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

February 18, 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. According to the latest Producer Price Index (PPI) release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on February 15, inflation remained elevated at historic levels in January increasing 9.7% over the year. Following this announcement of continuing skyrocketing inflation, Senator Scott released the following statement:


Senator Rick Scott said, “Today's Producer Price Index report is more proof that Democrats’ failed policies and reckless spending are causing historically high levels of inflation. It is truly disturbing that even after a year of rising inflation, Democrats, foolishly following Joe Biden, refuse to do anything to fix it. We all see the hurt it's causing. Moms and dads are struggling to fill their tank to get to work and earn paychecks that don’t go as far as they used to. Parents are taking on second, third jobs to put food on the table. These are real families, just like mine growing up, that are suffering and yet Democrats continue to block efforts by me and other Republicans to stop reckless spending and fight this crisis. It's far past time for Joe Biden to step up, stop pointing fingers and do something about it.”


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.
