Sen. Rick Scott: Hypocritical Democrats Push Americans to “Do As I Say, Not As I Do”

September 14, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement on hypocritical Democrats pushing vaccine mandates for private sector businesses.


Senator Rick Scott said, “What is happening with Democrats in Washington needs to be called out. For years, Democrats have made decision after decision that shows they want one set of rules for American families and another set of rules for themselves. When Democrats passed Obamacare over a decade ago, they forced Americans to change doctors and insurance plans, but wanted to exempt Congress from the law. Now, President Biden and the Democrats want to mandate vaccines for everyone in the private sector, but not members of Congress. Let me be clear: I think the vaccine is the best way to defeat COVID. That's why I got the vaccine and encourage all Americans to talk with their doctor and consider doing the same. But mandates imposed by the government are wrong and what Democrats in Washington are doing is insane. This isn’t just hypocrisy. It’s a disgrace and a naked socialist power grab. That’s what systemic socialism is: a whole bunch of rules the American people have to follow that the ruling class doesn’t.”
