Sen. Rick Scott is Fighting to Reduce Inflation for Floridians

Sen. Rick Scott: As Inflation Continues to Plague American Families, Joe Biden Looks the Other Way
Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following the Bureau of Economic Analysis release for September showing that Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) Price Index, which measures prices paid by consumers for goods and services, rose 6.2% over the year. This data shows how President Biden’s inflation crisis, caused by his and Democrats’ socialist policies and reckless government spending, continues to shrink budgets for families as the prices of everyday goods continue to skyrocket.

Senator Rick Scott said, “While Biden lies about the state of the economy, Americans are experiencing some of the highest inflation in their lifetime with no end in sight. And just like Joe Biden, the failed liberal politicians in Washington and media elites in New York and DC are happy to look the other way as American families suffer every day due to this president’s failures. Record-breaking inflation, sky-high mortgage rates, horribly low labor participation, increasingly burdensome government regulation, rising energy costs… it’s all the result of Joe Biden’s war on American workers, our energy independence and the innovation that makes our country great. While the ruling class ignores this reality, hardworking Americans are making clear that they are FED UP with out-of-touch Joe Biden and his incompetence. I hear them loud and clear. I grew up in a poor family and watched my mom struggle to make ends meet and keep food on our table. It makes me FURIOUS to see this president push the American dream out of reach for families like mine growing up. America should always be the land of opportunity and I won’t stop fighting to end Biden’s radical, socialist agenda and return power back to the American people.”

Sen. Rick Scott Slams Joe Biden’s Economic Lies on National Debt After Spending Billions in Taxpayer Dollars
Senator Rick Scott issued the following statement after President Joe Biden delivered a speech spewing lie after lie about his disastrous economic record and ignoring the real consequences of his radical tax and spend agenda that’s caused the U.S. debt to rise above $31,000,000,000,000. Senator Scott also released a weekly update on his actions to address America’s debt crisis and rising inflation. Since being elected to the U.S. Senate, Senator Scott has urged government accountability to the American taxpayer and released multiple proposals to rein in the reckless government spending that’s fueling the inflation crisis currently crushing American families with skyrocketing prices.

Senator Rick Scott said, “Joe Biden’s disgusting attempts to gaslight the American people and feed them lies about his failed economic agenda have reached a new level of insanity. He pretends to care about the economy and American families in scripted White House speeches, but his actions show that he couldn’t care less about the pain he’s causing. Americans are SICK AND TIRED of it. Biden hasn’t reduced deficits...everyone knows that U.S. debt is racing higher under his tax and spend agenda. Everyone knows that their retirement accounts are bleeding thanks to his failed economic policies. Everyone knows that he actually hasn’t done a thing to fix the problems facing hardworking Americans – problems HE CREATED. Families in Florida and all across our country can see through the lies and it’s time for the press to step up, stop giving this failed president a free pass and hold his administration accountable. I have been fighting to stop Biden and the Democrats from blowing money and making inflation even worse, and I won’t stop.”

Sen. Rick Scott on CPI Report: Biden’s Raging Inflation is Crushing Floridians Recovering From Ian
Following the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Senator Rick Scott released the below statement highlighting the need to implement substantive fiscal reforms to end the ongoing inflation crisis fueled by the Biden administration’s reckless tax-and-spend agenda. September’s CPI data shows that there has been significant inflation nearly every month of Biden’s presidency. While year-over-year consumer prices increased 8.2% in September, rent prices reached the largest increase since 1982.

Senator Rick Scott said, “While hundreds of thousands of Floridians are working hard to recover from Hurricane Ian, today’s CPI report is an infuriating reminder that Joe Biden’s raging inflation is still crushing families across the Sunshine State. Biden’s inflation causes pain for families every day, but in the aftermath of a devastating hurricane, high prices are a hurdle that families in our state shouldn’t have to deal with. If President Biden truly cares about helping Floridians, he’ll stop recklessly wasting tax dollars on a failed, woke agenda, refocus his administration on the core responsibilities of the federal government and demand a balanced budget to finally end his inflation nightmare.”

According to today’s CPI release, price increases over the year include:
  • Rent: +7.2%
  • Chicken: +17.2%
  • Dairy: +15.9%
  • Coffee: +15.7%
  • Gasoline: +18.2%
  • Butter and margarine: +32.2%

Sen. Rick Scott on PPI Inflation Report: Skyrocketing Inflation Makes Hurricane Ian Recovery More Challenging
Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following the latest Producer Price Index (PPI) release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), which showed inflation continued to rise in September increasing 8.5% over the year—higher than expected.

Senator Rick Scott said, “Skyrocketing inflation has been hurting Florida families every day for nearly two years. But, when times get tough, inflation becomes an unbearable kick for families trying to get back on their feet. Make no mistake—Joe Biden’s skyrocketing inflation is a huge roadblock for so many families now fighting to recover from Hurricane Ian. Nevertheless, we won’t allow Biden’s failures to keep Florida down. Floridians are strong and we are so grateful for all of the non-profits and volunteers who are selflessly serving families across Florida who have been devastated by Hurricane Ian. Everyone is working to deliver more with dollars that buy less. Together, Floridians will get through this difficult recovery and in Washington, I’ll be fighting as hard as ever to get reckless spending under control and end the crushing pain caused by Biden’s raging inflation.”

According to today’s PPI release, price increases over the year in September included:
  • Corn: +36.5%
  • Coal: +53.8%
  • Grains: +30.4%
  • Eggs: +97.3%
  • Turkeys: +38.2
  • Home Heating Oil: +73.2%
  • Construction: +23.1%

Sens. Rick Scott, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in Fox News: Republicans must stop caving to Democrats. America needs clean bill to fund government until new Congress
Senators Rick Scott, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee wrote an op-ed for Fox News demanding that Republicans unite behind a clean government funding bill that simply maintains current federal spending bills until a new Congress begins in January 2023. After two years of Democrats’ radical agenda and reckless spending that wrecked America’s economy and drove the nation into more than $30 TRILLION in debt, the last thing American families need is for Congress to greenlight one more liberal priority that will simply send America further in the wrong direction.

In the 
op-edSenators Rick Scott, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee wrote, “Month after month for the last two years, Democrats and President Joe Biden have been able to advance their radical agenda while Republicans have largely been sidelined. Well, we just got back to Washington after spending August back at home, and families in Florida, Texas, and Utah are FURIOUS. They are sick and tired of watching Washington’s broken status quo continue while they deal with the consequences of reckless spending in Congress. Who can blame them? As they’ve felt the pain of rising inflation month after month, they’ve had to watch from afar as too many Republicans have caved to the demands of the Democrats carrying out an agenda led by radical leftists in the White House and on Capitol Hill. That must end. It’s time for Republicans to stand united and demand that Congress pass a clean continuing resolution (CR) that simply maintains current federal spending levels—and not a penny more—until a new Congress begins. 

Now, before the liberal media starts losing its mind, let’s make a few things clear. First, forcing Congress to pass a clean CR will not result in ANY cuts to funding or services.

Second, this is not some convoluted scheme to cause a government shutdown…This is about accountability and doing what’s right for American taxpayers. That’s it.

We must ensure Washington prioritizes the needs of the American people by focusing on things like getting our economy back on track, reducing inflation, combatting violent crime, and keeping our families safe. America is more than $30 TRILLION in debt. The worst move imaginable would be to gift the Democrats one last liberal spending spree in December as they leave power.

It's time for Republicans to stand up and unite…We must show strength now and prove to the American people that we will end the madness in Washington and return power back to them, where it rightly belongs.”
