Sen. Rick Scott on the Senate Floor: Biden’s Inflation is Hurting Families

July 28, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott spoke on the Senate floor on how Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spending spree is causing rising inflation and hurting American families. Senator Scott also led several of his colleagues in a press conference today on how Congress can work to get government spending under control, including passing his Federal Debt Emergency Control Act to require that two-thirds of the Senate vote to increase the debt before approving any bill with deficit spending, and his amendment to the Senate Rules to require that all committee reports include inflationary impact statements so Americans can see the true impacts of government spending.

Senator Rick Scott said, “Biden and the Democrats say they care about Americans – but they have done absolutely nothing to help families struggling to keep up with inflation. We are nearly $30 TRILLION in debt, but Democrats have no plans to slow down their spending. Now, Biden and the Democrats want to spend another $5.5 trillion on their liberal priorities, with no consideration to how this might impact families. Their message to the American people is clear: they don’t care about inflation. They don’t care that their reckless spending is causing prices to skyrocket. If that’s the cost of getting their liberal wish list, so be it. It’s time to wake up and take action to get government spending under control – our children and grandchildren are depending on it.”
