Sen. Rick Scott Slams Passage of Democrats’ Reckless Tax-and-Spending Spree

August 7, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement slamming Democrats’ completely partisan passage of their reckless tax-and-spending spree that spends billions to supersize the IRS, cuts Medicare for seniors, increases the tax burden on American families and businesses and does NOTHING to combat Biden’s raging inflation.


Senator Rick Scott said, “After helping Joe Biden drive America into a recession and create the highest inflation in 40 years, Senate Democrats just doubled down on their attacks by targeting seniors, job creators and every American family. With their new reckless tax-and-spending spree, Democrats have launched a WAR ON SENIORS and a WAR ON AMERICAN JOBS that hikes taxes and will result in far fewer life-saving drugs. Worse still, with a supersized IRS that just got $80 BILLION more in its budget to hire 87,000 more agents, Joe Biden’s federal government is coming after every penny you have with more audits. The Democrats’ radical socialist agenda of bigger government and higher taxes isn’t working. The only thing that will come from this is even MORE SPENDING, HIGHER TAXES AND MORE INFLATION. The Democrats are destroying our country, killing retirements and crushing the American Dream for millions, but they don’t care. This is a sad day for the country, but I will never stop fighting for Florida families and to put an end to Joe Biden’s failed agenda.”
