Sen. Rick Scott Issues Weekly Update on Biden’s Inflation Crisis
December 16, 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation. Since being elected to the U.S. Senate, Senator Scott has urged government accountability to the American taxpayer. Ahead of Friday’s government funding deadline and following this week’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Senator Scott released the following statement:
As inflation continues to rage and make life harder for American families, Washington Democrats are doubling down on their plans for even more reckless spending and a bigger IRS to snoop on your finances. The Pelosi-Schumer Spending Bill is not just a reckless inflation bomb, it also advances dangerous federal overreach that will impact the lives of nearly every hardworking American and business owner. Since we won’t be putting together a balanced budget in the next few days, the next best thing is a CR that rejects any new reckless spending. When the new Congress convenes in January, Republicans in the Senate, along with a new Republican majority in the House, can begin the important work of building a real, balanced budget, repealing Biden’s 87,000 agent IRS army and its insane $600 transaction reporting threshold, and getting America’s finances back in order. It’s time to stop caving to Democrats and stand up for what the American people want in Washington: less government, less spending and more accountability. That’s what I’m fighting for and I won’t stop until we get it done.
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.
