VIDEO RELEASE Sen. Rick Scott: I Won’t Let Democrats’ Reckless Spending Drive Inflation & Put Taxpayers on the Hook
September 23, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, Senator Rick Scott spoke on the Senate floor to shine light on the Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spend spree that is already hurting families and businesses with skyrocketing inflation. Even as the President Biden’s inflation crisis rages, Democrats in Washington are pushing forward a partisan $5.5 TRILLION spending bill that will raise the national debt to $45 TRILLION. Senator Scott is fighting for real solutions to address Washington’s debt crisis and put the nation on a financially stable path, specifically with his introduction of the Federal Debt Emergency Control Act and Full Faith and Credit Act.
The Full Faith and Credit Act will ensure the federal government prioritizes funding for our military, veterans and seniors should the federal debt ceiling be reached with no action from Democrats to raise or suspend it. Senator Scott has been demanding that Congress take action to address America’s nearly $30 trillion current federal debt and get the reckless spending which fuels it under control. Senator Scott continues to urge his colleagues to refuse to increase the debt ceiling without also enacting true spending reform.
