Sen. Rick Scott Invites Joe Biden to Florida to Debate Inflation and Biden’s Disastrous Economic Agenda

May 10, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, following Joe Biden’s speech bizarrely blaming Senator Rick Scott and Republicans for Biden’s record-breaking inflation, Senator Scott is inviting the president to come to Florida for a debate on inflation and Biden’s disastrous economic agenda. 


Senator Rick Scott said, “I’m glad we’re having a discussion about Joe Biden’s inflation and the impact it’s having on hardworking Americans. We know that Joe Biden can be rolled up to the podium and give a speech from a teleprompter – albeit with a notable amount of rambling incoherence. But I believe the American people deserve a real debate on this issue.


“I’d welcome President Biden to Florida to debate inflation, the supply chain and Biden’s economy that’s hurting hard-working families. I’m sure one of the many small businesses in Florida that’s struggling to keep its doors open with prices rising and supply shortages caused by the Democrats’ economic policies would be happy to host. I’ll even let President Biden use some notes.


“Joe Biden can blame me all he wants. Here’s the truth: he’s the President of the United States, Democrats control the House of Representatives and the Senate. Democrats’ agenda is hurting American families and no amount of spin can change that. If Joe Biden wants to have a real debate on the issues, I’d welcome him to Florida anytime.”


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.
