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

August 11, 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 July, which showed inflation continued to rise. Since Joe Biden became president, CPI has risen 16.8% and PPI has risen 16.9%.

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

Senator Rick Scott said, “The Biden administration continues to hurt Florida families and businesses with its backward ‘Bidenomics’ policies without any plan to fix it. This week, I have been traveling Florida to hear what issues families are facing, and in each big city or small town I stop in one thing keeps getting mentioned—inflation. Folks all over Florida are struggling thanks to President Biden’s reckless tax-and-spend agenda. I continue to hear from parents who are having to make tough choices between gas and groceries, or our seniors having to come out of retirement to get another job—that is a scary reality for Floridians and it is unacceptable Biden has let it go this far. Folks in Florida have struggled for over two years with Biden’s inflation crisis that just continues to skyrocket out of control and I’m fighting like hell in Washington to end the broken status quo and put an end to it. I will never stop fighting to make Washington work for the hardworking Floridians who are trying their best to make ends meet and take care of their families. We have to stop Washington’s reckless spending and get our house in order.”

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.
