WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Senator Rick Scott joined Martha MacCallum on Fox News’ The Faulkner Focus this morning to address America’s tanking economy, skyrocketing inflation and Democrats’ radical agenda that continues to hurt families and destroy the country. Senator Scott also responded to Joe Biden’s continued confusion and lies about his plan to rescue America.
In the interview, Senator Rick Scott said, “I had the opportunity to listen to what the President said. First off, almost every sentence was a complete lie.
Since he's been in office, inflation is 8.5%. We just had a negative GDP, down 1.4%. So you see people are struggling all across this country.
I'm the biggest tax cutter probably in the Senate right now—or even up here. I cut taxes 100 times. Since Joe Biden got into politics, think of what's happened. Taxes have gone up on Americans constantly. On top of that, he's taken the debt of this country from under $1 trillion to $30 trillion. His plan that he put out will take the debt of this country to $45 trillion, and has massive tax increases on everybody. My plan is reduce taxes. Let's get everybody back to work with regard to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
When I was governor of Florida, on top of cutting taxes 100 times, and by the way, reducing the debt of the state by a third, what I also did was I fix the pension plan. Joe Biden, since he's been around, made sure that Social Security or Medicare are in a worse position every year—Medicare goes bankrupt in four years. He doesn’t want to fix it. Democrats don't want to fix it.
I want to have a conversation. Let's fix these programs so they last.
What Democrats are doing, what Joe Biden is doing, he just keeps passing the buck.
We've got to rescue this country, not take it down Joe Biden's horrible path.”
