VIDEO RELEASE Sen. Rick Scott: We Can Combat Threat of Communist China Without Bankrupting our Nation

June 8, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following his opposition on the Senate floor to the Senate’s massive “China bill,” the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act of 2021, on the grounds that it drives the nation further into massive debt without doing enough to combat the threat of Communist China.

Senator Rick Scott said, “I’ve been a vocal opponent of Communist China’s aggression and the threat it poses to our national security and democracy around the world. We have to work together to combat our enemy in this new Cold War but we must do so without bankrupting our nation. We cannot drive our nation further into debt with a $250 billion bill that doesn’t do enough. There is a day of reckoning for all of this that we cannot ignore. Spending beyond our means has consequences, like the rising inflation we’re seeing across America. I'll never stop fighting to protect the commitment I made to Florida taxpayers – to be responsible stewards of their dollars.”
