Inside Politics
May 11, 2022

Today's new inflation numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show the Consumer Price Index rose 8.3% in April compared with last year. While that's a big number, it's down from a 40-year high. Looking at it month-to-month, inflation was 0.3% in April, down from the 1.2% gain in March. But a closely watched data point was up, not down. Today's show begins with a look inside the numbers with CNN's Christine Romans. 

Also in today's episode: brand new CNN reporting on the Jan 6 committee's plan for a public hearing.
