WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following reports that 87% of Americans are worried about inflation – a 10 point increase since last month.

Senator Rick Scott said, “For months, I’ve been warning about the threat of inflation and urging President Biden and his administration to take action.

For poor and struggling families across the nation, like mine growing up, even a slight increase in the price of household items can be devastating and curb their ability to save and succeed. It’s time for Biden to wake up, abandon his radical tax and spend agenda and focus instead on reining in our out of control spending and debt, and protecting American families.
