Stephanie Ruhle previously said Republicans 'want' higher inflation so they can 'blame the White House'
Despite Democrats controlling the White House and both chambers of Congress, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle demanded to know Sunday what plan Republicans have to "combat inflation." Inflation hit a new 40-year high in May with the Labor Department announcing Friday that the Consumer Price Index rose 8.6% from this time last year, after the Biden administration spent months claiming inflation would be transitory. On Friday's episode of "Morning Joe," Ruhle claimed Republicans "want" higher inflation because it's better for them politically. She said, "But we need to remind our audience that Republicans, they’re not offering any solutions. They’re saying ‘Inflation is terrible, blame the White House.’ They’re not offering you anything better." On Sunday night she took her GOP-focused message to Twitter, tweeting in all caps, "WHAT IS THE REPUBLICAN PLAN TO COMBAT INFLATION?"
