Sen. Rick Scott Issues Weekly Update on Biden’s Inflation Crisis

January 28, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation following the announcement that the Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) price index increased 5.8 percent from one year ago, the highest reading since 1982—a clear indication that Democrats’ reckless, socialist spending agenda is only further fueling President Biden’s raging inflation crisis.


Senator Rick Scott said, “We’ve now seen a year of America under Joe Biden’s leadership and one thing is abundantly clear: families are far worse off now than they were then. Inflation is at a 40-year high and still RAGING higher. Poor families, like mine growing up, can’t get by. Millions more are struggling to make ends meet while store shelves are empty. More folks are relying on food banks and it’s getting harder and harder to help them as prices climb.


“This is Joe Biden’s America. This is what happens when you foolishly push a socialist agenda, pay people not to work, waste TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS in taxpayer money and then lie to the American people and tell them everything is okay. It’s time for Joe Biden to wake up, listen to the American people, remember that he is the President of the United States and lead. Our country can’t afford another year of his miserable missteps and failures.”


Since being elected to the U.S. Senate, Senator Scott has repeatedly urged action to address America’s debt crisis and the harmful effects of inflation. Click HERE for a comprehensive list of his statements and actions on this urgent issue.
