Kamala Harris has claimed reducing inflation is “one of the highest priorities” of the Biden administration.

In an interview on Thursday, the Democrat said the administration has been dealing with inflation in a number of ways, including by addressing the supply chain crisis. Harris also denied the Build Back Better agenda would increase inflation and instead claimed the proposed legislation would bring prices down.

However, she noted lowering the cost of living would take time.

“Long-term, we need to bring down the cost of living. And that’s a longstanding issue. And so, we passed this week the infrastructure bill, bipartisan infrastructure bill. It’s going to be about preparing roads and bridges, and bringing high-speed internet to all families. But also we need to deal with the cost of childcare, the cost of prescription drugs, the cost of housing. And that’s what we intend to do when we get the Build Back Better agenda passed,” said Harris.

Harris’ remarks come as moderate Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) has expressed concerns about the Build Back Better plan making inflation worse.
