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

July 14, 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 June, which showed inflation continued to rise. Since Joe Biden became president, CPI and PPI have both risen 16.6%.


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


Senator Rick Scott said, “If Joe Biden thinks that his economic policies are actually helping American families live the American dream, he’s more delusional than we feared. Under ‘Bidenomics’ families are left with massive inflation and paychecks that don’t go as far as they struggle to put food on the table, and turning to food banks for the first time in their lives. I have heard from families across Florida who are left worrying about how to pay bills and with less money in bank accounts and retirement funds. It’s got to stop. We've got to get this skyrocketing inflation and reckless spending under control and stop expecting our kids and grandkids to pay the bill. That’s how we protect the American dream.”


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.
