We know that Montanans are being hit HARD by inflation, leaving families worried about their grocery bills and their eroding sense of financial security.

Overall, prices are up almost 18% from January 2021, and even if inflation is wrangled down to earlier levels, the prices Americans pay won't go down — they'll just increase at a slower rate.

If you listen to my radio show, you know I'm very passionate about this topic. That's why I've partnered with Americans for Prosperity-Montana to raise awareness and show everyday people how they can get involved. If you're not familiar, Americans for Prosperity is a grassroots organization pushing for change at the local, state, and national levels so we all can experience the American Dream.

I recently joined Americans for Prosperity-Montana for a few public events. In my hometown, we spent two hours at my favorite pizza place paying the 24% difference inflation has caused on menu prices. As people ordered, we covered the amount attributable to inflation, before tip, to drive home how this adds up for hard-working people day after day.
