President Understands That When it Comes to the Economy He Understands How Much That’s Crushing Families’

‘That’s why he’s made that his number one economic priority’

EXCERPT:

JEAN-PIERRE: “So the President understands that. When it comes to the economy, he understands how much that’s crushing families. He gets it, that people are sitting around their kitchen table and trying to figure out how are they going to pay for their groceries? And so that’s why he has made that his number one economic priority. If you think about how hard he fought for the Inflation Reduction Act, for some people who don’t know what that is, it is going to bring down costs for prescription drugs. I think people may have a senior citizen, a grandpa or grandma at home, and they know, they are paying thousands of dollars a month just to get that prescription drug. So this is — this is going to do, it’s going to cap that to $2,000 a year. That’s a game changer. That is a game changer for so many Americans.”
