Partial Transcript

Hagerty on how Biden’s disastrous policies are hurting American workers and families: “[My constituents] are very upset and very concerned. The policies that we’ve seen coming out of this Biden Administration have absolutely driven inflation through the roof. They’ve created shortages. And if people anticipate that goods are going to cost more tomorrow than they do today, they’re desperately buying. It’s self-fulfilling, if you think about it. Inflation is a self-fulfilling prophecy. That’s what’s happening right now. Then we’ve incentivized unemployment. Lots of people aren’t coming back into the workforce, and they’re coming back slowly. We’ve seen supply chain dislocations, that’s true, but we’ve also seen massive increases in prices. I mean, think about what Biden did when he killed the Keystone XL pipeline. When he has done everything to really wage war on the oil and gas industry, and gas prices are through the roof. Everything that we buy here in America’s got to be transported. It has a massively inflationary impact, and it’s hurting us all.”

Hagerty on Biden’s refusal to secure the southern border exacerbating the fentanyl crisis: “[Fentanyl] is coming from China. They’re shipping the precursor drugs right into Mexico. They’re flooding across the southern border, like Senator Blackburn said. We’ve got to secure it. And every month we don’t, we’re seeing drug increases flowing, people are dying.”
