CHAIR HARRISON: This is a contrast. You got one party that wants to talk about inflation but doesn’t want to do anything about it, doesn’t have a plan to address any of the inflationary issues. Joe Biden and Democrats in the House and the Senate have a plan. When you look at the Republicans just recently, I think one of your senators – Tillis – didn’t even show up for the banking committee hearing where they were going to approve new members of the Federal Reserve, folks who would have the ability to impact our inflation and bring down costs, but Joe Biden is focused like a laser on doing just that.
