Sen. Rick Scott: Biden’s Budget Ignores Inflation Crisis Hurting Florida Families

March 28, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, following the release of President Biden’s massively reckless $5.8 TRILLION budget proposal, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement highlighting the failures of Biden’s proposal which ignores the historic inflation he has created.


Senator Rick Scott said, “The mainstream media is quick to prop up Joe Biden and repeat his claims that this budget proposal will move America forward. It’s shameless. Anyone who has watched this administration’s repeated failures knows better than to believe these lies. I have questioned Biden’s top budget officials repeatedly in the Senate Budget Committee and they struggle to answer my basic questions about America’s finances. Where is Joe Biden’s proposal to curb inflation? Where is Joe Biden’s proposal to ensure funding for defense spending that keeps up with the inflation crisis he caused? Where is the funding to secure the border? None of these are addressed in his ‘budget.’ This president only cares about two things: continuing his failed tax and spend agenda, and appeasing the woke left radicals who control his party. With inflation raging and Biden’s agenda making things worse across the board, Americans cannot afford his liberal failures anymore.”


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.
