WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation following the release of July’s terrible inflation data. Data continues to show that inflation is significantly elevated under President Joe Biden’s administration, with Consumer Price Index increasing 8.5% and Producer Price Index increasing 9.8% over the year. Earlier this week, following the release of the PPI data, Senator Scott released the following statement:
Senator Rick Scott said, “Job creators in Florida and across America are struggling. Prices aren’t dropping, hiring is harder than ever and now Democrats are pouring salt in the wounds of our businesses by raising taxes and greenlighting even more inflation-fueling spending. This is what happens when you have a president who has never run a business, an administration filled with lifelong bureaucrats and a Congress led by career politicians. The only way things will get better is if we stop the reckless government spending, balance the budget and put folks who have commonsense and give a damn back in charge. Joe Biden and the other so-called ‘leaders’ in Washington right now haven’t got a clue and it’s time they put our country first and step aside.”
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.
