The Political Cost of Inflation
Consumer prices for nearly everything continues to rise at an alarming rate. Food, cars, furniture and especially the price of gas are all way up month-over-month and year-over-year, with inflation seeing its highest one-month jump in 30 years.

CBN News Congressional Correspondent Abigail Robertson joins us to discuss the politics of inflation and what it means for Congress and the Biden White House.
