Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Declares it ‘Impossible’ to ‘Bring These Prices Down’

Sen. Bob Casey

Video surfaced on Friday of U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) declaring in a political event that it will be “impossible” to lower prices that have increased since President Joe Biden entered the White House.

“I’m not proposing that we’re going to be able to bring these prices down. That’s impossible,” Casey acknowledged in a video posted by Donald Trump Jr. to the social media platform X.

Trump Jr. wrote, “Casey actually has a point” explaining, “It is impossible to bring prices down if we reelect Democrats like him and Biden who gave us this inflation crisis in the first place!”

The campaign of Republican Senate nominee Dave McCormick, the former Trump administration official challenging Casey, quipped, “Talk about absolving himself of responsibility,” in a statement.

Gas and groceries are all up since the start of Joe Biden’s presidency,” the McCormick campaign declared. “Casey has voted for every reckless spending bill that’s come his way, driving the cost of living even higher.”

McCormick’s campaign noted that Casey previously supported Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act in 2022, when his Senate office claimed it would “lower prescription drug and healthcare costs and create clean energy jobs, while reducing the deficit.”

At the time, Casey asserted Biden and Democrats were “tackling” inflation “head on” with the nearly-$800 billion Inflation Reduction Act.

The Democrat additionally spearheaded Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which The Washington Post acknowledged in 2022 “made inflation worse”  while pushing Democratic goals.

Casey narrowly leads McCormick by four percent, according to recent polling, even as former President Donald Trump pulls ahead of Biden in Pennsylvania. The former president on Saturday held a rally in popular vacation destination Wildwood, New Jersey, that reportedly attracted about 100,000 supporters.

McCormick recently labeled Casey “too dangerous for Pennsylvania” in his first major advertising since securing the Republican nomination. The ad also noted Casey has voted with Biden “98 percent of the time” since the Democrat entered the White House.

The Democrat’s campaign released its own ad that touts Casey’s connections to steel workers and Pennsylvania labor.
