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

July 5, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, following the release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ June jobs report showing that year over year, full-time jobs have fallen by 1.6 million, while part-time jobs are up 1.8 million, Senator Rick Scott released a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation. The June report also included a revision of -111,000 jobs reported in recent months. This confirms the Biden administration’s failed economic policies have created a pattern of increased inflation forcing hardworking American’s into taking on multiple jobs to make ends meet, and is another reminder that the Bidenomics agenda is working against the American people and ripping the chance of the American Dream away from them. Earlier this week, ahead of the report, Senator Scott released the following statement.


Senator Rick Scott said, “Ahead of this week’s jobs report, I want to make something very clear to Floridians: in this latest report the Biden administration will again try to spin the data and trick folks into thinking our economy is on the right track. Sadly it's a lie. We want a strong economy and a great jobs market, but this administration has had to revise down nearly every single jobs report since Biden took office because his radical agenda is killing opportunity for American families. For example, the White House isn't telling you that there are 100 million working age and able-bodied Americans who have abandoned the workforce because Democrat policies across the country are incentivizing government welfare programs over jobs and self-reliance. That’s terrible for our country.


"Floridians are smart and know the truth, and they can feel the impacts of the Bidenomics agenda working against them. In previous months the only ‘job growth’ actually seen was folks taking on multiple part-time jobs because full-time jobs are disappearing as a result Democrat policies which make it difficult for American companies to compete globally. That means that hardworking Americans cannot afford to buy necessities like gas and groceries on their current paychecks. 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 a big change in the White House because the Bidenomics agenda is one big failure after another. Florida families deserve better, and I am working hard every day to bring them the change they deserve.”


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.
