WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, as Joe Biden’s inflation crisis continues to rage and chip away at the budgets and paychecks of hardworking American families, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement highlighting the latest report from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming the Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spend agenda will raise taxes on EVERY AMERICAN FAMILY. This reckless tax-and-spend proposal again breaks Biden’s promise not raise taxes on Americans making less than $400,000 per year.


Senator Rick Scott said, “It’s never been a secret that Democrats want to raise taxes on hardworking American families, and now the non-partisan JCT has made clear just how disastrous their plans truly are. Families in Florida and across the country are already paying Biden’s raging incompetence tax as prices at the grocery store and the pump keep climbing, but that’s not enough for the radical Left—they want the Feds to get more of your money too. This isn’t just a tax hike on giant corporations or the wealthiest Americans—the Democrats are raising taxes on EVERY SINGLE INCOME BRACKET. It shows once again that in Washington, there are those of us that make plans and fight every day to cut taxes, and then there are the Democrats who put raising taxes as priority #1. Tax increases are never the answer, but pushing higher taxes during a record-breaking inflation crisis is shameful and disgusting. I will NEVER support raising taxes and will fight this reckless tax-and-spend agenda with every tool at my disposal.”
