This is the March 8, 2022 hearing on "Inflation Equation: Corporate Profiteering, Supply Chain Bottlenecks, and COVID-19 [Coronavirus Disease 2019]," held before the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Maxine Waters: "We are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects, including higher prices at the grocery store and higher monthly rents that are taking a toll on household budgets. Today, I expect we will hear some of our colleagues attempt to pin inflation on the successful American Rescue Plan, a bill that helped attack this deadly virus and get millions of people vaccinated, supported 6 million small businesses, and helped fuel the economic growth, while resulting in the first reduction of Federal debt seen since the Obama Administration." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Demond Drummer, Tyler Goodspeed, Rakeen Mabud, Sandeep Vaheesan, and Mark Zandi.
