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

June 7, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, following the release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ May jobs report showing that year over year, part-time employment is up 1.5 million jobs in May—a 5.8% increase, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement along with a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation. This jobs report confirms that the Biden administration’s handling of the economy has continued to increase inflation, and forced hardworking American’s into taking on multiple jobs to make ends meet. In addition to this staggering fact, native-born employment fell while foreign-born employment increased. Meanwhile, veteran employment decreased over the year, while government jobs at all levels continue to rise. This jobs report is another reminder that the Bidenomics agenda is working against the American people, and ripping the chance of the American Dream away them.


Senator Rick Scott said, “It’s time for fiscal responsibility at the White House and in Congress and for the Biden administration to stop lying about job growth. Under Joe Biden’s watch and his so-called economic plan, known as ‘Bidenomics,’ full-time jobs have decreased while the price of groceries, gas, rent and mortgages have skyrocketed. Unemployment is now 4% and we now have more Americans working multiple jobs and part time jobs. In what world can the administration say their handling of the economy is good? The Biden administration has killed jobs and the American people are feeling the consequences every day. Americans shouldn’t have to work two and three jobs just to make ends meet. It’s time Washington started living within its means and I won’t stop fighting until that happens.”


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.
