COLUMBIA, SC — Joe Cunningham, endorsed by Joe Biden, and President
Biden, endorsed by Joe Cunningham, have both had a hard time taking a clear
position on the Biden Administration’s inflation law. As Vice President Kamala

Carolina, let’s put it to him again. Does Joe Cunningham believe the Inflation
Reduction Act is a good policy? Does he believe it is working? Will he visit with
the Vice President in South Carolina to discuss the law?”
