Sen. Rick Scott Slams Biden’s Lies About Bad Jobs Report

April 5, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, following the release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ March jobs report that showed part-time employment is up 691,000 jobs in March of 2024, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement along with a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation. Since President Biden took office, his so-called “Bidenomics” agenda has bankrupted American families and forced some into taking on multiple jobs to afford basic necessities like gas, rent and groceries.


Senator Rick Scott said, “While Democrats and their partners in the media are celebrating today’s jobs report and pushing lies about our economy, their fake narrative ignores the truth. This jobs report shows that full-time jobs are down AGAIN – dropping 6,000 month over month – while part-time jobs rose by nearly 700,000. That means that more Americans are working multiple jobs to make ends meet and deal with Biden’s skyrocketing inflation. This month’s jobs report also showed that unemployment among black Americans is up again, rising a full percentage point to 6.4% – the highest it’s been in two years. President Biden has led America into economic disaster and families in Florida and all across America are paying the price for his failures. These figures make President Biden’s recent decision to cut Medicare benefits for the second year in a row even more disgusting. Everywhere you look, American families are suffering more under Biden’s failed leadership and no amount of lies in the press or in White House press releases will change that sad reality for hardworking families. It has never been more clear that we need new leadership in the White House that puts American workers first and brings fiscal sanity back to Washington.”


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.
