Sen. Rick Scott Issues Weekly Update on Biden’s Inflation Crisis

June 16, 2023

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 Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) releasing Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Producer Price Index (PPI) numbers for May, which showed inflation continued to rise. Since Joe Biden became president, CPI has risen 16.3% and PPI has risen 16.6%.


Earlier this week, following the latest CPI announcement by the BLS, Senator Scott released the following statement.


Senator Rick Scott said, “As I continue to travel around Florida and talk to folks, one thing that is top of mind for Floridians is how hard inflation is hurting them. For over two years now, inflation has been plaguing families’ bank accounts and forcing them to make tough choices like choosing between food on the table, saving for retirement, or putting money away for a rainy day. It’s hard to think of a single way that people’s lives have improved under Joe Biden’s failed leadership. He is destroying our country with his radical political agenda that has eroded trust in our institutions and brought inflation to levels not seen in decades. American families deserve better and I won’t stop fighting to bring fiscal sanity back to Washington and stop Biden from bringing more harm to our country.”


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.
