After Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) claimed that Republicans just complain about runaway inflation, but don’t propose a plan to address it, Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) provided a three-word rebuttal.

“We don’t hear what they’d do to solve the problem,” Schumer said in a Senate floor speech challenging Republicans to “Step up and say what their plan is to fight inflation”:

"While many on the other side of the isle have spent a lot of time giving floor speeches and presenting charts about rising costs, where are their actual proposals?

“We don’t hear what they’d do to solve the problem. Attacking the problem doesn’t make it any better. Proposing solutions, as Democrats are doing, does.

“Republicans should step up and say what their plan is to fight inflation, not just point fingers. That solves no problem. Democrats will continue to propose legislation on cost-cutting, and we're going to continue to focus on helping everyday Americans find relief."
