Sen. Rick Scott Slams Biden’s Silence & Appeasement On Anniversary of Cuban Democracy Demonstrations
As the Cuban people mark one year since the July 11 start of their brave marches and demonstrations for democracy across the island, Senator Rick Scott released the following video and statement slamming President Joe Biden’s continued silence and appeasement of the illegitimate communist Cuban regime. Last month, Senator Scott reiterated his call for President Biden to end his disgusting appeasement of Castro/Díaz-Canel regime and demanded that Biden again forcefully call for the release of all July 11 political prisoners. The Castro/Díaz-Canel regime continues to brutally oppress and torture innocent Cubans, and is unjustly jailing more than 1,000 democracy activists, some as young as 14 years old.

Senator Rick Scott said, “Today, the world marks one year since the brave Cuban people took to the streets to peacefully demand freedom and democracy. Sadly, we also remember the horrific images of violence and oppression we saw as the illegitimate communist Cuban regime, terrified of the freedom movement, viciously cracked down on the people with mass jailing, beatings and even murder. While some ran forward to stand with the Cuban people and support their movement for democracy, Joe Biden fell silent. President Biden’s refusal to stand up for democracy in Cuba is nothing but shameful weakness and a stain on the integrity of the office he holds. For a year, I’ve repeatedly challenged President Biden to rise to this occasion and rally the freedom-loving governments and people of the world to strongly and unapologetically support the Cuban people crying out for freedom. I’ve urged him to regularly denounce the illegitimate Castro/Díaz-Canel regime and demand the release of José Daniel Ferrer and the more than 1,000 unjustly jailed and tortured democracy activists. Many of these innocent prisoners have been disappeared by the Cuban regime and haven’t been seen or heard from by their families for days, weeks and months. Biden has refused to demand proof of life for these innocent Cubans or make clear to the regime that the world is watching its human rights atrocities. Instead, just weeks ago, he chose to prop up the oppressive regime with pathetic appeasement policies and sanctions relief. These actions bring shame to the United States, do NOTHING to help the people and only help line the pockets of the regime, its thugs and its evil partners in Russia, Iran and Communist China. This failed president has done more to unite America’s enemies than bring together the world’s democracies for a common cause. Biden’s appeasement is horrible for U.S. national security, a threat to stability to Latin America and a danger to the power of democracy across the world.
As we mark the anniversary of the July 11 democracy demonstrations, I again demand action from the president. It is far past time for Joe Biden to lead, but I doubt he will show up. I expect the president will try to hide behind the words of his State Department and claim false leadership. That’s nonsense. Statements from bureaucrats and tweets from an embassy that shouldn’t even exist will never be enough, but it is all we can expect from this weak and incompetent president. With or without Biden, we will continue to unapologetically stand with the Cuban people. A new day of freedom in Cuba is closer than ever before and I won’t stop fighting until we see an end to the oppressive Castro/Díaz-Canel regime.” Read more HERE.

El Senador Rick Scott critica el silencio y el apaciguamiento de Biden en el aniversario de las manifestaciones por la democracia en Cuba
Mientras el pueblo cubano conmemora un año desde el inicio de sus valientes marchas y manifestaciones por la democracia en toda la isla del 11 de Julio, el Senador Rick Scott publicó el siguiente video y declaración, criticando el continuo silencio y apaciguamiento al ilegítimo régimen comunista cubano por parte del Presidente Joe Biden. El mes pasado, el Senador Scott reiteró su llamado al Presidente Biden para que ponga fin a su repugnante apaciguamiento al régimen de Castro/Díaz-Canel y exigió que Biden vuelva a pedir enérgicamente la liberación de todos los presos políticos del 11 de Julio. El régimen de Castro/Díaz-Canel continúa oprimiendo brutalmente y torturando a cubanos inocentes, y está encarcelando injustamente a más de 1000 activistas por la democracia, algunos de tan solo 14 años.
El Senador Rick Scott dijo: “Hoy el mundo marca un año desde que el valiente pueblo cubano salió a las calles para exigir pacíficamente la libertad y la democracia. Lamentablemente, también recordamos las horribles imágenes de violencia y opresión que vimos cuando el ilegítimo régimen comunista cubano, aterrorizado por el movimiento por la libertad, reprimió brutalmente al pueblo con encarcelamientos masivos, palizas e incluso asesinatos. Mientras algunos corrían para apoyar al pueblo cubano y su movimiento por la democracia, Joe Biden guardó silencio. La negativa del Presidente Biden a defender la democracia en Cuba no es más que una vergonzosa debilidad y una mancha en la integridad del cargo que ocupa. Durante un año, he desafiado repetidamente al Presidente Biden a estar a la altura de esta ocasión y reunir a los gobiernos y pueblos del mundo amantes de la libertad para que apoyen con fuerza y sin excusas al pueblo cubano que clama por la libertad. Lo he instado a denunciar periódicamente al ilegítimo régimen de Castro/Díaz-Canel y exigir la liberación de José Daniel Ferrer y los más de 1.000 activistas por la democracia injustamente encarcelados y torturados. Muchos de estos prisioneros inocentes han desaparecido en manos del régimen cubano y sus familias no han visto ni oído de ellos durante días, semanas y meses. Biden se ha negado a exigir fe de vida de estos inocentes cubanos o dejarle claro al régimen que el mundo está observando sus atrocidades contra los derechos humanos. En cambio, hace solo unas semanas, optó por reforzar al régimen opresivo con sus patéticas políticas de apaciguamiento y alivio de sanciones. Estas acciones avergüenzan a los Estados Unidos, no hacen NADA para ayudar al pueblo y solo ayudan a llenar los bolsillos del régimen, sus matones y sus despiadados socios en Rusia, Irán y la China comunista. Este Presidente fallido ha hecho más para unir a los enemigos de Estados Unidos que para reunir a las democracias del mundo por una causa común. El apaciguamiento de Biden es horrible para la seguridad nacional de Estados Unidos, una amenaza para la estabilidad de América Latina y un peligro para el poder de la democracia en todo el mundo”. 
“Al conmemorar el aniversario de las manifestaciones democráticas del 11 de julio, exijo nuevamente que el Presidente actúe. Ya es hora de que Joe Biden lidere, pero dudo que aparezca. Espero que el Presidente intente esconderse detrás de las palabras de su Departamento de Estado y reivindique su falso liderazgo. Esto no tiene sentido. Declaraciones de burócratas y tweets de una embajada que ni debería existir nunca serán suficientes, pero es todo lo que podemos esperar de este Presidente débil e incompetente. Con o sin Biden, seguiremos apoyando sin excusas al pueblo cubano. Un nuevo día de libertad en Cuba está más cerca que nunca y no dejaré de luchar hasta que veamos el fin del régimen opresivo de Castro/Díaz-Canel”. Lea más AQUÍ.

SEN. RICK SCOTT: CONFIRMED—DEMOCRATS RAISING TAXES ON EVERY AMERICAN
As Joe Biden’s inflation crisis continues to rage and chip away at the budgets and paychecks of hardworking American families, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement highlighting the latest report from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming the Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spend agenda will raise taxes on EVERY AMERICAN FAMILY. This reckless tax-and-spend proposal again breaks Biden’s promise not raise taxes on Americans making less than $400,000 per year.
Senator Rick Scott said, “It’s never been a secret that Democrats want to raise taxes on hardworking American families, and now the non-partisan JCT has made clear just how disastrous their plans truly are. Families in Florida and across the country are already paying Biden’s raging incompetence tax as prices at the grocery store and the pump keep climbing, but that’s not enough for the radical Left—they want the Feds to get more of your money too. This isn’t just a tax hike on giant corporations or the wealthiest Americans—the Democrats are raising taxes on EVERY SINGLE INCOME BRACKET. It shows once again that in Washington, there are those of us that make plans and fight every day to cut taxes, and then there are the Democrats who put raising taxes as priority #1. Tax increases are never the answer, but pushing higher taxes during a record-breaking inflation crisis is shameful and disgusting. I will NEVER support raising taxes and will fight this reckless tax-and-spend agenda with every tool at my disposal.” Read more HERE.

Sen. Rick Scott: Biden's Shameful Appeasement Enables Torture of José Daniel Ferrer
Senator Rick Scott released the following statement after receiving disturbing reports from the family of José Daniel Ferrer, the unjustly jailed Cuban democracy and human rights activist. José Daniel’s latest visit with his family, which was the first to be allowed by the illegitimate communist Cuban regime in nearly 40 days, was restricted to just one minute. This brief visit confirmed to his loved ones the dire health condition and the brutal and inhumane treatment and torture José Daniel has been subjected to. According to José Daniel’s family, he continues suffering from severe headaches, mouth bleeding, severe malnutrition and insomnia, and recently developed gastritis and a serious skin infection – all products of the cruel torture and inhumane treatment from the regime.
Senator Scott has worked with the Organization of American States (OAS) to demand that the regime allow outside medical treatment for those unjustly jailed and he is again calling on President Joe Biden to engage on this issue and join these calls. This week, Senator Scott and leaders around the world marked the one year anniversary of the July 11 democracy demonstrations in Cuba, which the president completely ignored and failed to issue any public statement on.
Senator Rick Scott said, “It has been more than a YEAR since José Daniel Ferrer was unjustly detained in isolation, and has being subjected to physical and psychological torture by the illegitimate communist Cuban regime. According to his family, José Daniel has gone 3 MONTHS without sunlight, MONTHS deprived of receiving medicine, medical treatment or food, and he recently went 38 DAYS without contact with his family. What has Joe Biden had to say about the horrific treatment of José Daniel and the nearly 1,000 other innocent Cubans facing these brutal conditions? NOTHING. All Biden has done is appease the illegitimate Castro/Díaz-Canel regime and ease sanctions, further fueling its oppression of the Cuban people.
It is absolutely unacceptable that Joe Biden stayed silent on the anniversary of the July 11 democracy demonstrations and I won’t let him continue to ignore the suffering of José Daniel and the Cuban people. José Daniel’s family reports that his health is rapidly declining and he is being subjected to frequent horrific torture by Castro/Díaz-Canel’s thugs. Despite all of that, his conscience and courage have not broken. His response has not waivered; he is still proclaiming: ‘ABAJO LA DICTADURA, ABAJO DÍAZ-CANEL, ABAJO LOS CASTRO.’
Joe Biden needs to show even an ounce of the courage and determination we’ve seen from José Daniel. The president needs to finally STAND UP for freedom in Cuba, demand an urgent humanitarian medical visit for José Daniel and join us in calling for the immediate release of all jailed democracy activists. Continued silence and appeasement only make Biden and his administration more complicit in the torture and deaths of innocent Cubans.” Read more HERE.

Senador Rick Scott: El vergonzoso apaciguamiento de Biden permite torturar a José Daniel Ferrer
El Senador Rick Scott emitió la siguiente declaración luego de recibir informes inquietantes de la familia de José Daniel Ferrer, el activista cubano por la democracia y los derechos humanos injustamente encarcelado. La última visita de José Daniel con su familia, que fue la primera permitida por el ilegítimo régimen comunista cubano en casi 40 días, se restringió a solo un minuto y confirmó a sus seres queridos el grave estado de salud y las torturas brutales y el trato cruel e inhumano al que José Daniel ha sido sometido. Según la familia de José Daniel, éste sigue padeciendo fuertes dolores de cabeza, sangrado bucal, desnutrición severa e insomnio, gastritis de reciente aparición y una grave infección en la piel, todo producto de las crueles torturas y tratos inhumanos del régimen.
El Senador Scott ha trabajado con la Organización de los Estados Americanos (OEA) para exigir que el régimen permita el tratamiento médico externo para los encarcelados injustamente y vuelve a pedir al Presidente Joe Biden que se involucre en este tema y se una a estos llamados. Esta semana, el Senador Scott y líderes de todo el mundo conmemoraron el primer aniversario de las manifestaciones democráticas del 11 de Julio en Cuba, que el Presidente ignoró por completo y no emitió ninguna declaración pública al respecto.
El Senador Rick Scott dijo: “Ha pasado más de un AÑO desde que José Daniel Ferrer fue injustamente detenido en aislamiento y sometido a torturas físicas y psicológicas por parte del ilegítimo régimen comunista cubano. Según su familia, José Daniel lleva 3 MESES sin luz solar, MESES privado de recibir medicinas, tratamiento médico o alimentos, y recientemente estuvo 38 DÍAS sin contacto con su familia. ¿Qué ha dicho Joe Biden sobre el horrible trato de José Daniel y los casi 1,000 cubanos inocentes que enfrentan estas condiciones brutales? NADA. Todo lo que Biden ha hecho es apaciguar al régimen ilegítimo de Castro/Díaz-Canel y aliviar las sanciones, alimentando aún más su opresión al pueblo cubano.
Es absolutamente inaceptable que Joe Biden haya permanecido callado en el aniversario de las manifestaciones democráticas del 11 de Julio y no dejaré que siga ignorando el sufrimiento de José Daniel y del pueblo cubano. La familia de José Daniel informa que su salud está empeorando rápidamente y que los matones de Castro/Díaz-Canel lo someten a torturas horribles y frecuentes. A pesar de todo eso, su conciencia y coraje no se han quebrantado. Su respuesta no ha decaído, y sigue proclamando: ABAJO LA DICTADURA, ABAJO DÍAZ-CANEL, ABAJO LOS CASTRO.
Joe Biden debe mostrar aunque sea una pizca del coraje y la determinación que hemos visto en José Daniel. El Presidente debe finalmente LEVANTARSE por la libertad en Cuba, exigir una visita médica humanitaria urgente para José Daniel y unirse a nosotros para pedir la liberación inmediata de todos los activistas por la democracia encarcelados. El silencio y el apaciguamiento continuos solo hacen que Biden y su administración sean aún más cómplices de la tortura y muerte de cubanos inocentes”. Lea más AQUÍ.

Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio Urge Army and Air Force to Address Lack of Childcare for 7th Special Forces Group
Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio sent a letter to U.S. Army Secretary Christine Wormuth and U.S. Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall regarding the lack of childcare facilities for members of the 7th Special Forces Group (7th SFG) at Camp Bull Simons on Eglin Air Force Base.

Sen. Rick Scott on CPI Inflation Report: Biden’s Inflation Incompetence Tax Rages to 9.1%
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. June’s CPI data shows that there has been significant inflation nearly every month of Biden’s presidency. Year over year consumer prices increased 9.1% in June, a 41-year high.
Senator Rick Scott said, “Joe Biden’s raging inflation crisis is a horrible tax on every American family, and today’s CPI report shows that tax just went up AGAIN. It is unacceptable that hardworking families in Florida are paying the price for Biden’s incompetence, and now he wants them to fork over even more of their money by raising their taxes. That’s right, as inflation hits 9.1% Joe Biden and the heartless Democrats in Congress are answering a historic crisis of high prices with tax hikes. It’s hard to believe, but it’s true, and their brainless plan will only drive America further into the financial hole Biden started digging his first day in office. I’ve heard from retirees having to go back to work because their social security checks aren’t cutting it, moms and dads getting second jobs to put food on the table and people who are turning to food banks for the first time in their lives. It’s all because of Joe Biden’s complete incompetence and obsession with reckless spending. Biden has failed American families in almost every way imaginable and it’s time for him to end the madness and resign.” Read more HERE.

Sen. Rick Scott Celebrates Unveiling of Statue Honoring Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune in U.S. Capitol
Prior to the unveiling of the Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune statue in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement:
Senator Rick Scott said, “As Florida’s Governor, I was proud to sign a bill in 2018 to commission a statue of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune to represent our state in the U.S. Capitol and honor her leadership in education, which led to the founding of Bethune-Cookman University. Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune was a wonderful person and a great Floridian who represents the values of our state, and today her statue joins the company of so many of our nation’s great and historic figures. I’m grateful for the work of sculptor Nilda Comas, Bethune-Cookman University, the Bethune Statuary Fund and Chair Nancy Lohman for all of their hard work leading to this historic day. Today is a day we all have been working toward for years. I am so proud to welcome the statue into our nation’s Capitol, and I hope that American families will learn from her legacy for decades to come.” Read more HERE.

Sen. Rick Scott on Senate Floor: Biden’s Attack on U.S. Energy Threatens America's Future
Senator Rick Scott spoke on the Senate floor about the devastating impact Joe Biden’s Green New Deal policies and campaign against energy independence is having on Florida families.

Sens. Rick Scott & Jeanne Shaheen to Secretary Yellen: Americans Deserve Transparency When Trading Within CCP Financial Markets
Senators Rick Scott and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) wrote a letter to Secretary Yellen requesting information regarding the potential financial exposures that American investors face when trading in financial markets influenced by the Chinese Communist Party. Communist China benefits greatly from American capital, but corporations controlled by the regime often provide unreliable or manipulated financial data in an attempt to validate their claims, leaving American investors vulnerable. Senators Scott and Shaheen recently introduced the Protecting American Capital Act which would require the U.S. Treasury to submit an annual risk assessment to Congress regarding American investors’ financial exposure in the Communist Chinese economy. Read more HERE.

Sen. Rick Scott on PPI Inflation Report: Biden’s Inflation Nightmare Can’t End Soon Enough
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 over the year, increasing 11.3% in June.
Senator Rick Scott said, “Joe Biden’s raging inflation is bankrupting families across this nation. The inflation hitting families right now is Joe Biden’s fault – full stop. Let’s think about how this is hurting families in my state. At current inflation levels, Florida households are paying more than $9,000 extra per year for everyday goods like groceries and gas since Biden took office. That’s nearly $800 in extra costs EVERY MONTH and what does Joe Biden want to do next? Raise taxes on EVERY AMERICAN FAMILY. It’s a shameful plan, especially given that Biden’s incompetence and failure to stop inflation has already created another new tax—an inflation incompetence tax—for every hardworking Floridian. Biden needs to face the facts: his reckless spending is exactly what is causing this crisis, his war on American energy is significantly contributing to rising gas prices, and hardworking Americans, and poor families like mine growing up, are struggling more than ever. Americans are smart—they know Joe Biden is asleep at the wheel. He needs to wake up or resign immediately.” Read more HERE.

Sen. Rick Scott Issues Statement Following Loss of Ivana Trump
Senator Rick Scott issued the following statement on the passing of Ivana Trump:
Senator Rick Scott said, “Ann and I are heartbroken to learn of the passing of Ivana Trump. She will always be remembered for her success in the business world, but those who knew her saw that nothing was more important to Ivana than her family. It is through her children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric, and her ten grandchildren, that her incredible legacy will live on. Our hearts and prayers are with the Trump family and all who knew and loved her.” Read more HERE.

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