WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, following the House of Representatives passing the Limit, Save, Grow Act, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement of support for Speaker McCarthy’s sweeping debt limit package that repeals President Biden and Washington Democrats’ obsession with over-taxing and over-spending while reforming the wasteful practices responsible for bringing America’s debt to $31 trillion.
Senator Rick Scott said, “I applaud Speaker McCarthy, the House Freedom Caucus and House Republicans for passing the Limit, Save, Grow Act which I look forward to supporting in the Senate. This legislation is an important step in returning fiscal sanity back to Washington and contains many policies, like the reinstatement and establishment of work requirements for federal benefits, that I have fought hard to pass. It’s time for President Biden to stop threatening our country with a default through his foolish inaction and sit down with Speaker McCarthy to discuss a way forward that best serves American families. There is absolutely no reason for that meeting to be delayed any further.”
