President Joe Biden is taking heavy fire as we pass the one-year mark of the president calling inflation temporary even as prices continue to soar.
“Most of the price increases we have seen are expected to temporary,” Biden said on July 19 of last year.
The latest U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that consumer prices have risen 9.1% since then and the producer price index has risen even higher.
Critics piled on to the president on the issue.
Biden Admin – inflation is transitory, temporary, decelerating, and/or peaking; a ‘high-class problem’ caused by COVID, or meat packers, or Putin or oil companies; & the numbers are ‘out-of-date’ so just ignore them. Why does anyone believe these people? https://t.co/KQwLqAMRbY

A year ago today, with prices already rising, President Biden said high inflation was, “expected to be temporary.”
Well, last week’s inflation report confirmed on paper what working families have been feeling for a year: President Biden’s prediction was dead wrong.

It's been exactly ONE YEAR since @JoeBiden claimed that inflation would be "temporary". That was a lie.
Inflation has skyrocketed every day under Biden's failed leadership & he's failed to fix it. It's time he puts Americans out of suffering & resign.

One year ago today Joe Biden told the American people inflation was “temporary.”
That was FALSE.
Inflation has now skyrocketed to 9.1% because of Biden and House Democrats’ out-of-control spending. https://t.co/iRbrOAX6uK

One year ago, President Biden told Americans that this inflation was "temporary."
Today, inflation is the highest its been in over four decades.
Thanks to President Biden's incompetence, people across the country are draining their savings to stay afloat financially.

WATCH: One year ago today, Biden said inflation would be “temporary.”
Flash forward to today and inflation rose to 9.1% in June, a 40 year high…https://t.co/OoNH5s0Zk3

1 YEAR AGO TODAY Biden claimed inflation would “be temporary.”
He could not have been more wrong.
Let today serve as another reminder: You can’t trust a thing Biden says about inflation. In fact, if he says one thing, expect the opposite.https://t.co/3qNEYmr58z

Biden said inflation was “temporary” but a year later here we are. It’s at the highest level in 40-years and shows no sign of slowing. https://t.co/KCRj7RAGLW
