Georgia Governor Declares ‘State of Emergency’ over Inflation, Blames ‘Bidenomics’

Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp has declared a “state of emergency” over high inflation in the state.

Kemp announced that he would be temporarily suspending the state’s gas tax in an effort to ease the burden on drivers.

The tax suspension started on Wednesday and will last until October 12.

According to the Georgia Recorder, Kemp’s office stated that the reduction will result in savings for Georgians of 31.2 cents for regular gasoline and 35 cents for diesel.

Gov. Kemp blamed Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration for the hike in inflation.

He specifically blasted the failures of “Bidenomics” which has taken a strain on middle-class Americans across the country.

“From runaway federal spending to policies that hamstring domestic energy production, all Bidenomics has done is take more money out of the pockets of the middle class,” Kemp said in a statement.

“While high prices continue to hit family budgets, hardworking Georgians deserve real relief and that’s why I signed an executive order today to deliver it directly to them at the pump.

“Working with partners in the General Assembly, we’ll continue to help Georgians weather the economic headwinds caused by this president, his administration, and their allies in Congress.”
