Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.,on Sunday called out Democrats for denying the “reality” that inflation is affecting retirees and the “working poor.”
In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Johnson blasted White House chief of staff Ronald Klain for describing inflation and supply chain disruptions as “high class problems” that only hit the rich.
“Democrats are living in a fantasy world and deny reality,” Johnson said. “The reality is high inflation primarily affects retirees.. the working poor or any poor person. The rich people can handle inflation, they will figure out the right places to put their money. Their assets will inflate with the rest of inflation, but it’s the poor and people on fixed incomes that are incredibly hurt by inflation.”
