Sen. Rick Scott: Jobs Reports Show Why Americans Can’t Trust Anything Biden Says on the Economy

December 8, 2023

Issues Weekly Update on Biden’s Inflation Crisis

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, following the release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ November Jobs report, Senator Rick Scott released a statement calling out the Biden administration for its continued lies and spin to make the American people think the economy is thriving. This morning's report claimed job growth of 199,000 jobs, but approximately 41,000 of those were union workers returning to the workforce following the recent auto and writers guild strikes. Additionally, Senator Scott shared a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation caused by Biden and Democrats’ socialist policies and reckless government spending that continues to wreak havoc on the economy and shrink budgets for families as everyday prices continue to skyrocket.


Senator Rick Scott said, “At every opportunity, this administration misleads the American people to distract from the failures of Bidenomics, and this morning’s job report is another disgusting example of its lies. It is absurd that Biden would count the 41,000 jobs returning to the workforce after a strike as new job growth. I guess it shouldn’t surprise us that the same president taking credit for creating millions of jobs that were only in jeopardy because his party shut the country down, is now doing the same for those returning from a strike that his administration helped cause. It is shameful that the mainstream media hasn’t held him accountable for his phony job creation numbers and is now going to let him get away with this. The Biden administration can try as hard as it wants to confuse the American people with a web of lies, but families in Florida know the facts: inflation is skyrocketing, families are struggling to make ends meet, national credit card debt hit a record high, and the jobs market is anything but raging. American prosperity isn’t built on lies and fantasy, it's built on hard work and real results. Joe Biden has neither and we are sick and tired of dealing with his failures.”


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 and HERE for Senator Scott’s Quarterly Economic Snapshot.
